How to Watch the Brett Kavanaugh Hearing

For sexual assault survivors news of allegations against Brett Kavanaugh and the sentencing of Bill Cosby can trigger painful memories

Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, has said the committee's own investigation will suffice.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", Kavanaugh said in a statement Wednesday.

On September 26, Michael Avenatti released a sworn statement from Julie Swetnick, saying she witnessed abusive behaviour by Kavanaugh and Judge during high school parties in the early 1980s. "I think it's going to be a very important day in the history of our country".

Kavanaugh denied having a "sexual or physical encounter of any kind" with Ford.

If Democrats manage to defeat Kavanaugh's nomination, Americans on the right will not only be furious that Republicans caved, they will be inclined to believe that future allegations of sexual misconduct are nothing more than political weapons, and that conservatives seeking high office can not expect the presumption of innocence, due process, or anything close to a fair hearing.

Ford said he was intoxicated at the time and he covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream. Grassley said it was up to the Senate to assess the credibility of Kavanaugh and Ford. He also said, however, that his mind could be changed after watching the public hearings. "My responsibility is to tell you the truth".

"I am not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time", he wrote. I waited and when I did not hear them come back up the stairs, I left the bathroom, went down the same stairwell, through the living room and left the house.

Trump and some other Republicans described the allegations as part of a last-minute "smear" campaign, though the president indicated that he will be paying close attention to the hearing.

Swetnick said she was a victim of one of those incidents in the early 1980s and that Kavanaugh and Judge had been present, though she did not say whether they had sex with her. "I don't know who this is and this never happened", Kavanaugh said in a statement issued through the White House.




The previously unknown interviews could add a new layer to the evolving saga on the eve of a possible explosive hearing between Kavanaugh and Ford, though it's unknown whether the men's claims are being taken seriously.

It further said that if chosen for the designation in the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh would have a lot of power over the lives of working women in the future.

If his nomination clears the panel, it must win confirmation from the full Senate, which Republicans narrowly control 51-49.

"What they have endured ought to be considered by all of us as unacceptable and a poor reflection on the state of civility in our democracy", Mr Grassley said. She claimed that he thrust his penis into her face and forced her to touch it when she pushed it away.

"I tried to yell for help", Ford testified.

She alleged that Kavanaugh and others while in high school spiked the drinks of girls at parties with intoxicants to make it easier for them to be gang raped. That means that a handful of moderate Republican senators who have not announced whether or not they support Kavanaugh could determine his fate.

Deborah Ramirez, who accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her while at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale University, shared her message through her attorney's twitter account.

Eleven days ago, Dr. Ford publicly accused me of committing a serious wrong more than 36 years ago when we were both in high school.
