Kavanaugh's claim that witnesses refuted Ford

A handwritten message was spotted Wednesday in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room where Christine Blasey Ford would sit

Republicans appear to have the votes to push Judge Kavanaugh through the committee on a party-line vote, and they are moving to speed him to the Senate floor, saying Thursday's testimony by Christine Blasey Ford alleging a sexual assault 36 years ago was compelling, but ultimately unsubstantiated.

The editors of America said Christine Blasey Ford's testimony "clearly demonstrated both the seriousness of her allegation of assault by Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and the stakes of this question for the whole country".

The reversal is significant given Kavanaugh has repeatedly cited his Catholic faith and Jesuit education in defending himself against Ford's accusations. "Ms. Keyser said under penalty of felony she does not know me, does not ever recall being at a party with me ever". The American Bar Association sent a letter to committee chairman Chuck Grassley Thursday night arguing that the vote should be halted until the FBI can complete its investigation.

"I have never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever", Kavanaugh told the senators.

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham lost his temper during his time to question Kavanaugh.

"But let me tell you when it comes to this".

Asked about the judge's chances at tomorrow morning's vote, Sen.

Ford said her motivation to come forward with her story was entirely unrelated to politics.




But his vote seems to lean toward Kavanaugh.

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.

The New York Times says the most likely swing votes are undecided Republican senators - Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Jeff Flake of Arizona - and one Democrat, Joe Manchin III of West Virginia. Corker says he plans "to vote to confirm him".

President Donald Trump, who is in NY attending the annual UN General Assembly session, came out in support of his Supreme Court nominee and slammed Avenatti.

A photo of the people sitting behind Kavanaugh went viral on Twitter, where many saw it as a wider symbol of how women were reacting to Kavanaugh and to the visible emotion that Ford displayed during her testimony earlier in the day.

Former President George W Bush has been advocating for Kavanaugh with wavering senators in recent days, according to a person familiar with Bush's outreach who was not authorized to speak publicly.

The bitter fight over Kavanaugh's nomination is unfolding just weeks before the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to seize majority control of Congress from the Republicans.
