Flake confronted by two female protesters after announcing he'll back Kavanaugh

Flake confronted by two female protesters after announcing he'll back Kavanaugh

The Senate judiciary committee, where the initial vote on Kavanaugh will be held, is narrowly split with an 11-10 Republican majority.

The judiciary committee could vote in several ways: recommending the full Senate approve the nomination, rejecting the nomination, or making no recommendation. "Each appointment to our nation's highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote".

There were two distinct juries whose opinions of Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who testified that he sexually assaulted her, matter: the millions of Americans who followed the proceedings and will vote in a bit more than a month, and more immediately the small handful of senators who remain undecided about whether or not they'll vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Both told their stories to the Senate Judiciary Committee during a almost nine-hour-long hearing.

Meanwhile, there were signs the remarkable testimony before the panel in which Kavanaugh angrily declared his innocence and Ford calmly recounted the moment in which she says he attacked her had registered negatively with two organizations whose support Kavanaugh had earlier received.

Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) announced Friday he would vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, the backlash was immediate.

At the time of its endorsement, America Magazine's editors hailed Kavanaugh as the champion who could be the Supreme Court's fifth vote to overturn the ruling of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in all 50 states.

"I want to watch, I want to see, "Mr Trump said at a news conference in NY on Wednesday, adding that he was "open to changing my mind".

"Don't look away from me".

Flake is not running for re-election in the 2018 midterm elections.

"Those kinds of things, they seem to be incredibly persistent, more reliable than narrative memory", Emerson said.




Nelson, who is not a member of the Judiciary Committee, was not a part of Thursday's hearing and hasn't met face-to-face with Kavanaugh since Trump nominated him for the lifetime position in July. "I have never done this to her or to anyone".

"The FBI has conducted...six successful vettings of Brett Kavanaugh throughout his career".

We all know why: Kavanaugh does not want the one person Ford claims was in the room during the sexual assault - the one person who probably knows the most about Kavanaugh's general conduct at the time, which Kavanaugh has falsified with his choirboy routine - to face serious questioning by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or cross examination by Judiciary Committee Senators. Viewing the hearing from their desks, some aides expressed concerns that Ford appeared highly credible, though others noted there were still gaps in her decades-old story.

Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Trump, told "CBS This Morning" Friday that she found Ford's testimony "compelling" and "very sympathetic".

The four are seen as swing votes that could decide the outcome of the closely contested nomination. "The best of the bad resolutions available in this dilemma is for Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to be withdrawn". Graham claims that not voting for Kavanaugh now is tantamount to legitimizing Democratic tactics.

As well as his calendar, Mr Kavanaugh's high school yearbook came under close scrutiny.

Sanders, like many Republicans, then cast blame on the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying they "used and exploited this process".

President Donald Trump walks across the South Lawn on return from New York City today at the White House in Washington. "His testimony was powerful, honest and riveting", he tweeted.

Soon, a second protester, who also identified herself as a sexual assault survivor, joined in.

America Magazine is a weekly magazine published by Jesuits, a Catholic religious order for men also known as the Society of Jesus. Their change of heart is notable because Kavanaugh graduated from Georgetown Prep, a Jesuit school. It added that, "Somewhere in the distant past, ". It now involves the symbolic meaning of his nomination and confirmation in the #MeToo era.
