Judiciary to Vote on Kavanaugh Friday But His Confirmation Is Still Uncertain

Judiciary to Vote on Kavanaugh Friday But His Confirmation Is Still Uncertain

She also recounted how the alleged attack altered her life, describing anxiety and claustrophobia that prompted her to demand adding a second front door when her home was remodeled. You know, you had the testimony both from (Christine Blasey Ford) and from (Brett) Kavanaugh.

There are now 43 Republicans who have pledged their vote to Kavanaugh, seven short of the 50 votes needed in the Senate. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, in afternoon questioning, decried the nominee's treatment at the hands of Democrats and dared Republican senators to vote against him.

Meanwhile, a Democratic senator who is undecided on Kavanaugh's nomination said she needs to "fully digest" the committee hearing on a sexual assault allegation against him.

Recipient: Christine Blasey Ford wrote to Anna Eshoo, Christine Ford's local congresswoman, a Democrat, describing her account of being attacked by Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh broke down other times, including when he spoke of his childhood friends who have been forced into the spotlight and those who have stuck up for his reputation.

Murkowski, a supporter of abortion rights, may also disagree with Kavanaugh's fundamental views on Roe v. Wade. If approved, it would go to the full Senate, where Republicans hold a slim 51-49 edge.

During her opening remarks on Thursday, Ford said she was "terrified" to be there but felt it was her "civic duty".

The question is how the constellation of these influences, from the White House to Congress to passionate voters, will affect the Senate's vote on Kavanaugh, which could come as soon as Monday. On the Senate floor Wednesday, he indicated that his mind was not made up.

"The same way that I'm sure I'm talking to you right now", Ford said, "just basic memory functions".

Corker is another outgoing senator who has had his fair share of disagreements with Trump. Scott added that the Senate should wait to schedule a vote until after Ford's testimony.




The messages were directed at two audiences - one was Trump, who had backed Kavanaugh but left open the possibility that he would pull the nomination if he believed Blasey, and the other was the clutch of three or four senators whose votes seemed genuinely in play.

"

"I believed he was going to rape me."

".

"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". Some of these Democrats have indicated that they're still undecided on Kavanaugh.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is calling certain allegations against him a "joke" and a "farce".

During a break in the hearing, some of Kavanaugh's strongest supporters gave no indications of wavering. This for a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court and there's a special prosecutor involved, which is kind of interesting. Mitchell will join in and ask questions of Kavanaugh as well. "One hundred percent", she said. "It takes courage for any woman to speak up about sexual assault, and we need to respect Prof".

Should that fail and Kavanaugh be confirmed, it would amount, to a "devastating blow" - at least for now.

Mr Blumenthal also hit out at Trump for failing to authorise an FBI investigation into Blasey Ford's allegations.

Donnelly also voted for Gorsuch last spring, and the anti-abortion rights Democrat likely has no hard with Kavanaugh's views on Roe v. Wade.

She said both agreed to keep the letter confidential, but it was leaked to media outlets on September 14.

Asked his thoughts on Kavanaugh's testimony, Leahy responded: "I found it well rehearsed".
