Flake's Yes Makes Kavanaugh Confirmation More Likely

Flake's Yes Makes Kavanaugh Confirmation More Likely

Judge Kavanaugh has yet to respond formally to this specific allegation.

The magazine said that Kavanaugh's hearing was now more than a battle of policy issues: "The hearings and the committee's deliberations are now also a bellwether of the way the country treats women when their reports of harassment, assault and abuse threaten to derail the careers of powerful men".

"I certainly hope so and I certainly think so", she said.

Ford, a California psychology professor making her first public remarks about the incident, choked up occasionally describing the alleged attack.

When asked by the press who had caught up with the confrontation if Flake had anything to say, he simply said: 'There have been a lot of questions here'. She is "100 percent" certain it was Kavanaugh.

"Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him".

"In 10 years prosecuting all sorts of cases, from mafia to murder to white collar, I NEVER had a more credible witness than Dr. Ford", Daniel S. Goldman, an NBC News legal analyst and fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice, tweeted.

It reads "Go to Timmy's for Skis", which Mr Kavanaugh said likely meant beers. They added that Trump expressed some frustration at the process - and the staff work - that led Kavanaugh to this point. When Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota asked if he ever drank so much he blacked out, he snapped, "Have you?"

"I think it was terrible what Dr. Ford had to go through yesterday and equally bad what Judge Kavanaugh" had to go through, she said.

What happened to the prosecutor?

Mr Kavanaugh shared his high school calendar with the Senate committee as supporting evidence that he did not attend a party or drink on weekdays during that time. Then she quickly faded away. McGahn, who is set to depart his post in coming weeks, had advocated for Kavanaugh, seeing his confirmation as the crowning achievement of his tenure - and part of a decades-long effort to install more conservatives on the high court. "That's not right", Mitchell said.

He said: "I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

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

Republicans' margin for error in the full Senate is slim.

In according Kavanaugh the rating, which was released late last month, the ABA noted that it had evaluated him for qualities such as "integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament".

Shortly after the announcement, Flake was walking into an elevator when two women ran up to him and stood blocking the doors.

Graham cautioned them against voting no. He accused Democrats of an "unethical sham" and warning Republicans that if they vote not to confirm Kavanaugh, they would legitimize "the most despicable thing I've ever seen in my time in politics".
