New ANONYMOUS sexual assault complaint against Brett Kavanaugh emerges

The Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday said Christine Blasey Ford's testimony on Brett Kavanaugh was New ANONYMOUS sexual assault complaint against Brett Kavanaugh emerges

After listening to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's raw and emotional testimony over the course of several hours, the Senate Judiciary Committee got the chance to grill Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

"This has destroyed my family and my good name, a good name built up through decades of very hard work and public service at the highest levels of the American government", Kavanaugh said in a roar that overwhelmed the small Senate hearing room.

The mood was intense as Kavanaugh's voice filled the room for the extraordinary session, unlike Ford's quiet testimony. She also said that Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, witnessed the alleged assault and at times egged Kavanaugh on.

One after the other, Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh sat in the same chair before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, separated by less than an hour but a reality gulf so wide their conflicting accounts of what happened when they were teenagers can not be reconciled.

Kavanaugh did not agree to request an FBI investigation despite repeated calls for one from Democratic senators during the hearing. That is a tragedy, not just for him and for Ford, who, as Sen.

Jeff Flake. A frequent Trump critic who will retire from the Senate in January, Flake was complimentary toward Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing earlier this month.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC also mentioned the ABA's assessment during an impassioned defence of Judge Kavanaugh on Thursday.

The American Bar Association late Thursday urged the Judiciary committee and the full Senate to delay the vote until the Federal Bureau of Investigation has time to do a full background check on the claims made by Ford and other women.

Republicans are pushing to seat Kavanaugh before the November midterms, when Senate control could fall to the Democrats and a replacement Trump nominee could have even greater difficulty.

A person close to Kavanaugh confirmed he had complete control over his remarks: "It was not pre-cleared with the White House". He has denied all of the accusations, but it remained unclear how the dramatic testimony by Ford and Kavanaugh would affect his prospects. "You wouldn't go to the parties, because you knew it was risky".

"This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics", an outraged Graham said.

"If Senate Republicans proceed with his nomination, they will be prioritizing policy aims over a woman's report of an assault", they wrote. Whether Mitchell was seeking to undermine or cast doubt on that claim was unclear. It wasn't Kavanaugh's words, she said, but rather a sound.

And the openly undecided one - Flake - indicated that he may never be fully comfortable with what he ultimately decides. The psychology professor said she was 100% sure that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.

Mitchell continued: "Dr. Ford, do you expect the price of that polygraph to be passed on to you?"
