It was not clear where and when Ford had identified Smyth as being present at the party.
"I would really want to see her". First, on whether a hearing addressing the allegations should take place with Kavanaugh if Ford is not there. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone, ' he said in a statement provided by the White House.
Republicans are rejecting Ford's call for an FBI investigation, putting the onus back on her to decide whether she'll testify anyway. "More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner that Dr. Ford describes".
Brett Kavanaugh listens to Senators on day three of his confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee to be Associate Justice of the Supreme Court on September 6, 2018. "Would you support such a thing?" An accounting of where and under what circumstances the boys met Christine Blasey Ford. Women have a responsibility to be sure they're accusing the right man before they set out to shred a man's reputation and ruin his career with allegations filled with holes and fuzzy on details. One of her fellow classmates to do so was Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the actress of Seinfeld and Veep fame. They did not meet Christine Blasey Ford in biology class.
Ford alleges that at a party when both were teenagers in the early 1980s, an intoxicated Kavanaugh trapped her in a bedroom, pinned her on a bed, tried to undress her and placed his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. That sounds to me like the kind of people you keep bumping into at... parties.
Former special counsel Ryan Goodman has pointed out how "damaging" Judge's writings could be to Kavanaugh.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who was able to prevent Barack Obama from confirming a Supreme Court nominee in 2015, is accusing the Democrats of dirty tricks during the process for Kavanaugh. Majority had attended local all-girl high schools when Kavanaugh was at Georgetown Prep. Are we to believe that Ford can recall a party where Kavanaugh was present, but Kavanaugh cannot recall any party where Ford was present... and yet he's sure that he was not at the party Ford is talking about? "I am, anyway, and I think most of us are".
"I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate", said Booker, a possible 2020 Democratic candidate for president, at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
The lawyers for Ford predicted the hearing, as now scheduled, "would include interrogation by senators who appear to have made up their minds" that she is "mistaken" and mixed up. They're very likely putting the pressure on and promising her the sun, moon and the stars, in exchange for using her as a political prop in a last ditch effort to sink Kavanaugh's nomination, and provide momentum into the midterm elections. Who else was there?
Ernst is retired combat veteran who's talked publicly about facing sexual harassment in the military during more than two decades of service, and she's worked in the Senate to combat sex abuse. These men are not being forthcoming with what they know.
