Julie Swetnick, new Brett Kavanaugh accuser, comes forward with disturbing affidavit

America Magazine, a major Catholic Jesuit outlet, rescinded its endorsement of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court Thursday night after a day of testimony from both the nominee and Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses him of sexual assault. "Here's my understanding, if you lived a good life people would recognize it". As Ford discussed her allegation in searing detail, numerous senators leaned forward in their chairs, their elbows on the desk, listening intently to the psychology professor's soft, nearly girlish voice.

For his part, Kavanaugh testified he was "100 per cent certain" the alleged incident did not occur.

Kavanaugh then accused Durbin of asking a "phony question", saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would "just go and do what you're doing: ask questions and then type up a report".

She cannot only relate to Ford's experience, the Yale graduate can also back up descriptions of the misogynistic culture at the elite university's DKE fraternity to which Brett Kavanaugh belonged to during his time at Yale.

Trump was reportedly unhappy with Kavanaugh's attempt to get out ahead of yesterday's hearing by portraying himself in a Fox News interview as an innocent choirboy who never had any sexual contact in high school, let alone a person who could be capable of the kind of violent attack Christine Blasey Ford has alleged.

Throughout the hearing, at least five Democratic lawmakers asked Kavanaugh about opening an FBI investigation on at least nine different occasions.

Later, when Mitchell said, "Is that an objection, counsel?" in response to a comment from one of Ford's attorneys, Sen.

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years of state prison along with a fine of $25,000 plus the costs of prosecution. Roughly 60 women have come forward to say the disgraced comedian committed sex crimes against them, including rape.

On Wednesday President Trump said he could withdraw Judge Kavanaugh's nomination if he "thought he was guilty of something like this".

GOP Senators on the committee believe they have enough votes to advance Kavanaugh's nomination to a full Senate vote.

As he referenced Booker's remarks earlier this summer that supporting Kavanaugh would be complicit in "evil", the New Jersey Democrat sat in his seat, expressionless.

"This is a circus, the consequences will extend long past my nomination", he said.

Judge Kavanaugh has yet to respond formally to this specific allegation. The point, as Graham said, is that Democrats only want to drag this out so there is time for more fake accusers to come out of the woodwork. "I don't know. Have you?" Republicans control the Senate 51-49 and can lose only one vote. Whether Mitchell was seeking to undermine or cast doubt on that claim was unclear.

"My family and my name have been permanently destroyed by vicious and false accusations", Kavanaugh said.

And the openly undecided one - Flake - indicated that he may never be fully comfortable with what he ultimately decides. She says that he and his friend Mark Judge would "target" a vulnerable girl, get her drunk, and then pull her into a side bedroom where they could have sex with her.
