Trump says his past accusers influence his thinking on Kavanaugh

The boys' laughter was "indelible in the hippocampus", she said, using her scientific expertise to describe how memories are stored in the brain and adding, "It's locked in there". "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes". He was having a hard time because he was inebriated...

"I believed he was going to rape me", Ford said.

Analysts said that while the hearing was always expected to be partisan, Thursday's testimony marked a remarkable devolution from which the Senate will struggle to recover.

His colleague Bret Baier said that hearing Ford's testimony was "a totally different thing" than reading about her allegation.

Say it louder for the people in the back: However we dress, wherever we go, YES means YES and NO means NO! Many were wearing shirts that read "I believe women", and some were holding up their hands.

"This is a circus, the consequences will extend long past my nomination", he said. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

On Wednesday, Trump spoke aloud what he's been mulling in private, acknowledging publicly for the first time that past allegations of sexual misconduct levelled against him colour his views on similar charges against other men, including Kavanaugh. Mitchell spent most of her time trying to clarify details of Ford's story, covering the night of the alleged assault and the professor's decision to come forward by confidentially telling her congressional representative and the Washington Post.

"But I did not drink beer to the point of blacking out and I did not sexually assault anyone", he said. At least five allegations of assault - all unsubstantiated - have been brought against Kavanaugh. Trump said in a tweet.

Through a campaign spokesman, Sununu said the Senate "should think carefully about the next steps in this process".

Body of missing North Carolina boy found
Gastonia Police Chief Robert Helton said 67 more investigators have joined in the search effort, bringing the total number to 330. Investigators have been playing a message with his parents' voices over loudspeakers, hoping to lure him out of the woods.

Sen. Kamala Harris said she had not heard Kavanaugh answer whether he was wiling to ask the White House to initiate an FBI investigation into the allegation.

The support for Kavanaugh though, seemed outnumbered by the the people at the Senate who turned out for Ford.

Ms Ford said the attack was seared in her memory and she was "100%" certain that it was Mr Kavanaugh who attacked her.

"God helps us all as Republicans", he told reporters. "We are here to commend her and also urge our leaders to make the right decision".

According to Fox News, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a statement late Wednesday announcing that they had met with a man who claimed responsibility for the alleged attack on Ford.

Gillers said Kavanaugh was "exhibiting the very uncontrolled anger that others have described as a problem he has when drunk, but he's not drunk".

The Supreme Court nominee is facing allegations claiming that he sexually assaulted Ford during a party while the two were in high school.

In a sworn statement, Swetnick said she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s".
