Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers say they paid for polygraph test

Kavanaugh-Ford hearing: A dramatic lesson on gender roles

President Donald Trump appeared optimistic following a contentious public hearing and urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to push for a vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Mr Kavanaugh said he did not watch Blasey Ford's testimony but he categorically denied her allegations.

Hours later, Kavanaugh entered the hearing room fuming.

The Democratic senators will have free reign to ask questions.

"I definitely saw the rape culture in action when I was an undergrad at Yale", said Paterson, whose time at the university did not overlap with when Kavanaugh was there.

"This is not a job interview", Graham told him. Dean Heller did, and suggesting, like Utah Sen.

In an election-season battle being waged along a polarized nation's political and cultural fault lines, Trump and most Republicans have rallied behind Kavanaugh, whose confirmation would provide a chance to cement the conservative majority of the court for a generation.

Durbin was forceful in his assertion that Mark Judge, whom Ford alleges was also present and participated in the accused assault, should provide testimony of his own before the committee. Lindsey Graham of SC, who told the judge straight out, "You've got nothing to apologize for".

In his remarks, Kavanaugh again fully denies all accusations of sexual misconduct raised against him.

"He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me". "We are just here to support Dr. Blasey Ford and let her know that she is not alone". "I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me". This was an extremely hard thing for me to do, but I felt I couldn't not do it'. Then she quickly faded away.

After telling Ford that she seemed to have given a clear picture of the alleged assault, Mitchell shifted her focus to the last two months, since Ford first told her representative in the House about her claim.

A few rounds of questioning in, Grassley asked her if she was still set for a break after another few rounds.

President Trump’s Rage-Filled, Off-The-Wall Press Conference Inspired Some Head-Swiveling Reactions
He said that he was looking forward to the accuser and Kavanaugh testifying during Thursday's Senate hearing. It's only the second time he's held a solo news conference on United States soil as president.

"You're not guilty if someone makes an allegation against you in this country".

It was surely the most explosive and surreal confirmation hearing since Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill in 1991.

They have accused Ms Ford and the other women of making unproven allegations and have questioned why they had not publicly revealed them for decades. The president and his team initially monitored the proceedings on cable news as they flew back to Washington from NY on Air Force One.

When it was Klobuchar's turn, she too asked Ford to share her most acute memories.

"And you were the object of the laughter?"

Corrale said, "They are afraid that the perpetrator might have threatened them. And you have to address that one issue only asking two questions", he said.

From the vantage point of President Trump and the White House, the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh unspooled Thursday like a play in two acts.

Drafted in from Arizona, Rachel Mitchell was prodding at times over particulars.

Should that fail and Kavanaugh be confirmed, it would amount, to a "devastating blow" - at least for now.

"In an airplane", Ford replied.

During the hearing, Donald Trump Jr. in a tweet made the argument more bluntly.

Right-wing commentator Mike Cernovich tweeted, "Ford seems kind". "Can't do it to testify but for vacation, well it's not a problem at all".
