The most memorable moments from Christine Blasey Ford's testimony

28 September 2018

Ford went public with her allegations against Kavanaugh on September 16, after Sen.

Judge Kavanaugh is thought to have denied the allegations contained in the letter.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

"I can be persuaded also", Trump said. Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired. "These are last-minute smears, pure and simple".

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

Criminal Act Of Adultery Overturned In India
India's Supreme Court has ruled a century-old adultery law is unconstitutional and discriminatory against women. Modi advocated amending the law to make it gender-neutral, while maintaining adultery as a criminal offense.

In her statement, Swetnick wrote that she first met Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, in 1980 or 1981, when she was in high school and attended "well over ten house parties" with both of them present.

Kavanaugh is now a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Ms Feinstein criticised Republicans who have rejected Democratic demands to slow Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process and let the FBI investigate all the allegations, saying: "What I don't understand is the rush to judgment".

Embattled SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh is facing two new sexual assault accusations, including raping a woman on a boat in 1985 and aggressively shoving a woman against the wall of a bar in a sexual way in 1998.

But he said he would not be "intimidated" into withdrawing his candidacy for a spot on the nine-member Supreme Court.

Russian Federation to "cool hotheads" by putting S-300s in Syria - English
He told Assad that Russian Federation will upgrade the Syrian air defenses and deliver an S-300 missile system to the Syrian army. Those moves prompted Netanyahu on Monday to warn Putin against "transferring advanced weapons systems into irresponsible hands".

Sometimes showing anger, other times fighting back tears, the conservative jurist launched a bristling attack on the "national disgrace" of his treatment by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Pat Leahy, who had sat on the same Judiciary panel during the Anita Hill hearing, asked about Ford's most enduring memory of the incident.

President Donald Trump has nominated Mr Kavanaugh for a vacancy on the Supreme Court, the body that has the final word on key issues like abortion and same-sex marriage.

Heitkamp stressed that a nonpartisan FBI investigation should be conducted to "bring greater clarity" to Ford's claim and Kavanaugh's denial. "He is just looking for attention and doesn't want people to look at his past record and relationships - a total low-life!" He dismissed the allegations as part of an attempt to get "revenge on behalf of the Clintons" for the 2016 election, and a "calculated and orchestrated political hit".

However he fervently denies allegations of abuse from several other woman. I never had any sexual or physical encounter of any kind with Dr Ford.

Mitchell's questions steered clear of the details of the alleged assault and focused at times on whether Ford was coordinating with Kavanaugh opponents.

Trump tells UN Security Council Iran must never gain a nuclear weapon
But Trump's fear of America being mocked on the global stage runs further back than the 2016 election. Rouhani said that the U.S. should either rectify its mistake or continue with this wrong process.

Ford's tearful recounting of allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school, led Trump to express sympathy for Kavanaugh and his family for having to listen to the testimony, according to two Republicans close to the White House but not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.
