Senate investigators questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh about two new claims of sexual misconduct, including one from an anonymous Colorado tipster who says Kavanaugh shoved an unnamed woman up against a wall "aggressively and sexually" in 1998.
One take away that stands out is Dr. Ford speaking on remembering being laughed at by Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge during the attack. She said further that over a series of parties, she saw Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s". "I know all too painfully that being a person of faith does not stop men from being sexual predators".
Ford politely answered them - at times apologizing for conflicts like saying she hadn't again spoken to other people were at the party where she says Kavanaugh assaulted her, and then following up that she did speak again to a woman who was there.
Ford went on to explain in detail what she said happened in the summer of 1982 between herself and Brett Kavanaugh, who she described as 'the boy who sexually assaulted me'. Democrats have continued calling for delays to the hearing and the committee vote until the FBI investigates allegations against Kavanaugh.
But the timing of the accusations, released by Avenatti just before a Senate Judiciary Committee vote which has been scheduled by Republicans for Friday, has raised some eyebrows. "I think it's going to be a very important day in the history of our country".

Judge Kavanaugh, a 53-year-old federal appeals court judge, is President Donald Trump's nomination for the vacant seat in the US Supreme Court.
"If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yes, sure", Trump said at a press conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY.
"When Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh and his original accuser Christine Blasey Ford deliver dueling testimony on Thursday, they will conjure drama of an intensity unusual even in the Trump administration". Ford added that she yelled and tried to get away as Kavanaugh groped her and tried to take off her clothes.
"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", he said in a statement.
Zimmer Says Vikings in Full Support of Everson Griffen Through 'Tough Times'
After a scary series of incidents on Saturday, Griffen remained away from the team on Tuesday and out of action indefinitely. The incident report states that hotel staff believed Griffen was possibly under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said the committee staffers have tried to investigate each of the claims as they have come up.
Republicans were so cognizant of that imbalance, some Democrats charged, that in an unusual move they hired a female outside counsel to conduct the questioning of Ford on their behalf.

Ford, who first made her allegations known in a letter to members of the Judiciary Committee, provided a detailed account of the alleged assault during her opening statement.
