Both Kavanaugh and Ford testified under sworn oath. The results of that final vote remain uncertain, though one Senator who was seemingly on the fence announced his intention to confirm Kavanaugh Thursday.

Senators, many leaning forward and nodding as she spoke, were on the edge of their seats. The FBI is going to tell us what? When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from yelling.

"An executive business meeting is being noticed tonight in the event that a majority of the members are prepared to hold one on Friday", Taylor Foy, a spokesman for Grassley, said. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., asked her what she remembered. "The uproarious laughter between the two". "They were laughing with each other". The panel's Republican senators, all men, did not question her, assigning that task to Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor. When Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota asked if he ever drank so much he blacked out, he snapped, "Have you?" He called them out in every respect.

At a fundraiser at his hotel Wednesday, Trump said Kavanaugh "knocked it out of the park" and called the hearing "painful" to watch.

"I am innocent of this charge". "We mean no ill will".

Ford was seated at a table in the packed hearing room flanked by her lawyers, facing a bank of senators.

"This is a circus, the consequences will extend long past my nomination", he said. He decried his confirmation opposition as a "national disgrace".

Some experts say Ford's use of scientific brain function has helped lend to her credibility.

Venezuela’s Maduro hammers Washington but says he’s willing to meet Trump

Since McCain's passing-and despite the disrespect he was shown by Donald Trump-Graham has become increasingly close to the president.

But it was Republican Sen. "When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually".

Graham blasted Democrats toward the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with the Supreme Court nominee and accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

"What you want to do is destroy this guy's life", he railed at them.

"I can always be convinced", he said.

Then, he turned to Kavanaugh.

"I think back to when I was 8 years old and the Anita Hill hearings happening", said UH Downtown Assistant Professor Creshema Murray. Some of these Democrats have indicated that they're still undecided on Kavanaugh.

"Judge, judge, don't give up", he said.

The impending absence of Ronaldo from Monday's gala has further fueled speculation that the 2018 ward is for Modric . There was a great deal of confusion when Salah received the Puskas Award for his effort against Everton .

During the free-wheeling news conference, Mr Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh politically motivated. If Democrats gain control of the Senate, they could deny President Trump a Supreme Court nominee for the rest of his time in office.

Donnelly also voted for Gorsuch last spring, and the anti-abortion rights Democrat likely has no hard with Kavanaugh's views on Roe v. Wade. "It takes courage for any woman to speak up about sexual assault, and we need to respect Prof".

"When it comes where it happened, I still don't know". I wanted to be here that day.

"Probably refers to throwing up", Kavanaugh said.

He added that whatever the committee decides, he's "all in". But other senators already in the "yes" column could change their minds. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh. "My responsibility is to tell the truth". Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. "We'll never move beyond that".

He complained about the fact that Democratic lawmakers had access to Ford's letter alleging her sexual assault months before the allegations became public and declared that they have victimized Ford.

Then addressing the wavering Republican senators whose votes will determine this confirmation, Graham said, "To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics".
