  • For sexual assault survivors news of allegations against Brett Kavanaugh and the sentencing of Bill Cosby can trigger painful memories

Ford has said Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school, a charge Judge has denied and said he has no recollection of.

According to a committee aide, in an email to Avenatti on Wednesday, Republican committee staff said that "yesterday committee investigators interviewed Judge Kavanaugh again, under penalty of felony".

In her declaration, Adela Gildo-Mazzon said Ford told her about the alleged assault during a June 2013 meal at a restaurant in Mountain View, California, and contacted Ford's attorneys on September 16 to tell them Ford had confided in her five years ago.

In the other two, Ford did not name Kavanaugh but said she was assaulted by a federal judge. If he's going to have that seat legitimately, all of these things should be investigated because, from what I experienced firsthand, I don't think he belongs on the Supreme Court. After that, there will be one round of questions from senators, with five minutes allotted per person, alternating from Republicans and Democrats in order of seniority, and senators can give their time to another senator or outside counsel. She said Kavanaugh held her down, put his hand over her mouth to silence her, and tried to remove her clothes. A vote in the full Senate could happen as early as next Tuesday, senior Senate Republicans have said. "I'm going to be watching, believe it or not", Trump said of the hearing, which is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. ET. "This is how I met Brett Kavanaugh, the boy who sexually assaulted me". "My responsibility is to tell the truth". I waited and when I did not hear them come back up the stairs, I left the bathroom, went down the same stairwell, through the living room and left the house.

"It's not to say that there can not be a situation where a person has risen above these kinds of behavior or teenage behavior", Hill told NPR, "but is to say that what we have is a person speaking the privilege of representing the laws of this country, and when that individual is reasonably believed to have broken those laws - and then not been truthful about it - to me, that's a disqualification". "In approximately 1982, I became the victim of one of these "gang" or "train" rapes where Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh were present", Swetnick alleged.

"And he's been treated very unfairly by the Democrats", Trump said Wednesday. "I became aware of efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to spike the "punch" at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'No, '" she said.

"I tried to yell for help", Ford testified. The events Ford describes supposedly took place 36 years ago, yet she never mentioned them to anyone-not her parents, not her friends, not even her husband-until 2012, when it came up during a couple's therapy session. USA TODAY was not able to independently vet the claims. She said he was also verbally abusive and would make "crude, sexual comments" to girls in order to "demean, humiliate, and embarrass them".

Ford was the first of three women to have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in his teens.

As the future of the country's highest court hangs in the balance, Kavanaugh and his accusers will be under intense scrutiny from all sides.

"I felt so enraged", said Carola Lewis, a Kavanaugh supporter from Rockville, Maryland, who came to a rally on the Capitol in support of Kavanaugh an hour and a half before the hearing was slated to start.

That means that a handful of moderate Republican senators who have not announced whether or not they support Mr Kavanaugh could determine his fate. He also faces a second accusation of sexual assault from Deborah Ramirez, who claims Kavanaugh exposed himself and pushed his genitals into her face at a drunken party during the 1983-84 academic year at Yale University.
