As alleged sexual assault victim Christine Blasey Ford prepares to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow morning against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Ford's attorneys have just released her full polygraph examination report.
Rambling and often incoherent, President Trump made his United Nations press conference mainly about himself and not about defending his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. He has been accused of sexual misconduct by three other women and has also denied those allegations.
Thursday, Kavanaugh is set to testify in a hearing that will also feature Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who has said he sexually assaulted her while he was drunk at a party in their high school years.
"Describe her appearance", Kavanaugh said. "I really believe that", said Graham. "It will be interesting to hear what she has to say".
Mitchell led Ford through a detailed recollection of the events she says occurred on the day of the alleged incident.
"So when you say does it affect me in terms of my thinking with respect to Judge Kavanaugh, absolutely", Trump said.
Democrats also said they have had no coordination with Blasey and her team, while Kavanaugh's confirmation is being handled by the White House, which is in close touch with Republicans on Capitol Hill. "I've had many false charges". At one point, Trump referred to a Kurdish reporter as "Mr. Kurd".
Mr. Montgomery said last weekend he received a call from two Senate Judiciary Committee staffers inquiring about Ms. Mitchell's availability and qualifications.
Gardner said in a statement Wednesday evening that his Denver office received the letter on Monday, and it "contained no names, no address, and no contact info".
She did not specifically claim Mr Kavanaugh took part or that he was aware of her rape, but said that he and other boys in his circle engaged in similar behaviour.
"I believed he was going to rape me".
"I look forward to hearing from her".
Ford was the first to step forward with allegations and claimed Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and attempted to pull off her clothes while both were high school students in 1982.
Ford admits to not remembering all the details but wants to share the ones she does remember. "I don't know who this is and this never happened". USA TODAY was not able to independently vet the claims.
Avenatti, the lawyer who represents adult film actress Stormy Daniels, has made it clear he is exploring a bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Grassley complained that lawyers for other accusers have not provided information to his panel and said, "The committee can't do an investigation if attorneys are stonewalling".
Transcripts of private interviews with committee investigators show they asked Kavanaugh about two previously undisclosed accusations received by Senate offices. Not only are the political implications huge, with a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court at stake, the hearing is likely to continue the national conversation over treatment of women that has been taking place since the beginning of the #MeToo movement.
