"It was hard for me to breathe and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me". "I don't have all the answers, and I don't remember as much as I would like to", she says in the testimony. Kavanaugh told staffers they did not take place, and nobody has come forward to speak publicly about them.

"This is a disaster for the Republicans", Wallace said, noting that Democrats were landing "haymakers" with their follow-up questions to Ford.

In response, an aide to Democrats on the Judiciary Committee reportedly unloaded on Senate Republicans: "Republicans are flailing", the aide said, according to NBC News.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has gaveled into session Thursday's dramatic hearing with Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He said this has shaped his view of the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Ford says her strongest memory of the time she alleges Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teens is the laughter. The apparent constituent of Whitehouse's who made the phone call stated he realized that Kavanaugh was one of the men allegedly involved "when he saw Kavanaugh's high school yearbook photo on television over the weekend".

Ganesh also denied that goons had come on set and vandalised Tanushree's auto and harassed her family. He also added that he doesn't remember what happened that day as the incident is from 10 years ago.

She gave details of how information surrounding the incident, including her name and that of Kavanaugh, became public, saying that she "struggled with a awful choice" when trying to decide whether to release her account of events when the press reported Kavanaugh's confirmation was virtually certain.

Two Republicans close to the White House say Trump expressed sympathy for Kavanaugh and his family for having to listen to Ford's tearful recounting of allegations.

Meanwhile, President Trump has acknowledged that the accusations of sexual misconduct swirling around his Supreme Court nominee have a personal side for him. Now a judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh seemed assured of confirmation until Ford and several other accusers emerged in recent weeks.

Trump said he was skeptical because he personally has been the target of "false statements" in the past made by various women.

Lawmakers are expected to next hear from Kavanaugh, who has denied the allegations.

"Brett's assault on me drastically altered my life for a very long time", she testified. She looked down again.

The other, Julie Swetnick, has accused Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women, among other things.

"In Room 226 in the Dirksen Senate Office building, Kavanaugh will effectively stand trial after three women came forward with accusations about his conduct as a teenager in the alcohol-fueled youth party culture of the early 1980s".

"His allies painted him as a champion of women's rights and empowerment", she added.

Democrats called the release of this news "shameful and the height of irresponsibility". 'It's a job interview for Judge Kavanaugh'. Republicans control the Senate 51-49 and can't afford more than one defection to ensure confirmation without Democratic support.

Deputy Attorney General suggested secretly taping Trump
John McCain, who died away last month, for sinking the GOP health care bill, though he did not mention the late war hero by name. Sessions recused from that issue soon after he took office, to Trump's dismay, and Rosenstein later appointed Mueller.

"We have lit a match", said retiring Sen. "They called my bosses and coworkers and left me many messages.I chose to speak out publicly to a journalist who had originally responded to the tip I had sent to "The Washington Post" and who had gained my trust".
