  • Trump Michael Avenatti is a 'lowlife'

And as she spoke, a grim sense of fatalism descended over Trump and his orbit. I read that. They repeated the same thing. Ford delivered her testimony with deliberate certitude, though admitting gaps in her memory as she choked back tears at some points and said she "believed he was going to rape me".

"Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

The plans of a handful of other senators remain unknown.

Democrats on the committee praised Blasey Ford for coming forward and repeatedly questioned Mr Kavanaugh about his drinking habits in high school, asking if he had ever "blacked out" while drunk.

Heitkamp also voted Gorsuch onto the Supreme Court last year and faces an uphill election in her home state this year.

"The best way to do it is to have a trained interviewer talk to you one-on-one in a private setting, and to let you do the talking", she said. Swetnick said in a sworn statement that she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s".

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) emphasized that Blasey's claims were from Kavanaugh's teenage years.

In his remarks, Kavanaugh again fully denies all accusations of sexual misconduct raised against him. "I'm known to have a weak stomach and always have".

Kavanaugh started his testimony filled with anger and a message for Democrats.

As the day unfolded, White House aides and allies offered a mix of optimism and frustration. I hope that this isn't lost on people.

Republicans are pushing to seat Kavanaugh before the November midterms, when Senate control could fall to the Democrats and a replacement Trump nominee could have even greater difficulty.

John Kennedy of Louisiana said he had no comment.

Kavanaugh accuser says he doesn't belong on Supreme Court
Swetnick claimed she was gang raped and that Kavanugh was present at the time. He was in the room, during Christine Blakey Ford's sexual assault.

"He was an immature high schooler", Hatch said. Now a judge in the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, he seemed assured of confirmation until Ford and several other accusers emerged in recent weeks. "Still like beer. We drank beer".

During the hearing Brett Kavanaugh thanked Donald Trump for his steadfast support.

By the afternoon, this person added, Trump was ebullient.

During the hearing, Donald Trump Jr. in a tweet made the argument more bluntly. "Others in the GOP should take notice!"

He found it in Republican Sen.

Ms Feinstein criticised Republicans who have rejected Democratic demands to slow Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process and let the FBI investigate all the allegations, saying: "What I don't understand is the rush to judgment".

Graham's tirade was well-received inside the West Wing. Sanders tweeted that Graham "has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined". After huddling in the Capitol, senators said the Judiciary Committee will hold a Friday morning vote on whether to recommend Kavanaugh for confirmation.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Sen.

But on Thursday evening, Trump offered an indication of where he felt the nomination was headed.

"I think it's important that we distinguish between what's legitimate and serious and what clearly seems less so".

When asked by the media if the nomination come to the full Senate floor for a vote, Grassley responded "Depends on what happens tomorrow".
