  • ABA asks US Senate committee to halt Kavanaugh vote till FBI probe

As Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, people on Twitter debated if he was rudely interrupting Democratic senators asking him questions or just forcefully pushing back against the explosive allegations against him.

The abrupt developments gave senators, the White House and millions of Americans following the drama at home hardly a chance to catch their breath after Thursday's emotional Senate hearing featuring Kavanaugh angrily defending himself and accuser Christine Blasey Ford determinedly insisting he assaulted her when they were teens.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation by Dr. Ford", Kavanaugh said in an opening statement during which his voice shook with anger, repeatedly fighting back tears.

"I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes", he wrote. Swetnick, represented by Michael Avenatti who fought for porn actress Stormy Daniels, said in a statement which was submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was drugged and "gang raped". His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting.

"The Senate must vote", the U.S President wrote. And then, as no doubt was expected if not planned, came a long series of false last-minute smears created to scare me and drive me out of the process before any hearing occurred.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace", he said.

Corker explained his decision by stating that Ford had failed to provide sufficient evidence for her allegation and that Kavanaugh remains extremely well qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.

To reinforce his point after both Blasey and Kavanaugh said with 100-percent certainty they were telling the truth, Dershowitz told a story about a rabbi: Acting as a marriage counselor, the rabbi hears the complaints of the wife and tells her she's right. If all Democrats oppose the nomination, just two GOP senators would sink Kavanaugh's confirmation if they were to oppose him as well. The boys' laughter was "indelible in the hippocampus", she said, using her scientific expertise to describe how memories are stored in the brain and adding, "It's locked in there".

Through the final stretch of the hearing, Mitchell was not given the opportunity to probe Kavanaugh's testimony as she was with Ford's.

Following Thursday's testimony, Trump - who a day earlier had defended Kavanaugh but left the door open that he might reconsider his support - praised the nominee. Some Democrats have called on Kavanaugh to withdraw and have said an FBI investigation is needed before any Senate confirmation vote. "I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford.

Mr Kavanaugh's ascendance to the high court could help lock in a conservative majority for a generation, shaping dozens of rulings on abortion, regulation, the environment and more.

"Each appointment to our nation's highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote", Carlson told the committee, which voted along party lines on Friday to approve sending the nomination to the full Senate, although soon afterward it called for additional investigations.

Judge directed the letter, "under penalty of felony", to Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Diane Feinstein, through his attorney Barbara Van Gelder. "Last time I was here, I told this committee that a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure", he told the lawmakers.

Many female protesters wore teal, which has been designated as the color for sexual assault awareness and prevention.

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher, a volunteer with a liberal advocacy group. "I intend to vote for you and I hope everybody who is fair-minded will", he told Kavanaugh. "This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics", said Senator Lindsey Graham of SC.
