Senate GOP tries to push Kavanaugh over the finish line

"It could take place Friday or it could not. That kind of depends upon what happens tomorrow" the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman said

Design agency Godfrey Dadich Partners says the ad was crafted in the same style as a 1991 full-page ad where 1,600 black women showed support for Anita Hill as she accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

These allegations prove that Brett Kavanaugh is a serial sexual predator and should have no place serving on the Supreme Court, or in any other capacity as a judge.

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, another member of the Judiciary Committee, said he still expects the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday.

A third woman came forward Wednesday to accuse Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, saying he was physically abusive toward girls in high school and present at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a "gang" rape.

"[Democrats] are actually con artists, because they know how quality this man is and they've destroyed a man's reputation, and they want to destroy it even more", Trump told journalists in NY.

"They go into the back room and talk to each other and laugh at what they're getting away with", Trump said.

For a time, Trump told confidents that he did not need to wade into the specific allegations since they did not involve him, although they did evoke sexual misconduct allegations against him. I don't know who this is and this never happened, ' Kavanaugh said in a statement issued through the White House.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said Thursday night that he planned to review Kavanaugh and Ford's testimony overnight before making a final decision.

In the face of the new allegations against Kavanaugh, the Democrats of the Senate Judiciary Committee have called on Trump to either withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination or to direct the FBI to reopen an investigation into his background. Patty Murray of Washington said of Trump's characterization. She has said he forced her into a room at a high school party, held her on a bed and tried removing her clothes as he muffled her mouth with his hands. This, she says, would "cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'No.'" Certain girls were allegedly targeted and "taken advantage of".

On the other side, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Kavanaugh should withdraw his nomination.

Swetnick said that she believes the behavior she claimed to witness from him in the 1980s should disqualify him from the court, and that the allegations made against him need to be investigated. Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who alleges she was paid to keep a sexual relationship with President Donald Trump quiet.

"Well it does impact my opinion, and you know why? I am innocent of this charge".

"I don't want to be in a position where people say, 'No, thanks".

"I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends". People want fame, they want money, they want whatever.

Elizabeth Rasor, a former girlfriend of Brett Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, said on Wednesday that she's willing to speak with the Federal Bureau of Investigation about her claim that Judge told her about having group sex with a drunk woman in high school.

By the end of the press conference, though, Trump had returned to a defense of Kavanaugh and didn't respond to a question about what kind of signal he was sending to young men by possibly dismissing Kavanaugh's behavior.

The allegation of misconduct is completely inconsistent with the rest of my life. "This has everything to do with our country", the president said.
