She cannot only relate to Ford's experience, the Yale graduate can also back up descriptions of the misogynistic culture at the elite university's DKE fraternity to which Brett Kavanaugh belonged to during his time at Yale. In the United States of America, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. "I'm innocent." When Amy Klobuchar asked if he had ever blacked out while drinking, he grinned, taunting her. That is simply un-American.
"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace". "Since my nomination in July, there's been a frenzy in the left, to come up with something - anything, to block my confirmation". When Ford said she arrived in Washington via an airplane and Mitchell reminded her that she was reportedly afraid to fly, Sen. Cory Booker, N.J., who called him "evil" - and accused them of unleashing the torrent of unfounded allegations. A close family friend, Laura Cox Kaplan, sat to the right of Kavanaugh's wife, looking visibly upset and rubbing Ashley Kavanaugh's arm when the nominee called her a "rock". "Millions of Americans listen carefully to you".
"Even if one thinks that Dr. Blasey's allegations are not credible, demonstrating them not to be would require further investigations and testimony", the editors added. She says that he and his friend Mark Judge would "target" a vulnerable girl, get her drunk, and then pull her into a side bedroom where they could have sex with her.
Ford gave a straightforward response when Sen.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC also mentioned the ABA's assessment during an impassioned defence of Judge Kavanaugh on Thursday. It is a tragedy for our democracy. Seriously? The world's greatest deliberative body has been reduced to this?
Blumenthal also hit out at Trump for failing to authorize an FBI investigation into Blasey Ford's allegations. If they wanted the bureau to review Ford's allegation, they should have come forward with that request more than a month ago.
After Thursday's debacle, it is hard to see how Brett Kavanaugh can ever serve as the somber, dignified ninth member of an institution that depends so heavily on earning and keeping the public's trust. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) asked Ford at the hearing.
"For the good of the country and the future credibility of the Supreme Court in a world that is finally learning to take reports of harassment, assault and abuse seriously, it is time to find a nominee whose confirmation will not repudiate that lesson", the editors wrote.
As for Kavanaugh, Cunningham said the nominee "was successful in conveying the emotions of a man who has convinced himself that he has done nothing wrong".
"This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election", Kavanaugh said. His accuser described him "grinding into me", covering her mouth when she tried to scream and fearing that he "was accidentally going to kill me". "My life is permanently and totally altered". Kavanaugh angrily said he was innocent and the victim of "grotesque and obvious character assassination".
