Jeff Flake: senator says he will vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh

The judiciary committee could vote in several ways: recommending the full Senate approve the nomination, rejecting the nomination, or making no recommendation.

It said that the nomination itself has become a referendum on #MeToo - and that confirming Kavanaugh would send the wrong message. "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting", Trump tweeted.

"I think the Democrats are part of a search-and-destroy mission", Sanders said.

In calling for the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before any vote could happen, Carlson urged the Senate to "remain an institution that will reliably follow the law and not politics".

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., September 27, 2018.

At times, Kavanaugh's frustrations boiled over. Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh.

Judge Kavanaugh has yet to respond formally to this specific allegation.

Former President George W Bush has been advocating for Kavanaugh with wavering senators in recent days, according to a person familiar with Bush's outreach who was not authorized to speak publicly.

Democrats heaped praise on Ford and pointed to gaps in her memory as evidence that she has been truthful, with Illinois Senator Dick Durbin noting that a "polished liar" can create a "seamless story" while a survivor "cannot be expected" to remember every detail.

"To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics", he said.

As noted by CNN, the letter came after the ABA gave Kavanaugh a "well-qualified" rating for the Supreme Court.

"In addition to the ABA, Alan Dershowitz, who is Trump's favorite legal thinker, also just called for an FBI investigation, claiming that "right now there are too many unanswered questions" to bring this to a vote".

She told the committee she feared Kavanaugh would rape and accidentally kill her during the alleged assault.

How the proceedings were playing out on television was a key anxiety.

When asked by the press who had caught up with the confrontation if Flake had anything to say, he simply said: 'There have been a lot of questions here'.

But many felt the proceeding took a turn once Kavanaugh appeared.

In their new editorial, America's editors said they were still committed to finding a justice with Kavanaugh's textualist approach to jurisprudence that is suspicious of the kind of judicial innovation that led to the Roe decision. "So I believe once he gets to the Supreme Court, he will call the balls and strikes fairly", Conway said. And White House allies noted the importance of how Fox would cover the proceedings in shaping Trump's reactions.
