Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford to deliver conflicting testimonies

Some staffers working in the office of Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley have been on the receiving end of a series of nasty phone calls that’ve included insults such as “racist trash” and “a disgusting excuse for a human being

"I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school", she said.

A third woman has accused Kavanaugh of aggressive sexual behavior in the 1980s.

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday reacted to a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by calling it a "disaster for Republicans".

Kavanaugh says, "They're not accurate". "I am terrified", Blasey Ford said.

Both Kavanaugh and Ford spent hours testifying Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, with Ford going first.

Trump himself has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct. "They and their families have received vile threats", Grassley said.

At the same time, Trump said he was skeptical because he personally had been the target of "false charges" by various women.

Ford says also she started interviewing lawyers because the few other people she had told said she would need one.

Earlier this month, Ford accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed, then groping and trying to unclothe her in 1982, according to The Washington Post.

Committee staff spoke to a second man over the phone Wednesday who also said he believed he, not Kavanaugh, had the disputed encounter with Ford. Sometimes I had too many. "In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now".

Earlier in the day, she said she attended more than 10 house parties in the Washington area from 1981 to 1983 where Kavanaugh was present.

She added that over time she convinced herself that because she was not raped, she should just pretend the assault didn't happen.

Ford at one point explained how one of the most impressing memories from the night of her alleged assault was the laughter shared between Judge and Kavanaugh.

"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me".

"I am here today not because I want to be", she wrote.

Swetnick said in a sworn statement released Wednesday that Kavanaugh took part in efforts during high school to get girls intoxicated so that a group of boys could have sex with them, but she will not be appearing before the Senate committee Thursday.

She did not identify the individuals directly involved in those assaults.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone". "They called my bosses and coworkers and left me many messages.I made a decision to speak out publicly to a journalist who had originally responded to the tip I had sent to "The Washington Post" and who had gained my trust".

Reuters was not immediately able to verify her accusations. Representing her in the complaint was the firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer now representing Dr. Ford.

At a press conference in NY on Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump declined to comment on Swetnick's claims, saying he was a bit preoccupied at the United Nations to pay attention to the domestic scandals of the day, but dismissed her lawyer Michael Avenatti as a "lowlife". But the 85-year-old farmer is poorly equipped for the high drama of this event, which is being watched by tens of millions of people who see a highly sympathetic woman being treated strangely and insensitively by Republican senators.

Meanwhile, President Trump has acknowledged that the accusations of sexual misconduct swirling around his Supreme Court nominee have a personal side for him.

"Brett Kavanaugh", Ford responded by email, according to Koegler, her son's baseball team coach.

It comes as two other named individuals have levied allegations against Kavanaugh. They debase our public discourse.

Supreme Court appointments must be confirmed by the Senate.
