Sequelae, norepinephrine, epinephrine: Christine Blasey Ford uses science to describe her assault

Kavanaugh confirmation vote scheduled for Friday

On his way to the committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination, Flake was confronted by a woman who said she was the victim of sexual assault.

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have both vehemently denied the allegations.

The editors in July praised Kavanaugh shortly after President Donald Trump nominated him to the high court. He also called the Democrats' tactics "the most unethical sham".

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC also mentioned the ABA's assessment during an impassioned defence of Judge Kavanaugh on Thursday. But Christine Blasey Ford's Senate hearing appears to be one of them.

Democrats have rallied strongly behind Ms Ford.

She also said they turned up the volume on music in the room so that she could not scream for help from the other partygoers downstairs. You can't say here in the beginning ... He choked up at several points when referring to how his family has been affected by the tempest surrounding allegations by Ford and other women. For a very long time, I was too afraid and ashamed to tell anyone these details.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., listens as Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

She says she was convinced Kavanaugh was going to rape her, and feared he might accidentally kill her when he covered her mouth to stifle her screams.

She said both agreed to keep the letter confidential, but it was leaked to media outlets on September 14.

Later, she told Senator Dick Durbin that her certainty was "100%".

During Thursday's hearing, senators have had the option to hand off their questioning to Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor with decades of experience prosecuting sex crimes.

"I am terrified", she said, her voice often quavering.

Despite having more Republicans on the committee, the outcome is uncertain because Sen.

Republican leaders were hoping to confirm him to the high court by early next week.

But Michael Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, has claimed that Judge and Kavanaugh did collaborate to inebriate young women for such sessions.

Republicans acknowledged that much was riding on Mr Kavanaugh's performance.

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".

Graham had a message for Republicans on the panel as well, saying, "To my Republican colleagues, if you vote "no", you're legitimizing the most despicable thing that I have seen in my time in politics".

Brett Kavanaugh: How quickly could he be confirmed to the Supreme Court? The sharply political tinge of his statement - railing against Democrats' tactics and accusing them of executing "revenge on behalf of the Clintons" - gave Trump confidence an eventual Justice Kavanaugh would rule in his favor. The hearing marked the first time Ford had spoken publicly about her accusation, which could derail the confirmation, redefine the "Me Too" era and affect the fight for control of Congress in the November 6 election.
