The 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats on the committee will decide whether to recommend Kavanaugh for approval by the entire Senate, which is expected to begin procedural votes Saturday.

In the editorial, it didn't say that it's beyond a doubt that Kavanaugh committed the assault Ford alleges. "Each appointment to our nation's highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote". She first used science to describe how she was certain that Kavanaugh was the boy who sexually assaulted her. Both told their stories to the Senate Judiciary Committee during a almost nine-hour-long hearing.

Flake will put his cards on the table during this morning's committee vote, and it will then be much more clear whether this toxic, partisan, and emotional confirmation process will end with Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, or with voters possibly going to the polls with an open Supreme Court seat on the line for a second election in a row. While, he said, it took courage for Ford to testify, there was no evidence to corroborate her allegations. If all Democrats oppose the nomination, just two GOP senators would sink Kavanaugh's confirmation if they were to oppose him as well.

"I want to watch, I want to see, "Mr Trump said at a news conference in NY on Wednesday, adding that he was "open to changing my mind". "You get confused, and you don't understand it", she said, according to the New Yorker magazine. She is running for re-election in a state that voted heavily for President Donald Trump.

"Those kinds of things, they seem to be incredibly persistent, more reliable than narrative memory", Emerson said. "This would include calling additional witnesses and assessing further allegations against Judge Kavanaugh from other women, to which Republicans on the committee have been unwilling to commit and which would be divisive in any case". "I believe it's because they are trying to hide something", Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat on the committee, told NBC's "Today" program on Friday. "I have never done this to her or to anyone".

Kavanaugh admitted a love for drinking beer, but he also pointed to what he says were his outstanding academic record and dedication to high school sports and church.

One of Judge Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, is due to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

But many Democrats stood firm and expressed their continued support for Dr Ford, including Senator Elizabeth Warren who later tweeted "We believe her". "There is no question that Judge Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court, and in a different political environment, he would be confirmed overwhelmingly". Yesterday, we heard compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh.
