Trump Battles Acosta Over Question About 'Always Siding With the Accused'

Lindsey Graham's depressing and disappointing admission about Thursday's Brett Kavanaugh hearing

White House 'Open' To Hearing From Second Kavanaugh Accuser

You think that, for some demented, vengeful or partisan reason, Ford has, on her own or in league with Democratic operatives, concocted a damning tale created to block Kavanaugh's appointment to a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. "We have committed to hearing from her and that's what we'll be doing tomorrow".

It was an extraordinary appearance for a nominee to the nation's highest court, one no such nominee had done before. He accused Republicans of continually changing conditions of how Ramirez could tell her story. So will his chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who said he sexually assaulted her in high school.

Four months worth of pages from the green and white 1982 calendar were released by the Senate Judiciary Committee. "It's possible they will be convincing". I am not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time.

He made the comments at a news conference in NY a day before Judge Brett Kavanaugh was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee amid multiple accusations of sexual misconduct.

Trump said that if lawmakers had moved faster, "you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred".

Europe leads Laver Cup despite shock defeat for star duo
Three points per match are up for grabs on the final day, with the first team to 13 points lifting the Laver Cup 2018 trophy. Novak Djokovic hit a great backhand victor on Sunday against Kevin Anderson at the Laver Cup .

Beth Wilkinson said Wednesday on CBS "This Morning" that the results of Christine Blasey Ford's polygraph test and her therapist's notes are not among the materials turned over to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the eve of her testimony. Some Republicans, including Trump, have dismissed the allegations as part of a Democratic smear campaign created to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti sent the allegations made by his client, Julie Swetnick, to the Senate Judiciary Committee conducting Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing and demanded an FBI investigation into the claims.

"I think her record stands for itself: Her schooling, her jobs and so on", he said.

"If our Republican colleagues proceed without an investigation, it would be a travesty for the honour of the Supreme Court and our country", Schumer said in a statement.

She revealed that a constituent who wished to remain anonymous had written a letter to a member of the House of Representatives, who had turned the letter over to Mrs. Feinstein.

Mourinho skips press conference, insists 'no fallout' between him and Pogba
He has indicated privately he will not look to force a transfer in January but will reassess his options at the end of the season. He told Sky Sports: "The only truth is that I made the decision of Pogba not to be the second captain anymore".

United States president Donald Trump has denounced Democratic efforts to block Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation as a cynical "con job" and launched a dismissive attack on a second woman accusing the nominee of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.

Not only has Kavanaugh been repeatedly and credibly accused of sexual assault, the president who appointed him has freely admitted committing it himself. In a sworn statement prepared by Avenatti and submitted to committee, Swetnick said that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was drugged and "gang raped". Avenatti had teased the allegations for several days, but Kavanaugh has denied being involved "in any such thing". "I don't know if Chrissy's parents are afraid of being disbelieved or are afraid of being attacked verbally". It's happened to me many times.

Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate and can't afford more than one defection to ensure confirmation without Democratic support. I guarantee you they laugh like hell at what they pulled off on you and the public. "But I've had a lot of false charges made against me, really false charges", Trump said.

Republicans have rejected any further delays in the confirmation process, scheduling a judiciary committee vote for Friday, which will be followed by consideration by the full Senate.
