Senate Judiciary Committee reschedules vote on Brett Kavanaugh for Friday morning

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington for the third day of his confirmation hearing to replace retired Ju

"Leader McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a "smear job.' Let me repeat that, Leader McConnell owes an apology to Dr. Ford for labeling her allegations a 'smear job" and he should apologize to her immediately", Schumer, D-New York, said on the Senate floor.

Meanwhile, critics on the left have countered that, "It's not a trial - it's a job interview", as the Daily Kos put it.

When asked about the allegations on Fox, Kavanaugh said they are "totally false and outrageous" and went onto say he was a virgin in high school and for many years thereafter. Both Ford and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Graham said former President Bill Clinton had a litany of sexual allegations against him, but many Democrats turned a blind eye.

Meanwhile, McConnell continued to blame Democrats Tuesday morning for how they've handled the confirmation process and defended Kavanaugh against the allegations. Kavanaugh denies the allegation. During an interview on Fox News, where he was interviewed alongside his wife, Ashley, Kavanaugh categorically denied the accusations that were previously brought forth by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

Ramirez alleged in an article published by The New Yorker Sunday night that while she and Kavanaugh both attended Yale University in the early 1980s, he pulled down his trousers and exposed himself to her.

Protesters took to the streets in NY ahead of the United Nations summit to oppose the nomination of Mr Kavanaugh, with other demonstrations taking place across the country.

"It's a con game", Trump said.

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", Bromwich said. Dozens were arrested in Senate office buildings. About 200 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, chanting: "I believe Christine Ford."U.S. Capitol Police reported that 128 people were arrested on charges of unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings". 'We aren't announcing the name for her safety, ' Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley of Iowa told Politico.

Ramirez is the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

The best the Federal Bureau of Investigation would be able to do under these circumstances is take statements from everyone involved under theoretical legal jeopardy for any false claims, and then present them to the Senate Judiciary Committee. So far, no Republican senators have said they would vote against him.
