Kennedy: I believe Kavanaugh - will vote to confirm

Brett Kavanaugh

"I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate". The women in the video have since identified themselves as Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila.

Later, Flake told reporters, "I want to support Judge Kavanaugh".

MAK: You know, I asked him that exact question, and he said he couldn't pinpoint the precise reason why he made a decision to negotiate this compromise.

For instance, Judge Clarence Thomas, who was nominated by George H W Bush, has been a Supreme Court judge for almost 27 years and Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was nominated by the then president Bill Clinton, has served on the bench for over 25 years.

During his testimony, Kavanaugh repeatedly said Keyser, and two other people, had disputed Blasey's allegations.

Christine Blasey Ford waves as she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday

On Thursday, reports surfaced that two men have contacted the Senate Judiciary Committee this week to claim they, not Kavanaugh, were involved in the sexual "encounter" with Ford "that is the basis of her allegation". Judge said in the letter he doesn't know Swetnick and denied her allegations.

Flake said their "poignant" accounts came after he and other lawmakers saw an emotional and widespread response to Ford's testimony Thursday.

Moments later, the full committee voted on Kavanaugh's nomination, and it advanced, as expected, along party lines.

But I have to believe that there was a certain amount of cringing going on last night.

Round, of Vermont, said she feels the whole episode could end up hurting Democrats more than helping them in this fall's elections, just more than a month away. She looked down again.

The president's comments come after he blamed Maduro's socialist regime for Venezuela's economic crisis and mass poverty. They made a decision to apply tough sanctions on top officials in Maduro's government.

'Possibly something happened to her, ' Round said. "They may have been there prior to the allegations against him because of his position on some issues". "You see what's happening right now", Trump said.

The FBI has been asked to complete its investigation in a week, meaning the confirmation of Kavanaugh, 53, as Supreme Court judge would be delayed by at least a week.

A short time after the confrontation, Flake said he would not vote to confirm Kavanaugh without an FBI investigation into his past.

"This country's being ripped apart", said Flake.

Flake was later asked whether the elevator confrontation swayed him. "Out of respect for the integrity of the process, we will have no further comment at this time". Let's listen in to what he said.

Ford said Keyser was at the party when the assault happened but was downstairs and did not directly witness the incident. And I - I've heard from friends, close friends.

Following the confrontation, Mr Flake - after urgent consultations with colleagues - cast the vote only after asking the Republican-led panel to request that the Trump administration pursue an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe lasting up to seven days of the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh.

Flake told The Atlantic that he plans to vote in favor of Kavanaugh's confirmation, "unless they turn up something - and they might". Gallagher confirmed via phone to The Associated Press that it was her, and she consented to the use of her name. She said she doesn't know how she made it home, but was not driven. Her allegations first appeared in the New Yorker.

"It's about sinking Donald Trump and it's about politicizing the Supreme Court".

Archila told the AP she was sexually assaulted when she was 5 years old by a teenager when she and her family lived in Colombia.
