U.S. judge Brett Kavanaugh faces fresh allegations

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh leaves his home on Wednesday in Chevy Chase Md

Dianne Feinstein, the panel's top Democrat, in the midst of her opening statement at Thursday's hearing on Christine Blasey Ford's allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a sign of the partisan tension that has surrounded the hearing.

Eleven days ago, Dr. Ford publicly accused me of committing a serious wrong more than 36 years ago when we were both in high school.

"The last thing I want to do is take away from the pain a woman has", Jacobs said.

"Take it from the commander in chief himself, who said of a day steeped in political, legal and judicial consequences: 'I think it's going to be a very, very, important day in the history of our country, ' President Donald Trump said in NY on Wednesday evening".

Shortly before, Ford had told the same senators that she was "100 percent" certain a drunken young Kavanaugh was the one who had pinned her to a bed, tried to remove her clothes and clapped a hand over her mouth as she tried to yell for help. She witnessed both of them "drink excessively and "engage in highly inappropriate conduct".

She said in a sworn statement released Wednesday that she holds "active clearances" -which require background investigations - for her work at the Treasury Department, the U.S. Mint and the Internal Revenue Service. "I'm still on the fence about, do I believe that this was absolutely this person".

Another former Trump official said that Ford's testimony means that Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court is now in deep trouble - and they doubted that he could save it during his testimony.

Two affidavits, from Ford's husband Russell Ford and from the coach of their son's baseball team, say Ford named Kavanaugh as the alleged assailant.

Protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. He will testify under oath later today.

A third woman, Julie Swetnick, told the Senate committee that Mr Kavauaugh was present in 1982 when she was gang-raped, though she does not say he was one of the rapists.

Kavanaugh strongly denied the latest allegations against him.

Facing criticism from some Democratic senators for including Mitchell in the hearing, Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, told Sen.

Ms Mitchell opened her questioning by sympathising with Dr Ford.

"You may defeat me in the final vote, but you'll never get me to quit, never".

Even when the questions that Mitchell parlayed to her from the Republican senators were convoluted, condescending, or ridiculous, she expressed at most a kind of accommodating confusion - never irritation, exhaustion, or impatience. And I just wanted to let you know, I'm very sorry.

"I remember being hooked up to a machine, being placed on my body and being asked a lot of questions, and crying a lot", Ford said.

On the topic of why she has chosen to come forward, she will say in her statement, which can be read here. Democrats are likely to grill Kavanaugh on all of their allegations and the corroborations from some of their friends and classmates, as well as his drinking habits in high school and college.

During his time fielding questions, Kavanaugh revealed himself to be a bitter, bullying, temper tantrum-pitching sack of entitlement-truly the flawless Supreme Court nominee to reflect the Trump doctrine. Committee member Jeff Flake is among these.
