Flake Apologizes to Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford

BATON ROUGE LA- DECEMBER 10 U.S. Senate Republican candidate John Kennedy delivers a victory speech during an election party

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

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.

Protesters gather in front of the Supreme Court building holding signs with the image of Judge Brett Kavanaugh that read "Kava Nope" and "We Believe Christine Blasey Ford" on Capitol Hill in Washington, on September 24, 2018.

Kavanaugh, Ford said, put his hand over her mouth to silence her after she yelled, prompting her to fear for her life. Who wouldn't be scared to get up and have to talk about these incredibly private things in such an incredibly public way to strangers who have already, many of whom have already said her testimony doesn't really matter to them. "I know it's hard". "When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually". "Two friends having a really good time with one another", she said. "This is just completely made up, or at least not me", he told investigators.

She said the alleged assault has been seared into her memory and has haunted her. Ford testified first and will be followed by Kavanaugh.

New accuser says Kavanaugh was present at group sexual attacks
Four months worth of pages from the green and white 1982 calendar were released by the Senate Judiciary Committee . Kavanaugh has been the subject of multiple sexual misconduct allegations in recent weeks.

When asked whether he might be persuaded to withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination, Trump said: "If I thought he was guilty of something like this. yeah, sure". Ford will then leave the committee hearing room.

"I am here today not because I want to be", Ford said.

Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dorm party when both of them were in college, and Julie Swetnick alleges that she was a victim of a "gang" rape in 1982, in which Kavanaugh was present. Kavanaugh has denied all three allegations.

Republicans have criticised the way the claims emerged shortly before his confirmation hearing, claiming they are part of a Democrat plot to derail his nomination.

"I am with judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote", Trump told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters where he is attending the organization's annual General Assembly meetings.
