Mitch McConnell Says Republicans Will 'Plow Right Through' Nominating Brett Kavanaugh

Ford Willing to Testify With Restrictions Next Thursday

How it looks: Optics key in fight over Kavanaugh hearing

President Donald Trump has challenged the woman who has accused his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, demanding she provide evidence.

An anti-Zionist student group at The New School in NY appeared to justify the recent killing of an Israeli-American man by a.

Christine Blasey Ford's offer to testify before the Senate next week - if she and Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans can agree to terms - sets up a potential showdown that could imperil what had been the nearly certain confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Ford has also called for an FBI investigation into her claims, but President Donald Trump has not supported this move, saying "that's not what they do" at the bureau. What the Democrats are doing is all grandstanding.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation and said he would testify to that under oath.

Ford supporters protest outside the office of Senator Chuck Grassley on Thursday, saying he's treating her unfairly.

Gabon's Aubameyang strikes twice as Arsenal win Europa League tie (4-2)
Emery acknowledged that Aubameyang's double could be a vital confidence booster for the striker after he only netted one Premier League goal in five games so far.

The psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California said she was being treated for what she said had been the long-term effects of the incident.

Senior Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas told CNN: "If she doesn't want to participate and tell her story, there's no reason for us to delay". You're embarrassed and ashamed and you don't think people will believe you.

It could also threaten Mr Kavanaugh's support with several Republicans - including Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Jeff Flake of Arizona - who have not declared their stances on his nomination.

Kavanaugh has denied the accusation he sexually assaulted Ford while drunk at a party in his high school years and said he would be willing to appear before the committee to refute it.

As Flake criticized him Wednesday, Trump Jr. took to Twitter to attack Democrats for not pushing for an investigation of the abuse allegations against Keith Ellison, the Democratic nominee for Minnesota attorney general.

Will the latest scandal in Washington sway voters? Although they are employing a more gentle touch, Republican members of the Committee are doing to Dr Ford what they did to Anita Hill, 27 years ago, when they refused to allow three independent witnesses to testify in support of Hill's version of events. "We've all made clear this is her chance". "We want people who are constitutional and will govern in good faith ..." Numerous women, regardless of their politics, expressed personal empathy for Ford as she steps into a national firestorm.

Patriots add Corey Coleman to the practice squad
However, they recently chose to part ways with him, and the Patriots traded a fifth-round pick to acquire him. In fact, she believes Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will help keep him in check.

Debra Katz, Ford's lawyer, relayed the response to top staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, requesting to set up a call with them to "discuss the conditions under which [Ford] would be prepared to testify next week". "She needs to have the FBI investigate". The political flashpoint is playing out only weeks before midterm elections in which conservative voters will be critical to the GOP drive to maintain control of Congress. Many Republicans said they were frustrated with the timing and saw it as a Democratic attempt to obstruct one of the president's nominees to the nation's highest court, which could energize them in November.

Ford says that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to forcibly remove her clothes during a house party in Bethesda, Md., in the early 1980s.

"This last year and a half has been the best year and a half in my time in the Senate", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. "We're just going to keep going ahead".

McConnell's words seem to state the "job" of Senate Republicans is to get another conservative judge on the Supreme Court.

McConnell was met with a standing ovation. Don't get rattled by all of this. But he also called for Ford's voice to be heard: "With all of that, I feel that the Republicans-and I can speak for myself-we should go through a process, because there shouldn't be even a little doubt".

Liverpool enjoying best start in 57 years after PSG win
But substitute Firmino came off the bench to swing the pendulum back in Liverpool's favour with a stunning goal in added time. I would say that one, two, three years ago probably everyone would have thought that is a mountain we can not climb.
