"We are now in a place where it's not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified", Murkowski told The Times in an interview Monday night.

More Americans believe Brett Kavanaugh's accuser rather than him in regards to the sexual assault allegations, according to a new poll.

"I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity, and I know I'm telling the truth", the judge said.

And Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, of NY, jabbed GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in unusually personal terms, saying he owed Ford an apology for labeling her allegations as a "smear job".

On that day, Koegler said Ford revealed to him in an email that the person who had assaulted her in high school was President Donald Trump's "favorite for SCOTUS".

On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee shared Judge Kavanaugh's prepared testimony ahead of Thursday's hearing over Prof Ford's allegation.

Interestingly, Apple has also reduced battery capacity this time with the iPhone XS, but hasn't compromised on the performance. They planned to bring the phones back to Chile and hand them out to family members and friends perhaps hoping for a discount.

Hanging in the balance is Trump's chance to swing the high court more firmly to the right for a generation.

"We are finding it hard to reconcile your letter and [staff member Mike Davis'] note with the Majority Leader's speech this afternoon on the Senate floor", wrote Bromwich.

Ms. Blasey Ford, who claims Judge Kavanaugh assaulted her during a party while they were both in high school, can not remember the exact date but believes it was during the summer of 1982. Ford alleges he witnessed the alleged assault. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled from the house. He says she named the attacker as Kavanaugh.

It's rare for nominees to the Supreme Court to give any interviews at all. "I stopped to speak with her, and she told me she had read a recent social media post I had written about my own experience with sexual assault".

He charged the allegations that he assaulted women more than three decades ago were part of an unfounded "last minute character assassination" aimed at forcing him to withdraw.

She said Ford arrived "visibly upset".

It can also be bought on FNB credit cards starting from R689 per month for iPhone Xs 64GB , and R755 for the iPhone Xs Max . Likewise, a 256GB XS is now 9,560 yuan while the 512GB model is 11,150 yuan, down 5.3% and 6.3% respectively.

The woman also made other accusations in her statement. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth. "I remember her saying that her assailant was now a federal judge". Mitchell comes from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office in Phoenix, where she is the chief of the Special Victims Division, which covers sex crimes and family violence.

Attorney Michael Avenatti provided a statement from his client to the committee.

In Kavanaugh's prepared testimony, he notes that Ford "accused me of committing a serious wrong" and he denies the allegation "immediately, unequivocally, and categorically". He has denied both accusations.

Taking the political lead in the high-stakes battle over the future of the court, Trump rejected a claim by Deborah Ramirez that Kavanaugh was the person who dropped his trousers and thrust his penis in her face at an alcohol-fueled Yale University dorm party about 35 years ago.

There was no immediate response by the committee to the AP's request for comment. Yet he appeared shaky at times. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell predicted Kavanaugh will be confirmed, saying, "I'm confident we're going to win". Both Ford and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump told reporters at the United Nations. "She admits that she was drunk. She admits time lapses". Certainly not to me. They know what they're doing. The subject came up again, he said.

Treatment of Ford, 51, on Thursday will be watched closely. The panel's Democratic senators, four women and six men, were expected to question Ford and Kavanaugh but those details were still not final, Senator Dick Durbin said.
