Kellyanne Conway: Christine Blasey Ford "absolutely was wronged" but not by Kavanaugh

28 September, 2018, 16:08 | Author: Kara Nash
  • The Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday said Christine Blasey Ford's testimony on Brett Kavanaugh was

"If you lived a good life, people will recognise it like the American Bar Association has - the gold standard", he said.

"I am terrified", she said, her voice often quavering.

Kavanaugh was "certainly forceful until it comes to the Federal Bureau of Investigation asking questions or Mark Judge testifying", Cramer said. Kavanaugh vowed that "I have never done this ever, done this to her or anyone else".

The reversal is significant given Kavanaugh has repeatedly cited his Catholic faith and Jesuit education in defending himself against Ford's accusations.

One after the other, Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh sat in the same chair before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, separated by less than an hour but a reality gulf so wide their conflicting accounts of what happened when they were teenagers can not be reconciled.

Mitchell's approach was gentle but direct - yet inside the room, her methodical questions couldn't help but have the feeling of a cross-examination, exactly the atmosphere that Ford's attorneys wanted to avoid.

Democrats heaped praise on Ford and pointed to gaps in her memory as evidence that she has been truthful, with Illinois Senator Dick Durbin noting that a "polished liar" can create a "seamless story" while a survivor "cannot be expected" to remember every detail. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., said, is "as much a victim" as Kavanaugh.

Later, when Mitchell said, "Is that an objection, counsel?" in response to a comment from one of Ford's attorneys, Sen.

The committee could vote in several ways, recommending that the full Senate approve the nomination or that the Senate reject it, or making no recommendation at all.


Asked what concretely her protest and that of hundreds of others in support of Ford and against Kavanaugh's confirmation on this historic Thursday in Washington should achieve, Paterson called for an FBI investigation into the allegations against the nominee and a delay of what she views as a rushed through a process that she said was a sham.

In a sworn statement, Swetnick said she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s".

"This is a circus, the consequences will extend long past my nomination", he said.

Among the television viewers on Thursday was Trump, who has mocked the credibility of Kavanaugh's accusers.

Republicans are pushing to seat Kavanaugh before the November midterms, when Senate control could fall to the Democrats and a replacement Trump nominee could have even greater difficulty. He has denied all of the accusations, but it remained unclear how the dramatic testimony by Ford and Kavanaugh would affect his prospects.

Ford said, more than once, that she was not sure who covered the cost. "I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me". One by one, each GOP senator would make it clear which story he believed - just as all the Democrats gave no doubt as to which story they believed.

The statement did not indicate which way Flake was leaning. He says they did not include the party.

"But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy", he continued.
