Republicans can confirm Kavanaugh along party lines, but to do so, they can only afford to lose one vote.

Republicans appointed Arizona sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Ford, and she led off the questioning of Kavanaugh.

"I think that would be a big mistake", Wallace added.

Ford said she was "willing" but also hoping that the committee or a representative "would come to me, but then I realized that was an unrealistic request".

At a fundraiser at his hotel Wednesday, Trump said Kavanaugh "knocked it out of the park" and called the hearing "painful" to watch. He has denied all the allegations.

Kavanaugh ditched his prepared remarks and instead issued a blistering statement declaring the confirmation process "a national disgrace". He interrupted senators and dismissed some questions with a flippant "whatever".

"But you have replaced advice and consent with search and destroy", he continued. The full Senate could vote as early as Monday. "The Senate must vote!"

Kavanaugh's future now appears to lie in the decisions of a handful of key Republican senators - three of whom met after Thursday hearing and before Grassley's announcement.

Her stunning claims are made on the eve of scheduled testimony before a Senate Committee by Kavanaugh and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

"He began running his hands over my body and grinding into me", she said.

His colleague Bret Baier said that hearing Ford's testimony was "a totally different thing" than reading about her allegation.


Mitchell seemed to elicit criticism from all quarters with her questioning, with some saying she was too harsh and was on the Republicans' side while others suggested she was too soft on Ford.

"I don't want to be in a position where people say, "No, thanks".

Sean Hannity said other senators unsure of their decision at this point include Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.). Nearly immediately he choked up. Voice rising to a yell, he said, "My family and my name have been permanently and totally destroyed", citing his decades of service in his community and in high levels of American government. "@LindseyGrahamSC has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined", wrote White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote Thursday afternoon on Twitter.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation against me by Dr Ford".

Speaking to Kavanaugh, Graham said, "Are you aware that at 9:23 on the night of July the 9th, the day you were nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump, Senator Schumer said, 23 minutes after your nomination, 'I'll oppose Judge Kavanaugh's nomination with everything I have". "That's a lot of wisdom from a 10-year-old", he said choking up. "We mean no ill will".

The judge repeatedly refused to answer senators' questions about the hard-party atmosphere that has been described from his peer group at Georgetown Prep and Yale, treating them dismissively.

The allegations against Mr Kavanaugh by Blasey Ford, a psychology professor in California, have threatened to derail Mr Trump's bid to tilt the nation's highest court to the right for years to come. "I liked beer. I still like beer". "I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford. She's as much of a victim as you are, ' he noted. After a break in the proceedings, he came back and apologized to Klobuchar.

DKE, the fraternity, was considered a "rapey frat", she said.

Behind him in the audience as he testified, his wife, Ashley, sat looking stricken.

Christine Blasey Ford is sworn in before testifying the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Dirksen Senate Office Building at the Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., September 27, 2018.

"This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics, and if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy".
