What did we learn from the Kavanaugh and Ford Supreme Court hearings?

The magazine also warned Republicans on the committee against voting for Kavanaugh without investigating all of the women's claims.

"We make this request because of the ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law, " the ABA letter to committee leadership said.

The ABA went on to say that any appointment to the Supreme Court is "simply too important to rush to a vote".

There were two distinct juries whose opinions of Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who testified that he sexually assaulted her, matter: the millions of Americans who followed the proceedings and will vote in a bit more than a month, and more immediately the small handful of senators who remain undecided about whether or not they'll vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

"For the good of the country and the future credibility of the Supreme Court in a world that is finally learning to take reports of harassment, assault and abuse seriously, it is time to find a nominee whose confirmation will not repudiate that lesson", they write. While, he said, it took courage for Ford to testify, there was no evidence to corroborate her allegations.

Trump missed hardly a moment of the proceedings, relying on DVRs to keep up on the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday first from his private office on Air Force One as he travelled from NY to Washington, and then back at the White House, using DVRs to fill in the gaps.

Ford said her motivation to come forward with her story was entirely unrelated to politics.

"You may defeat me in the final vote, but you'll never get me to quit, never", he said.

The reversal is significant given Kavanaugh has repeatedly cited his Catholic faith and Jesuit education in defending himself against Ford's accusations. She is running for re-election in a state that voted heavily for President Donald Trump. "So I believe once he gets to the Supreme Court, he will call the balls and strikes fairly", Conway said.

There was no collusion. "In honor of you", he told the reporter, he'd be making the call. Trump predicted the controversy would scare away future nominees.

The mood was intense as Kavanaugh's voice filled the room for the extraordinary session, unlike Ford's quiet testimony.

Graham rocked the hearing room when he asked Kavanaugh whether he knew when he met with Sen.

Ford, now 51, has said of Kavanaugh, "I believed he was going to rape me".

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

He cried as he spoke of how the ordeal has wrecked his family. The psychology professor said she was 100% sure that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school. He said he welcomes whatever investigation the committee wants into the incident but would not directly answer whether he would seek an FBI inquiry.

Like other Republicans, Flake did not speak or ask questions during Ford's testimony, instead ceding his time to outside prosecutor Rachel Mitchell. It remains true that none of the people Ford named, man or woman, has confirmed that the gathering in question took place at all, much less that any assault occurred.

A few hours later in the same seat, a livid Brett M. Kavanaugh unleashed a visceral anger that seemed to have been pent up for the two weeks that the Supreme Court nominee faced mounting allegations of sexual misconduct from Ford and two other women. "I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, which heard from Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, was expected to vote soon on his nomination, possibly as early as Friday.
