Dabney Friedrich refutes mother's anonymous accusations against Kavanaugh sent to Senate

As the Senate Judiciary Committee hears testimony from Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh about allegations of sexual assault, AP journalists around the country are talking to Americans about politics, gender, culture and the Supreme Court.

"If you expect me to believe that Brett Kavanaugh was a serial rapist when he was sophomore, junior in high school, and he stopped and never did it again, you expect me to believe that any reasonable person would go to 10 parties where people were drugged and raped and not tell anybody it, I don't believe it".

"The last thing I want to do is take away from the pain a woman has", Jacobs said.

Speaking on Wednesday with Shannon Bream on "Fox News @ Night", Hanafin said that when he administered the polygraph exam, it consisted of just two questions: "Is any part of your statement false?" and "Did you make up any part of your statement?"

The psychology professor said a drunken Mr Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing at a gathering of teenagers in Maryland when he was 17 years old and she was 15. Judge Kavanaugh answered almost 1,300 written questions submitted to senators after the hearing, more than all prior Supreme Court nominees. She witnessed both of them "drink excessively and "engage in highly inappropriate conduct".

In the transcript released Wednesday, Kavanaugh denied an allegation that he assaulted a woman he was dating in 1998 while working for independent counsel Ken Starr that investigators said stemmed from an anonymous complaint sent to Colorado GOP Sen. "I believed he was going to rape me". Republicans have also refused to subpoena Mark Judge, who Ford says was with Kavanaugh when the alleged assault took place. "These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh". He will testify under oath later today.

"Her clinical language - I think she uses the word hippocampus about six times, that actually made her more, not less credible to me", said Jacob Bennett, a third-year law student, referring to Ford's physiological descriptions of how the brain forms memories. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) pressing Kavanaugh about why he hasn't welcomed an FBI investigation into the three sexual misconduct allegations against the judge.

Ford was only questioned by Democrats, while Republicans on the committee left the probing up to Mitchell.

Ford testified that she and her family were forced to move out of their home as a slew of death threats came her way and reporters staked out her home.

How Kavanaugh could impact Supreme Court: Kavanaugh is a staunch conservative, and his confirmation would cement conservative control of the Supreme Court - furthering Trump's efforts to shift the federal judiciary to the right. "And no, I've never done anything like that". He claimed Ford's claims could have been investigated differently, but indicated Democrats put her at a disadvantage. She said in her statement that there are two witnesses who can attest to her account, but she has not identified them publicly.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders showed support for Graham's comments on Twitter, writing: "Lindsey Graham has more decency and courage than every Democrat member of the committee combined".

Kavanaugh was responding to questions from Democratic Sen.
