The first accuser Christine Ford has also agreed to testify publicly. But other senators already in the "yes" column could change their minds.
"I like beer", he said, but he also said he'd never passed out and never attacked Ford. "He was absolutely furious", this person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to candidly share the president's frustrations.
The senator then said: "This is not a job interview".
In his remarks, Kavanaugh again fully denies all accusations of sexual misconduct raised against him. "I'm asking you to address this new defense of mistaken identity directly".
The mood was intense as Kavanaugh's voice filled the room for the extraordinary session, unlike Ford's quiet testimony. Which Kavanaugh did emphatically, calling today's hearing and the two weeks leading up to it "a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election", and "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".
"I believed he was going to rape me", she will say, according to her prepared testimony. He did not say whether he wanted his friend to testify. Manchin was among a handful of Democrats from red and purple states that Kavanaugh supporters were targeting as possible votes. "One hundred percent", he said. "I'm known to have a weak stomach and always have". The White House said he even watched a feed on Air Force One as he flew back from NY at the start of the Senate action. Liberals began arguing that Kavanaugh should even step down from the appeals court where he now serves.

For an audience of one in the Oval Office, Kavanaugh's fate seemed to become more secure as the day went on. "Others in the GOP should take notice!"
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham angrily blasted the Democrats' handling of Supreme Court nomineeBrett Kavanaugh's confirmation process as "the most unethical sham since I've been in politics".
Graham's tirade was well-received inside the West Wing. The hearing was a rollercoaster of emotion, with Democrats taking every opportunity to praise Ford's courage in coming forward, while Mitchell delivered the tougher questioning, challenging her on a number of issues, including the circumstances surrounding her polygraph test and her fear of flying.
But he became visibly evasive when Democratic lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked him two pointed questions: would Kavanaugh be in favor of Judge testifying before the committee, and would he ask the White House to order the FBI to investigate the claims against him? Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. "I bet you Judge Kavanaugh will say 'I'm a hundred percent sure I didn't do it, '" he explained.
He tweeted a photo of himself aboard the plane, saying he meant to "bring the truth" about Venezuela to the U.N. He made a point of saying he was accompanied by his wife, Cilia Flores, who was sanctioned Tuesday by the U.S.
