    Fascinating following the transcript and it's playing out like a movie. Fascinating, but sad.

    Does appear this Dr. Ford was indeed sexually assaulted all those years ago, but could it be the mistaken identity that Kavanaugh's team is suggesting?

    No idea how this is going to end up. Ford was tearful in her testimony, and Kavanaugh, angry at his name being dragged through the mud.

    BBC News have live updates.

    The Senate have been questioning Kavanaugh on his college yearbook.

    Can't say I have ever heard of any of this kind of terminology. Could of course just be an American thing.

    Apparently the FFFFFF denotes 'find em, French em, finger em, f**k em, forget em' and 'boofing' is anal sex or inserting alcohol or drugs up your rectum.

    Guessing this is typical frat talk. Doesn't excuse it of course.

    People are getting fired for dodgy tweets from decades ago yet this guy is being fast tracked through to the supreme court, a lifetime appointment, before the, now multiple, allegations can be properly looked in to. Its unbelievable.

    Not really, but I notice all his supporters seem to have got religion real bad.

    Yep. Some tweets are rather dodgy too.

    Also noticed one tweet where someone was deriding the fact that this victim remembered everything about the actual incident, but not exactly where and when.

    I recall my cat being killed by a dog some 25 years ago. Remember it clear as a bell. Everything that happened in that incident. Couldn't tell you when exactly it was though, or what day, or even what time of year.

    You do remember the key parts and that's the whole point here.

    And a control tool of course.

    I guess this whole affair can teach men not to act and treat people awfully, boast about it and not expect it to come back and bite them big time later on in life.

    He is the only one of the nominees that is of the opinion that a sitting president shouldn't be charged with a criminal offence.

    Hey, that's a coincidence isn't it. Trump seems to favour him for some obscure reason.

    Otis tried it once and found it alright for kicks but now he’s found out that it’s a habit that sticks, he’s a boofing addict.


    Never heard of it either. What is it?

    I think it's where you get someone to blow coke up your arse, apparently that's where the lining is thinnest so it gets into your system easier.

    Weirdly I think I first heard of it because Lindsey Lohan or Kerry Katona or some of that ilk was up to it.

    His mate who wrote a book on their partying times is hiding out in a beach house at the moment. He called him 'Bart Kavanagh' in the book. If my mate was in trouble because of a story where I was supposed to be party to a sexual act, and I knew we were both innocent, I would not be hiding in a beach house and watching my mate being taken apart. Plus he behaved like an arsehole in the questioning. He started shouting at senators, asking if the questioner ( senator ) had drink problems and blaming democrats being upset about losing to Trump. Wouldn't like to be judged by him.

    Whatever your opinion on the validity of these claims surely the sensible thing to do would be to halt the process pending a proper investigation into his guilt. I'm sure if he's guilty Trump would be able to find another lawyer capable of following orders and if not he can enter the court without questions hanging over him. If he gets confirmed today then this will hang over him for his entire term - which is life on the US Supreme Court.

    Exactly. It should at least put things on hold at the moment pending further investigation.

    Wouldn't like to be in your house if that is calm and reasoned. He was asking the senators what they drink. Shouting at the senators. Now the people who were at Yale with him say that they knew him as a party guy ( piss head ) and grabbing the girls. E.g. Lynn Brooks said the way he portrayed himself was pure bullshit. The general opinion is that he lied about lots of little things and was very politically partisan. Where's Mark Judge?

    The republicans don't want that as it will be pushed to after the mid terms when they won't have a majority in the Senate. Lindsay Graham says the democrats would push the appointment back to after the 2020 election in the hope of them having the next president and filling the seat. That may happen if they have to find another candidate and start the process again. Whatever happens, Kavanaugh is not a neutral balanced person or judge. The American Bar Association has said there should be a further FBI investigation before confirmation. Kavanaugh, when asked whether he would be for a FBI investigation to clear his name, said he would do whatever the committee wants - knowing full well that they, and Trump, don't want the FBI to investigate. Strange answer if you are innocent. I think he has shown himself to be dishonest about several small things and lost his cool under questioning and attacked the questioners verbally asking them about their drinking habits. Ok, if he wasn't in a job inteview being interviewed by his future employers, but in this case, I wouldn't give him this job which is for life.

    yes, I was hoping that...... but I didn't know if perhaps you got shouted at at home and questioned about your drinking habits and thought that that was normal calm behaviour...;-)

    Did you like the 'drinking game' 'devils triangle' - in his diary? Or at least he said it was a drinking game...

    TOP DEFINITION
    Devils Triangle
    A threesome with 1 woman and 2 men. It is important to remember that straight men do not make eye contact while in the act. Doing so will question their sexuality.
    Larry: Did you hear that Eric and Brian were in a Devils Triangle with Sarah last night?
    Brad: Yeah man, I did, what homo's.
    Larry: No man, its cool, they didn't make eye contact.

    Can't speak for anyone else but if I was accused of sexual assault and was innocent I'd want to do everything I could to clear my name. As many people investigating it as possible so they can report back that its all made up rubbish. On the other hand if I was guilty and wanted to hide it ...

    When I was a lad, coke was something you put on the fire. If you stuffed that up your arse it probably wouldn't get you high, but it would certainly make your eyes water.

    I saw a story saying that the wiki entry was being edited during proceedings to reflect his statement it was a drinking game. America is f*cked.
