The latest accusations against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh — brought by Resistance TV lawyer Michael Avenatti, representing a D.C. resident named Julie Swetnick — have caused Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee to push even harder to derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Follow updates from Breitbart News on the latest developments in the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. All times eastern.
• Christine Blasey Ford releases polygraph report from her legal team. Details differ from other times she has recounted the story, and it is revealed that it was administered in Maryland — even though she recently delayed testifying before the Senate, citing difficulty with flying across the country from her home in California.
• Michael Avenatti has declined to make his client Julie Swetnick available for media contact. The NYTimes says it is thus unable to corrobate her story.
• Judge Kavanaugh has testified under oath to Senate investigators in response to Swetnick’s allegations.
• GOP senators Cotton and Graham declare Swetnick’s allegations “not credible,” echo Kavanaugh’s “Twilight Zone” characterization.
• President Trump disses Avenatti on Twitter… and apparently gets under his skin.
• Jeff Flake trashes Trump for being “uninformed and uncaring” in response to Kavanaugh’s accusers — still says he has an open mind and will hear out both parties.
• Avenatti tells CNN’s Tapper: He doesn’t know if he first heard Swetnick’s story before44 or after Ford came forward
• Trump lambastes Democrats in press conference for holding back allegations after confirmation hearings: ‘They know it’s a big, fat con job’
• NBC runs with “4th accuser” story… an anonymous letter claiming someone’s daughter saw Kavanaugh molest another woman in 1998
• Senate Judiciary Committee releases transcript of testimony from Kavanaugh on new(er) accusations… took place day before Swetnick came forward

11:44 PM — Beyond parody. WashPost “annotates” Kavanaugh’s yearbook with nuggets such as: “It’s not clear who Timmy is, but it’s important to note here that Timmy is clearly some friend of Kavanaugh’s at whose house parties occur.”
