While Judge Brett Kavanaugh has publicly expressed an eagerness to testify on Christine Blasey Ford's decades-old accusations, the Supreme Court Justice-nominee has grown "incredibly frustrated" over stories on his family, his private life, drinking habits and sexual proclivities, The Washington Post reported.

Judge Kavanaugh's frustration has not reached the level of dropping out, according to two Post sources, but more than a dozen White House aides prepped him for his onslaught sought to find his breaking point against deeply personal questions during a two-hour sessions last week. Kavanaugh is slated to testify on the Ford accusations Thursday.

"I'm not going to answer that," Kavanaugh said at one point, according to the Post, citing a senior White House official, who said the questions were designed to go over the line, while making sure his tone did not.

Kavanaugh was accused of pinning Ford to a bed, groping her over her clothes, and placing his hand over her mouth to stifle her screams when he was 17 and she was 15 back in the 1980s. The revelation was initially reported in a July 30 letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calf., and Rep. Anna G. Eshoo, D-Calif., but an unredacted version of that letter has been withheld from Republicans, according to the report.

"This is just bizarre," a senior Senate GOP official told the Post. "They want her to publicly testify . . . but the infamous letter is still not public. They won't allow it to be."

Kavanaugh's composure will impact more than just his nomination. He holds the fate of the Republican congressional majority – and therefore, too, the White House – in his testimony.

"The Republicans need women voters, but all hell will break loose (or it will be chaos) if this nomination unravels," Arizona-based GOP donor Dan Eberhart emailed the Post. "If we can't get the nomination done, why vote Republican?"
