Kavanaugh's accuser offers four people to back accusation: Documents

Kava Nope

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seemed to back off such harsh language as he worked to coalesce his 51-senator majority behind Kavanaugh, a recognition that Kavanaugh's path to confirmation remained uncertain even as the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a vote to advance the nomination on Friday. "I've led a good life".

"We're looking for the truth here", he said. "I'm confident we're going to win", said McConnell.

On Sunday, a former Yale classmate said Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the 1980s.

Republicans have been determined to keep Kavanaugh's confirmation process on track in the face of the allegations.

"There is no reason to delay the hearing any further".

"If he's willing to talk to Fox News about his views, I don't know why he's unwilling to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation". Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) sat on the allegations for more than a month, then redacted part of the documentation - in such a way that, Gavin said, seemed created to help her cause politically. "It didn't happen, he said".

Ford, a university professor in California, has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when both were high school students in Maryland.

On Monday, women and their supporters from across the U.S. walked out of their offices, business and homes to support Ford and Ramirez, as well as all women who have shared stories of sexual assault.

"I was never at any such party" as the one described by Ford, he said in the Fox interview. "First Republicans demanded Dr. Blasey Ford testify immediately".

Trump called Kavanaugh "just a wonderful human being" and suggested that Democrats were skeptical of Ramirez, saying, "They don't believe it themselves". The issue, as always, really comes down to a few swing votes who could make or break the nomination: Republicans Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Jeff Flake; and Democrats such as Joe Manchin and Joe Donnelly.

"Labeling this a partisan smear job demeans not only the senators in my caucus", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said.

A call finally took place Tuesday evening, but only Democratic members of the committee were present, Clune said.

The article said Ms Ramirez acknowledges gaps in her memory caused by alcohol that night.

Senate Republicans chose Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor from Arizona, to conduct the questioning, according to the Wall Street Journal.

"During our meal, Christine was visibly upset, so I asked her what was going on", Gildo-Mazzon says. "But I think she's sincerely wrong".

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, rejected a request on Tuesday from Democrats to postpone the scheduled hearing.

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", the letter from Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, said.

At their regular Tuesday party lunch, Republicans were told to be prepared to be in Washington this weekend to process Kavanaugh's nomination, senators said. She also said she was uncertain of some details. "We want to hear the allegation".

All 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are men (as are six of the 10 Democrats).
