Bringing in Mitchell is "a transparently clumsy attempt to avoid the visual of a panel of all-male Republican Judiciary Committee members grilling a survivor about her sexual assault allegations", said Michael Polenberg, vice president of government affairs for Safe Horizons, a victims' advocacy organization in NY.

"On numerous occasions at these parties, I witnessed Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh drink excessively with girls and engage in highly inappropriate conduct, including being overly aggressive with girls and not taking "No" for an answer". A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, said Kavanaugh "thrust his penis in her face and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away" when he was a freshman at Yale University. Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking committee Democrat Sen.

Avenatti declined to expand on the allegation in an interview Wednesday on ABC's "The View", saying he would not add detail beyond what was in the statement.

The allegations, dating back to the 1980s, have put in jeopardy Kavanaugh's chances of winning confirmation to the top USA court in a Senate narrowly controlled by Trump's party, with high-stakes congressional elections just weeks away.

"The Republicans could not be nicer, could not be more respectful to the process, certainly could not be more respectful to the woman". Asked about her possible testimony, Trump on Tuesday said she "had nothing". MacCallum asked him how long he was a virgin in college, after he volunteered that he never had sex in high school.

In April, a jury found Cosby guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, one of 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assaults dating back decades.

Trump has acknowledged payments to women ahead of the election but denies their underlying allegations about sexual relationships. It's the same as saying, 'I couldn't have robbed that bank, I'm a virgin.'" Meyers also suggested that "if you're trying to distance yourself from sexual assault, maybe Fox News isn't the place to hang out. He said he went to church on Sundays and worked on service projects.

Ford's emailed response: "Brett Kavanaugh".

In a statement, the judge said he did not know the accuser, Julie Swetnick, and her allegations "never happened". Kavanaugh has denied being at the party. In the letter, Ford said she faced death threats and was relying on her lawyers and Grassley to "agree to conditions that will allow me to testify in a fair setting".

He said he was not present at a party like the one described by Ford and noted that others Ford said were at the gathering had no recollection of it.

Two affidavits, from Ford's husband Russell Ford and from the coach of their son's baseball team, say Ford named Kavanaugh as the alleged assailant. About 200 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, chanting: "I believe Christine Ford."U.S. Capitol Police reported that 128 people were arrested on charges of unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings".

[Bringing in Mitchell] is a transparently clumsy attempt to avoid the visual of a panel of all-male Republican Judiciary Committee members grilling a survivor about her sexual assault allegations.

Clune says that Republicans did not participate in a pre-arranged Tuesday night conference call to talk about Ramirez' allegations.

Democrats appeared to be unified in their opposition to Kavanaugh while Republicans maintain a narrow 51-49 majority.

"Christine expressed anger at Mr. Turner's lenient sentence, stating that she was particularly bothered by it because she was assaulted in high school by a man who was now a federal judge in Washington, D.C.", Koegler said.

Kavanaugh also told MacCallum that he would not withdraw his name from consideration over the allegations.

The GOP power play could see the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination as soon as Friday, procedural votes at the weekend and a final Senate decision by early next week, assuming there are no more complications.

"I know he's going to stand by me", Kavanaugh said. She told a therapist.

Wilkinson said: "They announced that there were notes and that there had been a lie detector test" but that those materials were not turned over "even though they were requested".

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

Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

Key Republicans said they thought the hearing scheduled for Thursday should go forward.
