  • Trump defends Supreme Court pick but says he could change mind

A third woman came forward in a statement to a Senate panel made public on Wednesday accusing Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's US Supreme Court nominee, of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.

While Swetnick said she is aware of other witnesses who can attest to the truthfulness of her statements, she has not identified those witnesses.

After committee chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen.

On the eve of her testimony, an examination taken by Ford on August 7 was released, showing that she passed a polygraph test over the sexual assault allegations. "They respect what I've done", Trump said at the press conference.

Kavanaugh has denied both of these allegations.

If Democrats manage to defeat Kavanaugh's nomination, Americans on the right will not only be furious that Republicans caved, they will be inclined to believe that future allegations of sexual misconduct are nothing more than political weapons, and that conservatives seeking high office can not expect the presumption of innocence, due process, or anything close to a fair hearing.

Trump said he would watch Thursday's potentially explosive Senate hearing and that he could still change his mind about his nominee once he hears what Ford has to say.

The Judiciary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday.

"I do not know how I will assess the credibility of these witnesses - these human beings - on the grave matters that will be testified to, because I have not yet heard a word of their testimony", he said. "My responsibility is to tell the truth", she added, adding that she was "terrified" to testify but that she considered it her "civic duty" to relate the details of the incident.

Trump defends Supreme Court pick but says he could change mind

"This is not a criminal trial for which the involvement of an experienced sex crimes prosecutor would be appropriate", Bromwich said in the letter, as reported by Fox News, echoing previous requests that the senators themselves, not counsel, ask questions.

'So what you are telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity?' Feinstein asked. The Democratic Party has balked at Trump's nominee, and the controversy surrounding the assault allegations has only deepened the battle lines between the two parties.

According to all four, she either named Mr Kavanaugh as the assailant or described the attacker as a "federal judge".

Kavanaugh has said he categorically denies ever sexually assaulting anyone. The events Ford describes supposedly took place 36 years ago, yet she never mentioned them to anyone-not her parents, not her friends, not even her husband-until 2012, when it came up during a couple's therapy session. She said he was also verbally abusive and would make "crude, sexual comments" to girls in order to "demean, humiliate, and embarrass them". He says Kavanaugh should not be confirmed without a full investigation.

The declarations will be used by Ford's attorneys during a committee hearing on Thursday that could determine the fate of Kavanaugh's embattled nomination.

"I also witnessed Brett Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" on many occasions at these parties", Swetnick said. USA TODAY was not able to independently vet the claims.

The same day, The New Yorker published a bombshell account from a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, 53, who said Kavanaugh exposed himself and caused her to touch him without consent, during a drinking game at a Yale dorm party in the 1980s.

Throughout the morning, protesters were scattered across the Capitol, including supporters of both Kavanaugh and Ford.
