"I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes (a sedative) or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said.

As with the allegations by two previous accusers, the latest incidents are alleged to have occurred decades ago. She said no. Asked how certain she was Justice Kavanaugh had assaulted her, she said "100 per cent".

They include Senator Jeff Flake, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee that begins its hearing at 10 a.m. (1400 GMT) on Thursday.

Republicans, under pressure from conservatives to confirm Kavanaugh, are forging ahead with plans for a full Senate vote as early as Tuesday.

The outcome of this hearing is likely to determine whether Kavanaugh's promotion to the highest court in America is successful. After Ford finishes, Kavanaugh will be given a chance to testify.

There are scattered hints of GOP hesitancy.

The late controversy in Kavanaugh's nomination process has unfolded just weeks ahead of the November 6 midterm elections, in which Democrats are seeking to take control of Congress.

Feinstein said: "So what you are telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity". "Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her", said Avenatti.

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone", he said in a statement. "I am an independent person", she said.

And he told Senate Judiciary Committee investigators that he is "looking forward" to the hearing on Thursday, according to a transcript of a call released by the committee.

The release also outlines a number of others the committee has interviewed, including friends of Kavanaugh and those who know the women who have lodged accusations against him. Ford told senators that one night in the summer of 1982, a drunken Kavanaugh forced her down on a bed, groped her and tried to take off her clothes.

She praised Sen. Feinstein's decision to initially keep her allegations - which she sent to Feinstein in a letter after discussing them with her congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo - confidential at Blasey Ford's request.

He said that in high school he drank beer with his friends and "sometimes I had too many".

"It was created to scare me", he said.

Ford, a 51-year-old psychology professor, looked down and took a breath. Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, denies assaulting Ford.

The May through August pages mention several parties at various houses and also a beach week, highlighted in all caps, the week after Kavanaugh's exams.

Since Ford first went public with sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, two other women have come forward with allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

Ford attorneys sent the Judiciary Committee a report on an August 8 lie-detector test she took on her allegations that states her answers were "not indicative of deception". The Associated Press has not been able to corroborate them, and continues to investigate.

The second man, the committee said, spoke to staff members by phone on Wednesday.

"Republican senators have delayed this for weeks now", Mr Trump said. Representing her in the complaint was the firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer now representing Dr. Ford.

President Trump said on Wednesday that he would be willing to withdraw Kavanaugh's nomination if he believed these allegations were true, but called them "false".
