Jeff Flake of Arizona, a Judiciary Committee member who has clashed bitterly with Trump and is retiring from the Senate.

Kavanaugh was seen Monday morning arriving at the White House, which has stood by the judge in the face of the accusations. Leah Vukmir, supported Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court. "She should testify under oath and she should do it on Capitol Hill".

"It's not clear what the Republicans are saying", Katz said ina separate interviewon ABC's "Good Morning America" with George Stephanopoulos. Quoting Justice Thomas from his nomination hearing, Mr. Feehery said this seems like another "high-tech lynching", this time "of a white Irish Catholic guy".

Democrats have been bitterly opposed to Trump's choice of Kavanaugh for the nation's highest court.

"I don't know enough about Dr Ford and her allegations yet" to reach a conclusion, Collins said.

The Washington Post reported on Monday that two women who dated Judge Brett Kavanaugh - one in high school, the other in college - have now gone on record defending his character and how he treats women.

Mr. Judge has said the incident never happened.

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump said of the confirmation process.

"This is a completely false allegation", Kavanaugh said in a statement.

"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday", he said.

Ford claims that Kavanaugh forced himself on her at a high school party in the 1980s, pinning her to a bed and attempting to undress her.

According to multiple sources, Kavanaugh also has hired Beth Wilkinson, of the law firm Wilkinson Walsh and Eskovitz, to be his attorney. His spokesperson Taylor Foy did not immediately return a request for comment Monday on whether Thursday's vote will take place.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Monday that Ford "deserves to be heard", but he complained that Democrats failed to share information about the allegations when Ford sent a letter to the committee's top Democrat, Sen.

Banks said Ford was not motivated by politics, but ultimately chose to provide her account "so that those making a very important decision can make an informed decision with all the facts".

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, refused to say how she'd vote but tweeted earlier Monday that both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify to the Judiciary Committee under oath.

The other male accused in Ford's allegation told the New Yorker, "I have no recollection of that". Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced she was in possession of the letter but would not release the name of the accuser due to privacy concerns. But Democrats say that staff calls ― normally routine for most Supreme Court nominees ― aren't the appropriate way to handle the matter. "There are lots of questions that can be asked about details - and I think the hearing will be very helpful".

Ford came forward publicly on Sunday in an interview with the Washington Post.

Republicans fiercely criticized Feinstein for not coming forward with the allegation sooner and charged Democrats with arranging for Ford to level her charges at a time for maximum impact. She took a lie detector test, which she passed, and provided her therapists' notes about the attack.

Feinstein is facing backlash for bringing the letter into play so close to the confirmation vote, and in the words of Fox News' Tammy Bruce, using it as a "political hatchet".

With the #MeToo movement galvanizing liberal and female voters and already costing prominent men their jobs in government, journalism and entertainment, a hearing would offer a fuller vetting of Ford's charges but also present a politically jarring prelude to November's midterm elections.
