And they signed up, whether they anticipated it or not, for becoming a focus of scrutiny themselves.

Mr Kavanaugh issued a fresh denial of the claims in a statement released by the White House last Monday.

What are Trump and other Republicans saying?

"Brett wouldn't do that in a million years". I feel so badly for him. She said he pinned her on a bed, tried to undress her and clamped his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

"So it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?" "It would be the perception they are mistreating this woman, who might be a victim, unfairly", he said.

That's part of the plan by the slowdown crowd, whose objective is not to learn the truth, but to deny Judge Kavanaugh " s confirmation because they don't like his views of the Constitution and the law.

"There is a reason we call them skeletons in the closet - it's because they are skeletons in a closet, not skeletons on the porch".

In an alleged letter from King circulating on social media, the purported former classmate insisted that the sexual assault incident happened.

On Twitter, King added that she had removed her statement from Facebook because "it served its objective and I am now dealing with a slew of requests for interviews".

He did not comment directly on Ms Ford's claim that a drunken Kavanaugh and one of his friends trapped her in a room and attempted to pull her clothes off at a high school party in 1982.

Several said they interacted with him extensively through sporting events, dances, parties and other socializing or the phone calls that occupied teenage weeknights in the pre-texting era. It was unfair to Kavanaugh, unfair to his accuser and unfair to Feinstein's colleagues - Democrats and Republicans alike - on the SenateJudiciary Committee.

Trump indicated that his patience is wearing thin, even telling political website The Hill that the scandal resembles what he called "the witch hunt" by a special prosecutor into allegations his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to bring about his surprise 2016 election. The letter went on to reveal that Christine Blasey Ford has received multiple death threats in the past few days and has been forced to move her family out of her home.

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people I have ever known", Mr Trump told reporters from the Oval Office. He said he has never attacked any woman. Republicans, however, hold a 51-49 majority in the chamber and could still confirm Kavanaugh's appointment even if all Democrats were to oppose his nomination.

"The responsibility falls to us", Hatch tweeted.

The Judge said an investigation would take about two weeks, whereas the Hill investigation took about a week. The picture was stamped with the words "Judge Kavanaughs sexual assault letter found by Dems". "But the fact that I know her as a person of integrity and honesty, it doesn't surprise me that she came forward and that she has a personal sense of the importance of what she has to say".

"I will do it privately if she wants, but I'll do it reluctantly". Here's what we know so far about the allegations, and their possible ramifications.

"If it happened to her, that's awful", Clark said.

Blasey Ford's lawyers responded to the invitation to tell her story on Monday by requesting the FBI first investigate her allegations, and Democrats have similarly argued that the White House should ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen Kavanaugh's background file and provide investigatory muscle.

"There were kids who did act kind of insane".

She said she feared Kavanaugh might inadvertently kill her before she managed to flee. "She deserves to be treated with respect and fairness by the Senate".
