  • In TV interview, Kavanaugh denies sexual allegations; Dems ramp up resistance - VIDEO

Kavanaugh, who was named by Trump to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired in July, has denied the allegations. Kavanaugh rejected the latest claim Wednesday as "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

"She said she's not the one to answer if it's time for the FBI to investigate these allegations", Borger said of Murkowski.

If his nomination clears the panel, it must win confirmation from the full Senate, which Republicans narrowly control 51-49. When asked if Kavanaugh's confirmation process in the Senate should be delayed or halted to investigate the new allegations, Graham responded, "absolutely not".

Mr Kavanaugh's accounts of his behaviour in high school and college have faced intense scrutiny, with some of his former classmates coming forward to challenge his claims.

"He admits that he drank and did some things that he looks back on and says are embarrassing and make you cringe".

Four months worth of pages from the green and white 1982 calendar were released by the Senate Judiciary Committee. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh... "I don't know who this is and this never happened", he said in a statement.

Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, is also expected to testify.

The moment offered a stark glimpse at the gap between Trump and other world leaders who have criticised the President's approach to foreign relations on issues including trade, climate change and nuclear proliferation.

According to the poll, the majority of Americans would oppose Kavanaugh's nomination if Ford's allegations proved to be true. I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes.

They agreed to set the hearing for 10 a.m. on Thursday.

Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired.

Human Rights Watch is urging the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to halt the vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, scheduled for Friday morning.

Michael Bromwich, an attorney for Ford, is meanwhile not happy about the way the process is unfolding.

The White House had no immediate comment.

Ramirez's lawyer, John Clune, said in television interviews on NBC and CBS on Wednesday that she has not been invited to speak to senators.

Kavanaugh denies the misconduct allegation and told Fox News he wasn't at the party where his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, said the incident took place.

"I never met them", he said. She also did not specifically accuse Kavanaugh or Judge of raping her, or physically assaulting her in any way, in her declaration.

"If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yeah, sure".

"It does impact my opinions because I've had a lot of false charges made against me", he said.

She added, "I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s".

The affidavit said she has clearances to work with multiple federal agencies, including the Treasury Department.

After Ford came forward, two other women followed with their own allegations.
