In another declaration, Rebecca White, a neighbor and friend of more than six years, said Ford revealed the alleged assault against her in 2017.

Flake added later, "And so I will say to these witnesses - these human beings - we owe both of you a honest apology. And she said she was totally inebriated, and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him, but it might have been him". "She told me she had been trapped in a room with two drunken guys, and that she had escaped, ran away and hid". "During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me". Feinstein or the lawyer helping you so that what it said could have been considered in August and during the week of September 4, when the committee hearing was held, including a senators-only session of the hearing'.

In response to Trump's comments, Ramirez's attorney John Clune told CNN that "politicians are going to say what they want to say but that doesn't mean what Debbie disclosed is not true". She claims Kavanaugh groped her and tried to rape her at a house party in the 1980s.

The woman also made other accusations in her statement.

Those elections could shift the balance of power in Congress as Democrats seek to regain control from conservatives.

Kavanaugh said he wouldn't "let false accusations" drive him out of the Supreme Court nomination process, but Kimmel says he has another gig in mind for the judge. Russell Wheeler, an expert on the judicial selection process at the Brookings Institution, said he was unaware of a similar media interview by a Supreme Court nominee in the past 100 years.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY retorted that if McConnell believed the allegations were a smear, "why don't you call for an FBI investigation?" So will his chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who said he sexually assaulted her in high school.

Kavanaugh and Ford will be testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday. The decision prompted an outcry from Democrats, whose 10 panel members include four women, given that senators typically do the questioning themselves.

Looking ahead to Thursday's hearing, Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said his staff has hired a female lawyer from outside the committee to lead the questioning, but he would not disclose her identity, citing her security.

A long-time friend, Keith Koegler, said that in 2016 Ford told her that as a high school student she was sexually assaulted by a boy who became a federal judge in Washington. "If Grassley waits long enough, the Democrats will come up with the woman claiming to be Kavanaugh's secret Russian wife - he's a bigamist, too, don't you know - and Trump paid Kavanaugh's second wife to hire a bunch of prostitutes to urinate on the bed Obama slept in while in Moscow".

Ashley Kavanaugh was asked whether she wondered if her husband was telling the truth about the allegations against him. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

The more evenly matched credibility contest between Ford and Kavanaugh as demonstrated in Wednesday's poll seems to be a cultural shift from 1991, when an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that far more people believed Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas (40 percent) than Anita Hill (24 percent).

He said he "did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter". They could have pushed it through two and a half weeks ago. which is frankly what I would have preferred.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump told reporters. A vote in the full Senate could happen as early as next Tuesday, senior Senate Republicans have said.
