Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of pinning her down and trying to remove her clothing at a high school party 36 years ago.

Attorneys for Ford consequently sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and FBI General Counsel Dana Boente on Tuesday, which said that although Ford had pledged her cooperation wth the investigation after President Donald Trump authorized it on Friday, the organization has not responded to their inquiries and has not identified the agents responsible for conducting the inquiry.

Mr. McConnell said Republican senators aren't victims, but said the confrontations won't change votes. The three-decade-old accusation facing Brett Kavanaugh is not only false, they argue, but an example of the #MeToo movement gone too far in its call to believe the women - and not the men.

Republicans argue the Kavanaugh debate will drive enthusiasm among men and women.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark. They include notes from therapy sessions and video or audio recordings of a polygraph test she took. He has previously said he doesn't recall the events recounted by Ford.

She did not answer questions as to whether they would affect her vote for Kavanaugh before ducking into a committee hearing. She also said on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee that she was unsure if she actually ever showed these therapist's notes to The Washington Post or if she merely summarized what the notes allegedly said. Smyth and Leland Keyser.

He said that soon after the revelation of a letter by Ford asserting that Kavanaugh abused her at a high school gathering in Maryland, "The floodgates of mud and muck opened entirely on Brett Kavanaugh and his family". McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.

Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said in a media statement the judge was not truthful during his Senate testimony last week about his drinking and that Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" at Yale who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also blasted Trump for the comments saying he owes Ford an immediate apology.

At the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans accused Democrats of doing everything in their power to delay a confirmation vote.
