The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Thursday for Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who last week accused him of sexual assault in 1982. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh tried removing her clothes during a party when they were in high school.

FAGEN: She has a therapist who has notes that do not - are not consistent with what Dr. Ford has said.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, 53, has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by two women, with the allegations dating back to his student days, with a third accuser reportedly ready to go public this week.

Kavanaugh said Monday, "I never did any such thing".

"Gee, let's not make him a Supreme Court judge".

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called on McConnell to apologise to Ford "for labelling her allegations a 'smear job, '" adding, "I challenge you, Leader McConnell, if you are so convinced this is a smear campaign, you'll have no problem with an FBI investigation to prove your case". Ford's attorneys have said their client wants senators to ask the questions.

"I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh", she said in a statement. "It's a shame", Trump said.

Kavanaugh and his first accuser Christine Blasey Ford are set to testify about the allegations before a Senate panel on Thursday morning.

"I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there", she said. "They're playing a con game".

Today, the President has also opened up for his second accuser, Ms Ramirez, to do so, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said today.

In a show of confidence, Republicans said they were discussing keeping the Senate in session this weekend so that they can begin the process of confirming Kavanaugh right away.
