Kavanaugh: I won't be intimidated into withdrawing nomination

Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh

But the new allegations that were reported Sunday have prompted a key senator to call for "an immediate postponement" of any further proceedings by the committee, which is considering Kavanaugh's nomination.

In a story published Sunday evening by The New Yorker, Deborah Ramirez says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken party while both were first year students at Yale University.

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen", he said. "I am with him all the way", Trump said after arriving in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly, calling the allegations against his nominee for a lifetime post on the top US court politically motivated.

In his statement Sunday, Kavanaugh said he is looking forward "to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building-against these last-minute allegations".

A White House spokeswoman says the administration stands by the nominee, labelling the allegation "the latest in a co-ordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear a good man down".

The judge has denied both allegations, labelling the latest "a smear".

The White House remained firmly behind Kavanaugh Monday and planned an aggressive defense, said a White House official not authorized to speak publicly, who stressed the lack of corroborating evidence. "This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanaugh".

The letter says Ford "accepts" the committee's request that in the coming week she would "provide her first-hand knowledge of Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct".

"While I am frightened, please know, my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided answers to all of your questions", Professor Ford wrote. "It should be fully investigated", judiciary committee member Sen. "If they are true, then Judge Kavanaugh must not be confirmed". And just seven weeks from an election in which Democrats are hoping to capture control of the House and maybe the Senate, her emergence has also drawn intensified attention to the #MeToo movement's focus on sexual abuse.

The New Yorker said it contacted Ramirez after learning of a possible involvement in an incident with Kavanaugh.

As he builds a case for his innocence, Kavanaugh plans to turn over to the committee calendars from the summer of 1982.

But it was increasingly hard to see how the Ford testimony could affect the resolve of McConnell to ensure that Kavanaugh gets his up-or-down vote on the Senate floor, after accusing Democrats of "aiding and abetting" what he's described as a takedown of the current federal appellate judge.

"We were told no decision has been made on this important issue, even though various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions", the attorneys for Ford said in a statement. "We're not going to let her determine how many people we call" and on outside counsel. Senate Republicans should stand up to these unsubstantiated and discredited allegations and move forward with a vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Kelly claimed in her recent book that former Fox News chief Roger Ailes had sexually harassed her and other women, and famously confronted Donald Trump at the first Republican presidential debate in 2015 over his alleged treatment of women.
