United States judge Brett Kavanaugh faces fresh allegations

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Both boys were inebriated, she said.

"It's not to say that there can not be a situation where a person has risen above these kinds of behavior or teenage behavior", Hill told NPR, "but is to say that what we have is a person speaking the privilege of representing the laws of this country, and when that individual is reasonably believed to have broken those laws - and then not been truthful about it - to me, that's a disqualification".

The three-page declaration was sent to the counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is set to hear testimony from Kavanaugh and another woman, Christine Blasey Ford, as early as tomorrow.

"When I received Dr. Ford's letter on September 13, my staff and I recognized the seriousness of those allegations and immediately began our committee's investigation", Grassley said. It also issued a statement urging the United States senate to postpone the votes on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh up until the case launched by Dr. Ford was thoroughly investigated. "My responsibility is to tell the truth", she added, adding that she was "terrified" to testify but that she considered it her "civic duty" to relate the details of the incident.

Kavanaugh on Wednesday once again rejected the allegations as "last minute smears" that were "false and uncorroborated".

Time's Up started the statement by saying that the era when business continued normally despite sexual assault allegations was over forever.

Republicans have been hoping to win confirmation for Kavanaugh by early next week. "I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends. This is what traumatized me the most and had the most lasting impact on my life".

The release also outlines a number of others the committee has interviewed, including friends of Kavanaugh and those who know the women who have lodged accusations against him.

The second accuser, Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, told the New Yorker magazine that he exposed himself to her at a party when they were both first-year students.

She said that during those years, she became aware of efforts by Kavanaugh and Judge to spike the punch at parties to "target particular girls", and get them drunk so they could be "gang raped" in a side room.

It was also disclosed on Wednesday that Senate investigators were investigating a fourth allegation against Kavanaugh made anonymously.

For his part, Kavanaugh denies all of this categorically, as he has since the beginning.

The saga has hardened partisan battle lines in Washington and further raised the stakes for one of the most consequential posts in America.

Hill spoke with NPR's All Things Considered for a segment that aired Tuesday about her experience during the confirmation of then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

Trump chose Kavanaugh to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who retired effective in July.

In advance of Thursday's hearing, Trump emphatically defended Kavanaugh but signaled there was potential yet for to change his mind about his own nominee.

"If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yes, sure", Trump said at a press conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY.

Feinstein said says the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have investigated Ford's allegations. I am not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time.

The all-male panel of Republicans are expected to defer most of their questions to a female lawyer, Phoenix prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, an experienced sex crimes prosecutor.

President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans have cast Ford's allegation as part of a Democratic smear campaign meant to thwart Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women as well.
