Brett Kavanaugh: Second woman accuses US Supreme Court nominee of sexual misconduct

"Does this sound like Democratic Senators take their responsibility seriously and want to get to the truth?"

"We are now in a place where it's not about whether or not Judge Kavanaugh is qualified", Murkowski told the New York Times on Monday "It is about whether or not a woman who has been a victim at some point in her life is to be believed".

"I go into the hearings with very positive feelings about him, and I hope Thursday goes well", Sen.

Ford's legal team on Monday had objected to the possibility Republicans would use an outside lawyer to question her.

Ms Blasey Ford, a university professor in California, accused Judge Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when they were both high school students in Maryland.

The committee also scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Friday at 9:30 a.m.

"This shameful, shameful smear campaign has hit a new low..." And she said she was totally inebriated and she was all messed up, and she doesn't know it was him.

Cornyn said that Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh will be questioned separately by a female Judiciary Committee staff attorney, and that Republican members will be free to question her as well.

Kavanaugh accuser Ford agrees to testify...

Democrats called for the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it is unnecessary. Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of IL told CNN. Joe Manchin, another one of those critical votes, trod carefully when speaking with reporters on Tuesday. "They're playing actually much better than the Republicans".

"The woman or women who desire to be heard need to be heard and he needs to have a chance to clear his name". But given the thinness of the evidence, I'm frankly surprised the New Yorker ran the article, which went online Sunday. She said that although she is frightened, "my fear will not hold me back from testifying and you will be provided with answers to all of your questions".

A handful of senators in both parties remain undecided on Kavanaugh's nomination.

Like a number of Republicans, Tennessee Sen. About 63 percent of sexual assaults in the United States are not reported to the police.

The New Yorker said the allegation came to the attention of Democratic senators through a civil rights lawyer. This is really kinda getting carried away.

Democrats say that is all the more reason to halt the nomination process and let the FBI, which carries out background investigations for candidates to high positions, investigate them. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said should be treated "the same way my daughters would be treated in the event they were making an accusation, or my mother or my wife". "As soon as the hearing is over, I plan to make known what I'm going to do but again, I go into it with positive feelings about him".
