Then, Ford came forward as the anonymous accuser and published a piece about how Kavanaugh supposedly sexually harassed her. September 4-7: The Senate Judiciary Committee holds contentious hearings on Kavanaugh in which the nominee was lauded by Republicans and faced with regular interruptions from protesters.

Senators are expected to vote on Kavanaugh this Thursday, but an open investigation could stall the vote - certainly past the first Monday in October when the Supreme Court is due to meet, and perhaps even until after November's midterm elections, when Democrats hope to retake a majority in the House and Senate.

People take part in a protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, in front of the New York County Supreme Court at Foley Square in New York City, Aug. 26, 2018. "He emphatically denied that the allegations were true".

Kavanaugh forcefully denied the allegation and stated his willingness to cooperate with the Senate Judiciary Committee to defend himself.

"She should be heard", Conway said on "Fox and Friends". Murkowski said Ford's story "must be taken seriously". Neither senator faces re-election this fall. "Around the same time", the Post said, Ford contacted her member of Congress, California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo.
