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 attended a private school for boys in Maryland, while Ford attended a nearby school. But Democrats say staff calls are insufficient and want the proceedings postponed so the FBI can investigate.

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

President Donald Trump's eldest son has appeared to mock Dr Ford's sexual assault allegation.

"If it takes a little delay it'll take a little delay", Mr. Trump said - though he added it "shouldn't be much delay".

No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas commended Grassley for seeking a procedure that "respects confidentiality".

Among the GOP defectors was Sen.

Stalling tactic or not, Senators Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) have both called for the vote to be postponed until the allegations are investigated fully.

Last week, a CNN poll conducted by SSRS was released showing a split in those who want the Senate to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court - with 38% who said yes vote in favor and 39% who said no, don't vote in favor. Both women said that they had never seen Kavanaugh get out-of-control drunk.

"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.

Some Democrats raised questions about whether Grassley's plan was sufficient.

The White House is standing behind Kavanaugh as the allegation threatens his nomination. She said Kavanaugh and his friend shut her in a room and turned up the music to hide her protests.

A record number of women, majority Democrats, will be on the nation's ballots in the November 6 congressional elections. Richard Blumenthal of CT, said staging the hearing without the FBI investigation would make it a "sham". Susan Collins, R-Maine, tweeted Monday that Kavanaugh and Ford "should both testify under oath before the Judiciary Committee".

Hatch also said there's "some question" whether Ford is "mixed up" and confusing Kavanaugh with someone else.

While now totally unverified and, to those unacquainted with the work of world-renown memory expert Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, seemingly far-fetched, this theory about therapy's possible role in memory manipulation is actually quite plausible.

Underscoring the raw political divisions prompted by the Kavanaugh fight, Feinstein said she'd only learned of the hearing on Twitter.

"In light of recent allegations, it is more important than ever for the Senate to have a full picture of Judge Kavanaugh's views, credibility, and character", Leahy said. And in an unusually personal swipe, Schumer said McConnell was showing "unmitigated gall" to oppose delaying Kavanaugh's nomination after refusing for most of 2016 to consider President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the court after Antonin Scalia died.
