Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Ford hearing comes with high drama

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg participates in a lecture Sept. 26 2018 at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington DC

Senate Judiciary Committee staff asked Kavanaugh on Tuesday about an anonymous claim, sent to Senator Cory Gardner (R-Colorado) alleging he "physically assaulted a woman he socialized with in the Washington, D.C., area in 1998 while he was inebriated".

"It's possible I'll hear that and I'll say, 'Hey, I'll change my mind, '" Trump said.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have also accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.

USA president Donald Trump has acknowledged that past accusations of sexual misconduct against him have influenced the way he views similar allegations against other men, including his Supreme Court nominee. Kavanaugh's confirmation could solidify a conservative majority on the court for a generation.

'Is Brett Kavanaugh who we want in the most prestigious court in the country. She described gang rapes she said occurred in which boys would line up to rape incapacitated girls. When they do get to their questions, they're often aimed on letting Blasey Ford stress how deeply the alleged assault has been ingrained in her memory. "I don't know who this is and this never happened", he said. Democrats have meanwhile said Kavanaugh should withdraw his nomination and called for an FBI investigation into the allegations.

A third woman has come forward with new allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of inappropriate behavior while he was in high school. Chuck Grassley, the top Republican on the committee.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly and vehemently denied the allegations.

"I feel for her because I know how terrifying this is and how nervous she's been and how it has impacted her life".

"I am innocent of this charge", Kavanaugh says.

Senate Judiciary chairman: No delay to Kavanaugh hearing despite new allegations
As of right now, there really isn't much else to say about these harrowing allegations made by Swetnick under penalty of perjury. She said in her statement that there are two witnesses who can attest to her account, but she has not identified them publicly.

Christine Blasey Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that she made a decision to go public with her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after a reporter appeared in a classroom where she was teaching.

On his message for young men, Mr Trump said: "It's a very risky period in our country, and it's being perpetrated by some very evil people".

Ford and Kavanaugh will appear separately before the 21-member Senate panel, comprised of 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats.

Two other women have come forward with allegations.

Swetnick is represented by lawyer Michael Avenatti, who also represents adult film star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against Trump to void a nondisclosure agreement under which the president's former personal lawyer paid her $130,000 not to discuss her alleged relationship with Trump years ago.

Republicans have cast doubt on Ford's account and dismissed the allegations against Kavanaugh as part of a "smear campaign" orchestrated by Democrats to obstruct his nomination.

The committee also released a two-page prepared statement from Kavanaugh for Thursday's hearing in which he "categorically and unequivocably" denies Ford's allegation.

But after more allegations emerged, some Republican senators have admitted that much is riding on his performance.
