'Polar Opposite of the Brett I Know': Kavanaugh's Previous Girlfriends Defend Judge

"We want to go through a full process ... and hear everybody out", Mr Trump said.

With Mr Kavanaugh's once-safe nomination for a lifetime job on the top United States court now appearing in jeopardy, the conservative federal appeals court judge had meetings at the White House and issued a fresh denial calling the assault allegation "completely false".

On Sunday, Ford, a research psychologist at Palo Alto University in Northern California, went public with allegations that Kavanaugh had tried to rape her while at a high school party.

Republican Bob Corker also said delaying the vote "would be best for all involved".

Republican Senator Susan Collins, who has been targeted as a potential no vote on Kavanaugh's appointment, tweeted: "Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh should both testify under oath before the Judiciary Committee".

Republicans hold a slim 11-10 advantage on the Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh had been a relatively smooth confirmation track until the allegations against him were reported last week.

More than 2.5 million people have been evacuated in Guangdong and on Hainan island. The AP reports that the storm has killed at least 66 people in the Philippines.

"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday". Thus, he dropped hints that there might be an anti-Kavanaugh conspiracy going on here.

Graham spoke to Sean Hannity on Fox News on Monday night, questioning why Ford hired a lawyer and took a lie detector test in August if she originally intended on remaining anonymous with her sexual assault allegations. It is unclear with whom the Trump Supreme Court pick was meeting. Leimroth said that Ford told her about the alleged assault long before she came forward this year, and said that it's "preposterous" to imagine Ford would make it up.

Although the White House appeared to stand behind Kavanaugh, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said on Monday that sworn testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford on the specific allegation should be considered as part of the record in the judge's hearings.

"This has to be weighed against what we already know, which is that Judge Kavanaugh is a man of good character and integrity", Conway said, noting that he has already been vetted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, undergone days of questioning before the panel and has been praised by "women in every aspect of his life".

Ford's allegations come almost a year after the #MeToo movement was popularised following the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein, who has since been charged with rape and other sexual crimes.

The last-minute appearance of the sexual assault allegations echoed the tumultuous confirmation hearings of George Bush sr Supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991. "They can't beat him on the law so they are trying to destroy his life".

Hill endured a brutal assault on her personal reputation in hearings and in conservative media, and the all-male Republicans on the committee ultimately backed Thomas.
