Meanwhile, President Trump dismissed the need for an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into her allegations.

Kavanaugh supporters have called Ford's credibility and motivations into question. Sen.

What is the case about?

He added that he not spoken to Mr Kavanaugh about Christine Blasey Ford's accusation that he assaulted her at a party in 1982 but said the allegations "should've been brought up long ago". She alleges that a heavily drunk Kavanaugh had forcefully pinned her to bed and tried to remove her clothing. A Democratic aide and another person familiar with the letter confirmed Friday to The Associated Press that the allegation is sexual in nature. "And Judge Kavanaugh should also testify to these 36-year-old allegations".

Earlier Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee moved to postpone the confirmation vote for Kavanaugh, which had been scheduled for Thursday.

"It's obviously bad to have to deal with but because her dedication to truth is more important than her personal difficulties, I think she can handle it", he said. "When you have squishy, mealy-mouthed Republican senators playing into their hands, it's hard to say what will happen".

In television interviews on Monday, Ford's Washington-based lawyer, Debra Katz, said her client would be willing to speak out publicly.

"I want to thank Dr. Ford. If she doesn't show up, that would be unfortunate", he said. Her family has relocated, they said. A full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.

How Trump reacted to the news?

Donald Trump Jr. responded crassly, sharing a meme about the letter likening it to a love note sent by a elementary schooler.

'I feel so badly for him that he's going through this be honest with you. "This is not a man that deserves this". The Post story describes her as a "Washington lawyer known for her work on sexual harassment cases".

He led the state Senate last fall when accusations of widespread misconduct rocked the Capitol.

Border Patrol Supervisor Arrested for Killing Four Sex Workers
Friday night, Ortiz picked up a woman named Erika Pena on a street in Laredo, and took her back to his house, NBC News reports . Ortiz told investigators they would find the body behind gravel pits located off Interstate 35, according to the affidavit .

The Free Beacon picked up some of her additional comments as she put on a sweeping media tour regarding the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The allegation has shaken up the battle over Kavanaugh's confirmation, and Republicans are calling for a public hearing with both accuser and accused testifying.

In a tweet Tuesday night, Trump wrote: "The Supreme Court is one of the main reasons I got elected President".

Republicans are suggesting that Ford will have one chance to testify, and one chance only. "The Republicans move in lockstep, so do the Democrats". He called the allegations a "drive-by attack" on the judge's character.

"There are gaps in her memory", Cornyn said. "I know in general she supports women's rights, and she often stands up for students, and she had expressed concerns to me about other students who might be struggling".

Mike Braun, a former IN state legislator running against Donnelly, also criticised the timing and praised Kavanaugh.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, also a Judiciary Committee member, said that if Ford wants to provide information to the committee, "I would gladly listen to what she has to say".

The development came after Senate Republicans and Democrats fought over who should give evidence at the high-stakes hearing six weeks before major congressional elections. "Monday is her opportunity", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday.

"That's the trick", Gutfeld said during a discussion of Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh's recollections of the party in question.

Ms Ford's lawyers said yesterday she would not appear before the Senate until after the FBI investigates the allegations.

"Compare that to the 22 witnesses at the 1991 Anita Hill hearing and it's impossible to take this process seriously", Feinstein said. "A proper investigation must be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all sides spoken to". Ford said she decided it was her "civic responsibility" to come forward, and now a new hearing will take place. Democrats are now favoured to take the House while becoming increasingly confident of adding the two Senate seats that would give them control of that chamber.
