Brett Kavanaugh and Accuser Christine Ford testify before Senate panel

Trump declined to call the women who have made accusations against Kavanaugh liars, but said he empathizes with the judge given that multiple women came forward with allegations against him during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Kavanaugh will seek to rebut accusations from Dr. Christine Blasely Ford, who claims Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her at a high school party.

The president initially set his meeting with Rosenstein for Thursday, the same day that the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled a hearing on the allegations against Kavanaugh.

While Senate Republicans' views on the Kavanaugh confirmation are of higher outcome, Jones's embrace of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe is notable, given Republicans in the Senate, and the White House, have ignored Democrat's request for a probe into the allegations that have been levied against Kavanaugh in recent days. She also said Kavanaugh was present at a 1982 party at which she was raped.

Judge Kavanaugh is thought to have denied the allegations contained in the letter. "I hope you never have children because they'll be just as worthless as you are".

The optics of men challenging a woman who says she's been a victim of sexual assault are so bad that the committee has asked a female prosecutor from Arizona to help with the questioning.

Kavanaugh will deny all of the allegations but will tell the committee that he was "not perfect" in high school. "I spoke to somebody 38 years ago, and it may not be good, '" Trump said, adding, "The people that have complained to me about it the most about what's happening is women".

Christine Blasey Ford testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

He said in a statement Monday that he wanted to "refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity". In the session, Ford described an attack during her high school years, although she did not name Kavanaugh explicitly.

"Women are so angry, and I frankly think that, I think they like what the Republicans are doing", he said. I did not use my name, but I provided the names of Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.

"I've had a lot of false charges made against me", he said.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, came forward this week with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh, also from the 1980s.

'Judge Kavanaugh is being considered for a promotion.

In her written testimony, Ford describes the long path her accusations took from her private outreach earlier this year to her public appearance on Thursday, and her reluctance to appear before the committee.

"However this vote goes, I am confident in saying that it will forever be steeped in doubt". His colleague Brit Hume said that "the more hesitant, the more fragile she has seemed, the more credible and powerful she seems to the audience".

"I may call Rod tonight or tomorrow and ask for a little bit of a delay to the meeting, because I don't want to do anything that gets in the way of this very important Supreme Court pick", Trump said. She also has four people swearing she told them of the alleged assault. She claimed that he pinned her to a bed, groped her and tried to pull off her clothes, covering her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream.
