Ford says she thinks Kavanaugh tried to rape her

"In Room 226 in the Dirksen Senate Office building, Kavanaugh will effectively stand trial after three women came forward with accusations about his conduct as a teenager in the alcohol-fueled youth party culture of the early 1980s".

Ford, who first made her allegations known in a letter to members of the Judiciary Committee, provided a detailed account of the alleged assault during her opening statement.

"She wants the American public to know the truth about Brett Kavanaugh", said Avenatti. "They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult".

But he lavished praise on his Supreme Court nominee.

Another woman in a story published Sunday by The New Yorker also has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct from their time at Yale University.

Avenatti revealed his client's identity and released a sworn affidavit, sent to the Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday. Sen. "The letter was shared with both Republican staff and Democrat staff", the statement said.

He lashed out over the time it took the committee to convene the hearing after Ford's allegations emerged, singling out the Democrats for "unleashing" forces against him.

The committee has said it is investigating all claims made in the Kavanaugh saga, attempting to "make sure no stone was left unturned".

According to her attorneys, Ford gave answers "not indicative of deception" and wound up passing the test with "unremarkable" scores. The judge has vehemently denied her allegation. "And no, I've never done anything like that". The record of my life, from my days in grade school through the present day, shows that I have always promoted the equality and dignity of women.

"I am here today not because I want to", she will tell United States lawmakers, according to prepared testimony that she will deliver at the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The allegations against Kavanaugh have cast a cultural spotlight on his nomination in light of the "Me Too" movement.

"Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been, for many years, one of the most respected people in Washington", Trump said, in response to being asked if he believed the women accusing Kavanaugh were liars.

Trump has actually been accused of harassment or assault by at least 19 women, with allegations ranging from unwanted kissing to rape.

Wednesday's ad expresses support for survivors of sexual assault against the backdrop of high-profile accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh vigorously denied the new charges, calling them "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Swetnick said she attended more than 10 parties along with Kavanaugh while growing up in suburban Maryland.

However, CNN reported that Collins had met earlier in the evening with Republican leaders and expressed serious concerns about Swetnick's allegations and questioned why the Senate Judiciary Committee had not subpoenaed Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's friend. "I don't know where they found these people".

The Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation for Friday.
