According to a document Avenatti posted on Twitter, the woman alleges she witnessed Kavanaugh "consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s".

Trump, who himself faced allegations of sexual misconduct during the 2016 presidential campaign, again accused Democrats of "a con game" and praised how Republicans have handled Ford's allegation. But the Democrats - who have called for the FBI to reopen its background check investigation of Kavanaugh - made their objections to the process clear and subsequently refused to ask the judge questions, the person said.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m.

"I think we'll all be here all weekend", said Sen. "I would be very concerned about doing that, but it wouldn't surprise me if she would agree to do that", Clune said. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, says he assaulted her years ago at a suburban Maryland high school party.

The front of Kavanaugh's 1982 calendar is filled with doodles of stars.

Kavanaugh's interview aired on Monday, a day after a former Yale University classmate claimed he sexually assaulted her at a party 35 years ago. He ended up attending that Ivy League School. "And the truth is that I have never sexually assaulted anyone - not in high school, not in college, not ever".

At least four Republican senators, including two women who have been outspoken against sexual abuse, have withheld judgment, acknowledging the potential validity of Blasey Ford's allegation despite the amount of time that has passed and the paucity of hard evidence.

At the end of his speech, Flake said that he hoped "that we in this body will acknowledge that we don't have all the answers, we are imperfect humans, we will make imperfect decisions".

Some analysts say there is also a risk that China could allow its currency to weaken again to cushion the blow to its exporters. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer that the new tariffs could result in higher consumer prices at its stores.


Kavanaugh denied her allegation as he has the others. He's denied those allegations.

"It's a very risky game for our country", Trump said Tuesday, adding that a Deborah Ramirez, a second woman who came forward with a complaint about Kavanaugh while he was at Yale University, had "nothing" and saying she was "messed up" and "drunk" at the time of the alleged incident. But one said he had no recollection of the incident. Ramirez accused Kavanaugh in an article published on Sunday in the New Yorker magazine of exposing himself to her at a drunken dormitory party during the 1983-84 academic year at Yale University.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said, "Leader McConnell should rethink what he said in the heat of the moment and apologize to Dr. Ford".

During the Fox interview, Kavanaugh said that while there were high school parties with beer and he wasn't ideal, "I'm a good person".

The accusations from Ford and Ramirez roiled the Supreme Court nomination process at the 11th hour, energizing sexual assault victims and the broader #MeToo movement, threatening Kavanaugh's career and reputation and risking the court's standing as it prepares for Monday's start of the 2018 term.

About 200 people gathered in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, chanting: "I believe Christine Ford."U.S. Capitol Police reported that 128 people were arrested on charges of unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings". Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. In the other two, Ford did not name Kavanaugh but said she was assaulted by a federal judge.
