But even if Kavanaugh doesn't get confirmed to the nation's top court, he will remain a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, an incredibly powerful body that's just a step below the Supreme Court.

But if the allegations are serious enough that they tank Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation, there will be pressure to remove him from his current position as well.

"If and when they regain power, Democrats need to resume the full investigation into Kavanaugh's lying and alleged sexual abuse that Republicans have so far refused to conduct", he said.

Ford's attorneys say that several requests they have made of the committee have been refused, such as calling additional witnesses who Ford remembers being at the party, and having the FBI investigate her story.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, wrangled with Ford's lawyers for the past week over the exact terms of her appearance.

"These are smears, pure and simple".

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and-never mentioned it, all of a sudden it happens-in my opinion, it's totally political".

When the New Yorker first contacted Ramirez, she said she could not say if it was Kavanaugh who exposed himself.

Kavanaugh has denied both accusations.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary panel's highest-ranking Democrat, said after the latest allegation that the confirmation process should be put on hold until the claims are fully vetted.

Lawyers for Ford said in a statement on Sunday that she has committed to testifying in an open hearing on Thursday about her allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name-and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building-against these last-minute allegations".

The committee will not vote on his nomination until after Thursday's hearing. Ramirez asked that the FBI investigate her story saying, "At least look at it. But she can come and tell that story".

This follows an allegation from Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in 1982, when the two were teenagers.

Debbie Ramirez (above), a resident of Colorado, has come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations and said he wants to testify before the committee.

Kavanaugh now has to wrestle with the question of how capable he is in serving as a judge with these allegations, true or not, over his head.

According to the article, "Ramirez acknowledged that there are significant gaps in her memories of the evening, and that, if she ever presents her story to the F.B.I. or members of the Senate, she will inevitably be pressed on her motivation for coming forward after so many years, and questioned about her memory, given her drinking at the party".

Beyond his ascension into the highest court in the United States, questions have come up about Kavanaugh's current employment.
