Justice Kavanaugh is the second judge to be nominated by Trump on the nine-member US Supreme Court.

"Given the multiple serious allegations against him, Kavanaugh can no longer credibly serve on the nation's highest court", the statement reads.

"I'm a good person", Kavanaugh added. "In my opinion, it's totally political".

According to The New York Times, the federal judge has calendars from the summer of 1982 he plans to share with senators showing he was out of town most of that time with no indication of the party that Ford mentioned.

Wait. Yet another anonymous person directly contradicts Ramirez's story, has no corroborating information, but is allowed to express her opinion that Ramirez is "credible"?

The authors of the article, Ronan Farrow and Jane Meyer, say that after interviewing more than 36 people The New Yorker couldn't find anyone who would confirm the accuser's allegation.

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway told CBS on Monday that the accusations against Kavanaugh sound like "a vast left-wing conspiracy", using rhetoric that echoed Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs.

Brett Kavanaugh speaks to Fox News, Sept. 24, 2018. "We believe Deborah Ramirez", the event's organisers said on its Facebook page.

Schumer says "he should apologize to her immediately".

Blasey Ford is scheduled to testify regarding her allegations before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

These are smears, pure and simple. "And they debase our public discourse", Kavanaugh wrote. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out. Regarding alcohol, he said he never drank so much that he could not remember what happened the night before.

In a statement, two of the male classmates Ramirez claimed were involved, the wife of a third male student she said was involved and three other classmates disputed Ramirez's allegation.

Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of molesting her during an early 1980s high school party. At the same time, she noted that Kavanaugh has been "unequivocal in his denial" of sexual assault allegations. 18, 19, and 22, respectively.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh now faces at least two accusations of sexual misconduct, and yet, Senate Republicans remain determined to appoint him.

Asked if he and his wife Ashley had ever looked at each other and said that the confirmation process wasn't worth it in the end, Kavanaugh responded that he was determined to see it through.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, had set several deadlines since Friday for Ford to decide whether and how she would testify before the panel.

Republicans have slammed the timing of the accusations as a political smear campaign aimed at derailing Kavanaugh's confirmation. "It is being replaced by a game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination". The Supreme Court is 229 years old and women have had the right to vote in this country for less than a century.

TV stars including Allison Janney, Anna Faris, Kerry Washington, Debra Messing and Rachel Bloom wore black Monday and participated in a walk out to both show solidarity with Ford and protest the proposed appointment of Kavanaugh to the nation's highest court. But Murkowski, asked about an FBI investigation, said, "It would sure clear up all the questions, wouldn't it?"
