Kavanaugh has since said that he too would be willing to testify under oath as well. It's not yet clear if allegations by Ford will lead to new hearings for Kavanaugh as Hill's did for Thomas almost 27 years ago.

"Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement", said spokeswoman Kerri Kupec. Trump said he did not meet with his nominee and declined to say whether Kavanaugh had offered to withdraw, dismissing the question as "ridiculous".

He called Kavanaugh "somebody very special", who "never even had a little blemish on his record".

"If it takes a little delay, it'll take a little delay", Trump said of the confirmation process.

White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Monday that Ford "should not be ignored or insulted; she should be heard".

The alleged incident happened the summer before Ford's junior year at a small party, Ford's lawyer, Lisa Banks, said in an interview with Morning Edition's Rachel Martin.

"I've made it clear that I'm not comfortable moving ahead with the vote on Thursday if we have not heard her side of the story or explore this further", Flake told The Washington Post. He said he would be willing to talk to the committee "in any way" it deems appropriate to "defend my integrity".

Noting that the accusation dates back 36 years to when Kavanaugh was in high school, McConnell said on the Senate floor that Democrats unveiled it "at the last minute in an irregular manner". Wilkinson has not returned calls from CNN seeking comment.

The GOP-controlled Judiciary Committee has previously scheduled a Thursday vote on whether to recommend approval of Kavanaugh's nomination in the full Senate. Susan Collins, R-Maine, wouldn't say if the vote should be postponed.

"I think he's on track, very much on track", Trump said.

Despite that, Napolitano said, in the "post-Clarence Thomas era" of Supreme Court hearings, both Ford and Kavanaugh will be asked to testify under oath.

Those looking to how the public received Hill's accusations against Thomas in hopes that Kavanaugh will still prevail may see a good sign in that the percentage of Americans supporting his nomination did not drop after Hill's allegations and testimony. "I never saw Brett act that way". The FBI have said they will not be investigating the matter. The FBI has I think gone through a process six times with him over the years where he went to higher and higher positions.

Josh Gordon Traded to the New England Patriots, Just As You Suspected
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the New England Patriots are "close" to a deal for the talented but troubled receiver. In those five games, Gordon turned 18 catches into 335 yards and one touchdown.

Ford went public with her allegation in an article published by The Washington Post on Sunday.

Ford said she was reluctant to come forward until reporters began contacting her. Kavanaugh, she told the Post, pinned her to a bed at a Maryland party in the early 1980s and tried to remove her clothing and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. "She didn't do it on a whim", Schumer said of the consequences victims often face for coming forward with allegations of sexual assault. She also apparently recently passed a polygraph test about her allegation, which seems to prove for sure that she believes that this really did happen.

Feinstein is facing backlash for bringing the letter into play so close to the confirmation vote, and in the words of Fox News' Tammy Bruce, using it as a "political hatchet".

"These allegations are serious and deserve to be treated with respect", Cruz said in a statement. But she said she didn't come forward at first because she feared retaliation.

In a statement released by Sen. "Feinstein did everything to protect the privacy of our mutual constituent". These are elements it probably should have, especially if she is asking us to kill a Supreme Court nomination, at the last possible moment, based on an allegation that is nearly forty years old. "She believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped", Debra S. Katz told NBC's "Today" show.
