Bringing in Mitchell is "a transparently clumsy attempt to avoid the visual of a panel of all-male Republican Judiciary Committee members grilling a survivor about her sexual assault allegations", said Michael Polenberg, vice president of government affairs for Safe Horizons, a victims' advocacy organization in NY.

"I witnessed Brett Kavanaugh consistently engage in excessive drinking and inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women during the early 1980s", she wrote. But, he said, the issue is a "moot point" because the committee has not invited her to speak.

Along with the declaration, Avenatti released email correspondence showing that he attempted to get a response to the allgeations from the Judiciary Committee several times before releasing Swetnick's name and declaration.

On Tuesday, President Trump told reporters on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly meeting that Democrats are playing a "con game" with the Kavanaugh confirmation process, recognizing he is qualified but throwing up uncorroborated claims at the last minute in the hope he can defeated.

The Republican-controlled committee, led by 11 men, on Tuesday said it had hired a female lawyer to question Ford.

The allegations against Kavanaugh have endangered his chances of confirmation in the Senate, which Trump's fellow Republicans control by a narrow 51-49 margin.

Trump said Ford's allegation was 36 years old "and nobody ever heard about it".

"I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about". She also urged the White House to direct the FBI to investigate Blasey's allegations, as well as sexual misconduct claims brought by a second woman. He said he went to church on Sundays and worked on service projects.

"I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity and I know I'm telling the truth".

McConnell called Trump to say Kavanaugh tweets weren’t helpful
Trump also praised Kavanaugh as a "fine, fine man" and a "great scholar" who has been "great at everything he's ever done". Both Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about the allegations.

The magnitude of Woods's 80th PGA Tour victory wasn't lost on the president, who has partnered with Woods in the past. The gallery at East Lake was enormous in anticipation of Woods winning for the first time in more than five years.

But in his testimony, Kavanaugh admits to "juvenile misbehavior" that makes him "cringe now".

"If there are allegations out there, Miss Ramirez needs to be willing to come forward with them and just as Dr. Ford has been willing to come forward, albeit reluctantly, and I understand that is so, and so in order for us to take it under consideration, she needs to take the next step", she said. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.

The four sworn affidavits are among the information the committee is considering on the eve of Ford and Kavanaugh's testimony Thursday.

According to the poll, 83 percent of Republicans said they supported Kavanaugh, compared to the 9 percent of Democrats in support of him. She said Thursday's hearing was not about Kavanaugh's behaviour as a youth.

Swetnick alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge were among the boys she saw "lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", though it does not appear that Swetnick witnessed such an attack. 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".

That's set up a he-said, she-said standoff over the allegations. Clune wants to talk before handing anything over.

The White House had no immediate comment. He also faces a second accusation of sexual assault from Deborah Ramirez, who claims Kavanaugh exposed himself and pushed his genitals into her face at a drunken party during the 1983-84 academic year at Yale University.

"Brett Kavanaugh", she replied. "I'm confident we are going to win", McConnell said, adding the vote would come "in the very near future".
