The Senate Judiciary Committee invited Ford and Kavanaugh to testify on Monday before the committee about accusations, but Ford has asked for the FBI to investigate in advance of any hearing.

Those conclusions allegedly included Chua telling students it was "no accident" the women who clerked for Kavanaugh "looked like models", and Rubenfeld saying Kavanaugh opted for female clerks "with a certain look".

The professor, who assisted students in finding clerk positions, instructed students to dress "to exude a "model-like" femininity" in order to win Kavanaugh's favor. Rubenfeld is now the subject of an internal investigation at Yale, reportedly with regard to his own conduct with female law clerks.

The campus newspaper posted a photo of smiling "initiates" of Kavanaugh's frat, Delta Kappa Epsilon, waving a "flag" created with several pieces of women's underwear as they marched outside Yale's central administrative building on January 18, 1985.

The law professor and author of the controversial book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother publicly endorsed Kavanaugh as a "mentor to women" after he was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Donald Trump. Rather, she's become ensnared in the latest coverage of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his interaction with women. She told the Guardian, "He did not say what the look was and I did not ask".

"There is good reason so many of them have gone on to supreme court clerkships; he only hires those who are extraordinarily qualified".

"Putin said that many mistakes were made during the incident and that he expected the facts to be examined". Israel sent its air force commander to Moscow on Thursday to share the military's findings on what happened.

"In our view, the Judge has been one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers", the women wrote in the letter.

Former students, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, told the Guardian Chua's husband Professor Jed Rubenfeld, also provided unsettling advice to law hopefuls. Kavanaugh denies these allegations.

But according to a new report from the Huffington Post, Chua's characterization of Kavanaugh's job offers to women takes on a somewhat less progressive tone.

Chua, who is reportedly dealing with a serious illness, said in a statement that the only trait Kavanaugh requires in his clerks is excellence.

Meanwhile, Rubenfeld is presently the subject of an investigation at Yale over his conduct toward female students, The Guardian learned. When Chua said that Kavanaugh's clerks "looked like models", students noted that Chua's daughter was poised to work for Kavanaugh.

'In June, Yale informed me that it would conduct what it terms an "informal review" of certain allegations, but that to preserve anonymity, I was not entitled to know any specifics.
