US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh speaks on the second day of his confirmation hearing in front of the US Senate on Capitol Hill in Washington DC

According to NBC News on Tuesday Judge Kavanaugh was questioned about the anonymous complaint during a phone conversation with Senate Judiciary Committee Staff.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti has provided a statement from a client to the committee.

According to Ford, she was forced by Kavanaugh during a teenage drinking party into a room, where he attempted to take off her clothes.

Kavanaugh denied the incident occurred, that he had sexually assaulted any woman in Rhode Island or that two men injured him and someone named Mark.

The lawyer, who represents adult film actress Stormy Daniels, said at the weekend that he had " significant evidence" that Kavanaugh participated in multiple gang rapes while in high school.

The Justice Department says Avenatti, made "misrepresentations" in a bankruptcy case involving his former law firm that owes more than $440,000 in unpaid federal taxes. Avenatti said Wednesday, July 4, 2018, he doesn't owe any money personally and called the court filing "politically motivated".

Swetnick claims that both Kavanaugh and his close school friend Mark Judge engaged in "highly inappropriate" conduct which included being "overly aggressive with girls". "It's ridiculous. Total Twilight Zone".

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women, putting his nomination for the US Supreme Court at risk.

The network reports that Senate Judiciary Committee investigators placed a call to Kavanaugh about the accusations on September 25 and he denied the encounter.

He denies having a "sexual or physical encounter of any kind" with Ford.

As Ford read from a prepared statement, she occasionally peered at the bench over her large-framed glasses that had slipped down her nose at the dais. Ford testified first and will be followed by Kavanaugh.

Veteran Fox News journalist Chris Wallace said Thursday after the beginning parts of the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who is accusing Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a 1982 sexual assault that she is "credible" and her words are a "disaster for the Republicans". However, Ford did not share her attacker's name with her husband until a couple's therapy session in 2012.

He vehemently denies Ford's allegations and says that perhaps she was sexually assaulted by someone in some place but it wasn't him.

Four others were identified by Ford as being in the room-Kavanaugh, two friends of his, and Leland Keyser, a longtime friend of Ford's.
