"Monday is her opportunity", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday. But they're united in their condemnation this week of Sen.

U.S. President Donald Trump answers a question about the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court and allegations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh during a joint news conference with Poland's President Andrzej Duda in the East Room of the White House in Washington, U.S., September 18, 2018.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during their high school years in the 1980s, has moved out of her house and hired private security detail because of death threats she has received since coming forward.

Grassley said Tuesday that he will invite only two witnesses to the hearing to testify before the committee next Monday: Kavanaugh and his accuser Ford.

Hirono said she expects all of the "enlightened men in our country" to rise up and say, "We can not continue the victimization and the smearing of someone like Dr. Ford". "The hearing questions need to have a frame, and the investigation is the best frame for that; a neutral investigation that can pull together the facts, create a record, so that the senators can draw on the information they receive to develop their question", Hill said to George Stephanopoulos while on ABC today.

Mr Kavanaugh has "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegations. It's also giving de Leon an opening to criticize Feinstein in his uphill election fight. The newspaper quoted Ford's detailed description of the incident, and said it also viewed notes from a 2013 therapy session in which she had called it a "rape attempt".

They also backed Ford's call for an FBI investigation and hinted they may not attend the hearing if she does not testify. But, I do not feel that she's accurate that it could have been Brett Kavanaugh. "We want to get to the bottom of everything".

"This allegation could be made against anyone at any time, absolutely non-disprovable", Coulter told Fox News' Tucker Carlson.

"It's impossible to take this process seriously", Feinstein said.

Kavanaugh went to the White House on Monday, but Trump said he did not meet with his nominee.

"There are gaps in her memory", Cornyn said.

Despite the potential for high drama and even disaster, Blasey Ford's offer to testify before the Judiciary Committee was one Trump, McConnell and the Senate Republicans could not refuse while still hoping to confirm Kavanaugh. The letter's contents leaked last week and Ford identified herself in an interview with the Washington Post published on Sunday.

The confirmation fight comes just weeks before the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are seeking to take control of Congress from Trump's party and work to stymie the president's agenda.

Manafort pleaded guilty last week to criminal charges stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into Russian interference in the USA 2016 presidential election and possible co-ordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow. He will state his case before representatives of the United States Senate. De Leon denied knowledge of it and moved out after the news broke.

But Chris Strohm of Bloomberg News, citing someone familiar with the matter, reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation hadn't said it didn't want to be involved in evaluating the Ford accusations. Tony Mendoza, who eventually resigned.

Patrick J. Smyth sent a letter to Republican judiciary committee chair Charles Grassley and top Democrat Dianne Feinstein in which he denied seeing any "improper conduct" by Kavanaugh, a classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the letter.

"As one of the CA Capitol women who helped elevate the issue I can attest to Kevin's lack of action", tweeted Alicia Lewis, a Sacramento lobbyist.
