Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, posted the declaration on Twitter and provided it to the committee.

Transcripts of private interviews with committee investigators, released late Wednesday, show they also asked Kavanaugh about two other previously undisclosed accusations received by Senate offices.

Days after Kavanaugh's Senate hearing, the press reported confidential allegations made to a member of Congress by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in 1982 while the two were both in high school. Judge, who Ford said was present at the time of the assault, said in a letter sent to the Judiciary Committee by his lawyer that he had "no memory of this alleged incident".

Ford is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about that allegation on Thursday.

"It's ridiculous. Total Twilight Zone".

Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale University classmate, has said that the nominee once exposed himself to her at a dormitory party in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh has flatly denied all accusations, including during a national television interview on Fox News Monday night. "Once the New Yorker piece came out ... that spurred Republicans to say we demand a vote on Kavanaugh".

Judge Kavanaugh strongly denied the allegations by Ms Swetnick, 55, who has worked extensively for the federal government including for the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service.

Since then, multiple women have come forward against "The Cosby Show " star and leveled similar allegations. She added: "I had to relive every moment of the sexual assault in horrifying detail in front of Mr.

She claimed to have witnessed the District of Columbia appeals judge "consistently engage in excessive drinking" during the socials, and that he was "abusive and physically aggressive" towards young women in attendance.

Trump said at a news conference in NY that he'll watch the testimony from Kavanaugh and a woman who's accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

In one of the affidavits, family friend Keith Koegler said he wrote to Ms Ford in a June 29 email, "I remember you telling me about him, but I don't remember his name, do you mind telling me so I can read about him?" "I became aware of efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to spike the "punch" at house parties I attended with drugs and/or grain alcohol so as to cause girls to lose their inhibitions and their ability to say 'No, '" she said.

She said at some parties boys lined up by a bedroom to assault incapacitated girls.

"Every woman of my vintage has not just one story but many stories, but we thought there was nothing you could do about it - boys will be boys - so just find a way to get out of it", said Ginsburg, 85. She did not identify her attackers. "I never saw them do anything wrong", he said of his friends Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly.

But even if the committee approves Kavanaugh on Friday, its investigation would continue, Sen. Judge Kavanaugh understood that he testified under penalty of felony, subject to up to 5 years of imprisonment.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said the hearing was discussed during today's closed caucus luncheon, telling reporters afterward that "our goal is to have a respectful hearing, which is what we believe Dr. Ford would like to have".
