Here's Brett Kavanaugh's 1982 calendar in defending sexual assault allegation

Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh attends a meeting with Chuck Grassley R-IA chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the US Capitol in Washington DC

"This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

"I will say to these witnesses - these human beings - we owe you both a honest apology", Flake said about Kavanaugh and Ford.

On Tuesday, Ford also sent in documents, including signed statements from four people who corroborated her account of the assault.

The 51-year-old Ford made the accusation in a letter to Democratic lawmakers after Kavanaugh was shortlisted for the Supreme Court opening vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two other women, putting his nomination for the high court at risk. Russell Wheeler, an expert on the judicial selection process at the Brookings Institution, said he was unaware of a similar media interview by a Supreme Court nominee in the past 100 years.

On Thursday morning, both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford will go before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Those elections could shift the balance of power in Congress as Democrats seek to regain control from conservatives.

Gildo-Mazzon says she contacted Ford's lawyers after reading her account in a Washington Post story published on September 16.

President Trump attacked Brett Kavanaugh's second accuser Tuesday, saying she "has nothing" on the Supreme Court nominee and was "totally inebriated and all messed up" during a college party at which, she said, Kavanaugh exposed himself to her. "She said that she had been nearly raped by someone who was now a federal judge".

In a third affidavit, Adela Gildo-Mazzon, a friend of more than a decade, said Ford first told her about the assault in June, 2013. Susan Collins of Maine, Arizona's Jeff Flake and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski _ would react to the latest accusation.

Blasey Ford's lawyers have yet to say they agree with that move or other conditions Grassley has imposed.

Lublin said Cosby assaulted her in 1989 while Lasha said she was assaulted in 1986 when she was an aspiring actress. More than 60 other women have accused Cosby of sexual assaults dating back decades.

Outside groups dig in as allegation roils Kavanaugh nomination
If that timetable slips, it would become increasingly hard for Republicans to schedule a vote before the November 6 elections. The Democratic members of the committee are reportedly not planning on being in attendance to participate.

The Talk: A teary-eyed Julie Chen bids farewell
Sara Gilbert , a co-host and the creator of the show, expressed gratitude to Chen before the conclusion of the broadcast. The reports, at the time, didn't state whether or not Julie will remain as host of Big Brother .

Kavanaugh has staunchly denied that he ever sexually assaulted anyone.

It is from this experience that I concluded that although Brett was normally reserved, he was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk.

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of OR said Grassley's decision to go ahead with the hearing "sends a very powerful statement that women's voices in America really don't matter, that the evidence, the facts, all the things that may come to light tomorrow are secondary to just jamming this through".

Those who doubt Ramirez's allegation point to her admission that there are gaps in her memory of the night because she was intoxicated and the fact that The New Yorker said it took her six days to asses her own memory of the event. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. Ford alleges he witnessed the alleged assault.

One Democrat is heading to the federal court in an attempt to stop the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Said Trump: "They could have pushed it through two and a half weeks ago and you wouldn't be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred". "But they didn't do that", Trump told reporters in NY, where he is attending the annual United Nations gathering of world leaders.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer has called on Kavanaugh to withdraw himself.

At their regular Tuesday party lunch, Republicans were told to be prepared to be in Washington this weekend to process Kavanaugh's nomination, senators said.

Since Ford came forward publicly with her allegation in The Washington Post, another woman has accused Kavanaugh of past sexual misconduct.

In a break from convention, the outside lawyer, whose name was not released, will question Ford and Kavanaugh on behalf of the committee's Republican senators, 11 white men.
