And in addition to Kavanaugh's hostility to workers in his rulings, NNU Co-Presidents Jean Ross and Deborah Burger wrote senators concerning Ford's allegations.

Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called for the panel to postpone the hearing following the allegation by Ramirez.

"Last night, another false and uncorroborated accusation from 35 years ago was published", he wrote.

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly.

Top Republicans include Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have slammed what they described as a "smear campaign" orchestrated in part by Democrats.

"The FBI must investigate ALL allegations", the California senator said. Schumer accused Republicans of "a rush job to avoid the truth".

Trump made clear he considered the allegations politically motivated.

Before President Trump's nominee can be approved for the vacant seat on the USA top court, he has to be approved by the 20-person Senate Judiciary Committee and then the whole Senate. The woman said Kavanaugh forced her to come in contact with his penis while both were inebriated at a party. "I'm not going anywhere", Kavanaugh said in excerpts released by Fox News prior to the planned broadcast. Brett Kavanaugh is an absolutely outstanding person. "I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone". The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out.

Proceeding with Kavanaugh seems to give Republicans their best shot at filling the Supreme Court vacancy - and giving the court an increasingly conservative tilt - before November's elections, when GOP Senate control is in play. Even if you can't walk out, you can still post a photo or video. As of Sunday evening, Trump had not spoken to Kavanaugh himself.

The demonstrations on Capitol Hill were especially intense.

Wear black and walk out.

Away from Washington, there were walkouts in support of Ford and Ramirez by dozens of liberal groups.

The New York Times reported Sunday that Kavanaugh's team has acknowledged that the calendars do not in themselves disprove the allegations because he could have gone to a party that wasn't logged in said calendars.

The Associated Press tried reaching Ramirez at her home in Boulder, Colorado. A sign on her front door indicated she would have no comment. That accusation, in a report by The New Yorker magazine, pushed the White House and Senate Republicans onto the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats for further investigation.

During the interview, MacCallum presents Kavanaugh with an excerpt from an email from Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti.

He also suggested reporters "should look into the lawyers doing the representation" of the women. Scores of Democratic senators, commentators and unhinged protesters have rushed to defend Ford even though what she claims happened more than three decades ago is devoid of corroborating evidence.
