KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state", Ford wrote.

Mr Kavanaugh's nomination has sharply divided an already closely split Senate, with most Democrats opposing him and most Republicans supporting him.

"I agree with Senator Flake that we should delay this week's vote", Feinstein said in a statement. "Judge Kavanaugh and the White House both stand by that statement".

In a statement to NBC News on Sunday, the White House said, "On Friday, Judge Kavanaugh "categorically and unequivocally" denied this allegation".

The White House did not immediately reply to a request for comment on Sunday.

Ford told the Post that she made the decision to come forward publicly after watching her story be made public without her permission.

Kavanaugh's accuser went public with allegations on Sunday, but Feinstein received a letter with the claims in July.

"Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stair well from the living room". Unsuccessful at obtaining an interview with Ford, the TV crews started going door to door. But faced with a growing Me Too movement, they are also sensitive about appearances. "With Kavanaugh's hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me". Ford named two other teenagers who she said were at the party. Democrats have called for the vote to be delayed and two Republicans on the panel - Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC - have said Ford's testimony should be heard. She was reluctant to come forward. "Let's make very clear that these Democratic senators ... were not interested in Judge Kavnaugh's significant record, his character and integrity, as testified to by many women". "These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid".

But, her client has not been asked by any committee members to testify, Katz noted, which is "interesting".

Part of the notes say that Ford told the therapist four boys were involved in the alleged attack, according to the Post, but Ford said this was written in error.

'We have heard from nobody, ' Katz told CNN's 'New Day'.

Ford is now 51 and works as a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

"This has to be weighed against what we already know-which is that Judge Kavanaugh is a man of good character and integrity", Conway said, noting he has been through half a dozen rounds of Federal Bureau of Investigation "vetting", and has been "lauded by women in every aspect of his life", including former classmates, and mothers of young girls he coaches in basketball.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has completed its hearings on Kavanaugh and planned to vote this week on his nomination.

A full vote by the Senate is expected by the end of the month.

Feinstein issued a statement on Sunday afternoon in support of Ford and calling for the FBI to investigate the matter before the Senate advances Kavanaugh's nomination.

"In weighing her privacy and the consequences to herself and her family, she has demonstrated her willingness to risk these factors to present the truth", Eshoo said.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives", said Taylor Foy, the spokesman for Sen. She also reached out to her U.S. Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-California 18th District), and via the congresswoman, sent a letter to Sen.
