Mr Donald Trump dismissed Mr Bret Kavanaugh’s latest accuser as “messed up”

He will face lawmakers on Thursday morning following testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who will testify that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the early 1980s.

In her written testimony submitted Wednesday, Ford pushed back against Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans who have cast her as part of a smear campaign meant to thwart Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Brett Kavanaugh's latest accuser, says Republican leaders "don't want the truth known" about the Supreme Court nominee's alleged sexual misconduct.

"I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school", Blasey Ford will say.

The committee has said it is investigating all claims made in the Kavanaugh saga, attempting to "make sure no stone was left unturned".

"I was underneath one of them, while the two laughed".

She said she was 15 when she attended a party where she encountered Kavanaugh, who was 17 at the time.

Guerry told Stephanopoulos she knew Kavanaugh - though not well - through mutual friends.

"To the extent the attached letter is referring to me as the "friend [who] was dating him, ' the allegations it makes are both offensive and absurd".

"She and a group of four (including Kavanaugh met in a Washington D.C. bar)".

President Trump went on to comment on whether or not he would consider withdrawing the nomination. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Blasey Ford said she was finally able to escape and rushed out of the house with an "enormous sense of relief" that the teens did not follow her.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, saying he never assaulted anyone and was not at the party Ford mentions.

"I am here today not because I want to be", Ford said.

Kavanaugh has denied all of the allegations.

While Republicans can advance Kavanaugh's nomination without any Democratic support, because they only control the chamber 51-49, Kavanaugh's supporters can only lose one GOP and still advance his nomination.

"I am with judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote", Trump told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters where he is attending the organization's annual General Assembly meetings.
