Trump says he would have pushed Kavanaugh through

At the United Nations, meanwhile, President Donald Trump said on the eve of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford that Republicans have been "nice" and "respectful" in their treatment of Ford. He said he did not remember being at a party with her.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump ramped up his criticism of Ford and Ramirez on Friday, calling the allegations against Kavanaugh "a con game being played by Democrats".

"The Senate, the Republicans, could not be nicer in the way they're handling this". Not in high school, not ever.

Now, after more than a week of public and contentious negotiations between Ford's lawyers and Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, the judge and the professor accusing him are slated to testify.

Murkowski noted in an interview with The New York Times that the need for investigation goes beyond Kavanaugh's hearing and has to do with listening to possible victims. He said he went to church on Sundays and worked on service projects.

Additionally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor on Monday to make forceful remarks in support of Kavanaugh.

"I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I've never sexually assaulted anyone", Kavanaugh said in the Fox News interview. Kavanaugh and his friends denied they were there.

The four sworn affidavits are among the information the committee is considering on the eve of Ford and Kavanaugh's testimony Thursday.

And in a late-night tweet Wednesday, Trump warned "the Democrats are playing a high level CON GAME in their vicious effort to destroy a fine person".

Swetnick alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge were among the boys she saw "lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", though it does not appear that Swetnick witnessed such an attack.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would firm up conservative control of the Supreme Court and advance Trump's goal of moving the high court and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

In his declaration, Ford's husband said he learned of his wife's experience with sexual assault "around the time we got married" but that she didn't share details until a couple's therapy session in 2012. Clune wants to talk before handing anything over.

Some in the White House expressed relief that Kavanaugh, 53, presented a positive image to counter the allegations.

The woman also made other accusations in her statement.

The Senate panel is scheduled to hear from Kavanaugh's chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, on Thursday.

"I know he's going to stand by me", Kavanaugh said.

Another friend, Adela Gildo-Mazzon, said in her declaration that Ford told her about the alleged assault during a meal in Mountain View, California, in June 2013.

Wilkinson said: "They announced that there were notes and that there had been a lie detector test" but that those materials were not turned over "even though they were requested".

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's allegation, as he has with the charge by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to forcibly remove her clothes during a drunken party when they were in high school in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh denies the allegations. Senior Senate Republicans said a vote in the full Senate could happen as early as next Tuesday.

The choice of veteran attorney Rachel Mitchell to ask the questions represents a stiff challenge to Ford, who will be stepping into a global spotlight to tell her story at a quintessential moment of American history.

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.
