Equally bad was the recent op-ed from a White House insider underscoring President Donald Trump's incompetence. Democrats have argued throughout that the process has been rushed, with documents relating to Kavanaugh's time in the George W Bush White House withheld from congressional scrutiny. The nomination process, he said, had become "an intergalactic freakshow".

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, released a statement Sunday afternoon calling the allegations "uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago" and questioning the timing of the emergence of the letter.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives to bring this to the rest of the committee's attention only now rather than during these many steps along the way".

Ford described to the Post her concern her identity would be revealed anyway as the story snow balled.

Feinstein called on the FBI to investigate Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee".

In 1991, Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her when she worked with him at the Education Department and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Ford's decision to break her silence will add to the pressure for delay.

If Collins or Murkowski should vote for Kavanaugh, he is likely to be confirmed. The Senate Judiciary Committee has set its vote on his nomination for this coming Thursday. She says that Kavanaugh and a friend forced her into a secluded bedroom during a party in the early 1980s.

She believes that the incident occurred in the summer of 1982, when she was 15 and going to an all-girls school in Bethesda, Md. "When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth", according to the Post.

According to Ms. Ford, Mr. Judge then tried to climb on top of her, causing all three to spill over from the bed and giving her a chance to run from the room and eventually leave the house. The Post's article included an interview with Ford's husband and her lawyer, Debra Katz, and described a therapist's notes from 2012 in which Ford told of the attack.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation", Kavanaugh said in a statement released by the White House Friday. The woman making the allegation attended a nearby school.

In addition to contacting Feinstein in July, Ford also reached out to the Post.

Mr. Judge, the other teen boy Ms. Ford accused, had no comment Sunday but denied the early sketchy reports Friday. In late July, Ford sent a letter through Eshoo's office to Sen.

Feinstein stunned her colleagues earlier this week by disclosing a letter she sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Sixty-five women who knew Kavanagh in high school defended him in another letter, circulated by Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, as someone who "always treated women with decency and respect".
