Ford made a decision to go public after reporters began contacting her last week.

The other male accused in Ford's allegation told the New Yorker, "I have no recollection of that".

Six Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sued the National Archives to gain access to documents related to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's time in the George W. Bush administration, according to a report on Monday.

"It seemed like a lot of times the staff was cooperating at times ... about judicial nominations", Kavanaugh said at his recent hearing.

Kavanaugh has vigorously denied the allegations, saying they are "completely false". The White House is standing by Kavanaugh's initial denial. Ford said that Kavanaugh covered her mouth his his hand when she attempted to scream. Heitkamp, who's facing a challenge from Cramer this fall, has not said how she'll vote.

"At one point she walked away to go to the bathroom and went up a small flight of stairs, at which point she was pushed into a bedroom". "They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help".

"Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with (another teen, name redacted), who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh". Both are under enormous pressure from outside groups who want them to oppose Kavanaugh on grounds that as a justice he could vote to undercut the Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion in the U.S.

Because Trump's fellow Republicans control a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, Democrats can not stop Kavanaugh's appointment unless some Republicans make a rare decision to break with their party and vote against Trump.

Thomas, the second African-American nominated to the Supreme Court, denied the allegations and said he was the victim of "a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves". "I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford told the newspaper, adding, "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing". Mark Judge called Ford "absolutely nuts".

As of late Sunday evening, Trump had yet to comment about the Ford allegation on his Twitter account. "She's mistaken something, but I don't know her".

Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in California, told the Washington Post that in July she sent a letter to Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo about the incident but requested confidentiality at the time. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

"I never saw Brett act that way", Judge said.
