Trump and Kavanaugh were not scheduled to meet while the judge was at the White House on Monday, two officials said.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Christine Blasey Ford said that as a high school student in suburban Maryland decades earlier, a "stumbling drunk" Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and attempted to remove her clothing.
Ford did not tell anyone about the alleged incident until couples therapy with her husband in 2012, but she reportedly didn't name Kavanaugh at the time, stating only that it was boys from a nearby elite high school who are now "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington".
On Monday, Katz said her client is willing to testify before the Senate on her allegation that Kavanaugh tried to rape her in high school. Republicans will never be able to ask Ford anything useful, because they're mostly white men, and white men are, I'm told, perfunctorily racist and misogynist.
"We now know there are so many women who had similar experiences at different points of their lives, and the idea that a guy who sexually assaulted you would be on the Supreme Court is so stomach-turning that I think that there will just be an awareness and a reminder of how important it is to stand up, get involved and vote", McKenna said.
The White House said Monday that they were willing to listen to Ford's allegations after she identified herself over the weekend.
"She should be heard", Conway said on Fox TV.
Several Democrats joined Feinstein in calling for more scrutiny of the allegation before a vote.
The sites attempted to discredit Ford by weaponizing her Rate My Professor reviews.
The confirmation fight comes just weeks before the November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are seeking to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans.
Vikings sign Dan Bailey after waiving Daniel Carlson — Kicker carousel continues
Asked about what went into the decision to let go of Carlson, the Vikings' head coach responded with his own question. It really should not be too surprising to anyone that the Vikings cut ties with Carlson on Monday.
Apparently we've been saying Chrissy Teigen's name WRONG this whole time
She says her name is pronounced Tie-gen (like the thing guys wear to work) instead of Tee-gen (like the shirt). The model also revealed on Sunday that she is sporting a huge bruise on her leg ahead of the award show.
NASA launches satellite to track Earth’s melting ice
Each laser in a pair sits 295 feet (90 meters) apart, and each pair of lasers lies 2.1 miles (3.3 kilometers) from one another. NASA has launched a satellite created to precisely measure changes in Earth's ice sheets, glaciers, sea ice and vegetation.
Ms Feinstein on Sunday called on the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee".
"This is a completely false allegation".
Her performance at the mock hearings combined with her lack of support from senators of both parties led Bush to withdraw her nomination.
On Sunday evening, a pair of outgoing Republican senators said outright that the Senate Judiciary Committee should not vote on Kavanaugh's nomination until they talk to his accuser. This testimony seems particularly important, given the suspiciously timed accusation of sexual assault coming from 51-year-old accuser Christine Blasey Ford.
Ford's allegations come almost a year after the #MeToo movement was popularised following the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein, who has since been charged with rape and other sexual crimes.
Lawmakers have not made any request for Ford to testify publicly before the Judiciary Committee. He added: "We need to hear from her".
The Minority withheld even the anonymous allegations for six weeks, only to later decide that they were serious enough to investigate on the eve of the committee vote, after the vetting process had been completed. She sent the letter to Feinstein in July, and Feinstein did not reveal the letter until the 11th hour.
The GOP-controlled Judiciary Committee has previously scheduled a Thursday vote on whether to recommend approval of Kavanaugh's nomination in the full Senate.
Mark Judge, who has been named as the third person in the room, told The Weekly Standard the allegations were "absolutely nuts". A senior official said Kavanaugh did not meet with Trump, who himself faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct that emerged during the 2016 presidential election. It is unclear with whom the Trump Supreme Court pick was meeting.
