US Capitol Police prepare to arrest demonstrators as they protest against the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court Justice outside of the office of US Senator Susan Collins, Republican of ME, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, September 24, 2018. - President Donald Trump's newest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is expected to face punishing questioning from Democrats this week over his endorsement of presidential immunity and his opposition to abortion.

"Ramirez said that she hoped her story would support that of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has raised an allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh that bears several similarities to Ramirez's claim". There are 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee - 11 conservative Republican men and 10 Democrats.

"These are smears, pure and simple". The Judiciary panel said it had talked to three other people whom Ford has told The Washington Post were at the party where the alleged assault took place - Mark Judge, Patrick J. Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser.

The New Yorker identifies the woman as 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez.

Senate Democrats launched an investigation of a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, according to a report in The New Yorker on Sunday.

One of the authors behind the latest account into accusations against Kavanaugh, Jane Mayer, told "CBS This Morning" that at a "certain point.there's things people won't say to a reporter that they might feel they need to say to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

U.S. Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh looks on during his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 4, 2018. They include Kavanaugh's friend, Mike Judge, who Ford says was in the room when the alleged sexual attack occurred. "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name-and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building-against these last-minute allegations". He said they appear "more interested in a political takedown" than a bipartisan process.

Modric , himself, said he's enjoying the praise but added he was not obsessed with winning football's premier individual accolade. Marco Asensio , for instance, stagnated under Zidane. " They're training well, competing well ", Lopetegui said.

Ed Whelan, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center who made waves late last week after he suggested on Twitter that Ford was confusing Kavanaugh with a similar-looking student who might have sexually assaulted her, canceled his appearance at the event in Iowa, where he was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech. That prompted a key swing vote Senate Republican to say she was "appalled" by the president's comments.

One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party.

The new allegations have prompted a key senator to call for "an immediate postponement" of any further proceedings by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is considering Kavanaugh's nomination. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else.

Ramirez now claims this man was Kavanaugh, though she admits there are "significant gaps in her memories".

Kavanaugh and the White House vigorously denied the allegation Sunday night.

Kavanaugh now has to wrestle with the question of how capable he is in serving as a judge with these allegations, true or not, over his head.
