A substantial delay could push confirmation past the November elections, when Democrats have a shot at winning Senate control, plus allow more time for unforeseen problems to crop up.

Kavanaugh has denied the accusation he sexually assaulted Ford while drunk at a party in his high school years and said he would be willing to appear before the committee to refute it.

"They are totally intent on getting Judge Kavanaugh onto the Supreme Court, come hell or high water", said Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono, who touted a letter of support for Ford signed by more than 1,000 women who graduated from the Maryland school Ford attended in the 1980s.

"This last year and a half has been the best year and a half in my time in the Senate", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. So, my friends, keep the faith.

"If I could go back to high school and find everyone who tried to take advantage of us", the Republican said, shaking her head.

US President Donald Trump introduces his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, July 9, 2018. He still hopes to do so despite the emergence of Ford's allegations.

Michele Bachmann, a former Minnesota congresswoman and 2012 Republican presidential candidate, said the 36-year-old allegations against Kavanaugh had "come out of nowhere and I think the Senate has bent over backwards to take this woman's allegations seriously and to give her a hearing". Those conditions had cast strong doubts on her willingness to appear, and it became unclear whether Republicans would even hold the hearing.

Ford wants to be questioned by senators, not a special counsel. Her lawyers say she's relocated her family due to death threats.

Without directly referencing Trump Jr., Conway said Ford "should not be insulted, and she should not be ignored".

The Senate is narrowly controlled by Republicans, who have embraced the idea of a quick vote on Kavanaugh's nomination if Ford does not to testify. On the Senate Judiciary Committee zero Republicans are women.

Democrats have said the White House can order a more detailed FBI investigation, as occurred during the 1991 confirmation process for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas after he was accused of sexual harassment.

"The president doesn't need anybody to tell him". In response, Ford told the Washington Post: "There is zero chance that I would confuse them".

Calling on Dr Ford to "bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!", he asked: "Why didn't someone call the Federal Bureau of Investigation 36 years ago?" She says she needs time to secure her home and family.

"Beyond the Senate, Republicans are bracing for the impact of Monday's scheduled hearing and the political consequences of an unpredictable and likely emotional session that could expand a Senate matter into a defining moment for the party, especially if Grassley or other Republican men aggressively question Ford about her personal life and the alleged assault". Susan Collins, R-Maine, said she was appalled by Trump's tweet. Sen Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called it "another disgusting attempt to discredit Dr. Ford", while Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. McConnell responded affirmatively when asked if he had confidence that Kavanaugh would be confirmed, telling CNN, "Oh yeah".

Ford's lawyers talked to Judiciary Committee staff on Thursday night, a committee spokesman said without giving details. Feelings are intense on both sides: 50 percent of Democrats "strongly" oppose him; 49 percent of Republicans "strongly" support him. "We're watching events unfold".

Trump also lashed out at Sen. The president has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women - all liars, he has said.

In a series of tweets, the president again delivered his full support for Judge Kavanaugh, saying he was a "fine man, with an impeccable reputation".
