Feinstein's office said it had no idea who leaked the letter.
Christine Blasey Ford is a psychology professor and research psychologist at Palo Alto University in northern California. A democrat, she is the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She will detail an alleged attack by Kavanaugh more than 30 years ago, when the two were both high school students.
Hill said that when she came forward, she was thinking about the integrity of the court and the fact that justices have lifetime appointments.
Ford was asked twice if she could be mistaken about Kavanaugh's identity, with both questions coming from Democratic senators on the panel.

The Fox News host Chris Wallace said Christine Blasey Ford's emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on her allegation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court nominee, amounted to a disaster for Republicans.
"We believe her, we support her, and we thank her for her huge bravery and patriotism", NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue said in a statement. Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, entered the room and locked the door behind them, she said. Some White House officials were not pleased with the questioning from Phoenix prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, saying she did not effectively target the weak spots in Ford's narrative and worrying that the Democrats had seized the moment.
"People were responding to her very strongly", Jackson said, although he also cautioned that it measured posts on Twitter and Facebook and was not a representation of total public sentiment. Trump said. "Because I've had a lot of false charges against me".
"It is offensive that in purporting to stand by a Supreme Court nominee who has been accused of sexual assault, Mr. Trump has chosen once again to defame and attack women, including our client, who had the courage to come forward to tell the truth about his own unwanted assaultive behaviour", said Mariann Wang.
"Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired", he added. Trump said in a tweet.
After telling Ford that she seemed to have given a clear picture of the alleged assault, Mitchell shifted her focus to the last two months, since Ford first told her representative in the House about her claim. "You represent victims. You believe them unless you have some corroborating evidence that there's something about this person's allegations. that you don't believe", Hanafin said, adding that he administered a "specific issue polygraph test".
