The White House said it is sticking by Kavanaugh's nomination to fill a vacancy on the court, the country's highest.

With Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation still in the balance, Republicans on the hill and in Trump's White House are scurrying to try to discredit Ford's story the best they can.

The White House would not comment further.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday that Ms. Ford should be respected as the allegations are investigated.

Initially the sexual misconduct allegation was conveyed in a private letter without revealing Dr Ford's name.

"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". Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with [Mark Judge], who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh.

"It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything", the letter read. "I think she's...she's mistaken something that I don't know". "Doing this in a conference call, as opposed to her offer to come forward and say things publicly is certainly not fair".

It is unclear if Trump Jr was aware at the time that Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, would make her identity known the next day in the Washington Post. "I mean, I don't know her".

While his friend watched, Ford said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.

The accuser, Christine Blassey Ford, is "willing to do whatever it takes to get her story forth", her attorney Debra Katz told NBC on Monday.

Sen. Susan Collins, one of the Republicans her own party has been working to ensure votes for Kavanaugh, tweeted that she wants both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify under oath in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

McConnell has said he would like to have Kavanaugh confirmed by October 1, the start of the Supreme Court's new term. "Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do their jobs".
