But, if the very people who hold in their hands - and votes - the power to make or break Kavanaugh's nomination are admitting publicly that nearly nothing Ford says will change their mind, isn't that the sort of rank partisanship that has gotten us into this morass in the first place?

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer responded to the latest allegations by calling on Republicans to "immediately suspend the proceedings related" to the nomination and saying that he believes Kavanaugh "should withdraw from consideration".

Kavanaugh replied that he doesn't even know Swetnick and that her accusations are "from the Twilight Zone".

The four sworn affidavits are among the information the committee is considering on the eve of Ford and Kavanaugh's testimony Thursday.

"These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh", she said.

Also on Monday, Kavanaugh said he would not step aside, saying "the truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise".

And here's a fun fact: Neither the Senate Judiciary Committee's Republican chairman nor its ranking member, a Democrat, are lawyers.

And the president said he's had much experience with false accusations.

Kavanaugh on Wednesday once again rejected the allegations as "last minute smears" that were "false and uncorroborated".

Mr Kavanaugh denied he was "at any such party". "I've never done any such thing, known about any such thing". I am innocent of this charge.

Donnelly called the allegations serious and said the committee should hold off on the originally scheduled Thursday vote. Among the GOP defectors was Sen. "You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. - U.S.

The woman also made other accusations in her statement. She described gang rapes that she said occurred in which boys would line up to rape incapacitated girls. "Somebody could come and say, '30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a frightful thing to me.'. and honestly, it's a very risky period in our country and it's being perpetrated by some very evil people. because some of them know that this is just a game that they're playing".

The White House had no immediate comment.

Kavanaugh and his chief accuser Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her in high school, are set to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Another committee spokesman, Taylor Foy, said the panel received Swetnick's declaration Wednesday and "committee lawyers are in the process of reviewing it now".

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have scheduled a Friday vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court bid, less than 24 hours after the committee is scheduled to hear testimony from a woman who alleges he sexually assaulted her. And she was totally inebriated and all messed up, and she doesn't know. In the letter, Ford said she faced death threats and was relying on her lawyers and Grassley to "agree to conditions that will allow me to testify in a fair setting".

"Brett's assault on me drastically altered my life", Ford added. Asked about the move, Trump said the lawmakers "could not be nicer" and "could not be more respectful". He says she covered her mouth to prevent her screams after he pinned her on a bed.

Republicans hold a 51-49 advantage in the Senate and can't afford more than one defection to ensure confirmation without Democratic support.

After Ford came forward, two other women followed with their own allegations.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's claim and that of Deborah Ramirez, who has accused the nominee of exposing himself to her without consent during his time at Yale University.

Swetnick, who attended Gaithersburg High School in Maryland, says she attended "well over ten" parties where Kavanaugh was present.
