The ad reads in part: "As men who are allies in the fight to end violence and harassment against women and girls, we write to express our strong support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for her willingness to speak out publicly and testify before the Senate about the sexual assault that she says was perpetrated against her by Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh".

"This is ridiculous and from the twilight zone", Kavanaugh said in a statement.

"And I'm standing up and filing this case, to say "This must end", Merkley said during a conference call with reporters".

Attorneys for Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University, provided the results of the polygraph test to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In the room, with Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, she said, a drunk Kavanaugh "groped me and tried to take off my clothes".

Since Ford's accusations, at least two other women have come forward with similar accusations.

"I could conceivably be turned down by someone that desperately wanted the job two months ago", Trump said, referring to a future Supreme Court nominee.

On Wednesday morning, Trump antagonist Michael Avenatti released an affidavit from a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, who claimed to have been drugged and "gang raped" at a party in high school where Kavanaugh was present.

Larry Hogan of Maryland, Charlie Baker of MA, and John Kasich of OH have all spoken in favor of investigating the allegations from three separate women against Kavanaugh. The panel has set a vote for Friday on Kavanaugh's confirmation and the full Senate could vote as early as Tuesday.

Kavanaugh came out with guns blazing, nearly as if he could yell the sexual assault allegations away. Earlier this month, he told Judiciary Committee staffers he didn't recall ever meeting Ford.

Forecasters said "catastrophic" freshwater flooding was expected along waterways far from the coast of the Carolinas. Roughly 1 million people are under evacuation orders. " Your time is running out ", he warned.

The Senate Judiciary Committee was reportedly investigating two further reports against Kavanaugh this week, one of which alleges he violently pushed a woman he was dating up against a wall in 1998.

Judges are nominated by the president and hold the position for life.

In her statement, Swetnick listed out a long resume of government work and said she has an active "public trust" clearance for work with the Treasury Department, IRS and US Mint.

Almost three decades later during her visit to Utah, Hill recalled senators who dismissed her story as "crap" and called her an "erotomaniac".

"100%" she told Sen. Orrin Hatch, who brought a copy of "The Exorcist" to suggest she had plagiarized her experience from the book.

According to Ms Ford, Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in the 1980s when she was 15 and he was 17.

Wading into the #MeToo moment, Mr Trump said he views such accusations "differently" because he has "had a lot of false charges made against me". "Access to equal justice for all is what was at stake in 1991 and it is what is at stake now". She repeatedly used the word "correction" when going through a series of minor clarifications in Ford's letters and comments.

Ford also insisted she had no political agenda in coming forward with her accusations, telling lawmakers, "I am an independent person and I am no one's pawn". Hatch said Ford must be "mistaken". "Obviously, I take it very seriously, but I haven't even finished reading, I have it right here with me, but I haven't finished reading it".

Ford politely answered them - at times apologizing for conflicts like saying she hadn't again spoken to other people were at the party where she says Kavanaugh assaulted her, and then following up that she did speak again to a woman who was there.
