Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, land Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).

He told The New Yorker: 'I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation.

Ronan Farrow, who co-authored The New Yorker article, told CNN that some members of the Senate Judiciary Committee "feel that there was a missed opportunity to fully interrogate this allegation".

"In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect", the letter said.

The letter apparently has been in the custody of Judiciary Committee member Sen. "We had over 240 protesters who stood up screaming". "For three months, she said nothing, nothing, zero, nada, zilch".

Hill, who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of workplace sexual harassment during his confirmation hearing back in 1991, said she has seen "firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser and no one should have to endure that again". The nomination process, he said, had become "an intergalactic freakshow". "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities".

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which handles Supreme Court nominations, penned an op-ed published in the Los Angeles Times on Sunday formalizing her opposition to Kavanaugh's nomination and briefly referencing her decision to share the letter's contents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The support of only two Republicans - Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - was thought to be in question. One activist group favoring abortion choice, NARAL, called on Kavanaugh to withdraw from consideration.

In response to the Post story, the White House sent the same statement to press outlets including the Guardian. She said a reporter from Buzzfeed approached her outside her college classroom and another reporter was calling her colleagues. It had been a previously scheduled follow-up to an initial visit that Kavanaugh made to her office in August. Every other Republican in the Senate is expected to vote yes - and some Democrats from Trump-won states may join them - though it remains to be seen if the misconduct allegation will cost him any support.

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court".

Tillis also questioned the timing of the letter's existence becoming public, and why the letter's author would not come forward in a confidential setting. The agency said that is its standard process. The letter was also shared with Feinstein in July. Judge Kavanaugh submitted a questionnaire of over 17,000 pages, participated in two full days of public Senate hearings as well as a private session to discuss his background, and then he answered an additional 1,200 follow-up questions.
