Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings continue with Christine Blasey Ford testimony

Ms Ford will testify first at the hearing, which starts at 10am (3pm United Kingdom time) and at her request is being held in a small hearing room that seats only a few dozen spectators.

Interested in Supreme Court?

The Senate Judiciary Committee is looking into a claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh assaulted a fourth woman.

Kavanaugh's initial accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday with a vote to confirm Kavanaugh scheduled for Friday, despite no formal FBI investigations into any of the accusations. He has denied all the allegations.

A woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh does not believe he belongs on the nation's highest court, she said in an interview Thursday.

Kavanaugh is expected to face hard questions, not just from senators, but from an Arizona sex crimes prosecutor brought in to handle the Senate interviews.

"I can only say that what they have done to this man is incredible", he continued.

The release also outlines a number of others the committee has interviewed, including friends of Kavanaugh and those who know the women who have lodged accusations against him.

"We're dealing with an anonymous letter about an anonymous person, and anonymous friend", Kavanaugh reportedly told lawmakers, according to NBC News.

Mr Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge who has always been eyed for the Supreme Court, has repeatedly denied all the allegations, saying he had never heard of the latest accuser and calling her accusations "ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

Since Ford's allegations became public, at least three and possibly four other women have come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. He has denied all the allegations. Kavanaugh arrived and sat before the committee to deliver his own testimony and submit to questioning. "I can't tell you.

I want to see", the president said. "I have to watch tomorrow".

Ford, in prepared testimony for a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, described in detail an evening during which she thought Kavanaugh was going to rape her at a house party in summer 1982 when they were teenagers.
