"They have haunted me [and] been seared into my memory and have been hard to beat episodically as an adult", she said through tears'.

"It's ridiculous. Total Twilight Zone".

"If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yes, sure", Trump said at a press conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in NY. Kavanaugh's confirmation could solidify a conservative majority on the court for a generation.

"[Unnamed] recently realized that one of the men was Brett Kavanaugh when she saw Kavanaugh's high school yearbook photo on television over the weekend".

She also said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others "to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or a bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys", adding she remembers boys including Kavanaugh getting in lines to take part in these rapes. "Over the years, I told very, very few friends that this had happened".

"We also believe Christine Blasey Ford", the ad reads, referencing two women who accused Supreme Court nominees of sexual misconduct almost three decades apart.

The US President has also a couple of times asserted the allegations are false.

Dr. Ford's allegation dates back more than 36 years, to a party that she says occurred during our time in high school.

Kavanaugh denied Ford's allegation that he'd trapped her on a bed in a locked room during a gathering of friends when they were teenagers, saying, "I have never done this to her or to anyone". But I was not flawless in those days, just as I am not ideal today.

A fifth accusation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was revealed in an interview transcript released by the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday night.

Ford's husband is not present for the hearings and instead will be in California caring for the couple's two children today, CNN reported.

He added: "It's possible that I'll hear that and I'll say I'm changing my mind".

Protesters opposing Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

The four sworn affidavits are among the information the committee is considering on the eve of the testimony.

At a press conference in NY on Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump declined to comment on Swetnick's claims, saying he was a bit preoccupied at the United Nations to pay attention to the domestic scandals of the day, but dismissed her lawyer Michael Avenatti as a "lowlife".

President Donald Trump yesterday said he could withdraw his support for Brett Kavanaugh depending on the testimony in a high-profile Thursday hearing into multiple accusations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.

And others suggested that Grassley's comments during the hearing displayed him in a negative light and helped Ford's case.

"What they have endured ought to be considered by all of us as unacceptable and a poor reflection on the state of civility in our democracy", Mr Grassley said.

The Senate Judiciary Committee could vote on Kavanaugh's nomination as early as Friday. He will say that he "immediately, unequivocally, and categorically" denies Ford's accusations, and that he has never sexually assaulted anyone "not in high school, not in college, not ever", according to a prepared statement.
