US President Donald Trump is seen during a bilateral meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron (off frame) in NY on September 24, 2018, a day before the start of the General Debate of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minnesota, said that fellow members on the Senate Judiciary Committee are being "shut out" from getting any information from any other witnesses and accusers of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the committee plans to move ahead with the confirmation process to send Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

"The second accuser has nothing", Trump said of Ramirez. "The second accuser thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not".

With Republicans pressing hard to get his nomination approved as soon as this weekend, Kavanaugh and Blasey Ford are to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday in what could prove a fiery hearing. She said they were playing a drinking game at the time and admits there are gaps in her memory of that night.

President Donald Trump and most Senate Republicans have said an FBI investigation isn't needed. She says her experience has pushed her to back Kavanaugh's accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who goes by Christine Blasey professionally. And particularly when you think about the allegation that Dr. Ford has made where she has - you know, where this letter was leaked after the FBI investigation, after, you know, he answered 1,300 questions by the committee and sat for over 30 hours of questioning, yeah, I can see how he does not think that this has been a fair process.

She told the New Yorker Magazine that the incident happened while they were both students at Yale.

Mr Trump called Judge Kavanaugh "just a wonderful human being".

"Labeling this a partisan smear job demeans not only the senators in my caucus", Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said.

He began his career as a clerk to Anthony Kennedy, the justice whose Supreme Court seat he is seeking to fill.

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh fights to salvage his nomination to the US Supreme Court a diverse cast of characters has emerged in the process.

As a result, Kavanaugh and his family, "including his two young daughters, have faced serious death threats and vicious assaults", Grassley said. 'We aren't announcing the name for her safety, ' Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley of Iowa told Politico. "They finally did reach him, and he said we are not issuing a statement".

Ford, a California college professor, alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her down and tried to remove her clothes at a party three decades ago. "She admits that there are time lapses".

Trump and Republican leaders are accusing Democrats of a smear campaign by using accusations by two women of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh in the 1980s to try scuttling his Senate confirmation. Perhaps this will, in turn, create a system where voices of sexual assault victims are heard and believed.

Republicans said they were determined to push the nomination through the narrowly-divided Senate as soon as a possible, rejecting Democratic calls to freeze the process to let the FBI investigate all of the allegations.

The second accusation against Kavanaugh was reported by the New Yorker and dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University.

Kavanaugh later contributed to prosecutor Kenneth Starr's report into Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky and went on to become part of George W. Bush's legal team working on the 2000 Florida recount, which resulted in Bush winning the presidency.
