Women and men across the country are planning a national walkout on Monday afternoon in a show of solidarity with sexual assault survivors, as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford prepares to testify regarding her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Ramirez is cited by the New Yorker as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken dormitory party. "I know Brett. I know who he is", said Ashley, adding that she does not know what happened to Ford, but that she feels badly for her family through this process.

"For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago, and 30 years ago and never mention it - all of a sudden it happens", Trump said.

Christine Blasey Ford was the first woman to come forward, claiming that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a high school party. She accused Kavanaugh of pinning her down on a bed and covering her mouth so she could not make noise as he tried to remove her clothing.

In a statement, Grassley said the Judiciary committee's majority staff learned of the allegation made by Ramirez from The New Yorker's report.

Ramirez was initially hesitant to speak publicly, she told the magazine, partly because her memory contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, negotiated with Ford's lawyers last week over the terms of her appearance.

"I don't think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter", he said. Clune then had the chutzpah to claim, "I don't know what else we can do if they're not going to engage, but blaming us for being non-cooperative is just, you know, flat-out not consistent with how things have gone and what the emails show".

Lawyer Michael Avenatti - who represents porn star Stormy Daniels in the dispute over her claim she was paid to remain silent about an alleged tryst with Mr Trump - shared an e-mail exchange on Twitter in which he promised the committee evidence of further misconduct by Mr Kavanaugh at 1980s house parties.

The Post reported Sunday that Keyser said in a brief interview at her home that she still believes Ford, even if she doesn't remember the party.

McConnell said Senate Democrats and their allies are "trying to destroy a man's personal and professional life on the basis of decades-old allegations that are unsubstantiated and uncorroborated".

Kavanaugh told Grassley and Feinstein that "smears, pure and simple" against him "debase our public discourse".

Kavanaugh said in a statement issued by the White House that the alleged incident described by Ramirez "did not happen". "I was working in the debate office one day and I asked the coach to come over and look at something I had written". Foy says Democrats "actively withheld information" from the Republicans and "it increasingly appears that they are more interested in a political takedown than pursuing allegations through a bipartisan and professional investigative process".

Ford committed to an "open" hearing after negotiators convened a call on Sunday, her attorneys said in a statement.

"If Dr. Ford testifies she must receive the support Anita Hill was never afforded", CLUW President Elise Bryant said, referring to the 1991 Judiciary Committee mistreatment of Hill when she presented sexual harassment allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

According to Ramirez's recollection, Kavanaugh thrust his genitalia in her face causing her to touch it as she pushed it away. All Davis had to go on at this point was The New Yorker article. "The article reports that Democratic staff were aware of these allegations, but they never informed Republican staff".
