Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley Kavanaugh, will appear in an unusual - if not unprecedented - interview, in which they'll address the allegations of sexual misconduct the Supreme Court nominee is facing, with Fox News on Monday night.
Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh is maintaining his innocence amid two sexual misconduct allegations from his high school and college days.
In an interview on Tuesday morning, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if the panel, the Senate judiciary committee, should hear from Deborah Ramirez, a second accuser who has come forward, alleging that she was harassed by Kavanaugh when they were both at Yale.
Kavanaugh told Fox News he was not present at a party like the one described by Ford and noted that others Ford said were at the gathering had no recollection of it.
Grassley's counsel said in a note to Ford's lawyers that "the Chairman asked me to relay again that he will do everything in his power to provide a safe, comfortable and dignified forum for Dr. Ford to testify".

On the Senate floor Monday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for their ongoing antics to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation and said he will get a vote. The group says those who can't leave can post a selfie on social media with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors. What we will have is a woman who says she has suffered the "lasting impact" of an alleged sexual assault.by a man who says he has "never sexually assaulted anyone". Conway during her interview urged Ramirez to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about that accusation.
And since the standard that's being applied to Brett Kavanaugh - applied by the good NY senator herself, mind you - is that once an accusation is made, then guilt is affixed, shouldn't Gillibrand's seat be held by another about now? "First it was an anonymous allegation that I categorically and unequivocally denied", he said. Ford claims Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothing, and covered her mouth so she could not scream, during a party at Georgetown Prep. He later added that he was asking for "a fair process, where I can be heard and I can defend my integrity". "I don't know what happened".
"Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, just chose to lecture Democrats for their actions involving a Supreme Court nominee", said Baldwin. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.
He has denied both accusations. "The last minute character assassination will not succeed", Kavanaugh said and refuted a new accusation that he exposed himself to a classmate at Yale University, also in the 1980s. "As Dr. Blasey Ford has been clear since her experience was first made public, she came forward because she believes it is her civic duty to tell the truth about the sexual assault she experienced", wrote Michael Bromwich, her attorney and a former Justice Department inspector general. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, revealed the existence of an allegation against him after sitting on it for weeks.
"This is a fine man and we certainly hope he will be confirmed and quickly".
