President Donald Trump on Wednesday said it would be "unfortunate" if the woman who has accused his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault did not testify before a US Senate committee, as he stepped up his defense of the conservative federal appeals court judge.

Hatch, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, also again attacked Democrats for waiting until the most "politically damaging" moment to reveal Christine Blasey Ford's allegations, saying it "reeks of opportunism".

On Tuesday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) joined a choir of other irresponsible liberals by insinuating sinister actions by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during his high school years based off a 17-second long clip she posted of the judge making a commonly used joke back in 2015. They're very likely putting the pressure on and promising her the sun, moon and the stars, in exchange for using her as a political prop in a last ditch effort to sink Kavanaugh's nomination, and provide momentum into the midterm elections.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who is on the judiciary committee, said Republicans are "naturally" concerned about the optics of having only Republican men question Ford "because there's always a lot of prejudice in these matters". "Why did they wait until everything was finished and then bring it up?" While Ford's lawyers said she is willing to testify publicly about the incident, they told the Committee on Tuesday that Ford wants the FBI to investigate the allegation first.

In a bombshell interview with The Washington Post on Sunday, Ford described how she was at a teenage party with Kavanaugh in 1982, when she was at Holton Arms and he went to Georgetown Prep.

"It is both extremely disturbing and a grave insult to women in ME and across the country that Senator Collins is buying into the Trump tactic of undermining survivors and trying to bully Dr. Blasey Ford", said Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL, in a statement.

Gabriel Malor, a contributor to The Federalist, also noted Warren's lie: "As we know, Warren is very comfortable misleading people".

"This is about more than one nomination to the Supreme Court, more than one judicial nomination", said Coons.

After initially saying through a lawyer Monday that she was willing to appear, Ford has since said she first wants a full FBI investigation of her accusation.

Said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, a key Republican on the panel, said, "We should proceed as planned".

Wednesday's rule, after the GOP gave Ford a chance to be heard: Christine Blasey Ford must not participate in this sham.

It was not clear where and when Ford had identified Smyth as being present at the party.

Kavanaugh spent hours Tuesday in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, part of the White House complex. "This incident did happen". Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Judiciary Committee Democrat.

"Nor is it tasked with investigating a matter simply because the Committee deems it important", the senator wrote.
