Amid the uproar, Republicans continued to express anger Monday that Ford's allegations did not surface until after Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. The official said Kavanaugh has been coming to the White House "often" for meetings during the confirmation process.
The fact that Feinstein sat on Ford's letter about the alleged assault hasn't helped.
Ford said she will participate in any proceedings she is invited to participate in.
Noting that the accusation dates back 36 years to when Kavanaugh was in high school, McConnell said on the Senate floor that Democrats unveiled it "at the last minute in an irregular manner". During all that time, "they did not raise it", he said in a Senate floor speech.
The judge was seen arriving at the White House on Monday morning but there was no immediate explanation of the reason for his visit.
Mr Kavanaugh, 53, has released a statement calling the allegation against him "completely false".
Also Monday, two of Kavanaugh's former girlfriends issued statements vouching for his character.
Mr. Trump called Kavanaugh "one of the finest people" anyone has ever known in response to reporters' question about him.
"Never even had a little blemish on his record", Mr. Trump said.
The Supreme Court justices
Julie DeVol said she didn't really anticipate the letter would provoke such intense interest, though she sensed Kavanaugh's critics "would do anything" to delay his confirmation vote. "If it takes a little delay it'll take a little delay". I'd like everybody to be very happy. "An outstanding judge. Respected by everybody", the president said. "This woman will be heard". Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC, both members of the Judiciary Committee, said they wanted to hear what Ford has to say before making a decision on confirming Kavanaugh. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., before Thursday's scheduled vote.
It's unclear whether phone interviews would be sufficient to address questions from some of Grassley's GOP colleagues. Sen.
GOP leaders had been aiming for a final Senate vote to confirm the judge next week, but that schedule is imperiled. She was anxious that he "might inadvertently kill me".
It is the first of these items that, at least for me, is by far the most troubling. "His nomination should be put on hold until those hearing are complete".
"I agree with Sen. We need to delay the vote", Leahy said. Ford has claimed that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in college. Ford came forward as the author of the letter in an interview with the Washington Post published Sunday after details of her allegations were reported elsewhere. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, two moderates who have yet to announce their positions on Kavanaugh and aren't on the Judiciary Committee.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein said in a statement Monday afternoon that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should handle the matter, not Judiciary Committee staff. But faced with a growing #MeToo movement, they are also sensitive about appearances.
By comparison, the current committee has 11 Republicans, all men, and 10 Democrats, four of whom are women.
Van Hollen, in a written statement, called her allegations "serious and credible". Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs. "Around the same time", the Post said, Ford contacted her member of Congress, California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo.
"This is not a politically motivated action", she said. "It was something that she struggled with mightily".
