Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa, shown above right, next to Kavanaugh) responded to the controversy by stressing that Ford deserves to be heard while also questioning the timing and the way in which the information was revealed.

Committee Democrats, already fiercely opposed to the nominee, wrote a letter to Mr Grassley objecting to the planned format of the hearing, which was announced yesterday, including having just Mr Kavanaugh and Ms Ford as witnesses. And in recognition of how hard it can be to discuss allegations of this kind in public, I have also offered her the choice of testifying in either a public or closed session of the hearing.

Today, when asked whether he would ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation to open its background check on Mr Kavanaugh, Mr Trump said: "I don't think the Federal Bureau of Investigation really need to be involved because they don't want to be involved".

Ford's attorneys say she wants the FBI to investigate her allegation before she testifies.

Debra Katz, Ford's lawyer, relayed the response to top staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, seeking to negotiate the conditions under which Ford would be prepared to testify later next week.

"W$3 e stand by our comments the night Judge Kavanaugh was nominated", Bush wrote. "I think he's on track, very much on track", Mr Trump said.

Attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when the two were in high school in the 1980s, wants "a full investigation by law enforcement officials".

"He's sailing to confirmation, but maybe not - there's a problem here - she needs to be heard, and the Republican said let's hear from her", he added.

"Asking her to come forward in four or five days and sit before the Judiciary Committee on national TV is not a fair process", Banks said.

Flake also met with leadership at around noon on Tuesday to talk about a possible delay in the nomination process in order to schedule a hearing so Ford could tell her story.

Mr Kavanaugh issued a fresh denial of the claims in a statement released by the White House last Monday.

Kavanaugh's nomination has been roiled by an accusation from Christine Blasey Ford that he pinned her down on a bed and tried to remove her clothing at a party in high school 36 years ago. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) has offered Ford the chance to testify in a closed hearing. "It starts at age 18 and comes forward". Ford has listed a set of requirements for her to testify.

The New York Times editorial board called on Monday for the confirmation to be delayed "however long it takes", pending further investigation.

Grassley said Judge has not been asked to testify.

The call for an FBI investigation was joined by at least to Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
