According to a committee aide, in an email to Avenatti on Wednesday, Republican committee staff said that "yesterday committee investigators interviewed Judge Kavanaugh again, under penalty of felony".
During a Senate hearing on Thursday, one accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, will testify about an alleged 1982 incident in which she said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both of them were in high school.
The new claim, which is being investigated by the Senate, alleges Judge Kavanaugh committed serious sexual assault in high school.
Michael Avenatti, lawyer to Stormy Daniels, has revealed the name of his client who has now come forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Meanwhile, the nominee himself has launched a highly unusual public relations blitz, appearing on Fox News with his wife and issuing denials in less than lawyerly terms, saying of one accusation: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone". Democrats have no idea how it will work when they have only five minutes each to try to get to the bottom of what Kavanaugh did or didn't do. She said in her statement that there are two witnesses who can attest to her account, but she has not identified them publicly.
Judge Kavanaugh has yet to respond formally to this specific allegation. "Nor did we ever observe Brett engaging in any conduct resembling that described in Ms. Swetnick's declaration", the letter says, calling her accusations "nonsense".
In his declaration, Koegler said he met the Fords while coaching their son's baseball team more than five years ago.
A call with senators was scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Tuesday, but Clune says by the time the call happened only Democrats were on the line. "I am terrified", she adds. She described gang rapes that she said occurred in which boys would line up to rape incapacitated girls.
Swetnick also claims in the statement she witnessed "efforts by Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh and others to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys".
Twenty-six percent of those polled sided with Kavanaugh and 42 percent said they were not sure who was telling the truth about the alleged incident.
But even if the committee approves Kavanaugh on Friday, its investigation would continue, Sen.
"Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired", Kavanaugh will say, according to his statement, released on Wednesday. Judge Kavanaugh understood that he testified under penalty of felony, subject to up to 5 years of imprisonment.
He will give evidence followed by his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor.
Kavanaugh presents Trump with a political dilemma.
Asked by Acosta why he has stood by so many men who have been accused of sexual misconduct, rather than woman accusers, Trump said, "I've known them for a long time, a lot of these people".
