They said the smaller numbers were not a concessions to her, but rather a result of the committee meeting in its usual smaller room, rather than the large ceremonial hearing room that was used for the four days of hearings with Judge Kavanaugh earlier this month.
Speaking to reporters at the United Nations Wednesday, Trump says Senate Republicans "could not be nicer" in their treatment of the woman who claims Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school. In a sworn statement prepared by Avenatti and submitted to committee, Swetnick said that Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party where she was drugged and "gang raped". Kavanaugh has denied that allegation as well. The FBI must investigate this and all other reports. "When I see it, I view it differently than someone sitting home watching television where they say, 'Oh, Judge Kavanaugh this and that'".
US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has dismissed a third woman's accusation against him of misconduct as "ridiculous".
He will give evidence followed by his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor.
The author of the letter said her daughter's friend was "shoved" against a wall "very aggressively and sexually" by Kavanaugh after they left a bar under the influence of alcohol.
"She said she's not the one to answer if it's time for the FBI to investigate these allegations", Borger said of Murkowski. "What I'm saying, though, is Kavanaugh is trying way to hard to convince everyone that not only did he not assault anyone, he's always been a living saint". She also did not specifically accuse Kavanaugh or Judge of raping her, or physically assaulting her in any way, in her declaration.
A spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee said lawyers for the panel were reviewing the declaration submitted by Swetnick, who said she has worked extensively for the federal government including the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service. "Now, it's possible I'll hear that and say, "Hey, I'm changing my mind", Trump said.
President Trump criticizes second Kavanaugh accuser.
Democrats also said they have had no coordination with Blasey and her team, while Kavanaugh's confirmation is being handled by the White House, which is in close touch with Republicans on Capitol Hill.
Kavanaugh said in an interview earlier this week with Fox News that he went to an all-boys Catholic high school where he focused on academics, and athletics.
On that day, Koegler said Ford revealed to him in an email that the person who had assaulted her in high school was President Donald Trump's "favorite for SCOTUS".
But who is Mr Kavanaugh?
Supreme Court appointments must be confirmed by the Senate. If the Kavanaugh nomination fails because of the accusations made against him by Christine Blasey Ford and others, America's system of politics, indeed its everyday social relations, will be conducted in the future on the Kavanaugh Standard. The network reports that Senate Judiciary Committee investigators placed a call to Kavanaugh about the accusations on September 25 and he denied the encounter.
She said she saw Mr Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" at the parties.
Planned Parenthood also called for an FBI investigation into Swetnick's claims, as well as those of Deborah Ramirez and Ford, the first woman to accuse Kavanaugh of assault.
"There's nothing like this in history to compare it to, so even scholars of public opinion and the court would be speculating as wildly as anyone" if they were to forecast the long-term damage that a Kavanaugh nomination could have on the court, Hall said.
