Read: Brett Kavanaugh's opening statement for Senate hearing

Despite bitter, partisan accusations between Republicans and Democrats in the run-up to Thursday's hearing, Ford likely will face a less confrontational Senate Judiciary Committee in the era of the #MeToo campaign, which has raised Americans' awareness about sexual assault. CBSN will provide additional coverage with Vladimir Duthiers and Anne Marie Green starting at 9 a.m. ET and with Tanya Rivero following the end of the hearings and into the evening.

On Wednesday a third woman came forward with explosive allegations, saying she witnessed sexually abusive behaviour by Brett Kavanaugh when he was a teenager.

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations. "We sometimes seem intent on stripping people of their humanity so that we might more easily disregard or defame them and put them through the grinder that our politics requires".

Look for whether Democrats succeed in raising the two other women accusing Kavanaugh of misconduct.

Ford said earlier this month that Kavanaugh held her down on a bed during a high school party decades ago. Dianne Feinstein of California, asked Ford how she could be sure that Kavanaugh was the attacker, Ford said, "The same way I'm sure I'm talking to you right now". "And no, I've never done anything like that", Kavanaugh said.

But he also described Judge Kavanaugh as a "great gentleman" and said he was sceptical of the claims against him, based on his personal experience of being the target of "false statements" made by various women in the past.

If Brett Kavanaugh is denied a seat on the Supreme Court because of a crime never proven, but nonetheless chiseled in stone by Trump's political opponents, an appalling new precedent will have been set in motion and our entire political system will, henceforth, be at the mercy of progressive mob justice.

While Swetnick does not accuse Kavanaugh of assaulting her, she does allege that he and his friend Mark Judge were present at a party when she was gang raped by a series of boys after her drink was spiked.

At Ford's request, Kavanaugh will not be in the room when she testifies. In these notes, it says "four boys were involved, a discrepancy Ford says was an error on the therapist's part". Lavrentiy Beria, the unwaveringly loyal chief of Stalin's secret police for 13 years, once said: "Show me the man and I'll show you the crime".

She wrote she witnessed Kavanaugh "engage in abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls, including pressing girls against him without their consent, grinding against girls and attempting to remove or shift girls' clothing to expose private body parts".

Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, told the New Yorker magazine that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were both first-year students. Kavanaugh said he doesn't know Swetnick and "this never happened". "When they left the bar under the influence of alcohol".

Fox News Chief White House correspondent John Roberts tweeted that he received a statement from Kavanaugh who said Swetnick's allegations are "ridiculous and from the Twighlight Zone". He made the comments at a news conference in NY a day before Judge Brett Kavanaugh was set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee amid multiple accusations of sexual misconduct. "The letter was shared with both Republican staff and Democrat staff", the statement said.
