All ten of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote to President Trump Wednesday asking to postpone Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh's hearing scheduled for Thursday until the FBI investigates sexual misconduct allegations against him.

The university professor told a panel of United States senators, that she feared for her life 36 years ago as Judge Kavanaugh - then 17 - sexually assualted her.

On Thursday, she made a sign that said "Dr. Ford, we believe you", and stood outside the Dirksen Senate building with a crowd of women, listening to Ford's testimony over a megaphone.

The hearing will be the first time the world sees and hears from Ms Ford beyond the grainy photo that has appeared in the media in the 10 days since she came forward with her claims. "Senate Republican leaders are aiming to hold a full Senate floor vote on the nomination by early next week, with the hopes that he would be confirmed and sworn in as a justice soon after the high court's new term opens on Monday". Describing the alleged assault, Ford also said she anxious that Kavanaugh might "accidentally" kill her. "Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes". "I'm still on the fence about, do I believe that this was absolutely this person". But I am not watching because I can not bear the disappointment that I think will follow: "Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice", Georgetown law student Desiree Luckey, 27, said in an email. She says that in the summer of 1983, when she went to Beach Week parties with the boys of Georgetown Prep, she rarely saw private school girls.

Kavanaugh told the senators, his voice raised: "I have never done this to her or to anyone".

Brett Kavanaugh denies the incident.

Trump said this "con game" at the "highest level" could "go on forever", and claimed "it's a very risky period in our country". Kavanaugh and Ford are scheduled to testify before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Trump Stands by Kavanaugh After Latest Allegations
The developments could also determine the fate of Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation, which hangs on the votes of a handful of senators. Ford of course will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there". "We were sitting in a circle", she said.

The contrast between Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who is a couple of months older than he is, has been especially sharp. He will testify under oath later today.

Committee Republicans have brought in Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to serve as their outside counsel in an effort to depoliticize the process.

Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party more than three decades ago, took the polygraph test on August 7 in a conference room at a hotel near Baltimore/Washington International airport.

Ford was only questioned by Democrats, while Republicans on the committee left the probing up to Mitchell. "I don't know who this is and this never happened".

Speaking on Wednesday with Shannon Bream on "Fox News @ Night", Hanafin said that when he administered the polygraph exam, it consisted of just two questions: "Is any part of your statement false?" and "Did you make up any part of your statement?" Though Ford is the only accuser testifying, three women have made allegations against Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation, and he and Republican Senators reacted with outrage during his own hearing later Thursday.

Supreme Court appointments must be confirmed by the Senate, and Mr Trump's fellow Republicans control the chamber by a narrow 51-49 margin.
