In his own testimony, Kavanaugh denied the accusation, as well as allegations by two other women of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
His opening statement suggested the inquiry into Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation was motivated by Democratic bitterness over the 2016 election and his role in the investigation of former US president Bill Clinton.
Some Republican senators had made clear to the White House through phone calls that a severely limited investigation into Kavanaugh was not what they had in mind when they launched the probe on Friday.
Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said that when Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he abandoned any pretense of being an impartial jurist and revealed that he bears "bitter partisan resentments". The FBI did not immediately respond to request for comment. She faces Republican Chris McDaniel and Democrats Mike Espy and Tobey Bernard Bartee in next month's special election for the remainder of the two-year term.
Ford alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and placed his hand over her mouth to silence her when both were teenagers in Maryland in the early 1980s. She claims a friend of Kavanaugh's, Mark Judge, was in the room and aided in the alleged assault.
A person familiar with the matter said the Federal Bureau of Investigation questioned Deborah Ramirez for more than two hours on Sunday and that she provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation with a list of more than 20 possible witnesses.
U.S. reports also say former classmates of the judge's who have stressed his heavy college drinking are not on the witness list.
"The issues of credibility and temperament are not something that happened 30 years ago; they're about Judge Kavanaugh today and how he is as a 53-year-old", Minority Leader Sen. "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building - against these last-minute allegations".
His attorney, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, wouldn't say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked.

USA media reports earlier suggested the White House wanted to restrict the inquiry into Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Judge is a former classmate of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault. "We hope that this reporting is inaccurate", Ford's attorneys wrote. The reports also suggested that the White House was limiting the list of witnesses.
The FBI has reopened a background investigation to examine allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh dating to when he was in high school and college.
Trump has rejected in recent days the notion he's "limiting" the investigation. "Whatever that means according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that".
The paper has published police reports but personal information has been redacted.
Avenatti, who has said he is considering a Democratic run for the presidency in 2020, is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who was paid to remain silent about an alleged affair with Trump.
It all started when the man, Dom Cozzolino, said Kavanaugh threw ice at him "for some unknown reason", according to a newly surfaced police report from the incident.
Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency.
"The FBI needs to be allowed to pursue all reasonable investigatory steps from the credible allegations in front of the committee", he said.
For those of us bingewatching the Trump method, this is straight out of the classic Trump playbook that goes back to the 2016 campaign. So far, no Democrat has announced support for Kavanaugh and no Republican has declared opposition to him.
