Denouncing his accusers for launching "smears, pure and simple", Brett Kavanaugh said Monday he'll continue fighting for Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court, even as Republicans battled to prevent a second woman's assertion of a long-ago sexual assault from derailing his nomination.
Beyond this, the Times reports that Kavanaugh does not plan on questioning Ford's credibility or her account that she was assaulted, but will maintain he was not the one who committed the alleged assault.
Deborah Ramirez alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party while they were freshmen students at Yale University.
The latest allegation comes as Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her while they were both in high school, and Kavanaugh are expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. "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".
Kavanaugh definitively stated, "We're talking about an allegation of sexual assault".
Democrats called for the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it is unnecessary.
Ford's lawyers said that, in a Sunday morning call with committee staff members, they agreed to the hearing even though the committee refused to subpoena Mark Judge, a Kavanaugh friend who Ford said witnessed the attack, as well as others she said were present.
The developments could also determine the fate of Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation, which hangs on the votes of a handful of senators.
"It is not accurate to say that those who knew him at the time dispute this", Farrow said on ABC.

Yet, even with Cech enduring an indifferent start to the season under Emery, the 36-year-old has managed to retain his place. The Hale End Academy product, who set up the opening goal scored by the Gunners , was given the highest marks by Football.
The other male classmate Ramirez said was involved in the incident told the magazine, "I have zero recollection". As she said point blank: "'I don't want to ruin anyone's life'".
The White House and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied an allegation Sunday made by a second woman accusing him of inappropriate sexual behavior.
Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley Kavanaugh answer questions during a FOX News interview with Martha MacCallum, Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, in Washington, about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee.
The report prompted Democratic Sen.
Grassley's spokesman, Taylor Foy, accused Senate Democrats of withholding information on the latest allegation and of seeking a "political takedown" of Kavanaugh. So far, no Republican senators have said they would vote against Kavanaugh. "In the spring and summer of 2009, she assisted the White House in the successful confirmation effort for President Obama's first nominee to the Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor".
Ford's lawyers said it was still unclear as of Sunday who will ask questions, as Republicans were trying to hire an outside female counsel for the role.
Ramirez's accustions were followed in quick order by claims by lawyer Michael Avenatti that Kavanaugh was involved in house parties that involved the gang rape of women.
Until recently, Trump had remained uncharacteristically silent on the accusations against Kavanaugh, and had refused to publicly address Ford by name. The magazine said numerous people they contacted did not respond to interview requests, others declined to comment or said they did not attend or remember the party.
