FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.
"I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me", she said. I don't want to say what he would have done.
She said Mr Kavanaugh was "very inebriated", and feared he was "accidentally going to kill me".
"If he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences", Prof Ludington said.
When asked about Judge Kavanaugh's drinking habits during a news conference on Monday, Mr Trump said he thought his answers during the hearing were "excellent".
Mr Kavanaugh denies the allegation.
Mr Trump said the parameters of the investigation would be up to the Republican-led Senate. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.
What will the FBI investigation do? Until Flake is satisfied that there's no "there" there with Kavanaugh and sexual assault, he's a no.
Russian Federation to Supply New S-300 Missile Defense System to Syria
But Moscow insisted the Syrians had no capability to determine which plane was friend or foe with their outdated Soviet system. Shoigu said the supply of S-300s to Syria will "calm down some hotheads" whose actions "pose a threat to our troops".
Trump called Kavanaugh's treatment unfair, days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a Senate-requested probe into allegations by three women that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually abused them or engaged in sexual misconduct while they were students in the 1980s.
The most senior Democrat on the Senate's Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, has sent a letter urging the White House to release the written directive sent by President Trump to the FBI launching the investigation.
President Donald Trump says he has "a very open mind" as the FBI probes allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, adding "I'm waiting just like you" for the results of the investigation.
The FBI has initiated its investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh at the direction of the White House after Flake last week - with the backing of Murkowski and Collins - called for a delay in consideration of the nomination so that the FBI could undertake a review. "I've had discussions, many yesterday with my colleagues, with the White House counsel's office".
If confirmed, Kavanaugh would deepen conservative control of the Supreme Court.
Trump on Friday had ordered the new FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, as the Senate delayed a final vote on his confirmation as the key ninth member of the Supreme Court. "There's never been anybody that's been looked at like Judge Kavanaugh".
The scope of the investigation appeared to exclude Julie Swetnick, who submitted an affidavit last week alleging that she witnessed Kavanaugh at parties in high school where women were drugged and assaulted.
New York Times: "Details of F.B.I.'s Kavanaugh Inquiry Show Its Restricted Range" - "President Trump said on Saturday that the F.B.I. will have "free rein" to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, but the emerging contours of the inquiry showed its limited scope".
"They were clearly passionate and determined that I hear them", said Flake about the two activists, Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher, who accosted Flake in an elevator just after he announced that he would vote for Judge Kavanaugh. Then, after powering the nomination through the panel on Friday, Republicans agreed to put off a floor vote while the FBI investigated.
