Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is facing legal issues in court about sexually assaulting Christine Ford and now more allegations about sexual misconduct are rising.

"There's a chance this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate", Trump said Monday, after leaving United Nations Headquarters in NY, which is holding a General Assembly meeting this week.

In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and '84.

The new claim came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed to a hearing on Thursday after almost a week of uncertainty over whether Christine Blasey Ford would appear to testify about her earlier claim against Mr Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has denied both allegations and plans to testify in a Thursday hearing on Capitol Hill to defend his name.

The controversy over Kavanaugh is unfolding just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Trump's fellow Republicans. The women making the allegations, Trump said, "were coming out of the woodwork and, he said, "in my opinion totally political".

Kavanaugh also told MacCallum he's resolute about not letting "false accusations" force him to withdraw. Despite revelations of Dr. Ford's identity, the Ranking Member and Dr. Ford's attorneys to date still have not publicly released a copy of the original version of the letter or shared it more broadly than the 21 members and senior staff of the Judiciary Committee.

A White House spokeswoman adds in a second statement that the allegation is "designed to tear down a good man". The magazine says she described the incident in an interview after being contacted by the magazine.

A lawyer for Judge told the committee he has "no memory of the alleged incident" and has never seen Kavanaugh act the way Ford describes. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, to immediately postpone confirmation proceedings until the FBI could investigate.

According to Ramirez's recollection, Kavanaugh thrust his genitalia in her face causing her to touch it as she pushed it away.

Gronkowski received a contract extension with a chance to make between $3.3-just over $13 million this season based on incentives. Ultimately, he made a decision to return to the Patriots, who later restructured his contract in an act of good will.

Grassley's spokesman, Taylor Foy, accused Senate Democrats of withholding information on the latest allegation and of seeking a "political takedown" of Kavanaugh.

Earlier on Monday, the White House adviser Kellyanne Conway called the claims a "vast leftwing conspiracy" and said Kavanaugh should not have to pay for decades of "pent-up" demands by women for a cultural reckoning on sexual misconduct.

His confirmation by the Republican-controlled Senate seemed assured until Ford said in a Washington Post interview that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a house party when they were in high school in Maryland and she was 15 years old.

"This fine nominee to the Supreme Court will receive a vote in this Senate in the near future", McConnell said on the Senate floor.

Trump has not tweeted criticism of Ford since Friday. All three people have denied that they witnessed or remembered the incident Ford recalls.
