Kavanaugh denied her allegation, as well as accusations made by two other women, and accused Democrats of a political "hit".

Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC, said Sunday that testimony would be taken from Ramirez and Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, who has been named by two of three women who have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

P.J. Smyth, identified by Ford as being at the gathering of teenagers where the alleged assault occurred, was interviewed and again denied knowledge of the gathering or of improper conduct by his high school friend Kavanaugh, Smyth's lawyers said.

The Arizona sex crimes prosecutor who questioned Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has concluded that no reasonable prosecutor would bring a case against the U.S. Supreme Court nominee based on the evidence presented at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday. He told The New York Times that he "never, ever saw Brett Kavanaugh black out" from drinking and "never, ever saw him act inappropriately toward any woman in the 35 years that I've known him".

It was also not clear whether the FBI would investigate a series of allegations made by a third woman, Julie Swetnick, who has said that she witnessed a severely drunken Kavanaugh mistreat women at parties in high school and that he was present at parties where high school boys gang-raped teenage girls.

Ludington said in his statement that he witnessed Kavanaugh throw a beer in a man's face once for making a semi-hostile remark, "starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail".

Judge, a recovering alcoholic, called the allegations "so freaky that, even while suffering from my addiction, I would remember actions so outlandish".

The peace prize will be announced on Friday, and the economics prize will wrap up the Nobel season on Monday, October 8. Meanwhile, the fact that the literature prize will not be handed over this year has grabbed several headlines.

"I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion", he tweeted Saturday.

"I think the press has treated me unbelievably unfairly", he said, saying he hoped they would do better once he won the election.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway delivered a similar message Sunday, repeating that the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".

Flake single-handedly delayed Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings last week by insisting on an FBI investigation.

Although the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday approved Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, it was conditional on a new inquiry into what it said were the "credible allegations" facing him.

Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegations, but the Senate directed the FBI to investigate them for up to a week.

"My White House will do whatever the senators want", Trump said in response to questions at a news conference called to announce the updated trade deal with Canada. Flake on Friday joined Democrats in calling for an FBI investigation, forcing a delay of the full Senate vote.

On Monday, Collins said she is "confident that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews" when asked if the senator is satisfied with the scope of the inquiry.

The senator described Kavanaugh's response as "belligerent, aggressive, [and] angry", and noted that it made him wonder about Kavanaugh's suitability for the high court. Then she revealed it, then she says, oh, we want more time.

Archila, co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, told NPR she had chose to tell her story of abuse a few days prior to the interaction in the elevator with Flake.

She alleges that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were both students at Yale.

"Don't do that", he told another reporter who tried to ask about Kavanaugh before he was done speaking about trade.
