From there, she claims she was pushed into a bedroom and on top of a bed, where she said Kavanaugh attacked her, groping her and trying to pull off her clothes and a one-piece bathing suit, all while holding his hand over her mouth so she couldn't scream.

At one point, she said, [Kavanaugh's friend Mike] Judge jumped on top of them, and she tried unsuccessfully to wriggle free.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein had earlier claimed she was in possession of the woman's letter, but refused to name the accuser or provide details.

Doug Jones predicted on Sunday that Brett Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court would move forward following an anonymous accusation of sexual misconduct from his high school days. Both have come under great pressure from pro-choice campaigners who fear that Kavanaugh would attempt to overturn the Roe v Wade 1973 decision that legalised abortion.

A father of two young girls, Kavanaugh might decide to spare his family what inevitably will be a few weeks of scrutiny and discussion about Ford's charges.

He was echoing Democratic senators' contentions that Kavanaugh was not truthful at times while under oath before the Judiciary Committee. His office did not immediately respond on Sunday to a request for comment.

Kavanaugh has denied the accusations.

Democrats fighting the nomination say that could turn the court away from guaranteed abortion rights, against programs that benefit disadvantaged minorities, and for greater presidential immunity from the law.

"It's a very serious allegation".

Here's what you need to know.

ABC News has reached out to Debra Katz, a lawyer identified by Buzzfeed as counsel to the woman who has come forward with the allegation but received no response.

"It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July".
