Christine Blasey FordallegesKavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party as his friend Mark Judge egged him on.
Regarding Ford's testimony, there are still unresolved procedural and logistical issues, her lawyers said, including whether the Judiciary Committee's Republican senators, who are all male, or staff attorneys would question her.
Her allegation against the conservative federal appeals court judge has endangered his confirmation by the Republican-led Senate to a lifetime job on the top U.S. court. Democrats said the latest allegation concerning Judge is even more reason why the FBI ought to reopen a background investigation into Kavanaugh's nomination.

Mr Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Mr Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the UN General Assembly. Specifically, six people who knew both Ramirez and Kavanaugh have categorically denied the accuser's claim. Kavanaugh's wife Ashley also speaks, saying that the assault charges leveled at her husband bear no relation to the man she knows.
During the almost 14-minute interview, Kavanaugh previewed the defense he is likely to put forward at Thursday's hearing, where he and Ford are scheduled to testify.
"I'm not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process", Kavanaugh said later, adding: "I'm not going anywhere".
Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat on the committee, said Sunday he believed Ford's requests have been reasonable and that she deserves a fair hearing to determine whether her allegations are serious enough to vote down Kavanaugh's nomination.
"All I'm asking for is a fair process, where I can be heard", Kavanaugh said. So far, no Republican senators have said they would vote against him.
If Kavanaugh is rejected, there are three other judges - Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman - who were widely reported to be shortlisted in the selection process. Trump broke his silence to cast doubt on Ford's story Friday in ways Republicans had been carefully trying to avoid.
