The Republican-majority Senate Judiciary Committee is set to vote on Friday on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the US Supreme Court.
Earlier, Kavanaugh was nominated to America's highest judiciary position by President Donald Trump, who endorsed his as a trustworthy professional.
It is believed, that if appointed to the Supreme court's lifetime position, Bret Kavanaugh would secure a Republican domination in one of country's most powerful institutions, which would significantly strengthen President's influence in the Judiciary and provide the GOP with more leverages.
The nomination was followed by accusations of sexual assault against the nominee. Two women, Christine Blasey and Ford Deborah Ramirez presented allegations of sexual misconduct that supposedly had happened at different point in past.
President Donald Trump ramped up his criticism of Ford and Ramirez calling the allegations against Kavanaugh "a con game being played by Democrats".
The committee vote is set to take place the day after Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford are to give evidence about her allegation he sexually assaulted her when they were teens.
