"The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", he said in a statement published by the magazine.
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.
The hearing had been in doubt amid a week of back-and-forth tussling between Senate Republicans and Ford's legal team, who disagreed on the ideal timing of the hearing, as well as who should testify first and whether outside lawyers should be allowed to ask questions. Judiciary Committee Democrats said that Feinstein should send Ford's letter, with her name redacted, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Democrats called for the FBI to investigate Ms Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it is unnecessary. "I will support her steadfast bravery". "Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person and I'm with him all the way".
Originally the White House had hoped to pick up votes from a few Democratic senators running for re-election in states Trump won in 2016.
Hollywood stars and women from around the USA, some being key members of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, have also shown their support for Ford.
A Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says Brett Kavanaugh's accuser deserves a fair hearing to determine whether her allegations of sexual assault are "serious" enough to vote down his Supreme Court nomination.
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein received a letter from Professor Christine Blasey Ford on July 30, which outlined her assertion that, at a high school party in the 1980s, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her, and put his hands over her mouth. "Since then, all four of these individuals have provided statements to the Senate Judiciary Committee denying any knowledge of the incident or even having attended such a party".
An aide to one of the senators investigating the story said, the "allegations seem credible and we're taking them very seriously".
Deborah Ramirez, a Yale university classmate of the judge, told the New Yorker that Mr Kavanaugh had exposed his genitals at a dormitory party. Brett Kavanaugh was unfit to serve before these latest allegations, now there can be no question that he must not serve on the highest court in the land.
The president showed no initial sign of wanting to walk away from Kavanaugh and expressed frustration that the confirmation process has not moved more quickly. Ramirez, who was raised a devout Catholic in CT, said that she was shaken. The New Yorker reports it reached out to Ramirez after learning of the alleged incident, and that she responded after six days of inventorying her memories and speaking with her lawyer. It has also forced the White House and Senate Republicans onto the defensive and fueled calls from Democrats to postpone further action on his confirmation.
Kavanaugh denied the accusation in a statement to The New Yorker yesterday that read: "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen".
Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway says sexual misconduct allegations by two women against Brett Kavanaugh sound like "a vast left-wing conspiracy". "Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this". In addition to sidelining Ford's request for anonymity, Feinstein's delay was also unfair to Kavanaugh, the committee staff wrote.
