US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has appeared on US television with his wife Ashley, denying historical sexual assault allegations made against him.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says he is deeply suspicious about the veracity of the claims.
A woman who was with Kavanaugh at a high school party in 1982 claims she was sexually assaulted by him while another allegation involves a second woman who claims when he was an undergraduate lawyer he exposed himself her.
“All I’m asking for is a fair process.” Kavanaugh said.
Judge Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all allegations.
Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti has meantime dismissed a rumour that he had been duped by a 4Chan user with fake allegations about Judge Kavanaugh.
On Thursday, the nominee will answer questions before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Senator Bernardi has told Sky News the fact these claims have only recently surfaced is a clear indication they are politically motivated.
