WASHINGTON (AP) — Attorneys for Deborah Ramirez are arguing with Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee over how to bring forward her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Ramirez lawyer John Clune tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that Republican staff members were a no-show on a scheduled conference call to discuss her allegations.

Ramirez has told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when they were students at Yale. Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

Republicans for the committee say they've asked for evidence from Ramirez to back up her claims. They say none has been provided.

The committee chairman, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, says that if Ramirez submits testimony and evidence, "we can decide how to proceed."
