What The FBI Is Looking For In Its Brett Kavanaugh Investigation

Without referencing the senator's name, the Senate Majority Leader lamented how organized far-left protesters recently drove Sen.

"All of us need to keep in mind there's a few people that are on the fence right now". In a rare moment of randomness in what's been a deadly serious process, the normally meticulous lawmaker's cell phone emitted a ringtone during part of his remarks.

Members will be permitted to view the report in a secure room in the US Capitol and be briefed by staff, but the expectation is they will not be provided copies of the document. However, senators would be doing so at a contentious time.

Senator Susan Collins surrounded by reporters asking her questions about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"[McConnell] said we would vote this week", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) told reporters, Fox News reported.

Democratic Senator Kamala Harris, who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee, tweeted that Ford "deserves better".

"They just want to get the basic facts. You're not helping", Trump ally Sen.

He went on to say: "A man's life is in tatters". Now the New York Department of Taxation is "vigorously pursuing" a review of the Trumps' activities. The committee stands by its statement, which is completely truthful.

Meanwhile, President Trump, who had been somewhat restrained in his comments about all this, shifted course Tuesday at a political rally in MS, where he mocked Ford. "There's no time or place, but particularly, to discuss something so sensitive at a political rally is just wrong", Flake told CNN's Raju.

Two Democrats, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, are yet to declare their intentions.

Trump: "How many years ago was?"

"I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", Trump said.

Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week regarding sexual assault allegations.

Three women came forward last month to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual harassment or assault during his high school and college years.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday echoed the president's newly aggressive approach.

And speaking at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said he "didn't particularly like" the president's remarks, adding, "I would tell him, knock it off".

President Donald Trump kisses Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, after introducing her at a rally.

Kavanaugh's allies say Democrats are raising issues of character because they know the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not be able to prove allegations of sexual assault.

But the undecided senators - Flake, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, all Republicans; and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, both Democrats - are keeping an open mind. But background checks do not traditionally contain investigators' conclusions about who they believe is credible.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said he asked during a lunch meeting with other Republican senators if multiple copies could be made available, but it was unclear whether GOP leaders agreed to the request.

But Sanders argued that Trump was simply pointing out gaps in Ford's testimony that had also been noted by sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was hired by Republican senators to question her during the hearing.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fuelled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.
