At the MS rally, where Trump was promoting the candidacy of Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, Trump also turned his ire toward Julie Swetnick, who claims Kavanaugh took part in efforts at parties during high school to get girls intoxicated so that groups of boys could have sex with them. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", Trump said at a White House news conference. Flake is a key GOP vote in the confirmation battle, and while he said last week he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, he also called for an expanded FBI investigation that resulted in a one-week delay. She told CBS This Morning on Tuesday that California college professor Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh lacks corroboration. What's next? Kavanaugh teamed up with James Spader to steal Molly Ringwald's underwear and throw it into the pool where Phoebe Cates is sunbathing while John Cusack holds up a boom box over his head screaming "I want my MTV!'?"

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said Friday would be too soon.

Flake, who pushed for a delay for the FBI to investigate the assault allegations, said he was keeping an open mind on the nomination.

Sen. Joe Manchin, facing a competitive re-election this fall, said he's awaiting the Federal Bureau of Investigation report.

If Kavanaugh's accusers fail to provide "any evidence to corroborate the [sexual assault] claims and Kavanaugh says these incidents did not happen", Americans believe Kavanaugh should sit on the Supreme Court, by a margin of 57% to 43%.

Flake, meanwhile, on Tuesday said senators have to give Kavanaugh some leeway for his combative testimony las week, given the nature of the accusations against him. He has denied all the allegations against him. "That's the only thing I remember", Trump said in imitation of Ford's testimony.

Flake had initially said he would vote for Kavanaugh after last week's hearings.

"And a man's life is in tatters", Trump said. "I don't know", Trump lied. When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense". A final vote on Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court has since been delayed.

■New questions are being raised by Democrats about whether, sexual misconduct allegations aside, Kavanaugh has been truthful about his drinking, and has showed the proper temperament to be a judge on the nation's highest court.

This is "a scary time", Trump said Tuesday. "They are so in favor of Judge Kavanaugh", he said. "The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.

Schumer said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his confirmation.

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.

Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee she was "100 percent certain" it was a drunken Kavanaugh who pinned her down on a bed, groped her, tried to take off her clothes, and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams for help. They said it was "inconceivable" a probe could be completed without her input.

The senator said he is requesting the recordings because the committee has obtained a letter that "raises specific concerns" about the reliability of Ford's polygraph test.

"I do think it brings up what's at stake in this election", Wicker said. To that, Trump said it is not "acceptable" to lie to Congress.
