Will the FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh find anything?

"I watched those senators on the Democrat side, and I thought it was a disgrace, partially because I know them", he said.

As of Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has completed its interview of Mark Judge, Kavanaugh's high school friend, according to Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder. He has denied all accusations.

The White House insisted it was not "micromanaging" the new one-week review of Kavanaugh's background, but some Democratic lawmakers claimed the White House was keeping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses.

Kavanaugh was scheduled to teach a three-week course called The Supreme Court Since 2005.

Like it or not the nomination and confirmation of Neil Gorsuch and now the nomination of Kavanaugh can be laid at the feet of those who either didn't vote in 2016 or voted for a third party.

"I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts". Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in Kavanaugh's favour.

Swetnick did not identify Kavanaugh or Judge as one of her attackers.

But "this case is even weaker than that", Mitchell wrote to Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford said during her testimony at a dramatic Senate hearing on Thursday that Judge was in the bedroom where the alleged assault by Kavanaugh occurred.

"We don't want to go on a witch hunt, do we?"

In response to her testimony, Mr Kavanaugh said he had never assaulted her or anyone else. He has previously sent two letters to the Senate committee indicating he does not recall events described by Ford. She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed. While saying that youthful drinking should not condemn a person for life, Ludington said he was concerned about Kavanaugh's statements under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford admitted she hasn't always been sure of when specifically the alleged attack occurred, but said that establishing Judge's time of employment at the Safeway store would narrow the timeframe.

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes.

Flake and Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.

While Democrats have said they hope to keep delaying Kavanaugh's nomination until past the mid-term elections and ultimately torpedo his chances, McConnell said on October 1 that a floor vote would, in fact, happen this week. Abusive talk, lies and red-faced emotion worked well enough to put him in the White House and seem to have inspired a Supreme Court nominee to spew conspiracy theories and distortions in the pursuit of a lifetime appointment.

Kavanaugh would replace Anthony Kennedy, who he once served as a law clerk, on the top court.

His fate now rests with a handful of wavering senators who must decide whether he is suitable to sit on the land's highest court in a vote expected later this week. Kavanaugh has also denied her accusations as well as those of two other women, while accusing Democrats of a political "hit". It's an incredibly important job, she said, to shape the minds of students destined to become Supreme Court justices, legal scholars and other leaders.

Deborah Ramirez was the second woman to come forward when she told The New Yorker that Mr Kavanaugh had exposed himself to her during a drunken party when they were freshmen in the mid 1980s.

Leaning: Collins' signal that she was comfortable Kavanaugh wouldn't overturn Roe vs. Wade appeared to be a sign that she was going to vote for him.

Swetnick, who is represented by prominent Trump critic Michael Avenatti, said in a declaration that Kavanaugh was physically abusive toward girls in high school and at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a gang rape.

A Harvard Law School spokeswoman shared a message from Manning sent to students Friday, saying these had been painful, hard times for the nation and their community, with the battle over the Supreme Court confirmation bringing into sharp focus "questions about sexual assault, fair process, fitness and character for high office, the integrity of the political process, and more".
