GOP senators expect Kavanaugh FBI probe results soon

Murkowski said that Trump's remarks were "wholly inappropriate, and in my view unacceptable". But Democrats accused the administration of restricting the probe behind the scenes.

Three wavering Republican senators have lambasted Trump for going after Christine Blasey Ford. Judge, Smyth and Keyser say they don't recall the incident described by Ford.

Senator Flake was instrumental last week in getting Mr Trump to order an FBI investigation into the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh, after he was confronted in a lift by victims of sexual assault.

Trump drew laughs from supporters at a rally Tuesday night with his rendition of how Ford answered questions at last week's hearing.

Appearing before the committee last week, Ford, a research psychologist in northern California, drew on her own expertise to explain how the brain processed traumatic memories.

Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Chris Coons did not sign the letter.

Senators are not meant to reveal what the Federal Bureau of Investigation says, but it remains to be seen whether that secrecy will hold.

"I remember when the nuclear option happened in, like, 2013, and it was worse than this", said Corker, who's set to retire later this year.

"With all of that you can not say that we've done anything but be respectful, and I do".

Christine Blasey Ford testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, on September 27, 2018.

To guard the potentially sensitive information contained in the report, it'll be kept in a secure room. "The American people are sick of the display that's been put on here in the United States Senate in the guise of a confirmation process". Other Republicans have voiced similar concern.

Recent polls show a majority of women think the Senate should not confirm Kavanaugh.

At a political rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford's testimony about the alleged assault in Maryland in 1982 when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17.

Several people with information related to the allegations against Kavanaugh have said they have tried in vain to speak with the FBI, which is due to wrap up its investigation this week.

Republicans called the Democrats' letter "baseless innuendo". 'I don't know. I don't know.

The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn, said the report could be given to senators as soon as Wednesday.

Republican leaders and White House officials said the strict limitations on who would see the results are standard practice for background checks on nominees for senior roles.

Others interviewed include Mark Judge, who Ford has said was in the bedroom where, she says, a drunken Kavanaugh sexually attacked her at a 1982 high school gathering.

Also interviewed was Tim Gaudette, a high school classmate of Kavanaugh. But it raises questions about how such words will affect five senators - all moderates - whose votes on Kavanaugh will be decisive. Either way, the testimony given by both Kavanaugh and Ford might have already made a permanent impact.

He said "Debbie's story was believable and that Brett was frequently, incoherently drunk".

He reiterated his previous statement that Kavanaugh "was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk".

The president seemed to suggest she did not know on what floor of the property the alleged attack had occurred, but Prof Ford told senators she remembered being pushed into a bedroom on the upstairs level. Among all voters, however, 48 percent said that the Senate should reject him, while 42 percent want him confirmed.
