Watch Lindsey Graham Get Booed for Defending Brett Kavanaugh

Lawyer: FBI has completed Mark Judge interview Trump: 'This is a very scary time for young men in America'

Sanders defended Trump's criticism of Ford's accusations and blasted the Democrats for not finding a way to confidentially share Ford's initial allegation to Republicans on the Judiciary Committee.

Following Ford's testimony last Thursday, Trump called her a "very credible witness".

Christine Blasey Ford arrives for a Senate judiciary committee hearing in Washington.

Five days after the FBI began its investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the sexual assault allegations made against him by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the probe is nearing its end. Jeff Flake of Arizona said on NBC's Today show that the remarks were "kind of appalling".

"His comments were just plain wrong", Maine's Susan Collins said Wednesday.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, fired back in remarks after McConnell, saying the weeklong delay to the let the FBI investigate came at the request of Republican senators who weren't prepared to vote for Kavanaugh's nomination.

"There will be plenty of time for members to review and be briefed on the supplemental material" before Friday's vote, McConnell said to the almost empty chamber.

He went on to say: "A man's life is in tatters".

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., a Judiciary Committee member, said it would be ideal to make public as much information as possible, allowing for redactions of private or compromising information.

President Donald Trump is pictured gesturing as he speaks during a rally in Southaven, Mississippi. That testimony which she gave - and I have now watched it five times - was the testimony of an adolescent.

But at his rally on Tuesday, the president dismissively imitated Ford's appearance on Capitol Hill in an effort to cast doubt on her testimony. 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.

In separate interviews, Senators Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - all considered swing votes on Kavanaugh - took issue with comments the president made the night before at a political rally in MS that drew laughs from his supporters.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway made a similar argument earlier in the day, saying that Ford had "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president" and that Trump was "pointing out factual inconsistencies".

I told Saudi king he wouldn't last two weeks without USA support
He further added, "we defend many of these nations for nothing, and then they take advantage of us by giving us high oil prices". But despite the Trump's comment, his administration has kept a close relationship with the Saudi kingdom.

Jose Mourinho fires back at Paul Scholes after 'embarrassing' tirade
On his defenders' performance, the Portuguese said: "They tried, they raised the level of their intensity". We don't have the technical quality to build from the back.

Canada, US and Mexico's make 'historic transaction' with new trade agreement
Trudeau said he knows there is anxiety for dairy producers but also implied things could have been a lot worse. Both nations run an agricultural trade surplus with the U.S.

"I don't like what the president said last night".

Women were far more likely than men in the poll to oppose Kavanaugh, 55 percent to 40 percent. "Vote him up or down".

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

Senators are preparing to vote on Kavanaugh as soon as late this week - and it's expected to be close.

Also on the ballot is Senator Deb Fischer of Nebraska, who is campaigning for a second term.

The fast-moving story around embattled Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh continues to unfold. It's unclear whether there will be a public summary of the information, or whether the White House would be allowed to release portions of the report.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed again on Tuesday to vote on the nomination by the end of the week, insisting that the results of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry be kept private, for senators only to see.

The FBI has finished an interview with Chris Garrett, a high school friend of Kavanaugh.

The FBI has interviewed several people, including three who Ford has said were at a 1982 high school gathering in suburban Maryland where she says Kavanaugh sexually molested her in a locked bedroom.

Two other women also accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Smyth and Leland Keyser.

Graham accused Democrats of stalling and doing anything they possibly could to keep the Supreme Court seat vacant in case they retake the White House in 2020.

Mr Kavanaugh has claimed the assault allegations are part of a conspiracy of revenge orchestrated by Hillary and Bill Clinton.
