Despite the reported conclusion by the White House, Senators conducting the confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh's nomination to the highest court in the country will still ultimately determine his future.

President Donald Trump's remarks at a MS rally Tuesday night mocking Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "made me feel sort of sick", Sen.

Agents spoke with Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh's who Ford said was in the room when she was assaulted. "I don't know", Trump said on stage in Southhaven, Mississippi, mimicking and misrepresenting Ford's testimony.

The group said in a statement that at last week's dramatic Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, he showed "extreme partisan bias", demonstrating he lacks the temperament to join the high court.

Trump nominated Kavanaugh to replace Anthony Kennedy, who had been a swing vote on a court now divided between four conservative and four liberal justices. Hill accused Thomas of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Imitating her testimony, Mr Trump said: "What neighbourhood was it in?" "It shows the reaction to the testimony and does show an underlying change in attitude than 27 years ago".

He told supporters in the town of Southhaven on Tuesday night that his political opponents had been "trying to destroy Judge Kavanaugh since the very first second he was announced".

President Donald Trump incredibly managed to dip to a new low on Tuesday night, while holding a rally in Southaven, Mississippi where he openly mocked alleged sexual assault survivor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

"This is unfair. What they're doing to this good, decent man can not stand", Graham said. " 'I had one beer.' Right?" "So President Trump went through a factual rendition that I didn't particularly like and I would tell him to "Knock it off, you're not helping" but it can be worse - you can kill someone's cat and puncture their tires to get them to shut up". I don't remember. Where was the place? I don't know. I don't know!

"'What neighbourhood was it in?' I don't know". "It's worse for Judiciary Committee members, but I know Senator Collins is having a lot of trouble - she can hardly leave her home". I don't know. I don't know. That's the only thing I remember.

The crowd applauded wildly, as the president's ridicule grew.

Moreover, the inquiry focused mainly on the account of Ford, the research psychologist who alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were high school students in the Washington suburbs.

He was, she said, so drunk that he was unable to remove her clothing. By Monday, he was highlighting gaps in Ford's memory.

Three key Republican senators condemned Trump's remarks.

They continued: "It is troubling that the Committee Majority has characterized information from Judge Kavanaugh's confidential background investigation on Twitter, as that information is confidential and not subject to public release".

'Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to senators'. About a quarter of voters said it makes no difference to their vote.

The White House has found "no corroboration" of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
