Republican Senator Susan Collins, who is also considered a swing vote on the Kavanaugh nomination, called Trump's remarks "plain wrong".

"It's time to put this embarrassing spectacle behind us", he said. However, senators would be doing so at a contentious time.

On Tuesday, Graham said he thought Kavanaugh would be nominated. "More baseless innuendo and more false smears from Senate Democrats", the committee's majority tweeted in response. "Every single bit of evidence and facts that we have seen in this moment have supported Judge Kavanaugh's case", Sanders said.

Three Republican senators who will be crucial to deciding whether Brett Kavanaugh reaches the Supreme Court hit out at President Donald Trump on Wednesday after he unleashed an attack on Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused the judge of sexual assault. "You're not helping", Trump ally Sen. He added of Thomas, "He's been on the Supreme Court for 26 years, and I've never heard anybody raise any questions about his temperament, and it's seemed to me to be just as dogmatic and as explosive as what he said". Now the New York Department of Taxation is "vigorously pursuing" a review of the Trumps' activities.

The FBI's report will be delivered to the hill no later than Thursday. Democrats wrote that the Republican tweet contained information that is "not accurate".

As he flew aboard Air Force One to the MS rally, Trump was also enraged by stories in The New York Times about Kavanaugh's high school and college years and alleging tax avoidance efforts by the president and his family, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Women were far more likely than men in the poll to oppose Kavanaugh, 55 percent to 40 percent. "We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth". But background checks do not traditionally contain investigators' conclusions about who they believe is credible.

Trump's mockery reflected a growing frustration among some in the White House, and by the president, that her story has not received the same level of scrutiny as Kavanaugh's, said a person close to the process who was not authorized to speak publicly.

But Sanders argued that Trump was simply pointing out gaps in Ford's testimony that had also been noted by sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was hired by Republican senators to question her during the hearing. The agency has also spoken to a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, who has claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a Yale party when both were freshmen.
