Trump mocks Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford at campaign rally

Brett Kavanaugh has been teaching a course at Harvard Law for about a decade, the school said. Kavanaugh's confirmation to the lifetime post would cement the conservative grip on the Supreme Court. Dianne Feinstein of California said Tuesday was too soon to "put all the facts together". With Republicans defending majorities in the House and Senate next month, officials cast Trump's visit as an attempt to get ahead of a potentially perilous situation. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in Kavanaugh's favour.

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate, said last week he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, but then called for an expanded FBI investigation of the accusations, delaying the confirmation timetable.

Ernst is among six Republican women in the Senate.

"We're in the midst of a manufacturing renaissance - something which nobody thought you'd hear", Trump said in a speech to the National Electrical Contractors Association Convention a day after celebrating the new North American trade deal.

Opinions of Ford's testimony - on social media and television networks - were that she was powerful and believable. The letter remains open for additional signatures through Thursday, when it will be presented to the Senate. She testified that Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed, tried to take off her clothes and covered her mouth in the early 1980s, when the two were teenagers.

But Trump also seemed to distance himself from his own nominee, even as he told the crowd he needed their support to get him through. "He sure didn't show the demeanor of a judge at the hearing".

Flake, Collins and one other key Republican - Sen. The votes of Republicans Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) are not yet certain.

"Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well?" Their votes will likely decide whether he is confirmed.

Democrats expressed concern on Sunday about reported efforts to stymie the probe, which comes after the Judiciary Committee approved Mr Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday before it goes to the full Senate for a final vote.

A Harvard/Harris poll released Tuesday shows that while many Americans believe Kavanaugh shouldn't be confirmed before the Federal Bureau of Investigation concludes its seventh background check on the embattled judge, if the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe comes up empty, most Americans would like to see the Kavanaugh affair over and over quickly.

McConnell said that there is "no chance in the world they're going to scare us out of doing our duty".

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

The Senate has delayed a confirmation vote on Kavanaugh while the FBI conducts a background investigation into Blasey Ford's allegations.

Kavanaugh has denied claims of sexual misconduct by three different women - Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

She initially said she saw Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge spiking the punch at parties, making them much more complicit in whatever sexual misdeeds happened next.

The announcement was made in an email from administrators to law students on Monday. I wish he hadn't done it...it's kind of appalling'.

"This woman had no clue what was going on, and yet she made the most disgusting charges", Trump said, pointing out that Kavanaugh went to Yale as apparent evidence that the claims were spurious.
