The White House ordered a one-week FBI investigation of sexual misconduct accusations against Kavanaugh after Christine Blasey Ford's testified last week that the nominee had assaulted her at a high school party. Last week, a triumvirate of Republican senators - Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - vowed to withhold support for the nominee unless the White House allowed a supplemental background check into claims of sexual assault against Kavanaugh from California university professor Christine Blasey Ford.

"Hopefully, they'll have a vote by the end of the week and it will be a positive vote, but it will be dependent on what comes back from the FBI", Trump said.

"What we want to see is, is there evidence or corroboration that the FBI is able to find through the supplemental investigation that would corroborate Dr. Ford's accusations and if not, I will continue to support Judge Kavanaugh based on the information that I have at this time", Ernst said.

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, accused Kavanaugh of delivering a "partisan screed" during the judiciary committee hearing last week. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), told reporters that a Friday vote on Kavanaugh would be "too soon", adding that it wouldn't give lawmakers enough time to review the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court was approved on an 11-10 party-line vote Friday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Senate Democrats want to hear directly from the FBI about the results of its background investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Barbara Van Gelder, Judge's lawyer, confirmed the interview had been completed but declined to say exactly when it ended or what Judge was asked.

Flake and Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote. I don't remember. How many years ago was it? But voters do recognize that Democrats have completely undermined the nomination and confirmation process: 69% of respondents to the poll call the hearings a "national disgrace", and 55% blame Democrats for being too partisan throughout.

"Don't do that", he told another reporter who tried to ask about Kavanaugh before he was done speaking about trade. In an unusual tactic for a presidential press conference, Trump ignored at least three questions about his Supreme Court nominee.

The president's fellow Republicans accuse Democrats of seeking to delay a vote until after the mid-term elections, in the hope they will win control of Congress and derail Judge Kavanaugh's appointment. "That's one of the very bad things that's taking place now".

The Post said the probe would now encompass the allegations of a third Kavanaugh accuser but wouldn't take an unfettered look at Kavanaugh's drinking or as a young man or examine the veracity of his statements about his drinking at the Senate Judicary Committee hearing last week.

One of Kavanaugh's classmates claimed that following a UB40 concert, a group that included Kavanaugh went to a bar where they spotted a man who some in the group believed resembled a member of the band.

Trump said he believed Kavanaugh did not lie during his Judiciary Committee testimony about the extent of his drinking in high school and college. "We all know this", Mr. Hatch said in a Tuesday op-ed in The Wall Street Journal. "As Kavanaugh well knows, in our legal system, even small lies matter", said a Monday op-ed in Politico by Demand Justice's Brian Fallon and Christopher Kang, who both worked in the Obama administration.

He said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his ascension to the high court.
