Federal Bureau of Investigation completes interview of Kavanaugh's high school friend

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

"What neighbourhood was it in?" I don't know.' 'Upstairs? "I had one beer!" he said.

The activists behind the protests said they planned to keep up the effort as the FBI investigates accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college.

The president warned about a unsafe and "damn sad situation" in the country where a man's life can be destroyed over accusations over misconduct and are assumed guilty instead of innocent. "I wish he hadn't had done it", Flake told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on "Today", adding, "It's kind of appalling". It's just not right.

First: A new report from the Wall Street Journal said President Donald Trump personally directed his attorney and one of his sons to prevent the porn star from going public with her claim that she'd had a sexual affair with him before he won the presidency.

Trump's mocking remarks come amid a protracted and heated confirmation process for Kavanaugh. Republicans are also fighting to maintain or expand their 51-to-49 seat Senate majority.

The FBI will pass its findings to the White House, which will give them to the Senate.

A spokesman for McConnell noted that the agreement with Flake and other swing senators was to have a procedural vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by Friday, so the majority leader would have to take steps to tee up that vote on Wednesday.

Trump has continued to support Kavanaugh amid the allegations but until Tuesday he had largely withheld criticism of the alleged victims and his enthusiasm for the judge was tempered.

The complaints from Ford's attorneys are the latest controversy to emerge since the FBI began its investigation five days ago.

In her speech, Hyde-Smith mentioned Trump's support for the armed services.

A cardboard cut-out of Alyssa Milano also drew several laughs from the crowd. " I don't know the meaning of the word 'stop!' ". The testimony saw him speak of his love of beer - which SNL took to task. "I'm going to start at an 11". "This is my speech".

Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House. White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "the president is pointing out factual inconsistencies".

Ford's legal team told Fox News that Ford stands by her testimony. There are facts that she can not remember: "how she got home, how she got there, where the house was, what the date was". "I don't know. But I had one beer", Trump said, to laughter from the crowd.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top United States court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue just weeks before November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.

McConnell mocked the questions from Democrats about Kavanaugh's drinking in high school and college. While Flake said Kavanaugh deserves some leeway given what he and his family been through, he said, "We can't have this on the court". "This is all part of the organised effort to delay, obstruct and intimidate, including those of us who will be voting this week". Ludington said Kavanaugh cursed at the man, and that Kavanaugh's friend, basketball player Chris Dudley, threw a glass in the face of the guy they thought was Campbell.

■While the FBI's exact plans are unknown, Democrats have sent the agency a list of two dozen witnesses they want interviewed, and there are still others who have spoken out on Kavanaugh whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation could speak with.

Judge has said that he has no memory of the alleged incident and never saw Kavanaugh behave like that.

In testimony last Thursday, Ford described attending a house party in the Washington DC suburbs in the early 1980s at which she was pushed into a bedroom where a drunken Kavanaugh held her down, groped her, tried to strip her and left her fearing for her life.

Appearing at a forum sponsored by The Atlantic, Flake said he was concerned about some of Kavanaugh's sharp interactions with Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee last week.
