Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski among 300 arrested in Kavanaugh protests

Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski among 300 arrested in Kavanaugh protests

One Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who faces re-election next month in a state won easily by Mr Trump in 2016, is also wavering.

This scenario is projected in the figure below, which illustrates that no other nominee since 1981 has been put forward by a president who lost the popular vote and confirmed by votes from senators representing a minority of the American public.

If it passes, the Senate expects to vote on his final confirmation on Saturday.

"The most notable part of this report is what's not in it", said Sen. "I thought (Kavanaugh) had the qualifications for the Supreme Court should he be selected", Stevens said in Boca Raton, according to The Palm Beach post.

Local media said only four senators holding key swing votes were still undecided. The Republican leader has little room for error with his party's slim 51-49 hold on the Senate, even if Vice-President Mike Pence is called in to break a tie.

Ford's attorneys said in a statement that they were "profoundly disappointed" in the probe.

"I think women are going to turn out in very big numbers to express their opinion", Representative Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, told reporters on Wednesday. He said Ford and Kavanaugh had an "opportunity to tell in a very detailed and comprehensive fashion the Senate their testimony" and that the administration was "fully confident after reviewing this information senators can be comfortable voting yes". The FBI interviewed only 10 people.

Democrats assailed the probe as an incomplete vetting constrained by a White House determined to push through the lifetime appointment of Trump's man.

The Kavanaugh fight has riveted Americans weeks before November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans. Flake said he saw no additional corroborating information against Kavanaugh, although he was "still reading" it.

"I might have been too emotional at times", he wrote of his Senate testimony last week.

They suggested eight witnesses whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation should have talked to, including longtime friends of Ms. Blasey Ford, her husband, and the former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who conducted a polygraph exam in August. I don't remember. Where was the place? Kavanaugh has denied the claims.

"This woman had no clue what was going on, and yet she made the most awful charges", Trump said.

Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual abuse by three women, including Christine Blasey Ford, who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last the week, saying she was 100 per cent sure that the Supreme Court nominee tried to rape her in 1982. Some lawmakers said they'd not been able to schedule time in the room until Friday.

Heitkamp has been viewed as a potential swing vote and one of the senators who could decide the fate of the nomination.

"The president's comments were just plain wrong", she said in a statement. They accused the White House of limiting the FBI's leeway.

In a letter to President Trump, Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Judiciary Committee ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein discussed their understanding that "conducting background investigations on nominees has always been the FBI's standard practice, and it is common for such background investigations to be reopened when new information about a nominee becomes known". "This great life can not be ruined by mean" and "despicable Democrats and totally uncorroborated allegations!"

A reported nine people were interviewed in the FBI's five-day investigation.

The President made fun of Dr Ford's inability to remember some details about what happened, news.com.au reports.
