'It's A Very Scary Time For Young Men In America'

A lawyer for Mr Judge, who has denied any wrongdoing, declined to say when the interview finished or what he was asked. "As interesting as this all is, I can't imagine that any members who want to read it will not go over there and read it immediately", Mr. McConnell said.

Archila chastises Flake that his swing vote could place a man accused of assaulting a young woman as a similarly deciding vote on the highest court in the land, likely to rule on cases involving body autonomy and reproductive rights.

"After the Federal Bureau of Investigation shares what they've found, senators will have the opportunity to vote", McConnell said.

President Donald Trump and the Republicans were quickly criticized after it was announced that the FBI would investigate the accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because multiple reports found that the probe would be severely limited in scope and closely managed by the White House.

Avenatti, who has said he is considering a Democratic run for the presidency in 2020, is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who was paid to remain silent about an alleged affair with Trump.

But Democrats said the bigger issue now is that the judge has lied to Congress and shown too much anger at Democrats who are obstructing his nomination.

"Hopefully, as Mitch said, they'll have a vote by the end of the week, and it'll be a positive vote".

Kavanaugh has denied assaulting Ford. That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote.

Judge Kavanaugh and Prof Ford gave public testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

The announcement was made in an email from administrators to law students on Monday.

A number of Kavanaugh's classmates have publicly said he misrepresented or lied about his drinking habits when he was in school, while he testified under oath in front of the Senate.

While the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh are deeply troubling, there's unlikely to be the kind of clear evidence for these acts as there might be for accusations of perjury.

Lynne Brookes, who said she moved in "the exact same social circles" as Mr Kavanaugh, said "when he would drink, he would get obnoxious".

Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

Trump's comments on Tuesday were just the latest instance of the President expressing concern about the public outcry resulting from the allegations against Kavanaugh and the impact on other men.

Ernst says if no corroboration is turned up she "will continue to support Judge Kavanaugh based on the information" she has.

"Americans have good reason to doubt this man's credibility".

The poll has less rosy news for Republicans as a Quinnipiac poll released at the same time: voters still believe they'll turn out for Democrats in November, even though Democrats have treated the Supreme Court nomination process like a kangaroo court.

Later, Flake surprised everyone watching when he voted "yea" on sending Kavanaugh's nomination to the floor for confirmation, but only pending an investigation by the FBI, effectively delaying the vote by a week.
