FBI's Kavanaugh report has 45 pages of interview notes and no summary

"I don't remember", he said repeatedly, mocking Dr Ford's testimony.

The movement to stop Kavanaugh isn't just a "woman's issue" fight - Hillary Shelton of the NAACP spoke on numerous issues that Judge Kavanaugh has been bad on such as voting rights and race. The panel's Republican senators, all men, did not question her, assigning that task to Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor.

In the Senate, the savage national debate over power and who to believe has above all been about the math.

Given that Republicans have a razor-thin 51-49 margin of control in the Senate, the party can potentially only afford one defection if it wants the confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. They are Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republicans Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. President Donald Trump ordered the FBI to conduct the investigation.

"The president's comments were just plain wrong", she said in a statement.

While some Republicans and Trump have called the allegations by Ford and the two other women part of a smear campaign, Ford told the committee she had no political motivation, adding, "I am an independent person and I am no pawn".

The shift has bolstered Republican hopes of saving their Senate majority in the upcoming elections.

Prof Ford, a California academic, accused him of pinning her to a bed and groping her drunkenly at a 1982 house party when both were teenagers. She made time to appear at Trump's rally Tuesday night in Southaven, Mississippi.

He also said, "I disagree with Sen". Protesters shouted at her on the way in and out of a hearing Wednesday. "There is no time and no place for remarks like that", Flake said. And with a Senate test vote on Kavanaugh's nomination set for this Friday, October 5, Bloomberg.com's Mike Dorning is reporting that FBI director Christopher A. Wray "is documenting what's happening behind the scenes in order to help ensure the bureau's activities in the Kavanaugh investigation are captured and perhaps made public one day". Kavanaugh has said stories of bad behavior while drinking are exaggerated.

Outside Phoenix, Rep. Martha McSally, a sexual assault survivor herself, said the issues raised by Ford are "pretty personal".

Democrats criticized the limited scope of the FBI investigation. Those who signed the letter said Kavanaugh was "repeatedly aggressive" in his remarks, was "discourteous to senators" and "exhibited a lack of commitment to judicious inquiry". "Our society is not a place where uncorroborated allegations of misconduct from almost 40 years ago, allegations which are vigorously disputed, can nullify someone's career or destroy their reputation". Asked about Trump's mockery in Mississippi, McSally said, "I'd prefer that we all have some grace here".

Polls are showing that this nomination fight has animated Republicans like no other. The results of a Quinnipiac poll released on Monday show 48 percent of Americans are against the confirmation of Kavanaugh's nomination, while 42 percent are supportive. A September Quinnipiac poll found a almost even split in opinions on the confirmation.

The Kavanaugh impact is much bigger for Democrats and can boost turnout in states with swing Senate and House seats in play. But 84 per cent of Republicans said Kavanaugh should be confirmed.

Christine Blasey Ford, her voice sometimes cracking with emotion, appeared in public for the first time to detail her allegation against Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge chosen by President Donald Trump for a lifetime job on the top U.S. court.
