'It's a very scary time for young men in America'

U.S. President Donald Trump, for his part, tweeted that no matter how much time and discretion the Federal Bureau of Investigation was given, "it will never be enough" for Democrats trying to keep Kavanaugh off the bench.

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before departing from the White House en route to speak with electrical workers in Philadelphia, Penn.

"My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent".

"[Democrats] will not be satisfied unless they have brought down Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said. The report said Kavanaugh, then a student at Yale University, threw ice at a man during an altercation at a New Haven bar.

"It depends on what is confidential", she told reporters.

A witness told police the man who threw the glass was Chris Dudley, Kavanaugh's close friend.

"I tell myself, 'You give a little leeway because of what he's been through.' But on the other hand, we can't have this on the court".

Dudley and Cozzolino didn't immediately return messages on Tuesday.

If his nomination clears the panel, it must win confirmation from the full Senate, which Republicans narrowly control 51-49. Judge is a boyhood friend of Kavanaugh who has written a book describing the debauchary of his high school years.

She declined to say exactly when it ended or what Mr Judge was asked.

"I got boys and I got girls, and when I see what's going on right now - it's scary", Trump Jr. said.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who chairs the Judiciary Committee, expressed concern to reporters that releasing the report from an FBI background investigation to the public could dissuade people from speaking with investigators in the future.

Ford testified last Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account. "The politics of personal destruction were willfully unleashed".

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

News outlets report the women staged a sit-in at Democratic Sen. Everything changed after Christine Blasey Ford agreed to testify at last week's highly charged hearing on Capitol Hill.

Asked about allegations of sexual assault in the 1980s levelled against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Mr Trump said it was troubling that people were found "automatically guilty" and had to prove their innocence. But when none of these tactics worked - when Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated his widely-acknowledged brilliance, open-mindedness, and collegiality at his confirmation hearings - some chose a darker road. He has taught at the law school for about a decade.

A vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh has been delayed as the FBI investigates the claims, which he denies. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Mr Trump said he believed the Senate would approve the judge.

Ernst is among six Republican women in the Senate.

The FBI will also question Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations made against them.

Ernst says if no corroboration is turned up she "will continue to support Judge Kavanaugh based on the information" she has. First, back in June, Democrats tried to argue the Senate shouldn't confirm a Supreme Court justice in any even-numbered year. He says there is mounting evidence that the appeals court judge isn't credible.

Mr. McConnell said the report will be done this week, and the Senate will vote this week.
