Schumer made his request in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

"The goal posts keep shifting", he said on the Senate floor as he accused Democrats of devising endless delays.

■New questions are being raised by Democrats about whether, sexual misconduct allegations aside, Kavanaugh has been truthful about his drinking, and has showed the proper temperament to be a judge on the nation's highest court.

The FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is being questioned by lawyers for two of his accusers. "But now you're guilty until proven innocent". Trump said, apparently re-enacting Blasey Ford's questioning by a Senate panel as he addressed supporters at a campaign rally in Mississippi. He denies those accusations as well.

Days after being ordered to look into sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has talked with his high school friend Mark Judge, but the interview is not complete, his attorney said on Monday.

Democratic Senator Chris Coons told reporters he was in discussions with the White House on the probe. Democrats are pressing the investigators to expand their list of witness interviews but have agreed with the timeline. Anything we say can or do can be twisted by women we work with. Jeff Flake and Susan Collins pointedly rebuking the president. Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Claire McCaskill of Missouri.

It's Tuesday, OP friends, and we don't want to jinx it, so we're not even going to say anything about the pace of this week.

McConnell doesn't want the wait for a vote to go on much longer.

Flake, meanwhile, on Tuesday said senators have to give Kavanaugh some leeway for his combative testimony las week, given the nature of the accusations against him.

Trump said a vote for Espy, one of Hyde-Smith's opponents, would further the Democrat's "far-left" legislation. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.

Trump said that the Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh's nomination are "evil people" who are out to 'destroy people'.

The ACLU ad compares Kavanaugh to Bill Cosby, the former comedian sentenced last week for sexual assault, as well as to former President Bill Clinton.

In a recurring theme of United's decline over the past few months, though, there seemed little cohesive attacking plan other than a series of long balls hurled towards Romelu Lukaku .

Asked whether he had a message for American women, Trump said: "Women are doing great". He said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his ascension to the high court.

"Is he telling the truth?" The Washington-based conservative group, among the staunchest advocates for Kavanaugh's confirmation, said Tuesday it would spend $400,000 on a new ad.

A second Kavanaugh accuser, Debbie Ramirez, met with the FBI for about two hours on Sunday, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

Judge could conceivably corroborate the testimony of Kavanaugh or Ford.

He said that soon after the revelation of a letter by Ford asserting that Kavanaugh abused her at a high school gathering in Maryland, "The floodgates of mud and muck opened entirely on Brett Kavanaugh and his family".

The agency has also spoken to the judge's Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who alleges that he exposed his genitals in her face during a college drinking game.

"And a man's life is in tatters", Trump added.

He wasn't. The man in question was then-21-year-old Dom Cozzolino, who was bleeding from the ear as a result of the altercation.

Some Republicans and White House allies have suggested the allegations against Kavanaugh can be potent political fodder in the run-up to November 6, animating GOP voters who have so far lacked the same motivation to head to the polls as their Democratic counterparts.

Trump concluded the riff by lamenting the personal cost to Kavanaugh of Ford's allegations and by insinuating that Ford was part of a partisan conspiracy.

Judge has written several books, including one titled "Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk", and another titled "God and Man at Georgetown Prep: How I Became a Catholic Despite 20 Years of Catholic Schooling". She also said she had seen Kavanaugh try to get girls inebriated and disoriented at multiple earlier parties so they could be raped by a " "train" of numerous boys".

Kavanaugh denies any wrongdoing.
