Trump Says It's a 'Very Scary Time' in America-For Men

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh, who has denied all the allegations, has found a supporter in Trump.

But it was unclear whether the FBI would add Ludington's accusations to the newly reopened background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, which has been limited in scope and time by the White House and Senate Republicans.

She declined to say exactly when it ended or what Judge was asked. She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed.

Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House.

George Hartmann, a spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), said it best. "We are not moving the goalposts back", Schumer said.

Harvard Law School says U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.

"And so let me make it very clear: the time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close".

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted the next day to advance Kavanaugh out of the committee and towards a full Senate vote, but Sen.

Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised fresh concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing.

It's not now clear whether the Republican leadership has secured enough votes to ensure Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said each senator will get a copy of the FBI's report on its investigation.

In his remarks on Tuesday, Mr Trump did not name Prof Ford, though he appeared to refer to her testimony.

"Friday or Saturday seems awfully optimistic to me without having seen the Federal Bureau of Investigation report", he said.

Trump was commenting amid an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations by multiple women against Kavanaugh in the 1980s.

"I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their "turn" with a girl inside the room", BI quoted Swetnick as saying in her declaration.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while in high school or in college. Mr Kavanaugh denies that as well.

He painted himself as the victim of "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" by Democrats, lashing out at Democratic senators and frequently interrupting them. 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.

Murkowski joined other undecided senators who backed Sen. In one notable exchange, he snapped at Sen.

"You can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said. Another Yale classmate, Jennifer Klaus, said she often socialized with Kavanaugh at Yale and vigorously disputed his portrayal of himself. Kavanaugh parried a question from Sen. Now they are criticizing him for getting mad.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all of the allegations.

He also again said Senators will vote soon.

Asked at that news conference about the message being sent to young women, Trump focused on women's complaints about how Kavanaugh has been treated through his confirmation process. There's also Senate procedure, which takes time.

Trump said he will talk "later" this week with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but expressed trepidation that meeting him before the Kavanaugh nomination is settled could interrupt the process. "The one thing I want is speed".

Still, Trump slammed Senate Democrats during a campaign rally in Tennessee Monday night. In a statement, Ludington said a group of friends had been staring at the man they said looked like Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40, the band they had just seen.
