Who gets to see Kavanaugh FBI report?

Emily Ratajkowski

Judge Kavanaugh, meanwhile, expressed regret for his angry testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee a week ago.

They said 302 people were detained in total, with comedian Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski reportedly among those arrested. A final vote on his confirmation is now expected to occur over the weekend.

The likelihood of Judge Kavanaugh winning a full Senate vote appeared to increase on Thursday after two Republicans whose votes will be essential gave a positive account of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry. Republicans have a narrow 51-49 Senate majority, and Vice President Mike Pence will be available to cast a tie-breaking vote.

"It's time to vote", he said.

Republican Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have been at the center of the Kavanaugh maelstrom for months, since they expressed concerns over Kavanaugh's anti-abortion views. "You're not helping", Trump ally Sen. A key swing vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee split 11-10 as well as in the closely divided Senate, Flake got something resembling his wish: Republicans agreed to a weeklong pause in the drive toward a confirmation vote, while the FBI investigated "credible allegations" against Kavanaugh.

Asked who was the intended audience for the op-ed, the source said, "The Senate and the American people". The Senate will review the FBI investigation for Thursday.

Cory Gardner, a Republican from Colorado, wants to finish reading the report before he makes a decision, his spokesman Casey Contres told the Denver Post.

While the comments by Flake and Collins were positive, neither explicitly announced support for Kavanaugh.

In a statement Wednesday night after McConnell set the vote in motion, Ford's counsel wrote: "An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation".

And Senator Angus King, an independent from Maine who caucuses with Democrats, said on CNN's "New Day" that Trump's comments "made me feel sort of sick".

Kavanaugh and Judge have vehemently denied the allegations by Ford and Swetnick.

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.

Democrats have fought his nomination from the outset. If confirmed, he would deepen conservative control of the court. Democrats said that's too limited given the allegations by Ford and Kavanaugh's Yale classmate, Deborah Ramirez, who says Kavanaugh flashed his genitals in her face.

Thousands of mainly female demonstrators marched on Thursday through the nation's capital, starting at the appeals court where Judge Kavanaugh now presides.

On Thursday, Kavanaugh sought to assuage worries about how political he might be on the court.

Kavanaugh wrote that his testimony "reflected my overwhelming frustration at being wrongly accused". I know that my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the 10 witnesses questioned include several of Kavanaugh's high school friends, some of whom are listed in the judge's calendar as having attended a July 1, 1982 party that Kavanaugh attended. Video of his remarks was shown by the C-SPAN television network.

The Kavanaugh fight has riveted Americans weeks before November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans. Ford says Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the early 1980s.

Messrs Flake, Collins and Murkowski all have criticised Trump for mocking Ford at a political rally in MS on Tuesday. Those offers were made in public statements and in statements directly to Dr. Ford's attorneys in the days leading up to her public testimony. Senators were allowed to read it behind closed doors in a secure location in the Capitol, without taking notes or making copies.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who's repeatedly battled Trump and will retire in January, said he'd vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation "unless something big changes". Heitkamp is in a tough re-election battle in a state Trump by nearly 36 percentage points.

President Donald Trump weighed in hours later in a tweet in which he denounced what he called "the harsh and unfair treatment" of Kavanaugh.

There was another protest in front of Trump Tower in New York City.
