Christine Blasey Ford will only give documents to Federal Bureau of Investigation

"This is a very hard time". Kavanaugh angrily denied the charges hours later and accused Democrats of orchestrating a "political hit" against him.

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

Trump ripped into Ford at a rally Tuesday night in MS, claiming that the only thing in her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee she could remember that she only had "one beer" at the high school party in the 1980s at which she said she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh.

Opposition among Americans to Kavanaugh has increased in the wake of last week's hearing, Reuters/Ipsos polling data showed on Wednesday.

A number of Kavanaugh's classmates have publicly said he misrepresented or lied about his drinking habits when he was in school, while he testified under oath in front of the Senate.

At a news conference on Monday, President Donald Trump decried what he described as "trauma" inflicted upon Kavanaugh, but nevertheless said he wants to see the FBI "do a very comprehensive investigation".

At the same time, a backlash to that backlash has begun brewing in conservative circles.

"Boy, you guys want power", he said at the time.

President Trump, as well as his family, have raised fears about the possibility of politically motivated false accusations.

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

"You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something - doesn't necessarily have to be a woman - but somebody could accuse you of something and you're automatically guilty".

"I don't know. I don't know", Trump said.

Writing to the FBI, attorneys for Professor Christine Blasey Ford said it was "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a thorough investigation without interviewing her. Either way, the testimony given by both Kavanaugh and Ford might have already made a permanent impact.

"What neighborhood was it in?" I know, because, especially in our first two years of college, I often drank with him. I don't remember. Where was the place?

He said Kavanaugh - who has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia for 12 years and worked in the George W. Bush White House before that - clearly fits that description. "A man's life is shattered".

"A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford", tweeted Michael Bromwich, a former high-ranking Department of Justice official who is now representing the professor.

The letter went on: "This afternoon, we learned of media reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not intend to interview either Dr Ford or Judge Kavanaugh". And if it was anger he wanted out of Kavanaugh, Trump got it.

"Think of your son".

Michael R. Bromwich, one of Ford's lawyers, called it a "a vicious, vile and soulless attack" in a post on Twitter. Trump also paid off a porn actress for silence over an alleged one-night stand with her when his son Barron was only a few months old.

"I heard it'll be today, I just don't know when", Cornyn told reporters. That's the only thing I remember.

"Americans have good reason to doubt this man's credibility".

And she criticized the media and Democratic lawmakers for picking apart every word Kavanaugh has said without giving ample scrutiny to what the White House increasingly characterizes as Ford's inconsistent comments about the night in question.

"He's going to have a very strong report card, " he said.
