A 51 vote majority will be needed to advance Kavanaugh and a final vote could come as early as Saturday.

"It's time to put this embarrassing spectacle behind us", he said.

The summaries will first go to the White House, members of the committee have been told, and then to the Hill, where they will be made available to senators in a secured room, Corker said.

Cory Booker, D-N.J., at right, pauses as they speak to reporters about the political battle for confirmation of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Feeding the anxiety was an unusually beefy presence of the U.S. Capitol Police, who were keeping demonstrators and frequently reporters at arm's length by forming wedges around lawmakers walking through corridors. The Senate is likely to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by the end of the week. "This entire process has been a disgrace and the only reason it has been that way was because Senate Democrats didn't do this the way that it should have been done".

"It's just basic memory functions, and also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain that. encodes memories into the hippocampus so that trauma-related experience is locked there [while] other memories just drift", Ford said. "You're not helping", Trump ally Sen. Now the New York Department of Taxation is "vigorously pursuing" a review of the Trumps' activities.

Following testimony from one of his accusers before a US Senate committee, an FBI background investigation was re-opened to examine the allegations.

During a MS rally on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee because there were details of the assault she could not remember.

The Democrats said the information in the tweet is "not accurate, " urging the GOP to correct it. The committee stands by its statement, which is completely truthful.

Amid criticism from key Republican senators, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford during a rally Tuesday. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, called it "wholly inappropriate and in my view unacceptable", and Sen.

Appearing on NBC's Today show, Flake said that "there's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally".

Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota have also yet to declare their positions on Kavanaugh. "We will not be intimated by these people".

"Standard procedures often need to be modified for nonstandard situations", Klain said.


Trump: "How many years ago was?"

After Ford's testimony last week, Trump had called her a "very credible witness".

"I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", Trump said.

Ford testified before the Senate judiciary committee in Washington on September 27.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "the president is pointing out factual inconsistencies".

Even Trump ally Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine: "I would tell him, knock it off".

Sanders also blasted Democrats, accusing them of launching a "full-scale assault on" Kavanaugh's integrity.

The FBI has interviewed Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh who Ford said was in the bedroom where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.

He and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. "We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth".

All 100 senators, and a handful of Senate staff, will be able to read the FBI's new report on sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh once it is sent to Congress. The President, however, chose to attack the gaps in her memory - to loud cheers from the crowd.

Ramirez has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they both attended Yale University.
