"We make this request because of ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law", Carlson wrote.

The President told reporters Saturday in Washington on his way to a rally in West Virginia, "The FBI as you know is all over, talking to everybody". The Democratic incumbent, Joe Manchin, faces a tough road to re-election in a state Trump won by 42 points in 2016.

Kavanaugh is the second judge to be nominated by Trump on the nine-member US Supreme Court.

A Yale classmate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh accused him Sunday of a "blatant mischaracterization" of his drinking while in college, saying that he often saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption".

Another committee member, Sen. But he bucked his party and called for a probe not lasting longer than a week that will be "short and limited in scope to the current allegations that have been made".

Republican Senators said Friday afternoon they would allow up to a week for the investigation to be held before they held the final vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the nation's highest court.

Federal Bureau of Investigation interviews second Kavanaugh accuser
Feinstein?" "I don't think there's ever been any person who's been under scrutiny like he has". Kavanaugh now faces several accusers who claim the judge sexually harassed or assaulted them.

"Any impact that this entire episode has had on women's willingness to come forward and report sexual assault, which I encourage them all to do immediately after it happens, is caused by the Democrats, is caused by Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer not respecting her requests for confidentiality", he said.

Swetnick's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said on Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but is willing to fully cooperate with investigators.

Ford testified Thursday that she remembers seeing Judge looking "ill" while he was working at a Safeway during the summer of 1982, weeks after the assault.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account.

At a dramatic televised hearing on Thursday, university professor Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of pinning her down and assaulting her in the 1980s. The remaining third of the public consisted of 23% who were not sure about both, 7% who believed one, but were unsure about the other, 4% who thought both were lying, and 2% who disbelieved one and were unsure about the other. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators. Is that because she is not on the White House-approved witness list?

At that point, all senators, as well as a very small group of aides, would have access to it.

In her interview with agents, Ramirez detailed her allegation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s.

In addition to being a "frequent" and "heavy drinker", Ludington said Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when drunk.

Republicans, who are trying to retain control of the U.S. Congress in November elections, are seeking to balance their desire to have a conservative judge on the Supreme Court with sensitivity in how they handle the sexual misconduct allegations amid the reverberations of the #MeToo movement.

Trump adviser Conway said on Sunday that she was the victim of sexual assault and that women who survive such experiences should be heard. They betrayed her own requests for confidentiality.

The American Bar Association said it supported the renewed background check. "We may well be in a different place a week from now because Judge Kavanaugh and his family may well have had exculpatory evidence brought forward".

Initially, in 2003, the ABA's judicial review committee found him "well qualified" - the association's highest possible endorsement.
