Mr Trump said he wanted the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee, but said he did not want to see a "witch hunt".

Trump Jr.'s comments echoed the sentiments of his father, who said last week that the Kavanaugh accusations set a "very, very unsafe standard for our country".

The White House has given the Federal Bureau of Investigation authority to talk to anyone it wants to in its probe of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as long as it's done by the end of the week, according to media reports.

"To Judge Kavanaugh, Jeff Flake, the president and all those other men like them, Dr. Ford's not a scared teenager anymore and neither am I, and we're coming for you", Harrington said. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

She alleges that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were both students at Yale.

Lynne Brookes said last week that during his testimony Kavanaugh "grossly misrepresented and mischaracterized his drinking" in college.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday he wants the FBI to do a "comprehensive" investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh, but that he stands by his Supreme Court nominee "all the way".

Pressley, a city councilor who is running unopposed to represent half of Boston in Congress, said in a statement that the groping allegations against Kavanaugh are "credible and deeply disturbing", and that she'll continue to oppose the nominee.

Charles Ludington, who played varsity basketball at Yale and regularly socialised with Kavanaugh, said in a statement that he repeatedly saw Kavanaugh "staggering from alcohol consumption" and even witnessed him once throw a beer in a classmate's face during a dispute.

The senator described Kavanaugh's response as "belligerent, aggressive, [and] angry", and noted that it made him wonder about Kavanaugh's suitability for the high court.

Mr Trump ordered the FBI to carry out an investigation, lasting up to a week, of the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh after Senate Republican leaders were pressed by moderate senators in Mr Trump's own party. But he also wants the FBI to investigate the charges from Christine Blasey Ford and as many as two other accusers. "I think you give a little leeway there".

Trump is pushing back on reports that the White House has tried to limit the scope of the investigation, telling reporters at the White House Monday that "the FBI should do what they have to do to get to the answer" and "interview anybody that they want within reason". But he also said Senate Republicans are determining the parameters of the investigation and "ultimately, they're making the judgment".

When asked whether he thought a limited investigation would be enough to satisfy hold out Republican votes, McConnell replied, "We've asked them what they need, and this is what they have said".

Judge Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge has been interviewed by agents.

The third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations.

Three days ago, the Republican senator single-handedly delayed Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings by insisting on an FBI investigation as a condition for his support.

Mr Kavanaugh appeared before the committee on the same day as Christine Blasey Ford, who said she feared she was going to be raped by him at a high school party. "When and if we do, we will promptly disclose to them all information and witnesses in our possession", Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Swetnick, said on Saturday on Twitter.
