Ford claims she told a therapist about the alleged sexual assault during a session in 2012 where she was accompanied by her husband, though she has admitted that Kavanaugh was never named.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" 'I don't know.' Where's the house? Downstairs? Where was it?' 'I don't know.

"I have NEVER had Christine Blasey Ford, or anybody else, prepare me, or provide any other type of assistance whatsoever in connection with any polygraph exam I have taken at anytime", McClean said.

Kavanaugh has denied claims of sexual misconduct by three different women - Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

Ludington said Kavanaugh was trying to figure out whether a man at the bar was UB40 lead singer Campbell, who would have been coming from the concert and in his 20s at the time. Jeff Flake of Arizona said. It's just not right.

"I do think it brings up what's at stake in this election", Wicker said.

President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday that the FBI had the authority to interview anyone it desired, pushing back against charges by Senate Democrats that the White House was limiting the scope of the investigation.

Hot on the campaign trail, Trump aimed to galvanize his supporters in the Magnolia state, as he once again made remarks lambasting the Democrats for their policies, and most recently for their conduct during Kavanaugh's committee hearings.

Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

When Trump ordered the FBI investigation last week under pressure from a handful of Senate Republicans, he set a deadline of this Friday for the probe's completion. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", he said.

In this file photo taken on September 4, 2018 Judge Brett Kavanaugh looks on during his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and other lawmakers, the Senate last Friday agreed the FBI could investigate for up to a week, meaning its deadline is this Friday.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?"

Trump, while making his case that Kavanaugh deserves a spot on the Supreme Court, told the rally crowd in MS, "I don't even know him". White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "the president is pointing out factual inconsistencies". But she's made some strong comments about Ford and her testimony, making that less clear.

"'How did you get home?' 'I don't remember.' 'How'd you get there?' 'I don't remember.' 'Where is the place?' 'I don't remember.' 'How many years ago was it?' 'I don't know".

Leaning: Flake said Friday morning that he would vote yes, only to say hours later that he would withhold his support until the Federal Bureau of Investigation gets a week to investigate.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination has been unusually emotional and has unfolded just weeks ahead of November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Republicans. He said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his ascension to the high court. "This is all part of the organised effort to delay, obstruct and intimidate, including those of us who will be voting this week".

"I wish he hadn't done it", Flake said. On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has denied the incident.
