Republican senators say Federal Bureau of Investigation report on Kavanaugh likely coming Wednesday

Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said Wednesday that last week's hearing was "no substitute" for Federal Bureau of Investigation interviews with Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

His comments came as lawyers for Ms Ford and a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, said they fear the FBI is not conducting a thorough investigation into their allegations.

I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes.

Even Fox News' John Roberts asked Sanders why Trump took his nasty tone, given the blowback that has ensued next day from three GOP senators who are on the fence about Kavanaugh and whose votes will be the difference between Kavanaugh's confirmation or not, Jeff Fake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

"The president was stating the facts" about the gaps in Ford's recollection of the alleged incident, Sanders said.

She also blasted Democrats for allegedly hurting both Kavanaugh and Ford by "circumventing the entire system" in their approach to the accusations.

They said the agency had not responded to the offer to interview Prof Ford, or "a series of emails and letters in which we identified witnesses and evidence that would likely assist the FBI".

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.
