What's missing from the FBI's investigation into Brett Kavanaugh?

"This great life can not be ruined by mean and despicable Democrats and totally uncorroborated allegations!"

President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans gained confidence on Thursday that his U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would win Senate confirmation after two wavering lawmakers responded positively to an Federal Bureau of Investigation report on accusations of sexual misconduct against the judge.

Actress and comedian Amy Schumer, who is known as a campaigner for gun control and is involved with the Time's Up movement against sexual violence and harassment - and is a cousin of Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer - was also reportedly detained. Senators were allowed to read it behind closed doors in a secure location in the Capitol, without taking notes or making copies.

Ford's allegations were accompanied by unverified and salacious claims from two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, with the latter accusing Kavanaugh of gang rape in a sworn statement before walking back on the claim in a TV interview. Sen.

But whatever you think of whether Kavanaugh's testimony was justified, he has certainly facilitated that ongoing process.

In setting the voting process in motion, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is likely to call for a final vote over the weekend. Kavanaugh denied the allegation and painted himself as the victim of a "political hit".

In her congressional hearing last week, Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when he was drunk at a small social gathering during summer vacation when they were in high school.

A vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation is expected on Saturday after the FBI completed a supplemental background investigation of Kavanaugh and the new claims against him.

The Kavanaugh fight has riveted Americans weeks before November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans. It was not clear why the 10th was not interviewed.

"I don't know whether Brett is going to be confirmed, but women and survivors are not going to be quiet any more".

Neither has said how she will vote.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, blamed the FBI's narrow list of interviewees on the White House.

Earlier this week Donald Trump was criticised for imitating Dr Ford at a rally in Mississippi. I'm the first person to say, 'I want to hear from Dr. Ford.' I thought she was handled respectfully.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told reporters that Trump's lampooning of Ford at a Tuesday night MS campaign rally was "just plain wrong." Sen.

Senator Lisa Murkowski called Trump's speech "wholly inappropriate" and "unacceptable".

Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona said the findings contained "no additional corroborating information". Kavanaugh could soon begin delivering the deciding votes on key 5-to-4 decisions that will inflame the same Democrats he just turned into his political foils to win his seat. Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it". Jeff Flake thinks Trump's comments are "kind of appalling". Gildo-Mazzon submitted a declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee saying Ford told her in 2013 that she had been sexually assaulted in the past. He is avowedly anti-Trump and has been a foe of the White House since his lawsuit against the president on behalf of adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

In an interview, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said McConnell was "hell bent on getting this done" this week.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders dismissed the widespread view that Trump mocked Ford.

"I'm sorry you're a one-issue voter", he told WVNews this week. Kavanaugh has said stories of his bad behavior while drinking are exaggerated.

"How did you get home?" 'How did you get there?' I don't remember. I don't remember. Where is the place? I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don't know. I don't know. I don't even know him.

With Republicans clinging to a razor-thin 51-49 Senate majority and five senators - including three Republicans - still publicly undeclared, the conservative jurist's prospects of Senate confirmation could hinge largely on the file's contents.

None of the three undecided Republicans would say if they had made their minds up one way or another.
