Indeed, the Republican National Committee said it has seen a surge in donations over the last week, with Sunday marking the committee's largest online fundraising day ever, according to an RNC official. Doesn't really matter what any of that means because the new crisis has just given Trump a surprise gift to brandish against the #MeToo moment. I wish he hadn't. done it.

Mr Flake of Arizona is a closely watched swing vote as Republicans can potentially only afford one defection if they are to confirm their nominee.

The controversy around Kavanaugh's nomination has erupted just a month before the midterm elections that will determine control of Congress. Trump is logging multiple trips each week to rally support for Republican candidates he needs to win, and on Tuesday showed he's ready to stoke voters by vociferously fighting for his nominee amid an FBI investigation into the allegations.

CNN quoted her as saying on Wednesday morning: "The president's comments were just plain wrong".

A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. "I think "appalling" is an appropriate term", King said.

The FBI will pass its findings to the White House, which will give them to the Senate.

He told supporters in the town of Southhaven on Tuesday night that his political opponents had been "trying to destroy Judge Kavanaugh since the very first second he was announced".

Trump, in an angry rant at a MS rally Tuesday night, stuck up for Kavanaugh against the sexual assault claims and openly mocked Blasey's Senate testimony. I don't know, but I had one beer.

"How did you get home?" he said, taking on the role of prosecutor.

When asked about what happened to Judge Merrick Garland, who President Barack Obama nominated in 2016 but was never brought before the Senate to be confirmed, Graham made a promise to the crowd that many Democrats will likely remember in 2020: "If an opening comes in the past year of President Trump's term, we will wait until the next election". And Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the committee's top Democrat, also stressed that the report can't be released and added: "I don't know what's going to be in it". What neighbourhood was it in? 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it? Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

"On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man's face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail". "The other problem is for the people that are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, I think it diminishes the real claims".

Trump said Tuesday night that Kavanaugh's "life is in tatters".

"I thought her testimony was very compelling and she looks like a very fine woman to me, very fine woman", Trump told reporters in the White House last Friday following Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "You are truly guilty until proven innocent".

In a letter written on Tuesday to Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray and Federal Bureau of Investigation general counsel Dana Boente, Prof Ford's lawyers noted that it was five days since the fresh background check was launched.

"36 years ago, this happened", Trump said referring to the 1982 party where Ford alleges the assault took place.

Appearing before the committee last week, Ford, a research psychologist in northern California, drew on her own expertise to explain how the brain processed traumatic memories.

Ramirez has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her while both were college students.
