Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat of NY, fired back in remarks after McConnell, saying the weeklong delay to the let the FBI investigate came at the request of Republican senators who weren't prepared to vote for Kavanaugh's nomination.

The chairman explained that Ford and Kavanaugh testified under oath before the committee explaining to senators their knowledge of the alleged sexual assault.

Late Wednesday evening, McConnell filed cloture, an action that moves the Senate closer to a confirmation vote, though a final vote would not take place until Saturday at the earliest.

Lawmakers were planning to begin reading the Federal Bureau of Investigation report early Thursday, with senators and a small number of top aides permitted to view it in a secure room in the Capitol complex.

"FBI supplement requested Friday sept 28 by bipartisan group of senators w specific scope of current/credible allegations".

If confirmed, Kavanaugh - an appellate judge and judicial conservative - would replace retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

The letter also says Kavanaugh gave "intemperate, inflammatory" responses and was "discourteous" to senators.

Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans on Tuesday took the extraordinary step of releasing another letter attacking another Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick.

The letter says that in his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Kavanaugh "displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for election to the highest court of the land".

And speaking at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said he "didn't particularly like" the president's remarks, adding, "I would tell him, knock it off". Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations.

McConnell needs at least two of three undecided Republicans, assuming all Senate Democrats oppose Kavanaugh's nomination. "I don't know", he said.

Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic who has said religion is an important part of his life.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., joined at right by Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, speaks with reporters about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh following their weekly policy meetings, at the Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018.

Asked whether Mr Trump's comments would affect her vote, Senator Murkowski told reporters, "I am taking everything into account".

A handful of Republicans and Democrats have not decided whether to support Kavanaugh.

"I just got this text does anyone know what it means?"

President Trump was cheered on by a crowd of Republican faithful in MS yesterday as he mimicked Dr Ford's responses to questions at last week's Senate hearing and joked about her inability to remember details surrounding the night of her alleged attack. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

He said on Wednesday: "I'm going to read whatever they've got".

Imitating Ford, he added, "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember".

Pressed by the interviewer, who called Trump's remarks a "personal, degrading attack", Graham then quoted a line infamously used by Clinton adviser James Carville about Paula Jones, who accused Clinton of sexual harassment as governor of Arkansas: "Drag a hundred dollars through a trailer park and there's no telling what you'll find", Carville said in 1997.

Ford told the committee that she was "100 percent" certain that Kavanaugh was her attacker. In that light, they say it can't be called an investigation.

Kavanaugh has angrily denied the allegations.

A defiant Kavanaugh came out with guns blazing on Thursday, insisting the assault never happened, accusing Democrats of destroying his reputation and condemning his confirmation battle as a "national disgrace".
