  • Brett Kavanaugh said the US Supreme Court

The three were briefed together on the investigation in the secure room senators were using to view the report.

Mr Kavanaugh, 53, now a judge on the powerful District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, has denied the claims. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. Meanwhile, multiple Republicans have said that the document contains no evidence against Kavanaugh.

At senators behest, the FBI investigated and the agency's latest report Thursday did not corroborate "any of the sexual misconduct allegations against" Kavanaugh, said Majority Leader and Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell, according to the Associated Press.

Kavanaugh penned the defense of his performance during last week's Judiciary Committee hearing at which he denied the allegations, made at the same hearing, of a California university professor.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Schumer, D-N.Y., who appeared beside her at a news conference, blamed the White House for the limited scope of the latest probe. And when Wray was serving in the deputy attorney general's office under President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh was a deputy White House counsel.

The Senate Judiciary Committee said lawmakers will review the report before a procedural vote advancing the nomination today.

A reported nine people were interviewed in the FBI's five-day investigation.

"I think it's normal to have the White House set the parameters of a follow-up based on the allegations that have been made and to tell them stick to these allegations, don't go far afield about drinking in college", Swecker said.

Republican leaders are increasingly optimistic about Kavanaugh's chances of confirmation after two undecided Republican senators, Jeff Flake and Susan Collins, gave initial positive reactions to an Federal Bureau of Investigation report looking into the sexual assault allegations.

"I believe Kavanaugh is part of a Big Old Boys club that is going to protect him no matter what", said Angela Trzepkowski, 55, from Delaware.

It is the first time the paper has opposed a Supreme Court nominee since 1987. If that succeeds, a final roll call was expected Saturday as the long, emotional battle over the conservative jurist drew toward its climax.

Inside, the Senate moved closer to a vote on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh is accused of sexually assaulting a woman decades ago when the two were in high school.

Furore over Kavanaugh's nomination has overshadowed next month's midterm elections in which control of Congress by Trump's Republican Party could be at stake.

It followed the FBI's early-morning release of its investigation, which President Donald Trump reluctantly ordered under pressure from a handful of senators.

The North Dakota Republican Party quickly attacked Heitkamp for opposing the nomination, arguing the decision aligns the vulnerable senator with the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

The Kavanaugh impact is much bigger for Democrats and can boost turnout in states with swing Senate and House seats in play.

She testified that a drunken Mr Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth when she screamed.

"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", they said, adding that "those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth".
