Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations 'scary time' for men falsely accused

The strategy came as the FBI conducts a limited investigation into allegations of sexual assault by Kavanaugh but with great uncertainty about whether the probe will unearth anything conclusive by the end of the week, when Republicans are pressing for a vote. "I've never seen a judicial nominee like this. I can tell you that".

"It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump said.

But Democrats said that report isn't good enough.

Trump and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders have dismissed Woodward's book as a work of fiction.

Schumer said that the results of the FBI investigation "should be released publicly with any personal information redacted", and called on the White House to "publicly release the directive to the FBI so we can clear up once and for all the scope of their background check investigation".

Deborah Ramirez, who said Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party, is also understood to have now been interviewed.

"I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he said. And the potential of perjury itself is relevant to the claims of sexual assault because if it is true Kavanaugh has lied to the committee - as it certainly appears he has - then his denials of his accusers' claims should be viewed as less credible.

"I want to see what happens with the FBI", Trump told reporters at the White House before he left on a visit to Philadelphia. Mr Kavanaugh denies that as well.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college.

A spokesman for McConnell noted that the agreement with Flake and other swing senators was to have a procedural vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by Friday, so the majority leader would have to take steps to tee up that vote on Wednesday.

Even if the Federal Bureau of Investigation quickly wraps up, the Senate's procedural process would need to start up within the next couple of days for a final vote to come by the end of the week.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a swing vote on the nomination, refused to be drawn into the issue of Kavanaugh's credibility or the timing of an eventual vote on Tuesday. But when none of these tactics worked - when Judge Kavanaugh demonstrated his widely-acknowledged brilliance, open-mindedness, and collegiality at his confirmation hearings - some chose a darker road. "I think its contents need to be made available to the American people".

Trump's comments echoed remarks his son Donald Trump Jr. made in an interview with the Daily Mail on Monday, when he was asked if he is more afraid for his sons or his daughters in the wake of the reaction to the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said each senator will get a copy of the FBI's report on its investigation.

The FBI will also question Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.
