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

Senate Democrats criticised the White House for what they said was a limited FBI investigation of Mr Kavanaugh.

Speaking Tuesday night at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi, Trump attacked the credibility of Ford, who last week testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her during a high school party in Maryland more than 30 years ago.

Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic who has said religion is an important part of his life. If it passes, the Senate expects to vote on his final confirmation on Saturday. Three hundred similar gatherings took place across the country - according to the organizers - including a wide number of groups like the Women's March, ACLU and Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

As police started to empty the Senate office building's atrium, those protesters willing to be arrested sat down and began loudly chanting.

Anderson is among those who has asserted that the FBI's Kavanaugh-related investigation didn't go far enough, telling Vanity Fair that as he sees it, Wray is in a "tough spot".

There was another protest in front of Trump Tower in New York City. Their votes will likely decide whether he is confirmed. Members of the Senate, controlled 51-49 by Trump's fellow Republicans, must now decide whether to vote to confirm him after the extraordinary almost nine-hour-long hearing.

"There's nothing in it that we didn't already know", Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa said Thursday as senators are viewing the report in private.

The suspect has been identified as William Clyde Allen III, of Logan, Utah, said attorney's office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch. A man has been arrested after packages suspected to contain the poison ricin were sent to the Pentagon and President Trump.

Earlier on Thursday, a pair of undeclared Republican senators accepted a confidential new Federal Bureau of Investigation report into sex-abuse allegations against Mr Kavanaugh as "thorough", bolstering Republican hopes for confirmation as the Senate plunged toward showdown votes.

Ramirez's attorney also said on Thursday that she had given investigators the names of a number of people from her college days who she said could corroborate allegations she has made against Kavanaugh. Ted Cruz was forced to leave a restaurant last week and said another senator "reported having protesters physically block his auto door".

Tensions have been high at the Capitol with opponents of Kavanaugh, including survivors of sexual assault, confronting senators in the halls and holding vigil across the street at the Supreme Court. Hatch, who supports Kavanaugh, refused to take the paper and kept walking as the women shouted questions at him and asked why he was ignoring them.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has admitted to saying some things he should not have during a Senate hearing last week, a tacit acknowledgement of the questions being raised about his conduct and emotions as he seeks confirmation to the Supreme Court. Senate Democrats say the investigation is incomplete. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine.

McConnell was so intent on that 5-4 goal that he blocked former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee. Judge has said he did not recall the events described by Ford and that he never saw Kavanaugh act in the manner that she describes.

Sen. Joe Manchin, the only Democratic senator undecided, said he had to leave the SCIF to make room for Republicans and would return Friday morning to finish reading the report.

As Trump took the stage, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Kavanaugh in which he sought to assuage the concerns of senators - and many Americans - who anxious that his partisan-infused testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee a week ago suggested that he might not be impartial from the bench.
