In a separate statement on Twitter, John Clune, who represents another accuser, Deborah Ramirez, said Federal Bureau of Investigation agents interviewed her on Sunday and accepted a list of more than 20 witnesses who can support her allegations.

At a rally later in Southaven, Mississippi, Mr Trump mocked last week's Senate testimony by Prof Christine Blasey Ford, without mentioning her by name.

"Well, 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 added.

Clune said he is concerned that the bureau "is not conducting - or not being permitted to conduct - a serious investigation". Ford has alleged that Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her.

The president told reporters on Monday: "The FBI should interview anybody that they want within reason, but you have to say within reason". The official revealed the private conversations only on condition of anonymity. 'I don't remember.' How did you get there?

He went on: "They should also be guided, and I'm being guided, by what the senators are looking for".

Leaning: The local pressure is likely weighing on her decision, but Murkowski has a history of being tight-lipped until she votes.

Controversy surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination ahead of November midterm elections - in which Republicans are facing an uphill battle to keep control of Congress - is threatening to derail Trump's push to get a conservative majority on the Supreme Court before the vote.

Republicans have insinuated that Ford mistook Kavanaugh's identity. Chuck Grassley repeated his request for notes from Ford's therapy sessions, details of her communications with The Washington Post and any recordings of her taking a lie detector test. He has previously said he doesn't recall the events recounted by Ford.

The President said Tuesday night that Kavanaugh's "life is in tatters". Leahy's office didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Tuesday. The outlet reported that the White House deemed an interview with Ford unnecessary since she had already testified under oath that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers. "I don't know", Trump lied.




This would potentially clear the way for a final Senate vote on his confirmation within days. She also told the Senate committee that Judge appeared nervous when she encountered him a few weeks later at the grocery story where he worked. Smyth and Leland Keyser. She said she broke free when Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them and sent them tumbling off the bed.

The allegations against Kavanaugh - including sexual assault and exposing himself to a young woman in college - have sparked the latest reckoning in America about sexual assault and men's treatment of women, bringing the #MeToo movement back to the fore. While Flake said Kavanaugh deserves some leeway given what he and his family been through, he said, "We can't have this on the court". She is represented by Michael Avenatti, whom McConnell called a "tabloid lawyer". Just yesterday Trump was in Tennessee supporting GOP candidates after signing a three-way trade deal with Canada and Mexico that will replace the NAFTA agreement. He demanded that attorneys for Ford turn over her therapist notes and other key materials, and suggested she was less than truthful about her experience with polygraph examinations during the hearing.

"We can't have this on the court".

"Although we do not know the status of the investigation, we are not aware of the FBI affirmatively reaching out to any of those witnesses", Clune said in a tweeted statement.

Quoting an unnamed senior U.S. official, NBC reported that the FBI's witness list does not include Julie Swetnick, the third accuser to come forward with a claim against Mr Kavanaugh.

He even raised questions about the drinking habits of Vermont Sen.

Kavanaugh was questioned after the 1985 altercation but wasn't arrested.

Mr Cozzolino said he then got hit on the ear with a glass.

On Tuesday, while speaking with reporters at the White House, he acknowledged the rising suspicions about whether Kavanaugh had been truthful to senators on questions about his high school and college-age drinking habits.
