Late Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell set a threshold vote for Friday on Kavanaugh's nomination, moving the Senate toward a potential confirmation roll call over the weekend. Senators are not supposed to divulge the contents of the agency's background reports. Unusually large numbers of Capitol Hill Police officers restricted movements in corridors and formed wedges around senators walking through hallways.
It was part of extensive renovation works on the couple's California home, which also included a new bathroom.
"Sometimes people are accused of something they didn't do", Graham said.
Flake told NBC's "Today" show that "there's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally".
"All of us need to keep in mind there's a few people that are on the fence right now".
Flake has clashed repeatedly with Trump over his behaviour and is retiring at year's end.
And Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine who caucuses with Democrats, said on CNN's "New Day" that Trump's comments "made me feel sort of sick".
President Donald Trump gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week to look into the matter and said publicly that the law enforcement agency had free rein.
"Dr. Ford has struggled to recall important events relating to her allegations, and her testimony regarding recent events raises further questions about her memory", Mitchell concluded. "But I had one beer that's the only thing I remember"'.
President Donald Trump incredibly managed to dip to a new low on Tuesday night, while holding a rally in Southaven, Mississippi where he openly mocked alleged sexual assault survivor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday echoed the president's newly aggressive approach.
The president seemed to suggest she did not know on what floor of the property the alleged attack had occurred, but Prof Ford told senators she remembered being pushed into a bedroom on the upstairs level.
Nonetheless, in a memo sent by Ms Mitchell, she said it was her view that no "reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee".
Ford's lawyers said it is "inconceivable" that the FBI could conclude its investigation, which could happen as early as Wednesday, without interviewing either her, Kavanaugh or all of the other witnesses whose names she has provided. But background checks do not traditionally contain investigators' conclusions about who they believe is credible.
In contrast to the president's enthusiasm, a coalition of US Christian churches with 40 million worshippers has urged Mr Kavanaugh to withdraw his nomination.
But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fuelled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.
Kennedy said that if all findings can not be released, he'dsupportan objective summary of the report to be shared to avoid senators leaking "selected versions that advance their position".
But Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Kavanaugh could be excused for showing passion.
"There is no chance in the world that they're going to scare us out of doing our duty", he said.
McConnell, a Republican, filed a petition for a so-called cloture vote, which if successful would limit debate on the Kavanaugh nomination and start the clock ticking on a final 30-hour waiting period before the Senate could vote to confirm the nominee.
Democrat Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader, called on Trump to apologize.
Disquiet about the President's intervention was not limited to those Republican senators who are undecided about Kavanaugh.
