The White House aides and allies said Tuesday that they remained optimistic Kavanaugh would be confirmed but frustrated with the delay on a vote.

He added, "This entire thing makes me want to heave".

The revised guidance is aimed at promoting an investigation that could tamp down Democratic criticism and satisfy on-the-fence Republicans about its thoroughness and fairness while also ensuring a fixed deadline to prevent the probe from becoming open-ended and spanning weeks. Kavanaugh has denied all allegations against him.

Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court has been delayed as the FBI conducts an investigation into allegations made by three women that he sexually assaulted them or others decades ago. Senate Republicans have delayed votes on his confirmation while the FBI investigates the claims.

Although the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday approved Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, it was conditional on a new inquiry into what it said were the "credible allegations" facing him. She declined to elaborate.

The president's comments were in response to questions about an interview the Daily Mail released with his son Donald Trump Jr.

Schumer said that to assert that Ford went public with her allegation for political reasons is "so unfair, is so wrong". He said he meant to do that, so he could "tell the full details of my story".

The report says 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino told police that Kavanaugh threw ice at him for "some unknown reason". Kavanaugh parried a question from Sen.

Ford, a professor in California, has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly assaulting her while both were teenagers in Maryland in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh strongly denies the accusation, but President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account.

Kavanaugh has denied that allegation. First, back in June, Democrats tried to argue the Senate shouldn't confirm a Supreme Court justice in any even-numbered year.

Democrats, meanwhile, were raising new questions about the truthfulness of Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the Senate, shifting tactics against President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee as they await the results of the FBI's background investigation. Concerns have been raised that the investigation is not serious enough, as The New Yorker reported that several individuals hoping to give information to the FBI had trouble even reaching agents.

Democrats are also questioning Mr Kavanaugh's honesty, particularly over statements he made about his drinking in high school and college after a former classmate at Yale said he was a "frequent, heavy drinker".

Ludington, who now teaches at North Carolina State University, has said he was present for the incident described in the police report.
