The outgoing senator was a friend and fan of Kavanaugh's until the sexual misconduct allegations became public.

"Each appointment to our nation's highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote", Carlson told the committee, which was expected to vote on the nomination Friday.

After Flake released that statement, a woman who identified herself as a survivor of sexual assault confronted him on an elevator on Capitol Hill. On the Senate floor Wednesday, he indicated that his mind was not made up. He said: "I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process".

Other senators backed Senator Flake's request, including Republicans Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, as well as Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who has been viewed as a possible vote in favour of Kavanaugh.

But they ― it's a con job by the Democrats.

Donnelly voted in favor of President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, now-Justice Neil Gorsuch, while Tester opposed him. Kamala Harris told Refinery29 that the comment made it clear Kavanaugh is "a political operative" and showed "who he really is".

We will be covering events as they unfold during the day.

Heitkamp also voted Gorsuch onto the Supreme Court last year and faces an uphill election in her home state this year.

The president also expressed confidence in the confirmation process as an 11th-hour demand from a key Republican senator again threatened to derail the timeline for a Senate vote.

Despite skepticism over these two men, Kavanaugh himself and many on the right have granted that someone else may have tried to rape Ford, and she has misidentified or misremembered her attacker. "They're giving the women a major chance to speak".
