In this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent.

But an archived version of the page lists him as a Samuel Williston Lecturer on Law, who was scheduled to teach a course called "The Supreme Court since 2005" for the winter 2019 semester.

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.

Not so, argued Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, contending the Democrats are simply looking to "move the goalposts" to prevent Kavanaugh's confirmation.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue just weeks before November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake. Some of Trump's fellow Republicans fear that pushing ahead with confirmation could alienate women voters, while Democrats seek to capitalize.

McConnell said that Democrats continue to try to "move the goal posts" on Kavanaugh's confirmation and predicted they would be unsatisfied when the Federal Bureau of Investigation completes its work this week.

Democrats have seized most recently on Kavanaugh's indignant, emotional testimony before the Judiciary Committee to question whether he has the temperament for a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court.

"You could be somebody that was flawless their entire life and someone could accuse you of something", Trump said.

She told CBS This Morning on Tuesday that California college professor Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh lacks corroboration.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? "That's the only thing I remember", Trump said in imitation of Ford's testimony. A man's life is shattered'.

Dudley denied the allegations, according to the report, "and Mr. Kavanaugh didn't (want) to say if he threw the ice or not".

A 1985 altercation in a CT bar that allegedly involved Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh led to the arrest of one of his close friends at Yale, a copy of an unredacted police report on the incident provided to CNN Tuesday shows.

President Trump continued his defense Tuesday of his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying "it's a very scary time for young men in America" because of the possibility of false accusations.

"What you'll have at the very end - I'm expecting by about Thursday - they're going to be taking all those reports, making one report, and providing [what's] like an executive summary that's going to summarize the findings", Gomez said. But he also said the judge's interactions with members of the Judiciary Committee were "sharp and partisan and that concerns me".

Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone at the hearing.

Heitkamp, meanwhile, noted that Trump himself called for a "broader" FBI investigation into the allegations. I want to say those people ... they are so in favor of Judge Kavanaugh. "I graduated from high school and while I did not drink, I saw a lot of people drinking", he said.

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. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Monday, giving a hint of the Democrats' strategy. I don't know! But I had one beer. A spokesman for McConnell declined to clarify whether McConnell was referring to procedural votes or a final vote on confirming Kavanaugh.

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, says Kavanaugh seems willing to mislead senators about matters big and small to ensure his confirmation. Ford identified Judge as a witness to the alleged assault.

Judge has denied Ford's allegations.

Kavanaugh and Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, where they answered questions about the allegations.

A third claim - from Julia Swetnick, who is represented by attorney Michael Avenatti - accuses Kavanaugh of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women at parties in the early 1980s. Senate Republicans have privately expressed similar sentiments.

Ford said Kavanaugh tried to remove her clothes and held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming.
