Mark Judge's lawyer says he was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation

"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law, and that obstructive, inappropriate behavior will be rewarded", the letter reads.

The president repeatedly said in response to questions about his top court pick that he was waiting to see what would come out of the FBI investigation and did not want to "interrupt" anything.

In a nation where young black men are incarcerated at a rate five times those of their white counterparts, the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" in criminal proceedings may ring hollow. The Post said the probe would now encompass the allegations of a third Kavanaugh accuser but wouldn't take an unfettered look at Kavanaugh's drinking or as a young man or examine the veracity of his statements about his drinking at the Senate Judicary Committee hearing last week.

[Ludington] said that the altercation happened after a UB40 concert on September 25, when he and a group of people went to Demery's and were drinking pints.

'I had one beer!' Trump told the noisy crowd, mocking Ford's testimony that she can't remember the date or location of the alleged attack, but was sure that she had only consumed one beer. But he also said Senate Republicans are determining the parameters of the investigation and "ultimately, they're making the judgment".

She replied: "I'm not Mr. President, thank you.", to which he said: "That's okay".

Mr Trump's Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

The FBI has initiated its investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh at the direction of the White House after Flake last week - with the backing of Murkowski and Collins - called for a delay in consideration of the nomination so that the FBI could undertake a review.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the chamber would vote this week on Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge in Washington. Some Republicans fear that pushing ahead with confirmation would alienate women voters, while Democrats seek to capitalize.

As the sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Kavanaugh remain stubbornly uncorroborated, the Democratic effort to derail his Supreme Court nomination has switched gears to more subjective criticisms of his temperament and descriptions of his youthful partying. She said, "I'm waiting to see what the results are".

"Hopefully, they'll have a vote by the end of the week and it will be a positive vote, but it will be dependent on what comes back from the FBI", Trump said.

"Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered", Associate Dean and Dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs, Catherine Claypoole, wrote in an email, according to the Crimson. Judge has previously denied any memory of such an incident. 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.

President Trump ordered the inquiry on Friday at the request of a Senate committee.

■In the past few days, as the FBI has begun its investigation, new allegations have surfaced in the media, including one from Chad Ludington, one of Kavanaugh's classmates and a member of the Yale basketball team.

On Monday night Donald Trump attracted a great deal of controversy for the manner in which he spoke to a female report during a press conference.
