But Republicans moved forward with plans for a key procedural vote on Friday and a final vote on Saturday on confirming the conservative federal appeals judge for a lifetime job on the top USA court.

President Donald Trump has defended his nominee and criticized the way the nomination has proceeded.

White House spokesman Raj Shah says senators "have been given ample time to review this seventh background investigation" into Kavanaugh, who denies accusations of sexual misconduct when he was in high school and college. Kavanaugh has said stories of bad behaviour while drinking are exaggerated. Senators were allowed to take notes but not remove them from the room, he said.
