"They destroy people, these are really evil people", he said.

The report will review allegations from California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, and from Kavanaugh's Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who says he exposed himself to her at a party when both were freshmen.

"His comments were just plain wrong", Maine's Susan Collins said Wednesday.

Blumenthal told Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "The Situation Room" that "The clarification of that tweet would require me to go into the FBI report, but what that tweet highlights very dramatically and directly is the need for a full investigation, and for the public to know what's in that investigation, which is why it should be made public and why the facts here are really so important". 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

" 'I had one beer!' Right?" he said to supporters at the rally as they cheered and laughed.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican who has been critical of Trump but also has the president's ear, said Wednesday at the The Atlantic Festival in Washington that Trump's comments were "not helping" and he should "knock it off", but he also argued that "everything he said is factual".

The FBI is expected to send Congress a report on its revived sexual harassment investigation of Brett Kavanaugh as soon as Wednesday afternoon, Republican senators said of the pivotal document that could make or break his Supreme Court nomination.


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