White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on morning talk shows that the "process could take place on Thursday", when Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has separately accused him of assaulting her in high school, are scheduled to testify.

Schumer reiterated his call for an FBI background investigation of Ford's allegations.

They want whatever. "So when I see it, I view it differently then somebody sitting home watching television, where they say, 'Oh, Judge Kavanaugh this or that.' It has happened to me many times, " he added.

Appearing to offer support for the deputy attorney general, Trump said Rosenstein told him that he did not discuss invoking the 25th Amendment a year ago while offering to wear a wire to gather evidence of the president's erratic behavior following the abrupt dismissal of FBI Director James Comey.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represents porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against Trump, has said that another Kavanaugh accuser will come forward in the next day or so.

The president said he hoped that Kavanaugh's nomination would soon be "settled up and solved" with the judge getting appointed to Supreme Court.

"And they know it's a big, fat con job", he continued.

He said that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh set a different standard by his enemies because he was nominated to the Supreme Court.

Prof Ford's lawyers have told U.S. media she has been receiving death threats and harassment since coming forward to accuse Judge Kavanaugh.

CNN's Jim Acosta - no stranger to seeking the spotlight himself in his self-appointed role as Trump antagonist asked him if, after he was done, whether the president might call on a female reporter. Kavanaugh has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh said. "And they go into a room, and I guarantee you, they laugh like hell at what they pulled off on you and on the public".

Behind the scenes, Trump has sought to take the reins of the narrative, disappointed that neither Kavanaugh nor congressional Republicans have been able to put the allegations to rest. The Fake News just doesn't understand, which is why he has to keep reminding everyone.

Rosenstein was summoned to the White House on Monday, three days after The New York Times reported that the deputy attorney general past year discussed seeking the president's removal from office and proposed wearing a recording device in encounters with the president. He defended his decision to meet again with North Korean despot Kim Jong Un, while at the same time launching a new attack on Canada, a longtime USA ally.

"We're not getting along at all with their negotiators", Trump said, warning that the United States would soon go after Canadian auto imports.

"Wouldn't make any difference to me". "Not to the American people".

"People want fame. They want money".

After Trump's remarks in NY on Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee released transcripts that revealed the panel also questioned Kavanaugh about two other accusations that were previously unknown.
