Ludington said Kavanaugh was trying to figure out whether a man at the bar was UB40 lead singer Campbell, who would have been coming from the concert and in his 20s at the time.

Earlier today, US President Donald Trump defended his pick but conceded that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared on Tuesday that he plans to ram through a final vote on Kavanaugh by the end of the week.

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe. "You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something".

Trump said he believed Kavanaugh did not lie during his Judiciary Committee testimony about the extent of his drinking in high school and college.

Garrett's lawyer, William Sullivan, says Garrett has voluntarily cooperated with the FBI's reopened background check of Kavanaugh and has finished his interview.

Hundreds of protesters rallied on Monday at Boston's City Hall where Senator Jeff Flake was speaking at a conference, their chants audible in the distance as the Arizona Republican was asked about his dramatic decision last week to press for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him, but the president also said "speed" was important in the process. "It would - in effect - be appealing the Senate's verdict directly to the American people", the South Carolina Republican said.
