The last undecided Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, said while leaving the secure room on Thursday that he would have to come back on Friday because he'd been kicked out so Republicans could have their turn. She ignored questions from reporters.

Some protesters, many dressed in black, crowded into the Hart Senate Office Building after rallying in front of the Supreme Court on a sunny, warm autumn day.

A spokeswoman for Collins declined to comment on her security detail.

A handful of Republicans and Democrats have not decided whether to support Kavanaugh. Personal information about some lawmakers also has been released online. U.S. Capitol Police said 302 were arrested - among them comedian Amy Schumer, a distant relative of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Jackson Cosko, 27, of Washington, was charged with making public restricted personal information, unauthorized access of a government computer and other crimes. Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire from January 2017 to May 2018 as a legislative correspondent/systems administrator. The spokesman did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters.

If Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate in a vote planned for Saturday, Trump will have succeeded in placing his second justice on the top US court and fulfilled his pledge to solidify its conservative majority. Ted Cruz was forced to leave a restaurant last week and said another senator "reported having protesters physically block his vehicle door". See below for the most powerful scenes from the protest.

"There is no chance in the world they're going to scare us out of doing our duty", McConnell said.

No Republicans have said they will vote against Kavanaugh, although four have not committed to supporting him.

When asked whether there was anything in the FBI supplemental background investigation that proves allegations against Kavanaugh, the Republican senator said there is "absolutely no corroboration". That is because I forcefully and passionately denied the allegation against me.

At the MS rally, Trump also turned his ire on Julie Swetnick, who claims Kavanaugh took part in efforts at parties during high school to get girls intoxicated so that groups of boys could have sex with them.

"People have been acting out in ways that really is inappropriate", Corker said Wednesday. (Watch it here at News2Share's Facebook page.) Barbara broke down halfway through the speech and was comforted by a protester that took the stage as people cheered "We love you". "People are resentful and angry".

Kavanaugh is a Roman Catholic who has said religion is an important part of his life.

President Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony
Republicans and Democrats are fighting back and forth in the Senate over the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation. Opposition among Americans to Kavanaugh has increased since last week's hearing, Reuters/Ipsos polling data showed on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, two women approached Sen.

"My hearing testimony was forceful and passionate", Kavanaugh wrote.

The women declined to give their names to a reporter who witnessed the exchange. However, the court derives some democratic legitimacy from each justice being nominated by an elected president and confirmed by a majority of elected senators. In at least one case, demonstrators appear to have had an effect on the nomination fight. But Republican women, like GOP men, are overwhelmingly sticking with the nominee.

Now the wait it on for the other three key Republican senators to cast their vote.

While Republicans confidently declared that a week-long FBI investigation found nothing to corroborate the allegations against President Donald Trump's court pick, opposition Democrats assailed the latest FBI probe as "incomplete" and constrained by a White House determined to push through the lifetime appointment of the conservative 53-year-old judge.
