Late last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard from both Kavanaugh, and Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her down on a bed and groped her against her will at a high school gathering in 1982.

She declined to say exactly when it ended or what Judge was asked. She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed. He was treated at a hospital, The Times reported.

"We want Kavanaugh, we want Kavanaugh", the crowd chanted. But he says anew that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.

The altercation is said to have happened in a bar called Demery's that closed in 1994.

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes, including Republican Sens.

The FBI investigation was launched at the urging of Republican Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Flake and Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.

Flake, meanwhile, on Tuesday said senators have to give Kavanaugh some leeway for his combative testimony las week, given the nature of the accusations against him.

Kavanaugh has denied the accusations by Ford and Ramirez and those by a third woman, Julie Swetnick, who has alleged she was victimized at a party attended by Kavanaugh friends. Kavanaugh denies that as well.

McConnell has denounced Democrats, who have questioned Kavanaugh's truthfulness and temperament, for hurling "mud and muck" at the judge.

According to the police report, the scuffle occurred during the future Supreme Court nominee's junior year at Yale, when he allegedly threw some ice at a guy who was upset that Kavanaugh and his crew were staring at him.

Mr Ludington made the allegations in a statement published on Sunday. In one notable exchange, he snapped at Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., "Have you?"

Mr Schumer said Mr Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his confirmation.

The bar fight report comes amid Kavanaugh's testimony in which he challenged claims that suggested he was a "sloppy drunk".

The president, who has been active in campaigning for Republican candidates, said he sees an intensity of support for Judge Kavanaugh. Mr McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Mr Kavanaugh this week.
