Trump, at a wild press conference on Wednesday, vacillated between casting doubt on Ford's accusations, testifying to Kavanaugh's sterling reputation and intellect, blasting Democrats as con artists, and finally saying he could be convinced Ford was telling the truth during the hearing.

Morning Consult also found that GOP support for Trump dropped alongside support for his Supreme Court pick, falling by 16 points since a similar poll last week. Kavanaugh has denied those claims as well.

On Thursday, a Marine F-35B fighter carried out the first combat airstrike by the American version of the costly fighter. Global sales are projected at more that 3,000 aircraft, and the programme was likely to last for some 30 to 40 years.

"They didn't know anything", he said, apparently referring to the first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted him when they were both in high school. The author wrote that in 1998 her daughter occasionally socialized with Kavanaugh, who was dating the daughter's friend while he was an attorney working on independent counsel Kenneth Starr's investigation into the Clinton White House. Kavanaugh was nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy on the court left by retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. Kavanaughhas repeatedly denied the accusation and Ford has stood by her allegations. He also took aim at Senate Democrats, calling the entire ordeal "a big, fat con job". Who wouldn't be scared to get up and have to talk about these incredibly private things in such an incredibly public way to strangers who have already, many of whom have already said her testimony doesn't really matter to them. He said such character assassinations - if allowed to succeed - will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from serving the nation, and added that he would not be intimidated into withdrawing from the judicial selection process.

Regarding other allegations - some of which have been anonymous - that have come to the committee since Ford came forward, Kavanaugh has called some of them "ridiculous", his supporters tell CNN.

Depending on how the hearing goes, the Senate committee could vote on Kavanaugh's nomination as early as Friday, but it could be delayed.
