Senate Democrats suggested in a new letter Wednesday to the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that past Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh include evidence of inappropriate behavior - claims quickly refuted by Republicans as "baseless innuendo".
The letter said that Democrats are "limited" in what they can reveal about the investigation due to confidentiality issues, but claimed "there is information in the second tweet that is not accurate".
Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor, has alleged Mr Judge was in the room when a drunken Mr Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the early 1980s.
Addressing thousands of supporters at a MS rally, Trump gave his own re-enactment of Ford's responses to questions at last week's Senate hearing where she testified that Kavanaugh assaulted her. She would not say if they would affect her vote.
Imitating Ford's testimony, Trump, who was himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, said: "What neighbourhood was it in?" 'I don't know.' Where's the house? 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it?
"I had one beer, right?" "That's the only thing I remember".
"There is no time and no place for remarks like that, but to discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right". Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who forced the committee's hand over the investigation, spoke with Today on Wednesday morning where he called the remarks "kind of appalling".
Trump's commentary has not been received well by Republican lawmakers, including Sen. "Wholly inappropriate and entirely unacceptable" chimed in Murkowski.
Trump ordered the FBI investigation last Friday, limiting its duration to no more than a week.
The lack of interviews raises "serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation and begs the question: what other restrictions has the White House placed on the FBI?" "I believe she purposely designed her demeanor, her voice, her posture to make it look like she was a child to get sympathy".
There's one stipulation though: only one copy of report is being made available to the senators and each party will take turns viewing the document in one-long increments, Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (IL) told The Hill.

Trump defends Kavanaugh, says he is keeping an open mind to developments
The true test for Flake would come once the full Senate votes on the Kavanaugh nomination in the coming days, Walsh said. It's not now clear whether the Republican leadership has secured enough votes to ensure Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.
"Sometimes people are accused of something they didn't do", Graham said.
Opposition among Americans to Kavanaugh has increased since last week's hearing, Reuters/Ipsos polling data showed on Wednesday.
"The President was stating the facts", Ms Sanders said.
Disquiet about the President's intervention was not limited to those Republican senators who are undecided about Kavanaugh.
Trump spent much of the rally, however, lamenting the treatment of Kavanaugh by Democrats, whose attacks, he said, had taken their toll on the judge's family. Trump said when he goes to political rallies, which are organized by Republicans, he sees that voters are angry at the "vicious and despicable" way Democrats are treating his nominee.
At a White House briefing, Trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders defended his remarks in MS and said he was not concerned the comments may have jeopardized the votes of key senators.
"BK's lies about binge drinking are false exculpatory statements created to undermine Ford's 100% certain I.D. of him as her attacker".
West Virginia Senator Shelley Moore Capito - like Ford, a graduate of the Holton-Arms School - has said she supports Kavanaugh.
He also lamented the cost of Ford's allegations to Kavanaugh and insinuated that she was part of a conspiracy by the Democrats to discredit him.
Nonetheless, in a memo sent by Ms Mitchell, she said it was her view that no "reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee".
