Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is "hell-bent on getting this done" this week, one Democrat said. McConnell also revealed that the Senate would receive the FBI's supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh Wednesday night.
"There's no time and no place for remarks like that". "The Senate will vote on this nomination this week".
Asked by reporters about Kavanaugh, McSally said: "Based on the information we have, we're unable to corroborate with any other account what the allegations are".
As lawmakers anticipated the report, three moderate GOP senators who could decide the conservative jurist's fate rebuked President Donald Trump for mocking one accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, by mimicking her responses to questions at last week's dramatic Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
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", Trump repeated multiple times. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs - where was it?
" 'I had one beer!' Right?" he said to supporters at the rally as they cheered and laughed. "That's the only thing I remember". The case is even weaker than "he-said, she-said" because it's complete uncorroborated, she added. "It's kind of appalling".
Collins told reporters: "The president's comments were just plain wrong".
"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", Ford's attorneys wrote.
Sanders also blasted Democrats, accusing them of launching a "full-scale assault on" Kavanaugh's integrity.

President Trump's mocking remarks come amid a protracted and heated confirmation process for Kavanaugh.
Trump limited the investigation to no more than a week.
Key Republican senators have called the White House in the last two days to make clear that they expect a fulsome investigation as the FBI reviews allegations against Kavanaugh.
"President Trump went through a factual rendition that I didn't particularly like and I would tell him to knock it off", Graham said, "You're not helping".
Senators are not meant to reveal what the Federal Bureau of Investigation says, but it remains to be seen whether that secrecy will hold. With Republicans defending majorities in the House and Senate next month, officials cast Trump's visit as an attempt to get ahead of a potentially perilous situation.

"The President was stating the facts", Ms Sanders said. McConnell rejected that request in a letter Wednesday to Schumer, saying Democrats would use it to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Trump did not back away from his comments at the rally, instead attacking Kavanaugh's Democratic critics.
"To discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right".
Dr Ford sat for a polygraph lie detector test in August and answered questions about the alleged attack, which she passed.
