Democrats and Republicans have argued about whether a week is enough time to carry out a thorough investigation.
Pressley, a city councilor who is running unopposed to represent half of Boston in Congress, said in a statement that the groping allegations against Kavanaugh are "credible and deeply disturbing", and that she'll continue to oppose the nominee. Keyser, however, has told the Judiciary Committee that she believes Ford's account.
Charles Ludington, a former Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's, came forward Sunday in a statement saying he's "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".
"I just knew that we couldn't move forward, that I couldn't move forward without hitting the pause button", Flake said. At a meeting in his Capitol office, he warned Flake, Collins and others that another week would only allow time for opponents to churn up more trouble for Kavanaugh while prolonging an ordeal for the nominee and his family.
The White House had no immediate comment about Ludington's accusations.
"There is no clear standard of proof for allegations made during the Senate's confirmation process", Mitchell wrote in the memo.
"None of us wanted to look as if the court couldn't do its job", Justice Elena Kagan said Thursday.
"No, not a chance", Flake said. "The FBI is not tasked to do that".
Ranking member U.S. Sen. "We will urge senators from across the country to do what is right, and vote to reject Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court".
"I think that will be the scope of it. It's about how does it affect you", said Graham. However, the polygraph notes also have discrepancies when compared to Ford's letter.
Ludington said he felt it was his civic duty to tell of his experience drinking with Kavanaugh, and said in his statement he is going to take his information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Provided the new investigation doesn't turn up damaging information, the inquiry could ultimately make it easier for uncertain Republicans to back Kavanaugh as soon as this week.
Coons described himself as "hugely distraught" when a reporter told him outside the hearing room that Flake had chose to vote for Kavanaugh.
Collins and Flake spoke throughout the weekend.
Sen. Jeff Flake: No, no. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, said McConnell's spokesman Don Stewart.
He described Democratic lawmakers as "mean obstructionists, mean resistors" and cited an unnamed poll that showed West Virginia voters favor Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.
On Sunday, he tweeted again, turning the focus to Democrats. She said she managed to escape after Judge jumped on them, sending them tumbling and giving her an opportunity to get out of the room.
Trump initially opposed such an investigation as allegations began mounting but relented and ordered one on Friday.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican challenging Mr. Nelson for the Senate seat, said the Democrat's announcement wasn't a surprise.
"They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do". He added: "And hopefully at the conclusion, everything will be fine". Swetnick is one of the women who has publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. He denies all the claims.
Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for a third Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick, said Sunday his client has not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She said she was there to support survivors of sexual assault and to denounce Kavanaugh.
