South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican who has been critical of Trump but also has the president's ear, said Wednesday at the The Atlantic Festival in Washington that Trump's comments were "not helping" and he should "knock it off", but he also argued that "everything he said is factual".

And despite the reports imminent delivery to the Hill, Democrats continue to raise objections about its credibility - specifically in the absence of Ford and Kavanaugh interviews.

Flake was instrumental last Friday in getting Trump to order an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh, nominated by Trump for a lifetime job on the top USA court.
