Mr. Trump made extensive comments about his nominee in a press conference that was, at first, focused on a new trade agreement reached with Canada and Mexico. "I want it to be quickly, because it's unfair to the family and to the judge".
The investigators will compile information about Mr Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Mr Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.
Republicans later called the White House to discuss the scope of the probe, the person said.
"The agreement will allow greater United States access to Canada's dairy market and addresses Canadian concerns about potential auto tariffs, the sources said".
The same Quinnipiac poll found that while a narrow plurality believe Kavanaugh "is the target of a politically motivated smear campaign", a plurality also believed Ford's claims over his.
Trump said he does not think Kavanaugh is vulnerable in that regard.
"A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove", Mitchell explained.
Rachel Mitchellwrites in a memo sent to Senate Republicans that she does not believe a "reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee". Keyser, however, has told the Judiciary Committee that she believes Ford's account. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
"I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", Kavanaugh said late last week.

In a statement issued to the New York Times, Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's who claims they frequently drank together, said he is "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale". A slim majority of white voters, 51 percent, say Kavanaugh should be confirmed, while 81 percent of black voters and 65 percent of Hispanic voters say he should be rejected.
Early indications were that the others identified as being at the house where Blasey said the incident occurred could add no more to their initial accounts that they had no memory of the event, one that Kavanaugh has said never occurred. "But about half of voters say Judge Brett Kavanaugh is the target of a smear campaign", said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the QU poll.

Trump also said Kavanaugh should be interviewed by the FBI if it helps lawmakers make a decision on his nomination, though he repeatedly deferred to the Senate as the body in charge of the scope of the investigation.
President Trump subsequently ordered the FBI to undertake a "supplemental investigation" to Kavanaugh's routine background check that would be limited to credible allegations of sexual assault. "There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today".
The FBI has begun investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by an intoxicated Kavanaugh in high school and college, allegations the appeals court judge flatly denies. Trump said: "I don't think so. It's about how does it affect you", said Graham.
Swetnick's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said on Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but is willing to fully cooperate with investigators. In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.
Whatever is the case, the separation of powers dictates that the president, not Congress, must order the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh. Flake announced he would be voting "Yes" on Kavanaugh only to qualify his position by calling for a week-long delay on the Senate floor vote in the name of repairing the divided country. Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote if the Senate is evenly split.
