The credit card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments.

U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel brought a striking visual aid - a wire coat hanger - to a briefing for reporters in Washington, D.C., as a way of dramatizing the importance of abortion rights in the debate over whether Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.

The letter notes that Kavanaugh has hired more women than men as law clerks, and has sent 84 per cent of them to clerkships at the Supreme Court.

Grassley, whose committee will first consider Kavanaugh's nomination, told Fox Business today that his Tuesday meeting with Kavanaugh left him with the impression of "a person that's well-versed in the law, very respected by other judges, quite - I should say great faith to interpreting the law, not stretching the law, following congressional intent".

Trump is backing McCaskill's front-runner Republican challenger, Attorney General Josh Hawley. Tammy Baldwin announced Thursday in a statement posted to Facebook that she doesn't believe President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is right for the country or Wisconsin.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a potential presidential candidate, said this week that senators should press Kavanaugh to recuse himself from matters pertaining to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, which has reached deep into Trump's inner circle.

"I will do extensive research, consult with a lot of people, do an in-depth personal interview and watch the hearings", Collins said.

Democratic unity is far from a foregone conclusion.

The letter comes as his backers try to head off tough questions Kavanaugh is likely to face on issues like abortion and gay rights.

Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir said that "Baldwin's obstruction on Judge Kavanaugh's appointment is proof that she'd rather stand with her liberal activist San Francisco donors than uphold the Constitution. Stop playing political games and help us #StopKavanaugh". "We call it an attempt to bork the nominee", the Kentucky Republican said during a speech on the Senate floor, The Hill reported. "Some things are worth fighting for", Fallon said.
