Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said each senator will get a copy of the FBI's report on its investigation. Kavanaugh, whose Senate confirmation has been thrown into doubt by the accusations, has denied the claims by all three women.
Flake voted to approve Kavanaugh in the committee's vote on Friday that sent the nomination to the full Senate, but only after he requested that the FBI conduct an investigation of the sexual misconduct allegations.
The classmate, Kerry Berchem, prepared a memo about the text messages and attempted to submit them to the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27 following Kavanaugh's testimony and that of Christine Blasey Ford, according to NBC News, which obtained a copy of the memo.
NBC News reported that one of the classmates, Kerry Berchem, told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that the texts showed Mr Kavanaugh "and/or" his friends "may have initiated an anticipatory narrative" to "conceal or discredit" Deborah Ramirez as early as July - two months before the New Yorker story was published.
Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted Tuesday to an NBC News report that Brett Kavanaugh attempted to refute sexual assault claims made by accuser Deborah Ramirez before they were made public.
Swetnick, who is represented by Michael Avenatti, has alleged that Judge and Kavanaugh were present at a party in the early 1980s where, she says, she was gang-raped.
Kavanaugh and Judge have also denied Swetnick's allegations. "I don't think this one will either", he said.
Mr Kavanaugh has denied that allegation.
What Jose Mourinho told 'stunned' Paul Pogba when he stripped vice-captaincy
Mourinho has been openly critical of his star midfielder in recent times, saying that his work rate isn't up to standard.
Several other swing vote senators joined Flake in holding up the vote.
But just a few hours later, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen.
Trump also said in response to a reporter's question that it "would not be acceptable" if Kavanaugh had lied to Congress during his testimony. The email says, "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered".
The White House insisted it was not "micromanaging" the new one-week review of Kavanaugh's background but some Democratic lawmakers claimed the White House was keeping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses.
That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tiebreaking vote.Trump said he believed Kavanaugh did not lie during his Judiciary Committee testimony about the extent of his drinking in high school and college.
What else did President Trump say?
"Accusing Democrats of needlessly delaying a Supreme Court nomination is galling, is hypocritical, coming from a leader who delayed the nomination of a Supreme Court justice for over 300 days until his party had a chance to win the White House", Schumer said.
Chris Dudley and Dan Murphy said they had never seen the nominee black out at college or behave inappropriately with women.
Trump said he will talk "later" this week with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but expressed trepidation that meeting him before the Kavanaugh nomination is settled could interrupt the process.
