President Donald Trump lamented the safety of "young men" in America, amid an FBI investigation into his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who faces allegations of sexual assault. Grassley said he was reminded of the 1991 testimony of then-Judge Clarence Thomas, who told the committee that the hearing into sexual harassment allegations from Anita Hill amounted to a "high-tech lynching".
The President also hit out at Senate Democrats who questioned the integrity of his Supreme Court nominee. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", Trump said at a White House news conference. And I, at least - and I, myself, heard about that, that she was doing that. "That is a very, very hard standard".
The move marks a shift in tactics against United States president Donald Trump's choice for the highest court in America as all sides await the results of the FBI's background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations.
The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake. Some Republicans fear that pushing ahead with confirmation would alienate women voters, while Democrats seek to capitalize. First, back in June, Democrats tried to argue the Senate shouldn't confirm a Supreme Court justice in any even-numbered year.
Trump complained that men whose behavior is "exemplary" for their entire lives are presumed to be guilty should women accuse them of sexual misconduct. It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman.
The action came days after California college professor Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford testified under oath in a Senate committee hearing Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school in the 1980s.
Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 27 that he had not heard of Ramirez's allegations before they were made public in a New Yorker story published September 23.
"I thought he did very well. Only 113 people have ever served on the Supreme Court, and I believe that we must do our level best to protect its sanctity".

Murkowski told reporters at the Capitol that "it's incumbent on all of us to listen to the information when it comes out". Trump subsequently ordered the investigation.
Appearing at the Forbes Under 30 Summit in Boston, Flake said on Monday that he wants the FBI to conduct a "real investigation" and not one that "just gives us more cover".
"I guess I want to say, 'Thank you, '" Walsh said. "There have been a lot of people over the previous year that have lied to Congress, and to me that would not be acceptable".
Julia Swetnick says she went to house parties attended by Mr Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, where she said he and his friends tried to "spike" girls' drinks.
"This is another part of their moving the goal posts, which is happening at the speed of light at this point", said Carrie Severino, chief counsel for the Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative advocacy group.
He added that based on the new report, the FBI investigation may not be finished this week as previously believed.
Kavanaugh's ability to serve as a neutral judge came under question after his partisan rhetoric during his at times angry, at times tearful Senate testimony in which he blamed his work on Bill Clinton's impeachment for the Democrats' treatment of him. Kavanaugh's testimony that didn't find out what the specific allegation was until the New Yorker published it certainly fits within this testimony.
The inquiry involves the Federal Bureau of Investigation reopening its previously completed background check on Judge Kavanaugh.
