Collins added Kavanaugh and Ford appeared entirely certain of their telling of the events during the testimony, so she turned to the FBI's supplemental background investigation of Kavanaugh for corroborating evidence.

"I look back at 28 years of Thomas, and I sense absolutely no retribution or I haven't seen any change in the way the courts have operated", he said.

Collins took flack last week after she announced her support for Kavanaugh, whose nomination was derailed after women came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against the now-justice. And if she's willing, she should give testimony too. 2020 reelection raised more than $3.6 million for a yet-to-be-determined Democratic challenger.

"We are just getting started on that", he said.

A crowd of people gathered outside Senator Susan Collins' home in Bangor.

Nearly $3.4 million has so far been raised by more than 115,000 people through the campaign "Either Sen". They had even attempted what some senators called a "bribe", raising millions of dollars in campaign pledges that they said they would donate to her opponent if she voted for President Trump's nominee.

She said ME needs "someone who's not entrenched in the old way of doing things". "We appreciate his vote for Judge Kavanaugh".

Ingraham acknowledged that she was wrong about that.
