US President Donald Trump has said he wants the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but that he did not want to see a "witch hunt".
"What you'll have at the very end - I'm expecting by about Thursday - they're going to be taking all those reports, making one report, and providing [what's] like an executive summary that's going to summarize the findings", Gomez said.
The White House aides and allies said Tuesday that they remained optimistic Kavanaugh would be confirmed but frustrated with the delay on a vote.
"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks", Flake said of Kavanaugh's testimony. "I didn't say that ..." he stammered.
Donnelly, who had been a "maybe" on confirming the nominee facing allegations of sexual assault, on Friday stated that he won't support Judge Kavanaugh.
It comes as the FBI presses ahead with its investigation, questioning in recent days at least three people about accusations of misconduct against Mr Kavanaugh dating to when he was in high school and college.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, has targeted Friday for a vote on Kavanaugh from the full legislative body, a timeframe Democratic Sen.
Privately, though, advisers say Trump was not happy that Kavanaugh talked so extensively about his drinking at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to consider the allegations against him.
They include Mark Judge, a high school friend of Mr Kavanaugh who Ms Ford has said was in the room when a drunken Mr Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task. The Rockies offense went off for double digits several times this week but those games were against subpar pitching.
Ford admitted she hasn't always been sure of when specifically the alleged attack occurred, but said that establishing Judge's time of employment at the Safeway store would narrow the timeframe. In that context, the Federal Bureau of Investigation functions as a contractor for the White House tasked with providing information on a nominee rather than an independent, investigative agency seeking to explore a possible crime. He said Kavanaugh was "rightfully angry" about the accusations, and he added, "Who wouldn't be?"
A vote to confirm Mr Kavanaugh has been delayed as the FBI investigates the claims, which he denies.
Democrats are raising questions both about the truthfulness of Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the Senate and whether he has the temperament for the lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.
In a statement released Sunday, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's said he is "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".
McConnell - who refused to hold a hearing for President Obama's high court nominee, Merrick Garland - charged that Democrats were trying to "move the goal posts" on Kavanaugh's confirmation.
Hundreds of protesters rallied on Monday at Boston's City Hall where Senator Jeff Flake was speaking at a conference, their chants audible in the distance as the Arizona Republican was asked about his dramatic decision last week to press for an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh has denied claims of sexual misconduct by three different women - Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.
Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Ford of California, were brought before the committee on September 24 to testify. "The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.
