McConnell says Democrats are practicing the politics of personal destruction.
Three women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, but it's been reported FBI investigators are only pursuing information behind two of the allegations. The agency has been interviewing witnesses.
Had JudgeKavanaugh sat dispassionately through Thursday's hearing and denied the allegations weakly, his critics would have taken his lack of forcefulness as proof of guilt.
GOP leadership is reportedly hopeful that the FBI will finish its investigation by Wednesday - it has been given a Friday deadline - to set up the process for the Senate to begin its floor votes on Kavanaugh's confirmation this week.
"It is a very scary time for young men in America when you could be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters on the White House lawn before boarding Marine One.
He added: "My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty".
With 34 days to go before the 2018 midterm elections which decides political control of America's legislative branch, US President Donald Trump is turning the Brett Kavanaugh chaos into a wild west fight against the threat of false accusers in the wake of the #MeToo movement. Susan Collins (R-Maine), signed by more than 800 faculty, administrators and staff at colleges and universities who live and work in ME, urging her to vote no on Kavanaugh's nomination.
That means if all the Democrats vote against Mr Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote. Democrats are pressing the investigators to expand their list of witness interviews but have agreed with the timeline.
"Judge Kavanaugh's remarks suggest he would not give fair consideration to cases that he perceived to be brought by left-leaning organisations that he has already denigrated", they write. The votes of Republicans Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) are not yet certain.
Asked about Graham's idea, Trump told reporters Tuesday that "certainly it's interesting". So far, no Democrat has announced support for Kavanaugh and no Republican has declared opposition to him.
A lawyer for Mr Judge - a childhood friend of Mr Kavanaugh - said on Monday that his client's interview "has not been completed".
"We can't have this on the court. We simply can't", Mr Flake told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.
The White House aides and allies said Tuesday that they remained optimistic Kavanaugh would be confirmed but frustrated with the delay on a vote. Jeff Flake's (R-AZ) gamble may just pay off for Kavanaugh in the long run, if the week-long investigation into Kavanaugh's past turns up little to corroborate Dr. Ford's sexual assault story.
Mr McConnell did not specify when exactly the vote would be held, but it is expected to be on Friday or Saturday.
Regardless of what he did as a teenager, senators need to look at what Kavanaugh is saying now, Schumer argued. "But now you're guilty until proven innocent", Trump said.
"People will know what the Federal Bureau of Investigation says before we end up voting on anything", Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said.
"Is he telling the truth? And that argument evaporated", McConnell said.
"Judge Kavanaugh's lack of respect for our democratic institutions and women in positions of power in particular revealed that he does not have a judicial temperament and is unable to adhere to judicial professionalism", says the letter, from the women in legal education section of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS).
