US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said in Wall Street Journal op-ed on Thursday that he "might have been too emotional at times" in his Senate testimony last week in which he denied accusations of sexual misconduct.
The 51-year-old Wray, like Kavanaugh, attended Yale Law School in the 1980s-he was two years behind him-and joined the Federalist Society while attending.
Among those arrested were actress Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski.
Three Republicans who could be key to whether Mr Kavanaugh is confirmed - Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski - have criticised Mr Trump for mocking Dr Ford at a political rally in MS on on Tuesday. Flake, a retiring senator and frequent thorn in the side of President Donald Trump, achieved a delay long enough for the FBI to reopen its background investigation of the nominee. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME, along with Sen. Gardner's spokesman did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters. In her first speech on the Senate floor, she announced that it was her "duty" to support Kavanaugh.
Sen. Joe Manchin, the only Democratic senator undecided, said he had to leave the SCIF to make room for Republicans and would return Friday morning to finish reading the report.
A handful of Republicans and Democrats have not decided whether to support Kavanaugh.

President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected Democratic criticism of the White House's handling of an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into sexual misconduct accusations against his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as Senate Republicans maneuvered to confirm the conservative judge within days.
"I know that my tone was sharp, and I said a few things I should not have said, Kavanaugh wrote, arguing he was "forceful and passionate" in denying the allegations against him".
