So far, no Republicans have publicly said they would vote against Mr Kavanaugh. Two Senate staff members say the plan is to have separate times for Democrats and Republicans.
As Senate Republican leaders marched towards a final vote on Kavanaugh's nomination, perhaps over the weekend, the three Republicans who could be key to whether Kavanaugh is confirmed, criticized Trump for his remarks about Ford at a political rally in MS on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday, Graham said he thought Kavanaugh would be nominated.
If they don't have the votes, the nomination fails. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has said he wants senators to receive an Federal Bureau of Investigation briefing on its findings at least 24 hours before the chamber takes its first procedural vote on Kavanaugh, but Republicans have given no sign of assenting to that.
Flake, the Judiciary Committee member who pushed to delay the vote on Kavanaugh so the FBI could investigate, later told The Washington Post that Trump's comments would not factor into his thinking on the nomination.
But Ford has not heard from the FBI as of Tuesday morning as questions mount about the extent of the agency's investigation, her team said told CNN.
Imitating Ford's testimony, Trump, who was himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, said: "What neighborhood was it in?" I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs - where was it? "But I had one beer that's the only thing I remember"'. I don't remember. Where is the place? The case is even weaker than "he-said, she-said" because it's complete uncorroborated, she added. "It's kind of appalling".
Collins on Wednesday called Trump's scoffing at Ford "just plain wrong".
The response came a day after Republican Sen.
Kavanaugh has also not been helped by the emergence of former Yale classmates who have accused him of lying to the committee about his college drinking habits when he told the panel that he "did not drink beer to the point of blacking out".
"He said that he was stating facts that Dr. Ford herself laid out in her testimony", Sanders answered "Once again, every single word that Judge Kavanaugh has said has been looked at, examined, picked apart by most of you in this room".
Addressing a campaign rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump cast doubt on Ford's allegation that Kavanaugh, his nominee for the U.S. supreme court, attempted to rape her when the two were teenagers in the early 1980s.
The President's remarks also offered an opening to critics of the Kavanaugh nomination, including Democratic Sen.
Trump limited the investigation to no more than a week.
The lack of interviews raises "serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation and begs the question: what other restrictions has the White House placed on the FBI?"

Senator Joni Ernst from Iowa, said Ford's story hasn't been corroborated and people should be presumed innocent until proved guilty.
But Flake also said that the President's attack would not influence his vote. It's the "disgrace" of Democrats who have shown "no regard of the process, decency, or standards" of Supreme Court nominee confirmation hearings.
'Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh, ' Trump posted. It's just not right.
