FBI To Investigate Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh

FBI contacts Kavanaugh Yale classmate in its ...

And while Trump has called Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to Congress that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school, "credible" and "compelling", he has continued to support Kavanaugh's confirmation and emphatically defend his character.

Mr Trump said he believed the Senate would approve the judge. "If the Federal Bureau of Investigation produces an investigative file and we get a chance to read it by the end of the week, I think they will satisfy their mandate", Durbin said.

The encounter happened after they learned Flake chose to support the Kavanaugh's nomination.

"This entire process has been an embarrassment to our democracy as Hoosiers watched firsthand how Senator Donnelly's liberal colleagues used uncorroborated allegations to create a media circus designed to smear and destroy Judge Kavanaugh's reputation", Braun said.

Kavanaugh and Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, where they answered questions about the allegations.

Earlier on Tuesday, Iowa senator Joni Ernst, one of six Republican women in the chamber, said she plans to vote for Kavanaugh unless the investigation corroborates the allegations against him.

China urges US to show sincerity, correct behavior in trade actions
The U.S. set tariffs on more than 800 Chinese products, including airplane parts and engines. And the rest of the world shares many US concerns regarding Chinese policies .

"That is a very, very hard standard", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.

Mr Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone during the hearing, denying allegations made by three women against him.

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now". She alleges that Kavanaugh as well as Judge were present at one party in "approximately 1982" when she was raped by more than one male, though she does not name her attackers.

A third claim - from Julia Swetnick, who is represented by attorney Michael Avenatti - accuses Mr Kavanaugh of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women at parties in the early 1980s. Judge has denied the allegations, as has Kavanaugh.

She said: "I'm waiting to see what the results are". Kavanaugh's testimony that didn't find out what the specific allegation was until the New Yorker published it certainly fits within this testimony.

The votes of the three Republicans and those of red-state Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota will largely determine whether Kavanaugh is confirmed.

Music is "the anchor tenant for Alexa ", said Amazon devices Senior Vice President Dave Limp at an event held in Amazon's Spheres. The first physical design, a matte black cylinder, was uninspired, but the always-on speaker and Alexa resonated with consumers.

Several other swing vote senators joined Flake in holding up the vote.

'This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, ' Kavanaugh claimed.

But Democrats said that report isn't good enough.

Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency.

Mr McConnell said: "The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close". The email says, "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered". "Even the American Bar Association, which has previously rated Judge Kavanaugh as "well qualified" has called for an FBI investigation, where we could learn more information and other potential witnesses could be interviewed", Donnelly said.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top USA court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

Trump commented on the delayed process as he left the White House for a trip to Pennsylvania. In a statement, Ludington said a group of friends had been staring at the man they said looked like Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40, the band they had just seen.
