Week Ahead: Kavanaugh FBI Investigation, NAFTA Deal And More

Michael Avenatti says the Kavanaugh FBI investigation is a 'farce and is being run by Donald Trump'

Sen. Susan Collins of ME - one of three Republican senators who was instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote - said she had extensive conversation with the White House counsel's office and is "confident that the FBI is doing a thorough investigation and that it will be helpful to us as we make our decisions".

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.

Trump said a comprehensive investigation is "a good thing" for Kavanaugh and that while it was fine that the FBI wants to interview all three women who have made accusations, "we don't want to go on a witch hunt, do we?" Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.). Flake said that the investigation would ease his conscience before he voted to confirm Kavanaugh. "It has been from the beginning, and we're letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like", Ms Sanders said. She's the second woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

The two women who confronted Flake were left-wing activists with the Center for Popular Democracy, according to John Fund of National Review. But the President stressed again that Kavanaugh's life had been all but ruined by allegations he suggested were false.

Their meeting would lead to the advancing of Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate - but the circuit court judge now faces an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into the sexual assault allegations against him.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, declined on Monday afternoon to provide more detail on what the FBI's investigation can cover.

"When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", said Chad Ludington. Judge Kavanaugh's nomination is out of committee.

Last week, Flake expressed eagerness to see Kavanaugh confirmed but said he wanted a "better process" for assessing the allegations. "And that's something that they would highlight in this summary, and then that'll be submitted to the White House and ultimately Congress".

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

She also became the first woman to reach the last 8 at this year's edition too. Qiang Wang beat Monica Puig 6-3 6-1 in the the other completed quarter-final.

"I didn't say that", Mr.

Rachel Mitchell, the sex-crimes prosecutor who questioned Dr. Christine Blasey Ford last week, wrote in a memo released late Sunday that there were inconsistencies in Ford's testimony and that - given the information at hand - she would not bring criminal charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii said that in addition to the allegations the conspiracy-minded accusation Kavanaugh made in last week's session makes him unfit for the top court in the land. "Not only is the law of judicial nominations up for grabs, but also the whole question of sexual aggression and how we as a nation respond to it is very much a part of this new day in America".

Immediately, Republican challenger Mike Braun issued a statement critical of Donnelly, while reiterating his own support of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation. "And the reason I'd like it to go quickly - very simple, so simple - because it's unfair to [Kavanaugh] at this point".

In particular, Democrats have homed in on his contention that the allegations against him are an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons". "Instead, it seems that the Republican goal is to be able to say there was an investigation and it didn't change their view, while the Democrats hope for incriminating evidence to derail the nominee".

But Alexandre Lacazette's 90th minute goal ensured Unai Emery's side held on for their sixth successive win in all competitions. Two Chelsea players were standing in offside positions when the free kick came in but neither interfered with play.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has said that the investigation would be "limited to current credible allegations" - raising questions over exactly what would be investigated given that Kavanaugh faces multiple allegations.
