Senators Spar Over FBI Probe of Kavanaugh, Trump Mocks His Accuser

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington

Heitkamp, meanwhile, noted that Trump himself called for a "broader" FBI investigation into the allegations. I don't know. I don't know.

A lawyer for the woman who says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a college party, Deborah Ramirez, says he's seen no indication that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has reached out to any of the 20 people who Ramirez says may be able to corroborate her account.

Writing to the FBI, attorneys for Professor Christine Blasey Ford said it was "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a thorough investigation without interviewing her.

"If we took 10 years, they'd want more time", he said. Last Thursday, he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on Dr Ford's allegations. President Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh in July, has defended his pick, but appeared to temper the endorsement in recent days.

Asked at that news conference about the message being sent to young women, Trump focused on women's complaints about how Kavanaugh has been treated through his confirmation process.

Watching a sexual predator mock a survivor - and watching a crowd of people laugh with him - is too much for anyone with a conscience to ignore.

"Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a frightful thing to me".

But there's a little more to streaming a game than a movie. "It is going to help the AAA game industry grow much faster", he said. Participants must also have both a Google and Ubisoft account as well as an updated version of the Chrome browser (version 69+).

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

They include Mark Judge, who Ford has said was in the bedroom where, she says, a drunken Kavanaugh sexually attacked her at a 1982 high school gathering.

The White House aides and allies said Tuesday that they remained optimistic Kavanaugh would be confirmed but frustrated with the delay on a vote.

The President said Tuesday night that Kavanaugh's "life is in tatters".

The White House announced Friday afternoon that President Donald Trump had ordered the FBI to open a supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.

Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said in a media statement the judge was not truthful during his Senate testimony last week about his drinking and that Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" at Yale who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would consolidate conservative control of the Supreme Court, with disputes involving abortion rights, immigration, gay rights, voting rights and transgender troops possibly heading to the court soon.

An equity settlement could end up diluting Musk's roughly 19 percent stake in Tesla , further reducing his influence on the board. Former US Vice President Al Gore could be a good fit to replace Elon Musk as chairman, according to one longtime tech analyst.

"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks", Flake said.

"You can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said.

When will the Senate vote on Kavanaugh?

"They'll have the opportunity to vote "no" on the politics of personal destruction".

Chuck Grassley, the Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, separately demanded in a letter to Ford's lawyers that they provide a range of materials to determine whether her allegations are credible.

The senator said he is requesting the recordings because the committee has obtained a letter that "raises specific concerns" about the reliability of Ford's polygraph test.

Avenatti, who has said he is considering a Democratic run for the presidency in 2020, is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who was paid to remain silent about an alleged affair with Trump.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fueled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s. What do I do Mom?' he said, imagining the panicked son pleading with his mother for advice.

Kennedy: I believe Kavanaugh - will vote to confirm
Her allegations first appeared in the New Yorker. "It's about sinking Donald Trump and it's about politicizing the Supreme Court". Archila told the AP she was sexually assaulted when she was 5 years old by a teenager when she and her family lived in Colombia.
