Kavanaugh to Get Senate Vote This Week, McConnell Says

If Kavanaugh confirmed, 'House will have to' investigate if Senate doesn't: Democratic rep Brett Kavanaugh 'belligerent and aggressive' after 'heavy' drinking, ex-classmate says

"We actually need to find out what we can find out". He was due later in the evening in Saint Anselm College to give another talk at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.

The previously planned swing through New England drew added attention, however, after the retiring Arizona senator used his "leverage" on the Senate Judiciary Committee last Friday to force Republican leaders to agree to a one-week Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into "current and credible allegations" against Kavanaugh.

The White House has faced criticism by Democrats after NBC News reported that it had limited the scope of the FBI's probe, including by ordering not to interview Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

"We certainly want the FBI to do a real investigation, and we are working to make sure that that happens", Flake said Monday in Boston at the Forbes Under 30 Summit.

Flake said the FBI investigation will lead to additional interviews and could reveal new information. But he also said Senate Republicans are determining the parameters of the investigation and "ultimately, they're making the judgment".

Organizers of the Boston event said they moved the location to City Hall after security concerns emerged about the original location.

If, on the other hand, he votes no on Kavanaugh, Flake may continue his role as a maverick - but a maverick in a party whose other federal officeholders are nearly all pasture ponies, tamed by and terrified of Trump.

In a separate report, NBC News obtained text messages that suggest Kavanaugh knew about forthcoming accusations from Deborah Ramirez - who accused him of sexual assault when they were both students at Yale - before Thursday's hearing with Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's first accuser. He did say he didn't like "some of the more partisan references and tone" from Kavanaugh, including the judge challenging Sen. "Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said during an appearance of CBS" "Face the Nation".

The Democrats are doing irreparable harm in the name of their own political agenda and have made victims of Judge Kavanaugh and his family, Ms. Ford and all of us, the American people.

"No, not a chance", Mr. Flake said.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's accusation, as well as those of two other women. Jeff Flake, who said he would support Kavanaugh's confirmation before shocking the Senate Judiciary Committee Friday by calling for the process to be slowed so the FBI could investigate.


"I had been troubled for awhile".

"In the climate we've got today it's going to be hard for someone like Jeff Flake to get any kind of momentum", he said.

Flake spoke of his work with fellow Democratic Sen. "I felt very sad for the United States Senate".

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer".

President Donald Trump defended his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, during a Monday press conference, calling the judge's Senate confirmation process "not fair".

"You don't let that person disappear to the beach, with their clothes stacked in a auto, and hide from process". Trump said. "You have to stay within reason".

Asked about another run for president in 2020, Kerry demurred: "The only thing that anyone should be talking about right now is the election in about 40 days". I hope to continue to fail my tribe.

Schumer said Kavanaugh was "rudely interrupting" senators in a way he'd never seen from a witness.

But in March, Flake told New Hampshire Republicans that someone needs to stop Trump in the 2020 presidential contest.

"I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the committee".
