Federal Bureau of Investigation finishes report into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh

UB40 Want Nothing to Do With Brett Kavanaugh Lawyer: FBI has completed Mark Judge interview
| 04 October, 2018, 08:30

If all the Democrats in the Senate stick together, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can afford to lose only one senator from his ranks and still confirm Trump's pick.

According to a preliminary schedule, drafted with the expectation that the Senate will receive the report Wednesday evening, Republicans will read the first hour, starting at 8 a.m. Thursday, and Democrats will read the hour after that, according to a person who was briefed on the plan.

A public policy analyst contends that despite the loud protests and delaying tactics from Senate Democrats, Brett Kavanaugh ultimately will be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If they don't have the votes, the nomination fails.

The FBI interviewed several people, including three who Ford has said attended a 1982 high school gathering in suburban Maryland where she says Kavanaugh's attack occurred, plus another Kavanaugh friend.

The FBI has completed its interview of Mark Judge, a key witness to the alleged incident between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and professor Christine Blasey Ford, but the agency hasn't contacted Ford, their representatives said Tuesday.

The result will likely come down to just a few senators who are on the fence about Kavanaugh's nomination.

Ford alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her as a teen while at an high school party when he pinned her to a bed and tried to take her clothes off.

"I don't know", Trump repeated multiple times. "I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", he stated inaccurately. I don't remember. Where is the place?

That "small loan of a million dollars" that Trump says his dad gave him to launch his business empire?

Mr Flake said on United States television: "There's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally". "It's kind of appalling".


Collins on called Trump's scoffing at Ford "just plain wrong". But Trump has since changed his tone, believing a vigorous defense of Kavanaugh could energize Republican voters in advance of the midterm elections.

"So President Trump went through a factual rendition, that I didn't particularly like, and I would tell him to knock it off".

"Dr. Ford has struggled to recall important events relating to her allegations, and her testimony regarding recent events raises further questions about her memory", Mitchell concluded.

Sanders also blasted Democrats, accusing them of launching a "full-scale assault on" Kavanaugh's integrity.

Critics of the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault are stepping up their attack on her.

Trump ordered the FBI investigation last Friday, limiting its duration to no more than a week.

Senator Flake was instrumental last week in getting Mr Trump to order an FBI investigation into the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh, after he was confronted in a lift by victims of sexual assault.

Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

On the Senate floor, McConnell, R-Ky., claimed the protesters were "part of the organized effort" to derail Kavanaugh's nomination and said, "There is no chance in the world that they're going to scare us out of doing our duty".

On NBC's "Today" show Wednesday, Sen.

Administrators at the prestigious college emailed students late Monday to say Kavanaugh "indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered". This background check, requested by a trio of senators who are undecided on Kavanaugh's confirmation, will be different.
