Trump decries ‘trauma’ done to Kavanaugh, calls for ‘comprehensive’ investigation

April FrancisOct 02, 2018

The White House said Sunday that it would not "micromanage" the new FBI investigation into Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The FBI will "go out and conduct these interviews in a thorough manner as quickly as possible and they will report - no opinion - they will report that to the people eon the committee", Flagg told CBS News' Reena Ninan.

The investigators will compile information about Mr Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Mr Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.

"Okay, you want to get off trade", Trump said.

But even with a completed FBI investigation, it still may be hard to get a floor vote for Kavanaugh by Thursday. But when the New York Times revealed the four witnesses the Federal Bureau of Investigation will question about the accusations against Kavanaugh, notably missing from the list were his former classmates who have contradicted the SCOTUS nominee's testimony about his partying.

Mitchell continued: "For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the [Senate Judiciary] Committee".

Ms Ramirez has said Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were Yale students.

Mitchell, a non-partisan third party with more than 25 years' experience prosecuting sex crimes, said in her report there were "glaring inconsistencies" in Ford's claims. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. Kavanaugh has denied being the perpetrator. "I'm not a drinker, I can honestly say I've never had a beer in my entire life", he said, per USA Today.

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption", Ludington wrote. He also says Kavanaugh was often belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

During her opening statement, Ford detailed a gathering where she was forced into a bedroom when Ford and Kavanaugh were teenagers.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway yesterday conceded that the review was meant to be "limited in scope".

President Donald Trump ordered the FBI on Friday to reopen Mr Kavanaugh's background investigation after several women accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Dianne Feinstein of California, the Senate Judiciary Committee's top Democrat.

Some Democrats have expressed concern the FBI - in their investigation into sexual allegations against Kavanaugh - are reportedly not talking to high school and college classmates, some of whom have said Kavanaugh drank to excess. "I just hope you don't sit home, because bad things will happen if you sit home", he said. "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said. In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.

Indiana's other U.S. Senator, Todd Young, last week kept his support behind Kavanaugh following the committee hearing. However, the source added that any move to forge ahead with a final vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation would need to be approved by Sens.

Saturday's rally was one of many Trump planned to headline as part of a commitment to campaign aggressively - he has said seven days a week, if necessary - to help the Republican Party overcome significant Democratic opposition and anger to keep control of both houses of Congress. Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote if the Senate is evenly split.

Other allegations also have been made public by Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

The Gateway Pundit blog called the memo a "complete" exoneration of Kavanaugh. Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.

"If true, this is outrageous", her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted Saturday afternoon.
