Trump Decries ‘Trauma’ Done To Kavanaugh, Calls For ‘Comprehensive’ Investigation

Supreme Court Justice Kagan won’t discuss Kavanaugh

He told The New York Times that he "never, ever saw Brett Kavanaugh black out" from drinking and "never, ever saw him act inappropriately toward any woman in the 35 years that I've known him".

The president revisited the question of "scope" later Saturday on Twitter, writing in part, "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion". "Whatever that means according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that". 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.

Lawyers for P.J. Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser, two others who Ford said were in the house when she was attacked, have said their clients are willing to cooperate "fully" with the FBI's investigation. "It shows that Republicans want to make sure that we have all the facts to make an informed decision".

GOP women believe he should be confirmed by 86 percent to just 9 percent who say no, while 86 percent also saying they believed Kavanaugh compared to just 10 percent believed Ford.

Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans and Trump all got bad grades for handling the accusations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

Though he claimed during his testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee that one of his female "feminist" friends from college sent him a text telling him that he's a "good man", a growing number of his former classmates are recalling harsher images of Kavanaugh: someone who was "belligerent", "aggressive", and "often drank to excess".

"A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove", Mitchell explained.

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

Flake, a frequent Trump critic, said it was important last week to "hit the brakes" on the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

Senate Judiciary chairman: No delay to Kavanaugh hearing despite new allegations
As of right now, there really isn't much else to say about these harrowing allegations made by Swetnick under penalty of perjury. She said in her statement that there are two witnesses who can attest to her account, but she has not identified them publicly.

Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell assisted Republicans in questioning Christine Blasey Ford last week, and said there were inconsistencies in her account.

Kavanaugh testified Thursday that claims of misconduct and sexual assault from 1982 are untrue.

"I think the judge has been pretty awesome about describing his situation with alcohol and with beer", he said, pivoting to criticize Democratic senators.

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

"The White House counsel has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like and what the scope of the investigation is", she said. "The FBI is not tasked to do that".

Senate Judiciary Committee members (L-R) Sen. Kavanaugh denied her allegation, as well as accusations made by two other women, and accused Democrats of making him the victim of a political "hit".

"I was, principally, concerned about helping my friend listen to his doubts and his conscience", Coons said of Flake.

Democrats and Republicans have argued about whether a week is enough time to carry out a thorough investigation. In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.

The justices might also consider whether federal law bars job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, and whether President Donald Trump can rescind deportation protections for young undocumented immigrants. "It is time to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court where he belongs".
