Deborah Ramirez’s lawyer questions depth of FBI probe on Kavanaugh

Jim Bourg  Reuters

Donnelly, who had been a "maybe" on confirming the nominee facing allegations of sexual assault, on Friday stated that he won't support Judge Kavanaugh.

"I believe Judge Kavanaugh was truthful under oath during today's hearing, and I trust the statements of the witnesses named by Dr. Ford who said under penalty of felony that they have no recollection of the alleged incident", Young said.

Mr Trump said he had requested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation be given free rein, but added: "I'd like it to go quickly".

Several women have come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct and an instance dates back to the time the attorney was in high school.

Senator McConnell said a vote would happen on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination by the end of the week.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on September 27, 2018. They also have criticized Kavanaugh for his angry testimony about the allegations - which include being present at a gang rape - when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana, a Republican member of the Judiciary Committee, said Kavanaugh has only been responding to Democratic attacks.

Democrats, meanwhile, were raising new questions about the truthfulness of Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the Senate, shifting tactics against President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee as they await the results of the FBI's background investigation.

While the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh are deeply troubling, there's unlikely to be the kind of clear evidence for these acts as there might be for accusations of perjury. That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Plus, Torreira especially is more adept defensively, something that Arsenal - and Ramsey - has notoriously struggled at for so long in massive games and derbies.

"So I assume that you're going to find the same thing when Kavanaugh gets on the Supreme Court", Grassley concluded.

Jeff Flake, who holds extraordinary leverage in the confirmation process, addressed Judge Brett Kavanaugh's future directly as he trekked across New England while exploring a possible run for president.

The president's comments were in response to questions about an interview the Daily Mail released with his son Donald Trump Jr.

But Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Kavanaugh could be excused for showing passion.

Walsh has said his client doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party with him.

Ramirez asked for an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, alleging that he exposed himself to her at a college party in the 1980s. But he said the statements Kavanaugh is making now do matter. At least one undecided Republican, Sen.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a key swing vote on the nomination, believes the scope of the FBI's investigation should include allegations brought by a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, but the senator is deferring to the FBI itself on who should be interviewed, a spokeswoman said.

Harvard Law School says U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January. "This is a very hard time".

Mark Judge, who has denied any wrongdoing, completed his interview with FBI agents as part of the reopened background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, said his lawyer, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder.

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