Federal Bureau of Investigation can question 'anybody' about Kavanaugh

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), told reporters that a Friday vote on Kavanaugh would be "too soon", adding that it wouldn't give lawmakers enough time to review the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.

Kavanaugh has denied Swetnick and Ford's claims.

"What's happening here has much more to do than the appointment of a Supreme Court judge".

"You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something - doesn't necessarily have to be a woman - but somebody could accuse you of something and you're automatically guilty".

Officials said Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 per cent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff.

No Republicans have indicated since last week's emotional session featuring Kavanaugh and Ford that they would vote against his nomination, although Arizona's Jeff Flake gave a conditional Yes, calling for a FBI investigation that Republicans had resisted.

"I don't know, I don't know, I don't know", President Trump said, imitating Blasey Ford's testimony to the cheers of the crowd at the rally.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it? I don't know. I don't know.

Imitating Ford, he added, "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember". "Well, do you think it was - nope, it was one beer", Trump said during the rally in Southaven, Mississippi.

Demand Justice, a new group focused on fighting efforts to tilt the US judiciary to the right, said it was spending $120,000 to air a television ad in Washington, Alaska, Maine and the San Francisco area, where Ford lives.

Air Force turns to Boeing for $9.2 billion training aircraft contract
Boeing and Saab's T-X trainer would replace the Air Education and Training Command's 57-year-old fleet of Northrop T-38C Talons. The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract allows the Air Force to purchase up to 475 aircraft and 120 simulators .

Mr Kavanaugh has denied her allegation, as well as sexual misconduct accusations by two other women.

Trump came to MS to try to avert an embarrassing loss in the Senate for Republicans in the deep-red state, throwing his weight behind incumbent Sen. "We simply can't", Flake said at an event sponsored by The Atlantic magazine.

His comments come as Democrats are pressing for a more expansive FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. Trump's Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

■Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the Senate will vote this week on whether to elevate Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Tuesday he will donate another $20 million to a super PAC helping Democratic Senate candidates this year.

John Kennedy, who sits on the judiciary committee, said that Swetnick's allegations were not included in the agreement reached to authorize an FBI investigation last week.

On Monday nine of the 10 Democrat Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray with a list of 24 people they believe should be interviewed.

Ford said that Smyth was also at the party where she alleges that Kavanaugh attacked her. Judge, identified by Ford as a witness to the alleged assault, has denied any memory of such an incident.

Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she had offered her full cooperation with the FBI in its investigation but had received no reply. He previously called her a "credible" witness. She said she broke free when Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them and sent them tumbling off the bed. Chuck Grassley repeated his request for notes from Ford's therapy sessions, details of her communications with The Washington Post and any recordings of her taking a lie detector test.

In testimony last Thursday, Ford described attending a house party in the Washington DC suburbs in the early 1980s at which she was pushed into a bedroom where a drunken Kavanaugh held her down, groped her, tried to strip her and left her fearing for her life.
