Confusion surrounds Judge Brett Kavanaugh's FBI investigation

Howard TerryOct 01, 2018

Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion.

In her prepared testimony, Ford named three other people-beside her and Kavanaugh-who she said were present at the party, including Mark Judge, Patrick James "PJ" Smyth, and Keyser. Chris Coons, as well as other Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, before making his surprise proposal.

When asked Saturday about any White House involvement in determining the parameters of the FBI investigation, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN that "the Senate is determining the scope". "They are just compiling the investigation and reporting on it".

Fellow Senate Judiciary Committee member Sen. "I wanted him to be a hero". "But it has to be more than five".

According to NBC News, another restriction the White House has set bars the FBI from investigating Kavanaugh's account of his drinking habits during high school and at Yale University. "Survivors have a right to decide how their stories are made public".

"I've talked to Judge Kavanaugh", Kennedy said. Democrats have been calling for such a probe, though Republicans and the White House have insisted it was unnecessary. The local offices generally will assign as many staff as necessary to pursue those leads.

He also "categorically" denied sexual misconduct claims against him and Kavanaugh made by another accuser, Julie Swetnick.

"The Senate is dictating the terms".

"There's been a great deal of public discussion about the #MeToo movement today versus the Year of the Woman nearly 27 years ago", she said at Thursday's hearing.

Kavanaugh's high school friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said that he will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that will "confidentially investigate" sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh.

Ford said she feared that she would be raped and accidentally killed.

The day before, Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he never sexually assaulted anyone, including Christine Blasey Ford.

Swetnick's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but was willing to cooperate with investigators.

Judge has said he does not recall any such incident. They also slammed Republicans for refusing to call other witnesses to testify. At the same time, she has strongly embraced Trump and his combative ethos, which Kavanaugh exemplified during his Thursday testimony.

"We're going to do a wholesale, full scale investigation of what I think was a despicable process to deter it from happening again", Graham said, according to the Washington Examiner. "I mean, come on". Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

"They have betrayed her".

60 Minutes airs Sunday at 7:30 p.m. EST. Flake's office did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment on Saturday. They include Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Flake, a frequent critic of Trump who is not seeking re-election.

But, he said, he understood his anger.

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher.

After seeing Ford's powerful testimony, White House aides and allies expressed concern that Kavanaugh, whose nomination already seemed to be teetering, would have difficulty to deliver a strong enough showing to match hers. Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said last week they interviewed two men who said they might have had the encounter with Ford that she described, but no Republican senator has lent any credence to those claims. He said Feinstein "pantomimed her way through [the confirmation] hearings without a single question about the content of Kavanaugh's character".

Senator Doug Jones, a first-term Democrat from Alabama, a state in which President Donald Trump won by a wide margin, said Thursday he is voting "no" on Kavanaugh's bid for the Supreme Court.

"This is about power", he said.
