Brett Kavanaugh: White Home denies limiting Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry

"It was bad. I think everybody has struggled".

As the investigation of past actions continues, lawmakers in both parties are parsing Kavanaugh's testimony from last week. Flake said he may run - either as a Republican or an independent - if no one else does.

In the report, Ramirez, 53, claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself "at a drunken dormitory party" where she alleged he "thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away".

Kavanaugh was not arrested over the 1985 incident.

Murkowski joined other undecided senators who backed Sen.

Flake called for the investigation after Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh's first public accuser, told the Senate Judiciary Committee in emotional testimony last week that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a social gathering in the early 1980's.

NBC's Peter Alexander later asked Trump to clarify what he meant by "this crap", appearing to wonder if he was referring to allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.

He added that "of course" the public will eventually get to see the FBI's report on its investigation of Kavanaugh. He's offered few words to women. Indeed those that have come forward have refuted the allegations.

The battle over Kavanaugh is playing out in the middle of a midterm election campaign that has energized Democratic women across the country, against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement.

As the fresh review unfolded, the prosecutor brought in by Republicans to question Ford at last week's hearing outlined in a memo why she did not believe criminal charges would be brought against Kavanaugh if it were a criminal case rather than a Supreme Court confirmation process. He is young enough, 53, that he could shape American jurisprudence for decades to come. Trump subsequently ordered the investigation. Well, then they received the most pages of documents ever produced for a Supreme Court nomination.

In particular, Democrats have homed in on his contention that the allegations against him are an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".

Dallas Cop Who Killed Botham Jean Fired for 'Adverse Conduct' During Arrest
A Dallas police officer who is accused of killing her neighbor after mistaking his apartment for her own was sacked Monday. Several protests have been held, calling for Guyger's firing and for her charge to be upgraded to murder .

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Dianne Feinstein of California said Tuesday was too soon to "put all the facts together".

It should be noted that The Atlantic story as of Tuesday afternoon quoted Flake as saying "we can't have that on the court" as opposed to "this".

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

A Yale classmate and friend of Brett Kavanaugh, the embattled Trump nomination for Anthony Kennedy's former seat on the Supreme Court, has reportedly delivered text messages to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that were exchanged among Kavanaugh's friends related to an accusation of assault before the details became public.

"I guess I want to say, 'Thank you, '" Walsh said.

The latest Supreme Court session opened on Monday, with eight justices.

Judge has denied Ford's allegations.

Charles "Chad" Ludington, who teaches at North Carolina State University, said he was a friend of Mr Kavanaugh at Yale and he was "a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker".

Concerns: Murkowski has been closely guarded about her opinions on Kavanaugh, but as one of the few Republican senators who supports abortion rights, how the judge might rule on abortion access and the future of the Affordable Care Act have been key issues for her. "If he can lie about this, what else can he lie about?"

He said the Democrats are undermining Kavanaugh's credibility and are "willing to do anything or hurt anyone" to submarine his agenda.
