Will the FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh find anything?

McConnell mocked the questions from Democrats about Kavanaugh's drinking in high school and college.

Ford said she was "100 percent" certain that Kavanaugh was her attacker.

The Trump administration has been criticized for allegedly limiting the scope of the probe, despite Trump's claims that the FBI has "free rein" to conduct the investigation as they see fit.

Responding to those concerns, Trump said at a press conference he wants the FBI to do a "comprehensive" investigation and "it wouldn't bother me at all" if agents pursued accusations made by the three women.

"Supreme Court is the last bastion, the last institution that most Americans have faith in", he said, "If that faith is gone, then Heaven help us".

Republicans later called the White House to discuss the scope of the probe, the person said.

The revised guidance was aimed at promoting an investigation that could tamp down Democratic criticism and satisfy on-the-fence Republicans about its thoroughness and fairness while also ensuring a fixed deadline to prevent the probe from becoming open-ended and spanning weeks.

"One can only image what new bombshell might be published today or tomorrow", he said.

Amid controversy, the FBI is moving quickly with an expedited investigation into sex assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - an inquiry former director James Comey said the bureau is well-suited to handle.

Investigators with the FBI on Sunday interviewed the Boulder woman who said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party in the early 1980s, a source close to the investigation told The Denver Post. She said Judge and Kavanaugh were both drunk at the time.

His comments come as Democrats are pressing for a more expansive FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

But for the boys it's much more important what I think about their performance than what you think about their performance. So far, we played Tottenham, PSG, Southampton and Chelsea so we are half-way through, and so far we did really well.

His attorney, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, wouldn't say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked. She declined to elaborate.

Even before the allegations against Kavanaugh were publicized, the women argued, Manchin should have been committed to voting against President Donald Trump's nominee.

'I did also say within the bounds of what the Senate wants.

The FBI has also interviewed Leland Keyser, who Ford said attended the same party.

"Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford's account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford's account", Walsh wrote in a letter to the Judiciary Committee last week.

Kavanaugh angrily and emotionally denied the allegations, asserting that he never sexually assaulted anyone at anytime in his life.

But with Republican leadership eager to place another conservative on the Supreme Court, it would be extremely unlikely that they would cooperate with a further delay of confirmation.

Mr Kavanaugh has strongly denied any misconduct. After he and accuser Christine Blasey Ford sat for hours of emotional testimony Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to advance the nomination - but Flake, who sits on the committee, had changed his mind after announcing support for Kavanaugh that morning and called for a weeklong FBI investigation into the claims. The Judiciary Committee had a closed hearing to review the previous background checks into Kavanaugh after the initial public hearings for him last month.

The one-week break will allow the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh's behavior as a teenager.

The classmate, Chad Ludington, who said he frequently socialized with Kavanaugh as a student, said in a statement that the judge had been untruthful in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee when he had denied any possibility that he had ever blacked out from drinking. She alleges that Kavanaugh as well as Judge were present at one party in "approximately 1982" when she was raped by more than one male, though she does not name her attackers.
