FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh could wrap up as early as today

Trump said that the Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh's nomination are "evil people" who are out to 'destroy people'.

" 'What neighborhood was it in?' 'I don't know.' 'Where's the house?' 'I don't know.' 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' 'I don't know".

"A lot is going to depend on what comes back from the FBI in terms of their additional - No. 7 - investigation", Trump said.

Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor, has alleged Mr Judge was in the room when a drunken Mr Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the early 1980s. Cory Booker, D-N.J. speak during a Senate Judiciary Committee nominations hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington.

"It does us no good to have an investigation that just gives us more cover", Flake said.

Starting on Tuesday, scores of protesters also planned to deliver morning cups of coffee to Senate offices with messages from victims of sexual assault to encourage them to "wake up to the truth", the Center for Popular Democracy advocacy group said. She said she was able to get away and run into the bathroom after Judge jumped on her and Kavanaugh, knocking them off the bed.

"If a woman ever behaved that way - to me it was behavior that was not suitable for a person who would be a judge on any court, much less the Supreme Court of the United States", she said. I don't remember. How many years ago was it?

Kavanaugh's truthfulness to Congress - including how he represented his alcohol consumption - is also under the scanner, with a former Yale classmate on Monday accusing the judge of misleading lawmakers when he said he never experienced blackouts. She argued that senators need more time to evaluate the FBI's findings.

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee voted on Friday in favor of Kavanaugh's nomination but a full Senate vote on confirmation was delayed for a week after President Donald Trump bowed to pressure from moderate members of his Republican Party for the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Kavanaugh first testified for his confirmation hearing before lawmakers on the committee almost a month ago - September 4.

On Iwobi , Emery added: "He works well every day". "Because the football career for the players is very short". I am happy because we are becoming more competitive. "We need to continue being calm, and giving them calm".

"A man's life is in tatters", he said.

Trump, in a riff that has been dreaded by White House and Senate aides, attacked the story of Christine Blasey Ford at length - drawing laughs from the crowd.

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe. When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense". "They'll have the opportunity to vote "no" on the politics of personal destruction".

President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he still supports Kavanaugh but said it is "a scary time for young men" who could become the subject of false accusations.

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now".

"It's not fair to Judge Kavanaugh to string this matter along further", Majority Whip John Cornyn of Texas said.

"They seriously call into question his character and morality", the letter reads, "and should disqualify him from a lifetime appointment as a Supreme Court Justice" and a Harvard Law School lecturer.

In a White House press conference overnight, the U.S. leader sought to excuse excessive drinking by teenagers, while going beyond Mr Kavanaugh's own testimony on his past use of alcohol to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed. Trump said, role-playing a conversation between a son and mother.

The senator said he is requesting the recordings because the committee has obtained a letter that "raises specific concerns" about the reliability of Ford's polygraph test.

What she's said: "It is reassuring to the public", Collins told The New York Times over the weekend.
