Democratic senator 'satisfied' with FBI investigation of Kavanaugh allegation

Key Republican senators have called the White House over the past 24 hours to make clear that they expect a fulsome investigation as the FBI reviews allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, CNN has learned.

The White House has instructed the FBI to interview anyone it considers necessary in its background investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - so long as the review is done by the end of the week.

Kavanaugh's fate is largely dependent on a small number of Republicans who have said they want to see what a limited FBI investigation yields. "I guess I want to say, 'Thank you, '" Walsh said. On Monday, President Donald Trump said he wants it to be done "quickly", but that it should also be "comprehensive. whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority". "It has been from the beginning, and we're letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like", Ms Sanders said. The Late Night host sounded off on last week's Senate Judiciary hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, where both Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Kavanuagh testified.

Flake said Sunday that if the FBI's investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh found that he lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, his nomination would not likely move forward.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the ranking Democrat on the committee, agreed.

Jenna Clemenzi, a 20-year-old senior at Simmons College, told the Herald that Kavanaugh's anger and outbursts during his hearing are enough in themselves to keep him off the high court.

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.

FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, declined on Monday afternoon to provide more detail on what the FBI's investigation can cover. He said the "goal" of Mitchell's hiring was to "de-politicize the process and get to the truth, instead of grandstanding and giving senators an opportunity to launch their presidential campaigns".

"We have to be serene with the idea that if there's a thorough but expeditious investigation, that that in itself is a good thing", Sen. Trump did not elaborate.In a statement to media, Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said the judge was not truthful about his drinking during his Senate testimony last week and that at Yale, Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

The White House noted that Kavanaugh wasn't arrested or charged and questioned the incident's relevance.

Mr Flake said he would ensure it is a "real investigation" by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Mr Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency.

"I believe women deserve respect", said Betsy Forester, speaking directly to Manchin on the conference call.

Gomez pointed out that, between this nominations and others that Kavanaugh has undergone as a federal judge, he's already undergone six background checks.

Swetnick said in a declaration that Kavanaugh was physically abusive toward girls in high school and was at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a gang rape.

Sanders said Trump, who has vigorously defended Kavanaugh but also raised the slight possibility of withdrawing the nomination should damaging information be found, "will listen to the facts".

Moments earlier, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of engaging in the "politics of personal destruction" against a "stunningly qualified nominee".

"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks".

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".
