If The FBI Finds Nothing, Most Americans Want Kavanaugh Confirmed

Also in today's edition USMCA is the new acronym you have to learn

Trump was speaking at the "Make America Great Again" rally in support of Mississippi's two incumbent USA senators, Cindy Hyde-Smith and Roger Wicker, both Republicans.

'Guilty until proven innocent, that's very unsafe for our country, ' Trump said of Ford's testimony last week that Kavanaugh attempted to hold her down and remove her clothes in 1982, when they were both in high school.

The letter went on: "This afternoon, we learned of media reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not intend to interview either Dr Ford or Judge Kavanaugh". "They can say anything they want but we can't sue them, because if you're famous you can't sue, figure that out".

On Wednesday, Senator Angus King (I-ME) accused Donald Trump of fanning the flames of political tribalism by attacking Christine Ford over her sexual misconduct claims.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said after speaking with White House counsel Don McGahn over the weekend he remained "very concerned" the FBI's probe would be too narrow. Flake has said Kavanaugh's nomination would end if the FBI investigation found he had lied in his Senate testimony.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top US court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

Schumer made his request in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue just weeks before November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.

Mr Trump said he believed the judge would be confirmed.

Cubs to host Brewers for NL Central tiebreaker game
At least Joe Maddon's team got a taste of the pressure on Sunday when they had to win to just get the shot on Monday. In the Central, the Brewers blanked the Detroit Tigers 11-0 for their 95th win of the season against 67 losses.

As hundreds of supporters cheered, Trump delivered a crude imitation of Ford from her testimony, in which she vividly described a violent sexual assault by Kavanaugh in the early 1980s but admitted that details of the time and place were lost to memory.

But Trump spent much of the rally lamenting the treatment of Kavanaugh by Democrats, whose attacks, he said, had taken their toll on the judge's family.

"Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a terrible thing to me".

He and Kavanaugh were classmates at Georgetown Preparatory School, an elite private school outside Washington.

"Despite these efforts, we have received no response from anyone involved in this investigation and no response to our offer for Dr. Ford to be interviewed". Kavanaugh angrily denied the charges hours later and accused Democrats of orchestrating a "political hit" against him. Reuters was unable to verify the report or reach the people named.

Swetnick has not. She alleged in an affivadit that Kavanaugh engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behaviour towards girls" at parties in Maryland in the early 1980s. On Friday, he voted to move the nominee out of committee but called for an FBI investigation into allegations made against Kavanaugh in order to gain more clarity on the matter before the full Senate votes on his nomination.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would consolidate conservative control of the Supreme Court, with disputes involving abortion rights, immigration, gay rights, voting rights and transgender troops possibly heading to the court soon.

He also mocked Democrats as acting "holier than thou" and focused on several potential 2020 contenders by name, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen.

Trump concluded the riff by lamenting the personal cost to Kavanaugh of Ford's allegations and by insinuating that Ford was part of a partisan conspiracy. "I don't remember", Trump said, mocking Ford's answers before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks". Trump did not elaborate. Last Thursday, he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on Dr Ford's allegations.
