In Memo, Outside Prosecutor Pokes Holes in Christine Blasey Ford’s Testimony

Supreme Court Justice Kagan won’t discuss Kavanaugh

Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) told the tale of how they struck an unexpected compromise last Thursday that ultimately advanced Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh out of the Senate Judiciary Committee - and toward a vote on the Senate floor, which has yet to take place.

Leaving the hearing on Friday, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from IL, said it was his understanding there would be an FBI investigation of "the outstanding allegations, the three of them", but Republicans have not said whether that was their understanding as well. "You never do." (He apparently thought she said, "I'm not thinking, Mr. President.") When Vega said, "I'm sorry?", Trump answered, "No, go ahead".

President Donald Trump ordered the FBI on Friday to reopen Mr Kavanaugh's background investigation after several women accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

The sex crimes prosecutor who questioned a California women accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault is explaining why she would not bring criminal charges against the Supreme Court nominee.

Flake requested the FBI investigation on Friday as a condition of his vote to report Kavanaugh's nomination out of the Judiciary Committee, a move that Collins and Murkowski supported. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", he said. It could also temper the perception that Republicans were much more interested in getting Kavanaugh onto the court as quickly as they could rather than determining the validity of sexual misconduct accusations against him. "It's so unfair to his kids and his wife".

"Based on what we publicly know as far as the universe of people, I don't see any reason why the FBI could not complete an investigation within one week", said Mark Zaid, a Washington lawyer and expert in security clearance and background investigations.

Another Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has challenged the truthfulness of the Supreme Court nominee's Senate testimony, saying Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank.

"They should interview, but they should be guided by what the senators are looking for", he said. In January 2016, Graham said that choosing between Trump or Texas Senator Ted Cruz was like "death by being shot or by poisoning, doesn't really matter". Some White House officials point to private polling and focus groups that show once-apathetic Republican voters are galvanized by the Kavanaugh fight and more apt to vote in November. "I do think that we can make progress". The consent for a fresh probe was a concession by the Trump administration and Republicans who had strongly contended that Kavanaugh had been thoroughly vetted numerous times.

Inside the White House, strategists view it differently.

Swetnick's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but was willing to co-operate with investigators.

I do not believe that the heavy drinking or even loutish behavior of an 18 or even 21 year old should condemn a person for the rest of his life.

The only time she is confirmed to have named Mr. Kavanaugh as the assailant is when she complained to Congress and the press culminating in her Senate testimony last week. Trump asked, mentioning a term he has used in the past to denigrate Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"The demeanor of Kavanaugh was vaguely shocking for the particular job he's being considered for", says Samuel, a progressive who was an ideological "counter" law clerk to Justice Scalia.
