Trump says he wants ‘comprehensive’ but speedy FBI investigation of Kavanaugh

Others say the call for a one-week FBI investigation is just a stall tactic for Republicans to secure the necessary 51 votes in the United States Senate to confirm him.

In response to a statement from Kavanaugh in which he insisted that he was focused on sports and academics in school and never drank to excess, Liz Swisher, another former classmate at Yale who now works as a doctor in Seattle, said that his statements were "not credible".

Coons said Kavanaugh "went over a line", referencing the heated exchanges between Kavanaugh and Sen.

Kavanaugh admitted being a heavy drinker as a student and said he still likes beer.

"He also downplayed to a great degree the possibility that he could ever not know what was going on", Ludington said.

"I believe she is honest", Kennedy said of Ford's uncorroborated belief that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the '80s.

Sanders spoke on "Fox News Sunday", and Conway appeared on CNN's "State of the Union".

"I drank beer with my friends".

"If you listen carefully. you can practically hear the sounds of the Democrats moving the goal posts", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on the Senate floor on Monday, predicting that Democrats won't be satisfied by the FBI investigation into the Kavanaugh allegations if it turns up no new evidence.

Kavanaugh testified Thursday that claims of misconduct and sexual assault from 1982 are untrue.

Democrats are concerned investigators will not examine Kavanaugh's drinking habits.

Another is an unnamed Yale classmate who wanted to corroborate Deborah Ramirez's accusation that Kavanaugh had exposed himself to her at a college party.

But the parameters of the new and limited Federal Bureau of Investigation probe don't include interviewing Julie Swetnick, a third accuser who alleged this week that he was at a party decades ago where she was gang-raped, according to a report on Saturday in the Wall Street Journal.

According to Mitchel Sollenberger, an assistant professor of political science at University of Michigan-Dearborn, "FBI review of judicial candidates has been a routine part of the pre-nomination process since Richard Nixon's presidency, but the practice can be traced back to at least the Herbert Hoover administration, when Attorney General William Mitchell ordered investigations on the qualifications of applicants for judicial positions".

Nine of 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter on Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and McGahn listing 24 people who they said should be interviewed by the FBI, and urged that the investigation assess all three allegations of sexual misconduct.

Ford is a successful academic, a PhD psychologist who had tried to warn about Kavanaugh anonymously, and only then reluctantly came forward.

While 55 percent of women oppose his confirmation, 37 percent support it. Men, on the other hand, support Kavanaugh's confirmation 49 percent to 40 percent - support jumps to 59 percent among white men. "But it's not credible for him to say that he has had no memory lapses in the nights that he drank to excess". He accused Democrats of politicising the process and harming his family and good name.

"The White House counsel has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like and what the scope of the investigation is", she said. He has denied both accusations. However, if the president failed to do so, his nominee for the Supreme Court would most certainly not be confirmed. But this isn't about emotion, it's about facts, and all the facts end on Brett Kavanaugh's side. We shared a two-bedroom unit in the basement of Lawrence Hall on the Old Campus.

Coons had been talking to friends and colleagues about taking a "one week pause, one week only".

She has not accused Kavanaugh of raping her. Swetnik described Kavanaugh as a "mean drunk" in high school who was physically and verbally aggressive with girls. She stood out as being exceptionally honest, with a trusting manner. "I have a very open mind". She felt that everyone at Yale was very rich, very smart and very sophisticated and that as a Puerto Rican woman from a less privileged background she was an outsider. She said it happened, he said it didn't, and they took his word over hers. "She knows who she works for".
