Flake concerned by Kavanaugh's 'partisan' interactions at U.S. Senate hearing

Flake concerned by Kavanaugh's 'partisan' interactions at U.S. Senate hearing

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, says Kavanaugh seems willing to mislead senators about matters big and small to ensure his confirmation. Another Yale classmate, Jennifer Klaus, said she often socialized with Kavanaugh at Yale and vigorously disputed his portrayal of himself.

His comments came as text messages from Mr Kavanaugh's former Yale classmates reportedly show that the judge did lie when asked if he had prior knowledge about a second woman's sexual misconduct claims. Those documents, once completed, should be made promptly available to all senators well before a final vote on Kavanaugh takes place.

"You can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said.

Democratic Party politicians are raising questions both about the truthfulness of Mr Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the Senate, and whether he has the temperament for the lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

She declined to say exactly when it ended or what Mr Judge was asked.

"Today, Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered", Catherine Claypoole, associate dean and dean for academic and faculty affairs, wrote in an email, the Harvard Crimson reported late Monday. She argued that yelling and crying by a woman would be viewed far differently.

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer". "In fact, he was so unlikable, Saturday Night Live had no choice but to cast the most repugnant actor in the world to play him over the weekend".

"Unfortunately, that was too accurate", Leahy said during an interview on MSNBC.

Chad Ludington said that in one instance, Kavanaugh started a bar fight that ended with one of their mutual friends landing in jail. Jeff Flake said he was anxious about the conservative federal appeals court judge's performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

"They need to see it all", Kennedy said Tuesday. Kavanaugh has also denied her accusations, as well as those of two other women, while accusing Democrats of a political "hit".

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now". "But again I do believe she has suffered from something very traumatic, I do have doubt that it was Brett Kavanaugh".

Flake said that he is pushing the White House for "a fulsome investigation" of the allegations against Kavanaugh. A former FBI agent tells WTOP the bureau can get plenty done by the end of this week.

McConnell is expected to lead the efforts to whip support for Kavanaugh, along with senators who are close to the key swing votes.

The FBI investigation was launched at the urging of Republican Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

Make no mistake: The FBI is up to the task of making real progress in investigating these thorny allegations within a week.

"That finishes everything", Manchin said. "I don't know, maybe he'd be better - it's worth a shot", he said. But now her base is spread across Republican, independent, and Democratic voters. "So I don't think that's a question".

Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh to the top US court, said on Monday the Federal Bureau of Investigation would have free rein to interview any witnesses it deemed necessary.

Ms Ford has said Mr Smyth was downstairs, not anywhere near the event.

A lawyer for Mr Judge - a childhood friend of Mr Kavanaugh - said on Monday that his client's interview "has not been completed".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account.

Julia Swetnick says she went to house parties attended by Mr Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, where she said he and his friends tried to "spike" girls' drinks.

During his remarks, McConnell dowplayed those allegations. Ernst said Tuesday no information has come forward until now to prevent her from voting for Kavanaugh's confirmation.

And since all of these principles are sacred to Donald Trump, it's no wonder he finds Graham's idea "interesting".
