Kavanaugh Investigation Wrapping Up - Senate Vote by Friday?

While seen as a possible candidate himself - a notion fueled by his plans to attend a New Hampshire event last night - Flake said, "I don't see that happening".

Chad Ludington, a former Yale classmate of Brett Kavanaugh, said the judge had played down "the degree and frequency" of his drinking and that Kavanaugh had often become "belligerent and aggressive" while intoxicated.

After Ford came forward, another allegation emerged from Deborah Ramirez, who knew Kavanaugh in college at Yale University, and who accused him of sexual misconduct in a separate incident during their freshman year.

"The harsh fact of the matter is that we have mounting evidence that Judge Kavanaugh is just not credible", Schumer said Monday.

McConnell criticized Democrats for their demands to expand the FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, accusing them of constantly trying to "move the goalposts".

Under pressure from some crucial Senate Republicans, Trump ordered the FBI last week to conduct a limited investigation into the sexual assault allegation made by Christine Blasey Ford against Kavanaugh.

A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters on Sunday the investigation would start off with interviews with only four people.

Kavanaugh, President Trump's controversial pick for the open Supreme court seat, has been battling allegations of sexual assault.

Democrats are raising new questions about the truthfulness of United States supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the USA senate.

Democrats on Monday expressed concern over Kavanaugh's statements about his activities and his alcohol consumption in school. But the President stressed again that Kavanaugh's life had been all but ruined by allegations he suggested were false.

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

Pushing back on the Democratic attacks, Republicans said Kavanaugh had every right to be upset during the hearing.

His attorney, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, wouldn't say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked.

In last week's hearing, Blasey Ford said Judge witnessed Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all three tumbling and allowing her to escape. She had accused Kavanaugh of groping her and attempting to remove her clothes. The email says, "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered".

Judge, a conservative writer, was a friend and classmate of Kavanaugh's at Georgetown Preparatory School, a private, all-male Catholic school in North Bethesda, Maryland.

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. The move seemed to be the result of pressure from several moderate Republicans, including Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME, who initially pushed for a delay to the Kavanaugh confirmation process on Friday after listening to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. He also criticized Democratic Sens.

Reuters could not immediately verify the report. On Monday, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee called for Federal Bureau of Investigation interviews of about dozen people who might have information relevant to three Kavanaugh accusers. But, on the other hand, we can't have this on the court.

Mitchell, who was hired by the Senate Judiciary Committee to assist Republicans, addressed the letter to "All Republican Senators", and said no senator approved the memo. On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh.

"And so, let me make it very clear: the time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close", he said. Trump did not elaborate.
