Trump agrees to limited Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Brett Kavanaugh allegations

Ford testifies that her only mutual friend with Kavanaugh was the man named by Ed Whelan

Ford testifies that her only mutual friend with Kavanaugh was the man named by Ed Whelan

Republicans requested the investigation after holdout Sen.

Peters and Mendler have been spokeswomen of sorts for Ford's family, many of whom have largely kept quiet as Ford's sexual assault allegation disrupted Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Flake said he would "only be comfortable moving on the floor until the FBI has done more investigation than they have already".

"That's what happened to me, and that's what you are telling all women in America, that they don't matter", she said through tears.

"I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh", he said.

Leland Keyser stood to be the ideal witness for Christine Blasey Ford by confirming critical events that would bolster her charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"Moments ago I walked out of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Kavanaugh", Harris tweeted after.

His request was quickly endorsed by a few other senators who have yet to make a decision.

But less than a day after emotional testimonies from both Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, the woman who says he sexually assaulted her, Sen.

Investigators compile information about the nominee's past and then provide findings to the agency that requested the background check - in this case, the White House.

The Judiciary Committee's chair, Sen.

Late Friday, by voice vote, the Senate took an initial step to move ahead on the nomination. Republicans were forced to go along in order to have the votes to move the process out of the committee and onto the Senate floor. The Kentucky senator feared it could not only heighten the tension around the delicate Kavanaugh proceedings but could endanger Republican control of the Senate.

On Friday, Mr Flake was the deciding vote as the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee approved Kavanaugh's nomination and sent it to the full Senate over Democratic opposition.

"They'll put all their resources they need to on it", Glasser said Friday.

"Don't look away from me", she said.
"Then, only at an 11th hour, on the eve of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation vote, did the ranking member refer the allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Another Kavanaugh accuser also alleges that Judge and Kavanaugh sought on multiple occasions in high school to drug inebriated girls for nonconsensual sex with multiple boys - an accusation Kavanaugh has strongly denied.

Other senators backed Senator Flake's request, including Republicans Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, as well as Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who has been viewed as a possible vote in favour of Kavanaugh. He said Flake had been a role model to him, "as someone who is willing to take a real political risk, and upset many in his party by asking for a pause so the American people can hear that we are able to work together on some things".

Wright, who's now a freelance journalist, told Vice that she's concerned about Ramirez, Kavanaugh's other accuser.

The woman who Christine Blasey Ford says attended the same party where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her in the summer of 1982 spoke out Saturday morning. Would he believe me despite that?
