R.I. senator says what he expects from Kavanaugh investigation

Trump said Monday he still backs Brett Kavanuagh for the Supreme Court and that the FBI should do a “comprehensive” but speedy investigation

Trump said Monday he still backs Brett Kavanuagh for the Supreme Court and that the FBI should do a “comprehensive” but speedy investigation

The Senate Judiciary Committee has referred an individual who made "materially false statements" alleging misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the FBI and Justice Department for a criminal investigation. "The FBI, this is what they do. Certainly her body language was not exactly very good when they asked her that question", the president said.

Former associate White House counsel retweeted Trump's demand that the investigation be thorough.

Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to step forward with allegations of sexual assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, has not heard from FBI investigators examining claims made by Ford and others, a member of her legal team said Sunday.

"Even if there's seven days, that's bad enough, but then to limit the FBI as to the scope and who they're going to question, that really - I don't want to use the word farce - but that's not the kind of investigation all of us are expecting the FBI to conduct", Sen.

Republicans control 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation. But the Supreme Court nominee said under oath that they were innocent references to inside jokes that had nothing to do with what the common meanings of those terms typically are.

Three women have publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Who are Mr Kavanaugh's accusers?

"It's raw partisan politics".

Bacsik said he doesn't see any similarities "at all" and many Cowboys fans don't either. Those similarities are hard to see at this time, Jones was told.

Christine Blasey Ford's legal team said Sunday they have not yet been contacted by the FBI despite the narrowing time frame for the investigation President Donald Trump ordered Friday.

Trump said the NBC report was incorrect. In a tweet Saturday, Mr. Trump wrote, "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion". "Please correct your reporting!" he wrote on Twitter.

Kavanaugh has denied ever sexually assaulting anyone.

The constituent never contacted or spoke with Republican committee staff or Grassley, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation never contacted the constituent, Whitehouse's news release said.

"But when individuals provide fabricated allegations to the Committee, diverting Committee resources during time-sensitive investigations, it materially impedes our work", he said.

The New York Times reported that Judge will be asked about both the Swetnick and Ramirez accusations as well. It was reported that the White House named only four people that could be interviewed for the background check. White House press secretary backed up her boss, saying that the Senate Republicans are the ones in charge of the investigation. "This is just completely made up, or at least not me", Kavanaugh told the committee, according to transcripts. White House adviser Conway also said she had not discussed the matter with McGahn.

Although the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday approved Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, it was conditional on a new inquiry into what it said were the "credible allegations" facing him.

"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file".
