Key GOP US senator concerned about Brett Kavanaugh's 'partisan' tone

Key GOP US senator concerned about Brett Kavanaugh's 'partisan' tone

President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that allegations of sexual misconduct against his U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, showed that "it's a very scary time for young men in America" who now may be presumed guilty even when innocent.

"It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you", Ford's attorneys, Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz, wrote in a letter obtained by TIME.

Mr Kavanaugh has also denied all the accusations against him while accusing Democrats of a political "hit".

US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats today of opening "the flood gates of mud and muck" against Brett Kavanaugh as Republicans sought to portray efforts to derail the Supreme Court nominee over accusations of sexual assault in the 1980s as "the politics of personal destruction".

"I think it's important that the results in some from be shared with the public", Cornyn said, adding that the "usual process" had been turned "on its head".

"I want to see what happens with the FBI", Mr Trump told reporters at the White House before he left on a visit to Philadelphia. (According to the report, Kavanaguh "did not want to say if he threw the ice or not.") UB40 have now responded to the news saying the band, like most people, wants nothing to do with this Brett Kavanaugh mess.

Mr Flake and senators Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation vote. So far, no Democrat has announced support for Kavanaugh and no Republican has declared opposition to him.

Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone at the hearing.

"It does us no good to have an investigation that just gives us more cover", Mr Flake said.

In a letter addressed to FBI Director Chris Wray and the general counsel Dana Boente, Ford's attorneys lay out the steps they took to offer their client's cooperation. McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week. Ernst told "CBS This Morning" Tuesday that based off of Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the "corroboration wasn't there" with the "witnesses she brought forward".

Trump reopens FBI investigation into Kavanaugh
Swetnick accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during parties in the 1980s when he attended Georgetown Prepatory School. He has already denied Dr Ford's allegations. "They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of", he said.

Though the FBI takes its orders from Trump, he said he's being "guided" by senators on the investigation's scope.

Senate Republicans and the White House on Friday agreed to an investigation lasting no longer than a week into sexual misconduct allegations, delaying a Senate floor vote. Sanders said on Twitter, pointing to a tweet from New York Times reporter Emily Bazelon in July disassociating herself from praise of Kavanaugh.

Harvard Law School says U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.

She lauded Trump and said to the crowd: 'Is he not the best president we have ever had?'

"If Kavanaugh lied, it's awful...unacceptable", Donald Trump said - and that's a long way from his unequivocal support for the nominee a few weeks ago.

The report is significant because Mr Kavanaugh has defended himself against claims that he drank excessively in his high school and university years.

Swetnick alleged in an affidavit that Kavanaugh was present at a party in which she was gang raped Louisiana, which Kavanaugh has denied. Sen.

However, a full Senate vote on confirmation was delayed for a week after President Donald Trump bowed to pressure from moderate members of his Republican Party for the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Ford said that Smyth was also at the party where she alleges that Kavanaugh attacked her. "So we are very excited for the opportunity to get our commodities out into Canada and Mexico and continue on with that great relationship", Ernst said.
