Senators pan Trump about Kavanaugh accuser

Senators pan Trump about Kavanaugh accuser

Republicans hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence a potential tie-breaking vote, meaning they can only lose one vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

"It's time to put this embarrassing spectacle behind us", he said. Senators are not supposed to divulge the contents of the agency's background reports.

He pledged that the full United States senate would begin voting on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination this week. She's running for a Senate seat in Arizona against Democratic Rep.

"There is no chance in the world that they're going to scare us out of doing our duty", he said.

The FBI's report on sexual misconduct allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh neared completion late on Wednesday as the battle over his selection by President Donald Trump approached a new turning point.

"Because the amount of passion and even anger and process that led to the hearing last Thursday and the markup last Friday, it's really led to some of the sharpest exchanges I've ever heard as a senator". "You're not helping", Trump ally Sen.

The President said Tuesday night that Kavanaugh's "life is in tatters". Now the New York Department of Taxation is "vigorously pursuing" a review of the Trumps' activities.

"Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory, and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to questioners", the letter goes on.

At a political rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford's testimony about the alleged assault in Maryland in 1982 when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17.

Grassley's staff then countered Durbin and said, "Nothing in the tweet is inaccurate or misleading".

"The committee stands by its statement, which is completely truthful, " the committee Republicans said.

Bell issued his vow on Instagram in the comments section of ESPN's post about Thomas being carted off the field. But he said he hopes they can respect their business and plans to talk with the team upon his arrival.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of ME told reporters that Trump's lampooning of Ford at a Tuesday night MS campaign rally was "just plain wrong." Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. "We will not be intimated by these people".

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the vice chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, told Business Insider that lawmakers understood the need to get over tense moments.

Trump: "How many years ago was?" "I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", he stated inaccurately.

The investigation is set to last one week as part of a bipartisan agreement reached by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "the president is pointing out factual inconsistencies. But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane", Dr Ford testified.

Afterward, law professors across the country began discussing "with great distress, the unprecedented and unfathomable demeanor of Judge Kavanaugh", said Bernard Harcourt, a professor at Columbia Law School. She nevertheless refused to answer how this might impact her view, and ultimately her vote, on Kavanaugh. "We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth".

Senators are not meant to reveal what the Federal Bureau of Investigation says, but it remains to be seen whether that secrecy will hold. Background checks do not traditionally contain investigators' conclusions about who they believe is credible.

The FBI interviewed several people, including three who Ford has said attended a 1982 high school gathering in suburban Maryland where she says Kavanaugh's attack occurred, plus another Kavanaugh friend.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fuelled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.

Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski were among lawmakers who objected to Trump's comments about Ford's testimony on the alleged assault.

In an interview, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said McConnell was "hell-bent on getting this done" this week.
