Kavanaugh FBI Investigation Could Be Done Soon

Supreme Court Justice Kagan won’t discuss Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON-At first blush, Sen.

The president revisited the question of the scope of the FBI's probe in a late- night tweet on Saturday, writing in part, "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion".

As Kavanaugh and the Trump administration hopes confirmation will come this week, the Supreme Court began its new term Monday.

Murkowski is not on the committee, but also has not announced how she will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) talk during a mark up hearing about Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 28, 2018 in Washington, DC.

But, Trump said, "I want it to go quickly" since the lingering accusations are unfair to Kavanaugh.

Some Democrats have suggested that Kavanaugh has a credibility problem because he downplayed the effects of drinking, testifying that he never blacked out or had nights when he could not remember everything that had taken place. "Whatever they want to do is okay with me".

"It is reassuring to the public", Sen.

Bruce says Smyth told them he had "no knowledge" of the small gathering that Ford described.

Scott Pelley: Because politics has become too sharp, too partisan?

While Trump said that he felt baldy for everybody involved, his propensity to lash out and blame Democrats for his nominee's struggles was evident.

Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday afternoon to deny allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that he had once tried to sexually assault her at a small get together in the summer of 1982.

Senate Republicans compiled the list of four witnesses and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell shared it with the White House, the official and another source familiar with the matter told Reuters. Without those Republican votes, Kavanaugh's nomination was probably dead.

McConnell was clearly unhappy with the sudden turn of events.

Collins and Flake spoke throughout the weekend. "There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today".

The FBI is engaging in a weeklong probe into the claims against Kavanaugh. And the investigation could turn up information corroborating elements of Blasey's account, posing a tremendous threat to the Supreme Court nominee.

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer", said Charles "Chad" Ludington, a teacher at North Carolina State University.

She said justices engaged in lengthier discussions at the time and even worked on finding agreement on smaller points when they couldn't settle the larger issues at stake.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".

Only one or two Democrats are even in play as potential votes for Kavanaugh.

According to multiple reports, the White House has restricted the FBI from interviewing a third woman who's accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, in addition to prohibiting the bureau from interviewing former classmates of Kavanaugh's who dispute his sworn statements about his drinking, among other things.

But a report that finds no new evidence of misconduct could make the decision easier for the few undecided Republicans.

"A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove".

Trump ordered the FBI to reopen Kavanaugh's background investigation, delaying a final vote on the nomination.

"We can't have some kind of a perfunctory investigation just to give cover to some wavering senators", Sen. "I think we take Kirk Douglas in his prime". That investigation is supposed to be completed by Friday. The Arizona Republican is retiring at the end of this year.

Choosing between Kavanaugh and Ford, 48 percent of American voters most believed Ford as 41 percent most believed Kavanaugh.

"There's no value to reaching across the aisle", Flake said. He may have ultimately eased the way to confirmation for Kavanaugh.
