Trump orders new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Kavanaugh

Who Is Ashley Kavanaugh? Wife of Supreme Court Pick Standing by Her Man Amid Tumultuous Hearings

"The Senate must vote!"

Asked by Patrick Leahy, of Vermont, for her strongest memory of the alleged incident, Ms Ford mentioned the two boys' "laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two and they're having fun at my expense".

The governor, he said Thursday, "continues to support Trump and this troubling nominee". Kavanaugh replied, "For 12 years, everyone who has appeared before me on the D.C. Circuit has praised my judicial temperament".

Carlson sent the letter after the Senate committee heard testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford - a hearing that gripped the nation on Thursday.

"You may defeat me in the final vote, but you'll never get me to quit, never", he said". Dianne Feinstein of California, asked how she could be sure that Kavanaugh was the attacker, Ford said, "The same way I'm sure I'm talking to you right now".

Fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, of SC, said Democrats' treatment of Mr Kavanaugh was the "most despicable thing" he had seen in politics. His colleague Brit Hume said that "the more hesitant, the more fragile she has seemed, the more credible and powerful she seems to the audience".

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., September 27, 2018. Though Ford is the only accuser testifying, three women have made allegations against Kavanaugh.

"For them to wait this long, for them to come forward and these women to make these allegations.it just is a huge red flag for me", she said.

Judge directed the letter, "under penalty of felony", to Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Diane Feinstein, through his attorney Barbara Van Gelder.

The White House confirmed that Trump watched the testimony aboard Air Force One as he returned to Washington from NY.

In addition to the conservative Senator Jeff Flake, an outspoken Trump critic, attention has focused on two moderate Republican women senators, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

The White House is pushing back against a call from the American Bar Association to slow the vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until the Federal Bureau of Investigation can do a full background check.

Kavanaugh ditched his prepared remarks and instead issued a blistering statement declaring the confirmation process "a national disgrace".

During 4 hours of emotionally intense testimony, Blasey Ford said she was "100%" certain that Kavanaugh was the person who assaulted her at a high school party in suburban Maryland in 1982, and that it was "absolutely not" a case of mistaken identity. "My responsibility is to tell the truth". Lindsay Graham after the South Carolina Republican railed against Democrats, accusing them of treating Kavanaugh "despicably". "The voters of CT deserve to know where candidates for governor - who are running to appoint Connecticut's cabinet officials and Supreme Court Justices - stand on Brett Kavanaugh".

"We're listening and watching like everybody else", said one official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the hearing was still going on. He angrily denied her allegation, alternating a loud, defiant tone with near tears of his own, particularly when discussing his family.

She said a drunken Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Mark Judge, pushed her into a bedroom, that Kavanaugh pinned her down and muffled her cries as he tried to pull off her clothes.

With Kavanaugh's confirmation vote set for Friday, and the schedule permitting his ascension to the Supreme Court as quickly as next week, Democrats' only option to oppose Kavanaugh may be impeachment.

"When Donald Trump wins, there are no rules [for the Democrats]", he said. "There is no question that Judge Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court, and in a different political environment, he would be confirmed overwhelmingly".
