What The FBI Is Looking For In Its Brett Kavanaugh Investigation

UB40 Want Nothing to Do With Brett Kavanaugh

Three women came forward last month to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual harassment or assault during his high school and college years.

While discussing his adolescent behavior, Obama said, "I was a thug for a big part of my growing up", adding that he was "mischievous".

He reiterated his previous statement that Kavanaugh "was a notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk".

Eight Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to GOP Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa suggesting there could have been something in previous Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh related to inappropriate sexual behavior or alcohol abuse.

Reports say the FBI has completed its latest investigation into allegations Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at a party when they were in high school. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations. The Senate is likely to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by the end of the week.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday echoed the president's newly aggressive approach.

At the same time, a backlash to that backlash has begun brewing in conservative circles.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said he asked during a lunch meeting with other Republican senators if multiple copies could be made available, but it was unclear whether GOP leaders agreed to the request.

As Senate Republican leaders marched toward a final vote on Kavanaugh's nomination, perhaps over the weekend, the three Republicans who could be key to whether Kavanaugh is confirmed - Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski -criticized Trump for his remarks about Ford at a political rally in MS on Tuesday.

Trump himself didn't respond publicly to the criticism.

His opening statement suggested the inquiry into Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation was motivated by Democratic bitterness over the 2016 election and his role in the investigation of former USA president Bill Clinton.

Anticipation for the report built as Republicans assessed the impact of Trump's Tuesday night tirade against Ford. "You are truly guilty until proven innocent".

"How did you get home?"

She said Mr Trump was "pointing out factual inconsistencies".

Asked if Trump was anxious that his comments would jeopardise votes from swing Republican senators, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "I don't think so. I know this because I heard Brett and his friends using these terms on multiple occasions".

"I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", Trump said. He said he disagreed with how Trump disparaged Ford, but, he added, "It can be worse".

As the crowd cheered and laughed, Trump continued: 'What neighborhood was it in? "We want Kavanaugh!" had quieted.

"Think of your son".

Trump's comments echoed a message his son, Donald Trump Jr., relayed in an interview that aired this week on DailyMailTV.

"I don't like what the president said last night". "I don't think there would be any difficulty". Trump said when he goes to political rallies, which are organized by Republicans, he sees that voters are angry at the "vicious and despicable" way Democrats are treating his nominee.

Meanwhile, President Trump put out a tweet supporting the judge, saying: "'Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh", Trump tweeted Wednesday evening. NPR's Danielle Kurtzleben reported recently on how women have swung further towards the Democrats this year than in elections going back at least two decades.
