White House denies limiting Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry : Kavanaugh

Woman who confronted Flake Abuse led to my own 'shame'

"It is truth that is at stake", Ludington said in a statement. "It is now clear that Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly provided false testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee and the American people", said HRC Government Affairs Director David Stacy.

Questions about the scope of the FBI investigation emerged over the weekend amid reports that Senate Republicans were working with the White House to contain the number of witnesses and the allegations to be investigated.

"The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close", McConnell declared.

The Kavanaugh nomination erupted last month into a major controversy that jeopardized an effort by Trump and his fellow Republicans to cement conservative dominance of the nation's highest court and push America's judiciary to the right.

Kavanaugh has denied assaulting Ford.

Both Flake and Kasich, a moderate Republican who has spoken against confirming Kava- naugh, have publicly speculated about 2020 primary challenges to Trump. But as of Monday, Kavanaugh lacked the simple majority he needs for confirmation.

Flake, an Arizona senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee, thrust himself into the spotlight Friday when he broke with party lines and requested an FBI background investigation into Kavanaugh, a federal judge who is accused of sexual assault. "It does no good to have an investigation that gives us more cover, for example". Why even have an FBI investigation? Swetnick alleges Kavanaugh and a friend, Mark Judge, engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behavior toward girls" at parties in high school and were present at a party where she was "gang raped".

FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.

A third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations.

He described Democratic lawmakers as "mean obstructionists, mean resistors" and cited an unnamed poll that showed West Virginia voters favor Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"He said very intently, 'This is tearing our country apart.' We have to do something", said Coons, a Delaware Democrat.

Tesla shares jump after Musk settles with SEC
The settlement requires that Tesla appoint two new independent directors and establish a committee of independent board members. The complaint alleged that Mr Musk made " false and misleading statements " about plans to take the company private in August.

In particular, Democrats have homed in on his contention that the allegations against him are an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".

Durbin on Monday called Graham a friend who worked with him on immigration legislation but said "each of us has our moments".

He also questioned why investigators needed to examine the 53-year-old Kavanaugh's high school record. In one notable exchange, he snapped at Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) during the hearings.

Schumer said Kavanaugh was "rudely interrupting" senators in a way he'd never seen from a witness.

Not all his buddies from Yale are challenging Kavanaugh's drinking claims.

Charles Ludington said that he was "deeply troubled" by the judge's "blatant mischaracterisation". He said he may run - either as a Republican or an independent - if no one else does. "So, my assumption is once they are satisfied with the results of the supplemental investigation they would be satisfied to go ahead and vote". He added he did not want the probe to become a "witch hunt" and that it should be completed quickly. Jeff Flake makes an appearance here just days after he acted as the key swing Republican vote to move Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate.

"He's on trial for his life, so is his spouse, so are his parents, so are his kids, and he got mad".

"It's not fair. I think it's fair to do it to me ..."

"I want them to do a very comprehensive investigation".

"If he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences", Prof Ludington said. Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a narrow 51-49 margin. I want it to be comprehensive.

Still, Trump slammed Senate Democrats during a campaign rally in Tennessee Monday night. Then she revealed it, then she says, oh, we want more time.
