WH confident after reading FBI report on Kavanaugh

Where Kavanaugh's contentious nomination goes from here

Senators arrived at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to review the FBI's supplemental background investigation on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Senate plans to hold a procedural vote on Friday on Kavanaugh's nomination, and Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said he expected Kavanaugh to be confirmed on Saturday.

"Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault", Ratajkowski wrote.

The FBI, at the request of Democrats and a key Republican senator, Jeff Flake of Arizona, was given a week to look into allegations by a university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were teenagers decades ago. Confirming Kavanaugh, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said on Thursday would send a message that the "politics of baseless personal destruction has no place" in the Senate.

Besides Trump, Senate Republicans also began to aim credibility questions at Ford. Appold, who is the James Hastings Nichols Professor of Reformation History at Princeton Theological Seminary, said that he first heard about the alleged incident involving Kavanaugh and Ramirez either the night it occurred or a day or two later.

Rep. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.

In an interview, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Richard Durbin of IL said McConnell was "hell bent on getting this done" this week. One senator said it was about 50 pages long. "It's not like 50 pages of nuclear physics or anything like that".

Several Democratic senators that have come out against Kavanaugh said the judge doesn't deserve the presumption of innocence and one senator, Sen. "Our society is not a place where uncorroborated allegations of misconduct from almost 40 years ago, allegations which are vigorously disputed, can nullify someone's career or destroy their reputation". It will be held in a secure room in the basement of the Capitol building, known as a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or "Skif", AP news agency reported.

"The FBI was not limited in any way", Kennedy added.

They include three people who Ford says were in the house at the time of the party.

Hyde-Smith didn't answer. The Mississippi Republican, sworn in last April for a seat the GOP needs to keep, hopped on a Senate subway that sped her toward the Capitol.

'Venom' review: Sony delivers the worst Marvel movie since 'Elektra'
I have to think that the studio is thinking the same thing and somewhere down the road, the characters will cross paths'. For now, there's Venom , who seems to exist in a sub-universe all his own; no Spider-Man in sight.

Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, deflected, saying, "This is not a comprehensive FBI investigation on which we can draw conclusions".

Neither has said how she will vote.

Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga. "But thus far, we've seen no new, credible corroboration - no new corroboration at all". "There is no chance in the world that they're going to scare us out of doing our duty".

"We owe it to the American people not to be intimidated by these tactics". Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of ME or Jeff Flake of Arizona.

A handful of Republicans and Democrats have not decided whether to support Kavanaugh.

The confidential Federal Bureau of Investigation report into allegations that Brett Kavanaugh sexually abused women three decades ago "found no hint of misconduct" by the Supreme Court nominee, a top Senate Republican has said. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., is running for re-election while Sen. Kavanaugh denies the allegations. "But the White House certainly blocked access to millions of documents from Judge Kavanaugh's record". "Those fears have been realized".

"This investigation found no hint of misconduct". If they find wrongdoing, then it is their responsibility to report it.

Special inquiries are different from FBI criminal investigations, so the White House counsel set the parameters of what FBI agents examined. Leahy also said the White House "obviously controlled the process, and that raises questions of credibility, in my mind". "It looks to be a product of an incomplete investigation".

Kavanaugh, in a piece for the Wall Street Journal, defended his performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee while committing to being an "open-minded" and "independent" judge.

"There is significant evidence that there are other relevant witnesses that have not been contacted, not been interviewed".

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.
