These three undecided Republicans will decide if Kavanaugh gets on Supreme Court

How The FBI Will Investigate The Brett Kavanaugh Allegations State advocates condemn advancement of Kavanaugh confirmation

Nine of 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee wrote on Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House Counsel Don McGahn, listing 24 people they said should be interviewed by the FBI and urging that the investigation assess all three allegations of sexual misconduct.

President Trump speaks as he announces a revamped North American free trade deal and then takes questions from reporters, in the Rose Garden of the White House Monday.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes.

Trump said during a Rose Garden press conference that he wants the probe to wrap up quickly because the accusations have been "so unfair" to Kavanaugh and his family.

Kavanaugh has adamantly denied the allegation, as well as claims from two other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct during his high school and college years.

Democrats expressed concern about any curtailment of the probe, which comes after the Judiciary Committee approved Mr Kavanaugh's nomination along party lines on Friday before the matter goes to the full Senate for a final vote. "It's nearly became - I - I think for me it's, like, a part of my job description to handle this crap", Trump said.

Because the agency isn't running a criminal investigation, but performing a background check at the request of the White House, it is the White House that defines the inquiry's parameters. Mr Trump said, mentioning a term he has used in the past to denigrate Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. She says Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, witnessed the attack and that two laughed at her.

"I, for one, am waiting for the additional information that will come from the supplemental FBI investigation to inform me", Flake said.

The Times also reported Sunday that a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh has accused him of a "blatant mischaracterization" of his drinking, which the judge downplayed in the Senate hearing.

He accepted the deal with the SEC "without admitting or denying the allegations of the complaint", according to a court document. He'll also not be eligible to be elected into the Chairman position for three years , Time reports .


Judge has written several books, including one titled "Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk", and another titled "God and Man at Georgetown Prep: How I Became a Catholic Despite 20 Years of Catholic Schooling". Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's allegation.

State Rep. Geoff Diehl, a Whitman Republican who is running against Warren, told the Herald he continues to believe Kavanaugh should be confirmed, but said he's always happy to see elected officials explaining their decisions to the public.

After Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's testimony last week, "it was really hard to enjoy a beer this weekend", Jimmy Kimmel joked on Monday's Kimmel Live. Ramirez also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account, according to a person familiar with her questioning. Kavanaugh denies that as well.

Dianne Feinstein of California, have called for the White House to back up its assurances about the FBI investigation by revealing what, specifically, it has written in its instructions.

Republicans control 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has the vote on pace for this Tuesday.

Three days ago, the Republican senator single-handedly delayed Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings by insisting on an FBI investigation as a condition for his support.

Mitchell also points out Ford claimed to want to keep her story confidential, but called the tipline at the Washington Post even before her claim was presented to Sen.

Swetnick's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but was willing to co-operate with investigators.
