Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on Thursday

The problem, of course, is that is all anti-Kavanaugh theorizing. The list, reportedly drafted by Senate Republicans, did not include former classmates who contradicted Kavanaugh's testimony about the extent of his youthful drinking and partying. "That issue supersedes all the others", Schumer said Tuesday.
Ford's attorneys say they heard nothing from anyone at the bureau; they say it is "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a deeper inquiry into the allegations against Kavanaugh without interviewing Ford. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in Kavanaugh's favour.
Senate Majority Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will hold a confirmation vote for Kavanaugh this week. Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.
Two other women besides Ford have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while he was a young man.
Ford also appears unable to remember key elements about the incident, Mitchell wrote.
Ford told the senate she was "100%" certain that he was her attacker.
"A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove". She told "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday that California college professor Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford's sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh lacks corroboration. On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who are widely expected to be the deciding votes on Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
"It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump said. But last week he called Ford a "very credible witness" and said: "I thought her testimony was very compelling and she looks like a very fine woman to me, very fine woman".
Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor hired by Republican senators, had only a few rounds of questions with Kavanaugh before being cut off with a fiery defense for the nominee by Sen.
One undeclared senator, Jeff Flake expressed concerns about Kavanaugh's "sharp and partisan" responses to Democratic senators during last week's gripping confirmation hearing at which the nominee and Ford gave opposing accounts.
"I have very grave doubts at this point but that's one of the reasons we so badly wanted an investigation so we could get to the truth of that rather than have to deal with surmise or suspicion", Whitehouse said.
Kavanaugh would replace Anthony Kennedy, who he once served as a law clerk, on the top court.
His comments come as Democrats are pressing for a more expansive FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.
Sitting Supreme Court Justices often teach courses affiliated with universities during the summer months. She has said she doesn't remember the exact date of the incident and Kavanaugh has denied being at the party in question.
The bureau has, however, contacted Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's who has said he was sexually aggressive toward her at a party, The Washington Postreported. She also said she had seen Kavanaugh try to get girls inebriated and disoriented at multiple earlier parties so they could be raped by a " "train" of numerous boys".
People who Ramirez says were in the room were among the more than 20 names Ramirez provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to talk to, but her attorney posted on Twitter on Tuesday that he had no indication any had been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
