Trump says Federal Bureau of Investigation should not probe allegations against top court pick

WHAT TOOK HER SO LONG? U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein seen at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last Thursday first heard from Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser in July

A high school classmate who claims to remember an "incident" involving Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said on Wednesday that she may not come forward because she has been overwhelmed by media requests.

Through her attorney, Blasey Ford has said she is willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee but first wants the FBI to investigate the matter to help ensure all the facts have been vetted. Dianne Feinstein of California, alleging that, at a party during their high school years, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom, tried to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the third day of his confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, the U.S., September 6, 2018. Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley had invited the woman-Dr.

"If she shows up, that would be wonderful".

Mr. Trump said he relied on the Senate to resolve the accusation, which Judge Kavanaugh denied.

U.S. likely has taken over as the worlds top oil producer
The US has surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation to become the world's largest crude oil producer this year. The sanctions cover Iran's purchases of dollars, its trade in gold and precious metals, and its automotive sector.

"We will delay the process until it's finished out", Trump said.

While most Republicans have expressed support for Kavanaugh, they've largely been careful to not criticize Ford's assertions about what she says happened.

The president again brushed off the idea of asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen its background check into Kavanaugh, something he has the power to order, saying "it would seem the Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn't do that" and deferring to senators to handle the process from this point forward.

In the meantime, a GoFundMe campaign has been launched in an effort to pay for Ford's inevitable security costs, and it's raising money fast. "If they wanted to be, I would certainly do that, but as you know, they say this is not really their thing".

Women accusing men, particularly national figures, should be presumed to be telling the truth, he said.

Wrightsville Beach 12 brace for Florence to fully make landfall
In New Bern, at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers in North Carolina, the storm surge overwhelmed the town of 30,000. It is expected to make landfall on Friday morning, local time (late Friday, early Saturday AEST).

But Senate Republicans have signaled that if Ford wants to testify, she'd have to do it next week, not after the lengthy delay an FBI investigation would cause. "[But] I think too many people think it was too long ago [and] wasn't serious enough". "She is", Katz said.

Hill was then asked by anchor George Stephanopoulos if Ford has an obligation to testify if, as the president and Republicans indicate, there isn't an FBI investigation, and the conditions are "not ideal".

"Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women", he continued.

With fragile GOP majorities of just 11-10 on the Judiciary committee and 51-49 in the full Senate, Republican leaders had little room for defectors without risking a humiliating defeat of Trump's nominee to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy. "It is imperative the Judiciary Committee move forward on the Kavanaugh nomination and a committee vote be taken as soon as possible".
