Trump calls Ford's testimony 'compelling,' orders Federal Bureau of Investigation to reopen Kavanaugh probe

Donald Trump Orders FBI Probe Of Allegations Against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavinaugh

Ultimately senators asked for a week-long Federal Bureau of Investigation probe to resolve the sexual abuse allegations, and Trump agreed.

As the FBI begins the supplemental background investigation of Brett Kavanaugh, Leland Keyser-a friend and named witness of Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Ford-reaffirmed that she "does not know Judge Kavanaugh" and "has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present".

Republican Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, called for a vote that would set up a later vote on Kavanaugh's nomination by the committee.

For instance, Judge Clarence Thomas, who was nominated by George H W Bush, has been a Supreme Court judge for almost 27 years and Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was nominated by the then president Bill Clinton, has served on the bench for over 25 years.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has voted along party lines to advance Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination to the Senate floor.

Jurgen Klopp explains why he substituted Mohamed Salah in Chelsea clash
Twitter was awash with reaction to Sturridge's brilliant goal . "After that long period out, he played an outstanding game". With performances like the one he put in in the Liverpool match, Chelsea fans must be hoping that the day may never come.

Archila, a co-director at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), a not-for-profit advocacy group that campaigns for an "inclusive, equitable society", and her fellow protester, Gallagher, have been hailed as heroines by Democrats and by global supporters of the #MeToo movement for persuading the Republican senator, at the eleventh hour, to call for a week-long FBI investigation before Kavanaugh's nomination was agreed.

Trump indicated he was sticking with Kavanaugh, saying he has not thought "even a little bit" about replacing him.

Dershowitz, an advocate of US President Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh, offered his views in an op-ed published Friday on Fox News hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee was to vote on the confirmation and possibly send the nomination to the full Senate.

Mark Judge, who Ms. Ford said took part in the assault, has told the committee he has no memory of the party.

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher.

Ford testimony 'credible,' a 'disaster for Republicans'
Christine Blasey Ford testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018. She said that Kavanaugh's declaration of "innocence" and lack of sexual inactivity in high school on Fox News is a lie.

Also Friday, several Democrats from states that Trump won announced they would vote against Kavanaugh.

Bush has been picking up the phone to call Senators, lobbying them to support Mr Kavanaugh, who worked in the White House for Mr Bush and through him met his wife Ashley, who was Mr Bush's personal secretary. He said, "Thank you", but didn't response to questions on whether he believed Ford's testimony.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford's accusation.

"We ought to do what we can to make sure that we do all due diligence with a nomination this important", Flake said. The committee on Thursday heard emotional and sometimes combative testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford.

"There is perhaps increasing sense in the Republican caucus that they risk getting in real trouble if they vote this guy through without a proper investigation and then some of these claims prove out", Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, told TWS. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. "I was concerned by the tone and tenor of Judge Kavanaugh's testimony yesterday, and I do not trust him to protect the right of women to access safe and legal abortion".
