Senate Democrats suggest past Federal Bureau of Investigation probes found evidence of Kavanaugh misconduct

John Hain

US President Donald Trump is facing criticism from fellow Republicans after he mocked a woman who says she was assaulted by his Supreme Court nominee.

Eight Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Republicans members on Wednesday suggesting that past FBI investigations into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's background may have included information about allegations of "inappropriate sexual behavior or alcohol abuse", a charge that Republicans quickly denied.

Sanders, like other White House aides, noted Ford admits she does not recall everything about the alleged sexual assault in the summer of 1982. They have posted senators' home addresses and personal phone numbers online, visited offices and blocked one senator from being able to get to his auto.

"What neighbourhood was it in?"

"I don't know", Trump repeated multiple times. I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? But I had one beer.

"I got boys and I got girls, and when I see what's going on right now - it's scary", Trump Jr. said.

Amazon Increases Minimum Wage For Employees
Amazon now has more than 250,000 Amazon employees, and plans to hire more than 100,000 seasonal employees this holiday season. At first glance, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' statement accompanying the announcement suggests it's the former.

"Have a vote on the man", Conway said of Kavanaugh.

Mr Flake said on United States television: "There's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally".

The idea that people in the US are wrongfully "guilty until proven innocent" is an idea that wasn't manifesting itself politically on the right until last week, GOP pollster Frank Luntz told The Washington Post. I wish he hadn't. done it. "I say that it's a very scary time for young men in America", Trump said at a rally in MS where his adoring mostly-white fan base cheered his sneering humiliation of the woman, Christine Blassey Ford. Before casting the decisive vote in favour of Kavanaugh, Flake asked the panel to request the Trump administration to pursue an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of the explosive allegations against Kavanaugh.

Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

Democrats have called the comment a breathtaking breach of judicial impartiality that should be disqualifying on its own, while Republicans have defended the tenor of Mr Kavanaugh's remarks, saying he had every right to be upset.

Democratic Senator Kamala Harris, who is on the Senate Judiciary Committee, tweeted that Ford "deserves better".

Sergio Ramos will miss CSKA Moscow match because he needs to rest
He played very well when the team was more balanced and playing better in the second half. "We've had chances and they will come". Captain Sergio Ramos , fellow defender Marcelo and midfielder Isco were also absent from the squad.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday called them bullies and said it's got to stop.

Trump ordered the FBI investigation last Friday, limiting its duration to no more than a week.

"The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides", said Brian Kilmeade, a host of Trump's preferred morning show Fox & Friends.

Republican leaders and White House officials said the strict limitations on who would see the results are standard practice for background checks on nominees for senior roles.

As a young lawyer, he spent considerable time on the Kenneth Starr team investigating Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Appearing before the committee last week, Ford, a research psychologist in northern California, drew on her own expertise to explain how the brain processed traumatic memories. There are facts that she can not remember: "how she got home, how she got there, where the house was, what the date was". But while the FBI is investigating, they're not saying how they'll vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation, making his prospects uncertain. Voters will be casting ballots in Nov 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's party.

Former US Vice President Al Gore could be a good fit to replace Elon Musk as chairman, according to one longtime tech analyst. Tesla in recent years has become one of the most valuable American vehicle maker, with its stock worth more than $50 billion.

McConnell could start the process to set up that vote as soon as later Wednesday.
