FBI hands over report from Kavanaugh investigation

Graham chides Trump for mocking Kavanaugh accuser, but adds ‘it can be worse’ | Charlotte Observer

Moderate Republican Susan Collins of ME, who also has not announced how she will vote, said it "appears very thorough".

While senate Democrats agreed that the investigation should be limited in scope, Feinstein said, "We did not agree that [the Trump White House] should tie the FBI's hands".

Their votes are seen as decisive, along with GOP Sen. Alaska's Lisa Murkowski said she'd read the report.

Democratic US Senator Dianne Feinstein believes the report is an "incomplete investigation".

As the Senate moved towards a vote, protesters were marching on the Supreme Court chanting "Say it loud, say it clear, Kavanaugh's not welcome here".

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said it was now time for the full Senate to vote on Kavanaugh's lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court - even as opposition leaders slammed the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe as "incomplete".

A preliminary vote will now take place on Friday, with a final vote being held on Saturday.

The FBI is expected to soon provide senators with the results of its investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college. This background check is different, requested by a trio of senators who are undecided on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

He urged his colleagues to confirm the judge.

The winners of 2018 physics prize will be announced on Tuesday, followed by the chemistry prize on Wednesday. A previous version of this story identified Allison as affiliated with University of Texas at Austin.

Special inquiries are different from FBI criminal investigations, so the White House counsel set the parameters of what FBI agents examined. Kavanaugh not been questioned either, Feinstein said.

At a political rally in Mississippi Tuesday night, Trump mimicked Ford's responses at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week at which she recounted Kavanaugh's alleged attack on her when both were in high school. Several people interested in speaking to the F.B.I. expressed exasperation in interviews with The New Yorker at what they perceived to be a lack of interest in their accounts.

The file was delivered to the judiciary panel in a sealed box at 2:30 a.m. and placed in a vault that already holds Kavanaugh's six other background investigation reports, a source told CNN.

Mr Schumer called for the report to be made public as well as the directive the White House gave the FBI ordering the investigation.

"What I'd like to do when we get all done", said Grassley, "because this is nearly rock bottom, I would like to have the future mending things so we could do things in a collegial way ought to, and particularly when it comes to Supreme Court nominations". Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

Republicans now hold a one-person edge in the Senate, with 51 of the Senate's 100 seats. The FBI apparently did not talk speak with any of them.

Kavanaugh rejects Blasey Ford's accusations. But he recalled details-which, he said, an eyewitness described to him at the time-that match Ramirez's memory of what happened.

As he flew aboard Air Force One to the MS rally, Trump was enraged by New York Times articles about Kavanaugh's high school and college years and alleging tax avoidance efforts by the president and his family, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Flake, an Arizona Republican, has played a key role in Kavanaugh's confirmation process. That is why when Sen.

John Paul Stevens, who served on the Supreme Court from 1975 until 2010, also criticized Kavanaugh's performance.

Three key Republican senators condemned Trump's remarks.

"I think it's safe to say the national spectacle the professional left has created around Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation process has now reached some kind of fever pitch", he said, adding the past 17 days have been a "feeding frenzy" against Kavanaugh and his family.

Mr Kavanaugh has said stories of his bad behaviour while drinking are exaggerated.

The picture that has formed of him since then in the press has been of a hard-partying prep school athlete and Yale frat boy.

The group says Kavanaugh told "outright falsehoods".

Complicating matters further is the presence of attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing Swetnick.

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.

Trump and Judiciary Committee Republicans have singled out Avenatti over his past work targeting the president and also argued that Swetnick is not a credible accuser.
