Trump asks Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe claims against Kavanaugh

Mark Judge, Brett Kavanaugh’s friend, says he’ll cooperate with the investigation

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is once again digging into the life of Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh after the Senate Judiciary Committee made a decision to look into allegations of sexual assault against him.

Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed that despite Democrats' continued delay tactics, the Senate will move forward to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

Flake, who is retiring this year, said he would not be ready to vote for Kavanaugh until the FBI conducted a background investigation into the sexual misconduct claims.

On Friday, President Donald Trump directed the FBI to re-open its background investigation of his nominee after Republican Sen.

A source briefed on the matter said the White House gave the limited scope of the investigation to the FBI based on what the Senate asked. "They don't care who they hurt, who they have to run over to get power", he said.

The panel approved Judge Kavanaugh's nomination but asked for the further inquiry before the full Senate votes on his appointment to America's top court.

While the precise scope of the reopened background investigation of Kavanaugh remained unclear, Trump told reporters on Saturday that "the FBI, as you know, is all over talking to everybody" and said "this could be a blessing in disguise". "Kavanaugh additionally said that after facing what he insists are false allegations, he now "[fears] for the future", adding that because of what Democratic senators have "unleashed", he may never be able to teach law or coach girls' basketball again.

"While I've already announced my opposition to Kavanaugh because he has sided with corporations over workers and Wall Street over consumers, I strongly support a thorough investigation by the FBI. They would put that in the 302", said Chris Swecker, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation assistant director, referring to the form in which agents will memorialize their interviews.

A White House official told NBC News that Swetnick's claims will not be investigated. Dr. Ford's testimony was a powerful moment for our country, and I am grateful to her and all the courageous women who were inspired by her to speak out and share their own stories.

Deborah Ramirez accuses Judge Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a drinking game when they were students at Yale University in the 1980s.

Over the past few weeks, the nomination process has been rocked by several allegations of sexual assault, all of which have been denied by Kavanaugh. "That's bad enough, but then to limit the FBI as to the scope and who they're going to question, that - that really - I wanted to use the word farce, but that's not the kind of investigation that all of us are expecting the FBI to conduct".

Flake stopped short of where Democrats hoped he would land, which was putting a hold on a committee vote.

Both Kavanaugh and Ford testified separately before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

"I think the allegation that she makes is outrageous and not one Democrat mentioned it", he told ABC's This Week.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied both allegations. But the attorney emphasized that Keyser has no recollection of the party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her. "I think he's going to be fine". The committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by Friday. They have deliberately and consciously turned the confirmation process into a witch hunt, knowing that any allegation - no matter how freakish or unlikely - would be lovingly reported by their allies in the media.
