What The FBI Is Looking For In Its Brett Kavanaugh Investigation

Meanwhile, President Trump, who had been somewhat restrained in his comments about all this, shifted course Tuesday at a political rally in MS, where he mocked Ford.

And Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine who caucuses with Democrats, said on CNN's "New Day" that Trump's comments "made me feel sort of sick".

On NBC's "Today" show Wednesday, Sen. Mimicking Ford, he said, "I had one beer!" "I just say it's kind of appalling".

Senator Susan Collins of ME, another closely-watched Republican vote, also rebuked Trump for going after Ford, telling reporters on Capitol Hill: "The president's comments were just plain wrong".

Trump's aggressive criticism of Ford seems to reflect the sentiments of some of his conservative supporters. The ultimate objective of Democrats - both on the Senate Judiciary Committee and in the Senate as a whole - he says "is to defeat Kavanaugh's nomination, drum up additional support for midterm elections, hopefully flip the Senate, and onward to 2020 where they hope to regain the presidency".

Flake has clashed repeatedly with Trump over his behaviour and is retiring at year's end. Five months into her Senate appointment, Hyde-Smith has proven to be the most reliable Trump ally, voting with the president 100 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight.

"The woman has been accommodated by all of us, including Senate Judiciary Committee", Conway told reporters.

Democrats contend the investigation has not been expanded to sufficient potential witnesses. Jeff Flake to catalyze the Federal Bureau of Investigation report, said he didn't think witness questioning should be made public because there's an expectation of privacy, but that a summary of rough topics and number of interviewees should be made available. Garrett's lawyer, William Sullivan, said Garrett has voluntarily cooperated with the FBI's reopened background check, but he declined to comment further.

The main focus of the FBI investigation has been accusations by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school. Trump said, reiterating a question Ford was asked by the committee. Smyth and Leland Keyser.

The poll has less rosy news for Republicans as a Quinnipiac poll released at the same time: voters still believe they'll turn out for Democrats in November, even though Democrats have treated the Supreme Court nomination process like a kangaroo court.

Mr Kavanaugh denies any wrongdoing.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from September 23, just a week after the allegations were known, showed interest in the election among white men at 64 percent, higher than in 2010 when Republicans retook the House and 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark.

Dr Ford sat for a polygraph lie detector test in August and answered questions about the alleged attack, which she passed.

The senator said he is requesting the recordings because the committee has obtained a letter that "raises specific concerns" about the reliability of Ford's polygraph test.

"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law", it says.

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. Leahy's office didn't immediately return a message seeking comment on Tuesday.
