Senate Committee Advances Kavanaugh Confirmation; Trump OKs Limited FBI Probe

01 October 2018

The full Senate is expected to start the debate on the nomination on Saturday and a final vote on his confirmation is expected next week.

The governor, he said Thursday, "continues to support Trump and this troubling nominee".

It may come as yet another blow to Kavanaugh, who, in his Senate hearing earlier today, had thrown a show of emotions, shedding tears alongside his mother, Martha, and wife, Ashley, during the hearing, and boasted of being "thoroughly vetted" and rated "well-qualified" by the ABA.

"I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination", Donnelly said. Democratic senators questioned her directly, but the 11 Republican members on the committee instead chose to have a female sex crimes prosecutor from Arizona question Ford. The boys' laughter was "indelible in the hippocampus", she said, using her scientific expertise to describe how memories are stored in the brain and adding, "It's locked in there".

Kavanaugh vowed to continue his bid to join the high court, to which President Donald Trump nominated him in July.

Even if the claims against Kavanaugh haven't been proved beyond a reasonable doubt, the magazine's editors said, "this nomination is no longer in the best interests of the country".

Flake - who had said Friday morning he would vote for Kavanaugh - threw a wrench into Republicans' plans Friday afternoon when he told the Senate Judiciary Committee he first wanted an FBI investigation.

Ms Mitchell led Ms Ford through a detailed recollection of the events she says occurred on the day of the alleged incident.

Mitchell huddled with several Republican members of the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday evening, but refused to answer questions as she left the meeting.

Trump had a more formal reaction after the hearing, tweeting that Kavanaugh delivered a "powerful, honest, and riveting" performance, and demanding Senate confirmation. Kavanaugh said the book is a work of fiction and Leahy would "have to ask him [Judge]". They convened late into the evening in a room in the Capitol with various senators, including Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, raising pointed questions, according to those familiar with the private meeting but granted anonymity to discuss it.

President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans have cast Ford's allegation as part of a Democratic smear campaign meant to thwart Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace", he said.

THE FACTS: The witness statements in question do not corroborate Ford's allegations, but they also do not exonerate Kavanaugh.

She and other Democrats were outraged that Republicans did not force a high school friend of Mr Kavanaugh and other witnesses to testify under oath.

Kavanaugh, who said in his opening statement that he "liked beer" and still does, denied he ever got so drunk to not remember his actions.

The Republican president has fiercely defended his pick - but said he would watch the highly charged hearing and was open to changing his mind. "The voters of CT deserve to know where candidates for governor - who are running to appoint Connecticut's cabinet officials and Supreme Court Justices - stand on Brett Kavanaugh".

"This has never been about the truth".

Democrats' tactics were "the most unethical sham", he said in a fiery speech. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of Kavanaugh's strongest backers, lashed out at Democrats.

Although there certainly weren't as many changes as some fans were expecting, the map is slightly different in season six. There's Bonesy, a dog; Scales, a teeny tiny dragon; and Camo, a cute chameleon who happens to be my personal favorite.

Kavanaugh is a former top aide in Bush's administration. "The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out", Kavanaugh said addressing the Democrats. Now, Whitman hopes Collins will consider how a yes vote on Kavanaugh will affect her if she seeks reelection in 2020 and, if she doesn't run, how the vote will affect her political legacy.
