Federal Bureau of Investigation digs into U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh's past

02 October 2018

Swetnick said in a sworn statement last week that she knew Kavanaugh in high school and was raped by such a group at a party where Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were present.

On Friday, Judge said he would cooperate with any law enforcement investigation that will "confidentially" probe the allegations, which he has "categorically" denied.

The White House has authorized the FBI to expand its supplemental background investigation to include interviews of anyone it deems necessary to vet claims of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a Justice Department official and an administration official briefed on the development confirm to CBS News.

Among those unable to corroborate Ford's account was her lifelong friend, Leland Keyser, who has said she has no recollection of the party and doesn't know Kavanaugh, Mitchell said.

"On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer", Dr Ludington said.

President Donald Trump, in a Monday afternoon press conference, said the investigation should proceed quickly and that he stood "all the way" with Kavanaugh.

A Sunday Washington Post report added that, per an unnamed US official, the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not intend to interview Swetnick or anybody who was not present during the first two alleged episodes.

FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.

Judge, a recovering alcoholic, called the allegations "so weird that, even while suffering from my addiction, I would remember actions so outlandish".

"The White House counsel has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like and what the scope of the investigation is", she said. Then, after powering the nomination through the panel on Friday, Republicans agreed to put off a floor vote while the FBI investigated. On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh.

However, Senate Democrats have argued throughout the process that the proceedings do not constitute a trial, but a job interview, and that Ford's allegations are one of several causes for skepticism that Kavanaugh is well suited to the position.

"My White House will do whatever the senators want", Trump said.

Trump said he wants the FBI to do a comprehensive investigation. The FBI thus far apparently has failed to approach a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, whose allegations are the most extreme.

The president's eldest son has been a strong defender of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual misconduct. "We certainly want the FBI to do a real investigation, and we are working to make sure that that happens".

Republican Senator Jeff Flake reiterated two things multiple times in New Hampshire tonight - he is not sure about running for president, nor is he sure about his vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. He also criticized Democratic Sens. Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a party in the early 1980s when they were Yale University students.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".
