Flake vows to vote 'no' if Kavanaugh lied

03 October 2018

Leading Democrats raised new questions on Tuesday about Brett Kavanaugh's truthfulness and temperament, as the Senate awaits the completion of an FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against the supreme court nominee.

Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him, but the president also said "speed" was important in the process.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell struggled to get through a terminal at a Washington airport on Monday as protesters confronted him, asking if he believed sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House amid bipartisan recriminations over the nomination.

Trump said a comprehensive investigation is "a good thing" for Kavanaugh and that while it was fine that the FBI wants to interview all three women who have made accusations, "we don't want to go on a witch hunt, do we?"

At a White House press conference, Trump said the treatment of Kavanaugh and his family by media and Democrats was "not describable".

"A couple of times I made eye contact with Mark and thought he might try to help me, but he did not", she said. "We can't set the calendar", Schumer said.

Kavanaugh has emphatically denied Christine Blasey Ford's allegation that he sexually assaulted her at a gathering when they were teens.

The FBI has reopened a background investigation to examine allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh dating to when he was in high school and college.

"Why are our Republican colleagues so afraid of making this public?" he said.

Judge has denied Ford's allegations. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.

While Ernst said she hasn't seen the final negotiated text of the trade agreement and was unclear on just how the deal would expand economic opportunity for farmers, she said the final deal would create an "even stronger agreement" and a modernization of the former NAFTA pact.

Ramirez, who alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself and subjected her to unwanted physical contact while both were at Yale in the early 1980s, has reportedly met with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"I don't think what he said is any different than what Justice Thomas said", Grassley said.

Swetnick, who is represented by Michael Avenatti, has alleged that Judge and Kavanaugh were present at a party in the early 1980s where, she says, she was gang-raped.

Is one week enough for a productive FBI investigation into the background of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh?

Flake single-handedly delayed Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings last week by insisting on an FBI investigation.

The president faced accusations of sexual misconduct from several women before he was elected.

When will the Senate vote on Kavanaugh?

The Post said the probe would now encompass the allegations of a third Kavanaugh accuser but wouldn't take an unfettered look at Kavanaugh's drinking or as a young man or examine the veracity of his statements about his drinking at the Senate Judicary Committee hearing last week. "Yes or no?" Few Republicans will answer this because they can not simultaneously claim it's all a set up and say they believe a heartfelt, honest witness. The investigation was initiated at the direction of the White House after a request by Republican Sen.

What she has said: "It is important to have a fair process for the sake of both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, as well as the integrity of both the judicial branch and the Senate confirmation process".
