Kavanaugh Investigation Wrapping Up - Senate Vote by Friday?

Kavanaugh Investigation Wrapping Up - Senate Vote by Friday?

Chad Ludington, another Yale classmate, told The New York Times the altercation happened while they were drinking at a bar after a concert. Kavanaugh was among those questioned in relation to the incident but was not arrested.

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh meets with Sen.

A lawyer for Mr Judge - a childhood friend of Mr Kavanaugh - said on Monday that his client's interview "has not been completed".

Moments later, the President was asked if he had a message for young women. McConnell says accusations against Kavanaugh of sexual abuse in the 1980s have been uncorroborated and are unbelievable.

The White House had no immediate comment about Ludington's accusations. However, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday, October 1, said that there was already enough delay and the vote would take place this week.

Schumer said Kavanaugh was "rudely interrupting" senators in a way he'd never seen from a witness.

McConnell spoke as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its renewed background check of claims by three women that they were victims of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh three decades ago.

According to the Washington Post, Kavanaugh, then 17, was "stumbling drunk" when he pinned Ford down, covered her mouth and groped her.

Brett Kavanaugh has been teaching a course at Harvard Law for about a decade, the school said.

News outlets report the women staged a sit-in at Democratic Sen.

Alaska's governor and lieutenant governor, both independents, oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation, which could give her added cover as well.

"Senator Manchin is waffling on what should be a very easy decision".

McConnell again seized on the way in which Judiciary Committee Democrats dealt with the original allegations raised by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, saying that it opened the door to what he described Tuesday as, "a deluge of uncorroborated, unbelievable mud".

"I watched him", Trump said.

For a Justice Kavanaugh to participate in internal court discussion or oral argument of such cases, much less vote on their resolution, would involve not just an undeniable appearance of conflict but an actual conflict, given his stated animosities and observation that "what goes around comes around".

The announcement was made in an email from administrators to law students on Monday.

"No one is entitled to a job on the Supreme Court - everyone is entitled to the truth".

At the request of senators, President Donald Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a background investigation this week into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. "But even before those allegations, Kavanaugh's judicial record against women was straightforward".

Sen. Flake voted to recommend Kavanaugh for confirmation pending the outcome of an FBI investigation.

Ernst is among six Republican women in the Senate.

The most senior Democrat on the Senate's Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, has sent a letter urging the White House to release the written directive sent by President Trump to the FBI launching the investigation. "The initial defense that Judge Kavanaugh gave was something - like I told my wife I hoped I wouldn't sound that indignant if I felt that I was unjustly maligned".

Senator Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, asked: "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?"

Donnelly said he would welcome the opportunity to work with a new nominee.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes.

The new inquiry has delayed a final vote on Judge Kavanaugh, who if confirmed is likely to tip America's highest court in favour of conservatives.
