White House: FBI Investigation Into Kavanaugh Isn't Being Limited

State advocates condemn advancement of Kavanaugh confirmation

The White House denies it's limiting the investigation.

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, says Kavanaugh seems willing to mislead senators about matters big and small to ensure his confirmation. She certainly believes she experienced something.

"Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford's account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford's account", Walsh wrote in a letter to the Judiciary Committee last week.

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. After huddling with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday, Flake told reporters that he has struggled with how to deal with the allegations against Kavanaugh. "His credibility is in real doubt - doubt enough for a lot of Americans to say this man should not be on the Supreme Court".

This clears the way for several further avenues of investigation by the FBI, including interviewing several of Kavanaugh's classmates from his time at Yale.

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

But Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee appear unconvinced.

Decrying the "trauma" inflicted upon his Supreme Court nominee by allegations of sexual assault, U.S. President Donald Trump stressed on Monday an FBI investigation into the accusations should be thorough but swift. He said he'd held discussions with his Senate colleagues and the White House counsel's office, which is helping to steer the probe. We're not micromanaging this process.

"It's a Senate process".

Democrats are also questioning Kavanaugh's honesty, particularly over statements he made about his drinking in high school and college. "The FBI is not tasked to do that".

Another committee member, Sen.

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.

"I think the only person who retained their calm, and demeanor and remained judicious was the person who was first testifying - Professor Ford", he told KIRO Radio's Dave Ross. "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation would be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition". In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.

Collins and Flake spoke throughout the weekend.

Mr Trump said the parameters of the investigation would be up to the Republican-led Senate.

Ernst is among six Republican women in the Senate.

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

GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Jeff Flake are the other key senators.

At the same time, he asserted that he wants this investigation to be over quickly. President Trump approved the additional background check Friday. "This is something they are going to be doing 24/7".

'The F.B.I. should interview anybody that they want within reason, but you have to say within reason, ' Trump said Monday in the White House Rose Garden.

Who are Mr Kavanaugh's accusers?

In addition to Ford's allegations, two other women have come forward to publicly accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Kavanaugh has called her accusations a "joke".

Kavanaugh and Judge have also denied Swetnick's allegations.

" 'She has agreed to cooperate with their investigation, ' Ramirez attorney John Clune said in a statement". She says Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, witnessed the attack and that two laughed at her. Judge has previously denied any memory of any such incident.
