Kavanaugh confirmation: Call for more FBI investigations just a delaying tactic

Kavanaugh confirmation: Call for more FBI investigations just a delaying tactic

In a stunning reversal on Friday, the Senate judiciary committee asked the Trump administration to order the FBI to investigate the misconduct allegations - but only after the panel sent Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate for a final vote.

Today on the floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed that despite Democrats' continued delay tactics, the Senate will move forward to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

President Trump has instructed the FBI to carry out a further investigation into Brett Kavanaugh with a primary focus on recent sexual misconduct allegations.

President Donald Trump ordered the FBI to reopen Mr Kavanaugh's background investigation on Friday.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday afternoon said the supplemental FBI investigation would be limited to "current credible allegations".

"We have been concerned from the outset about the so-called limits on scope, not to mention time for this investigation", said Senator Richard Blumenthal, Democrat of CT and a member of the Judiciary Committee.

Flake, who is retiring, described to The Atlantic on Friday night his last-minute decision to change his mind on moving ahead with a quick confirmation of Kavanaugh.

Members of the Senate questioned Kavanaugh about his drinking habits and sexual experience. Kavanaugh has called her accusations a "joke" and Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.

After Christine Blasey Ford's and Brett Kavanaugh's testimony on Thursday, it became apparent only Kavanaugh had verifiable facts on his side.

However, gender justice was given a complete go-by in a secular country like India because of blatant vote-bank politics. The accused is entitled to seek bail from a court, not a police officer, but the magistrate would have to hear the wife.

Asked about the FBI investigation on Saturday, President Trump told reporters he thought the probe was "going very well".

It would be a risky precedent to deny Kavanaugh's appointment because of an unsubstantiated and unprovable allegation.

This is exactly right: the White House has to carefully control scope bc Kavanaugh LIED SO MUCH on Thursday that if Federal Bureau of Investigation pursues obvious leads, Kav will get referred for lying his ass off.

Since then, a third woman - Julie Swetnick - has claimed that the SCOTUS nominee would drink to excess and "engage in abusive behavior", toward teenage girls while he was in high school. While we may never know for sure, it's easier to doubt the allegations against Kavanaugh when there is an established history people creating accusations out of thin air. But she expressed confidence that no new information will be uncovered, noting that the allegations did not surface during the judge's six prior background checks for positions in the executive and judicial branches of government. "I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", Kavanaugh said. A second woman, Deborah Ramirez, claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party in 1983.

"They [the White House] can not say, "Oh, hey, only interview the people in their neighborhood on one side of the street.' Or, 'Only interview people from a certain period of their life, '" Sen".

Dr Ford's lawyer said her client welcomed the step but questioned the time limit of a week to hold the investigation.

Kavanaugh now faces several accusers who claim the judge sexually harassed or assaulted them. "It's due to their courage that the FBI investigation is going forward".
