Who Talked To The FBI In The Kavanaugh Case - And Who Didn't?

Where Kavanaugh's contentious nomination goes from here

Where Kavanaugh's contentious nomination goes from here

Senators and a small number of top aides are being permitted to view the material it in a secure room in the Capitol complex.

One copy of the report exists for all 100 senators to read.

The remit of the FBI investigation came from the White House and some usa media reports have said it decided not to ask the FBI to interview Prof Ford or Judge Kavanaugh. "That's really all I have to say right now". "It's so backed up I might have to wait until tomorrow". Capitol police stepped up their security presence on Thursday, in anticipation of confrontation.

The battling commenced as the conservative jurist's prospects for winning Senate confirmation remained at the mercy of five undeclared senators, including the three Republicans, with an initial, critical vote looming Friday.

"This is all being done because they're afraid they're going to lose Roe v Wade", he said, referring to a 1973 judgment that paved the way for legal abortion in the United States, which analysts say is imperilled if conservatives gain a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court.

In her congressional hearing last week, Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when he was drunk at a small social gathering during summer vacation when they were in high school.

Kavanaugh defended himself by saying none of the emails on that chain were sent by him and maintained that he was not aware when he received that email that it had been stolen.

Even the president's close ally, Sen.

"There was zero, I repeat, zero corroboration", Daines said.

"We had many fears that this was a very limited process", added Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. Just because the White House told the Federal Bureau of Investigation what it can and can't do doesn't matter ... or does it? Democrats wrote that the GOP tweet contained information that is "not accurate". In a declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee, he said his wife shared details of the alleged assault during a couple's therapy session in 2012.

Sen. Collins responded to the incident, saying, "The president's comments were just plain wrong". Senator Murkowski called Trump's speech "wholly inappropriate" and "unacceptable".

Maine Senator Susan Collins called the document "thorough", while Arizona's Jeff Flake said, "We've seen no additional corroborating information".

Besides Flake and Collins, Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota have yet to declare their positions on Kavanaugh. "We will not be intimidated by these people". I'm the first person to say I wanted to hear from Dr. Ford. Bob Corker of Tennessee, who has traded barbs with Trump and will retire at year's end. But I had one beer.

Key Republican swing vote senators, who backed the one-week delay on a floor vote to allow for the FBI investigation, weren't tipping their hand quite yet on whether they would support Kavanaugh.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday echoed the president's newly aggressive approach. She said Ford has "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president", and said Trump was merely "pointing out factual inconsistencies". On Twitter, he hailed Kavanaugh as "a fine man and great intellect" and insisted, "The country is with him all the way!"

Thus far, out of 49 senators who caucus with Democrats, only one senator has not announced how he'll vote on Kavanaugh.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell arrives to read the FBI's report on their investigation into sexual assault allegations against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., October 4, 2018.

US President Donald Trump has again taken aim at Democrats accusing them of attempting to ruin Brett Kavanaugh's life. Republicans and the White House trumpeted the fact that the investigation found no corroborating evidence to Ford's claims, while Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) complained that the FBI's probe was not extensive enough.
