What Difference Would It Make If The FBI Were To Investigate Kavanaugh?

'100 per cent': Kavanaugh accuser has no doubt he assaulted her

Understand that Kavanaugh is not confirmed as a Supreme Court justice yet; we'll now sit through a series of votes leading up to a potential confirmation from the Senate itself.

Trumphad challenged Ford's account in the past and came out forcefully in support of Kavanaugh after his emotional testimony Thursday afternoon. Yesterday, we head compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh.

Those allegations have been refuted in statements by the witnesses she says were at the party, but Ms. Blasey Ford's powerful testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday left too many questions for many senators, and it became clear Judge Kavanaugh would struggle to be confirmed absent the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

But Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona said at the last minute that he could not promise to vote for Kavanaugh on the Senate floor and called for a delay of up to a week for a further investigation of sexual assault accusations.

Trump said he had only just learned about an agreement Senate Republican leaders reached with Sen.

And U.S. President Donald Trump appeared to be on his best behaviour Friday before confirming in a statement that the White House would authorize an investigation "limited in scope" and within the time frame agreed to by the committee. "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting".

That will, of course, throw off the schedule Republican leaders had in mind: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) eyed a quick floor vote on on the nominee, possibly as early as tomorrow.

Suns could target point guard in potential 3-team deal involving Butler
Head coach Tom Thibodeau is probably Butler's biggest fan in the world and has coached him on two different teams. None of the original three teams on his list have a star player to give Minnesota in return.

Leahy released a statement on Friday morning, in which he reiterated his decision to vote against Kavanaugh's nomination.

In his comments about Ford's testimony, Trump said, "certainly she was a very credible witness". In recent weeks, he's acted as a committee liaison to the Democrats and moderates Republicans urging a slower process.

Flake is a particularly unique position as he is the only member of this group who also sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is now still scheduled to vote on whether to sign off on Kavanaugh's nomination Friday morning. Only the White House can do that, and President Trump announced Friday afternoon he would do so, ordering the FBI to investigate his nominee.

Mr Flake and the other Republican swing senators, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, will hear a lot from Americans about what they think ahead of that final vote in the Senate.

Investigators compile information about the nominee's past and then provide findings to the agency that requested the background check - in this case, the White House. But what exactly the FBI will investigate still remains a mystery. But Ford wasn't abstract, either, and still she wasn't enough.

"And it is a time to talk with them honestly and even bluntly about what respect for others, especially respect for women and other marginalized people means in very practical terms_in actions and in words", Van Dyke wrote to the school community September 20.

Another woman said Flake was allowing a person who "violated someone" to serve on the Supreme Court.
