Sen. Graham Lashes Out at Protester Insisting On Kavanaugh Polygraph

Capitol Police eventually arrested more than 300 people, including comedian and actress Amy Schumer.

The editorial was published on the eve of a pivotal vote in his confirmation.

Republicans have a narrow 51-49 Senate majority, and vice president Mike Pence will be available to cast a tie-breaking vote. In an October 3 piece for Politico, journalist Matthew Miller stressed that Democrats needed to be aggressive and proactive in demanding a more comprehensive investigation of Kavanaugh.

The debate over Brett Kavanaugh's nomination spilled into the streets of Washington, D.C., Thursday as hundreds of protesters rallied outside the Supreme Court.

The entire exercise of having the Federal Bureau of Investigation reopen the Kavanaugh background probe for a week was to satisfy three key undecided GOP Senators, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

The reopened FBI investigation was prompted by reservations expressed last by Sen.

Earlier, the FBI delivered the results of its investigation on the sexual assault allegations to United States senators. He said the nomination process had become a national disgrace, that advise and consent had been replaced with search and destroy. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of ME, along with Sen.

A spokesman for Hassan declined to comment Wednesday night.

While the comments by Flake and Collins were positive, neither explicitly announced support for Kavanaugh.

The last undecided Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, said while leaving the secure room on Thursday that he would have to come back on Friday because he'd been kicked out so Republicans could have their turn.

The U.S. public is sharply split over Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Fueled by resistance to Trump, polls have found Democrats were far more enthusiastic about voting than Republicans for most of the year.

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, said over four hours of testimony that a drunken Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing at a gathering of teenagers when he was 17 years old and she was 15 in 1982.

What they did say was that the FBI investigation left too many stones unturned for the Senate to be moving ahead with a vote.

Trump has stoked outrage over the Kavanaugh hearing on the campaign trail, enthusiastically using it as Exhibit A in why Republicans need to retain control of Congress.

"Candidly, what we reviewed today in a very limited time. looks to be a product of an incomplete investigation that was limited, perhaps by the White House, I don't know", said Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Kavanaugh called the judicial system the "crown jewel of our constitutional republic" and noted that the Supreme Court is "the last line of defense for the separation of powers, and for the rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution".

Stevens, who was appointed by Republican President Gerald Ford and who often sided with liberal justices on key rulings, said he initially thought Kavanaugh was qualified, but that "his performance at the hearings ultimately changed my mind". Their decision could make or break Kavanaugh's nomination.

"The White House confirmation that it will not allow the FBI to interview Dr. Blasey Ford, Judge Kavanaugh or witnesses identified by Deborah Ramirez raises serious concerns that this is not a credible investigation", she said in a statement.
