FBI contacts Kavanaugh Yale classmate in its investigation

Brett Kavanaugh

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT listens to testimony from Christine Blasey Ford during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing at the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018.

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", she said.

Mid-afternoon, the deal was announced and praised as a victory for Democrats, who had spent much of the previous day calling for an FBI investigation.

The Arizona politician has since said that his support for Kavanaugh would be contingent on the FBI investigating Christine Blasey Ford's accusation of sexual assault.

President Donald Trump ordered the additional FBI investigation Friday at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Flake and then with Sen. Senators Heidi Heitkamp (ND) and Joe Manchin (WVA) may separate from their herd, too. My hope is that some Democrats will say "Hey, we may not change our vote, but this process was worthy of the institution, and we feel satisfied".

In her Senate appearance Thursday, Ford lamented her foggy memory but offered up a clue - an encounter with Judge at a supermarket he worked at an estimated six to eight weeks after the alleged attack.

"A thorough FBI investigation is critical to developing all the relevant facts".

However, he sought to make it clear that "this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week".

"I will vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh", he said.

"I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", he said. His only confused them, Ford's sisters-in-law, Deborah Peters and Sandra Mendler, told CNN on Friday. The risk grew exponentially after Thursday's testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, who told lawmakers she was certain that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.

"I'm very empathetic to women who've been through this type of situation", said Mace, 40.

Mark Judge, a friend and high school classmate of Kavanaugh's, is likely to be a prominent figure in any inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Emma Scott, an 18-year-old University of South Carolina freshman from Charleston, South Carolina, said that, while she doesn't doubt Ford endured a trauma of some kind, she wasn't convinced it could be tied to Kavanaugh. Three allegations have been lobbed at Judge Kavanaugh. He said Flake had been a role model to him, "as someone who is willing to take a real political risk, and upset many in his party by asking for a pause so the American people can hear that we are able to work together on some things".

Judge met with his lawyer Friday morning in Washington, after returning from being holed up in a Bethany Beach, Delaware, home.

He said, "Thank you", but did not respond to questions on whether he believed Dr Ford's testimony.

The prospect of a new investigation puts Kavanaugh's nomination in jeopardy. "Even if Brett Kavanaugh is innocent, he is still going to live with this the rest of his life". Red-faced and pointing his finger as he spoke, Graham, R-S.C., almost reached the same heights of anger Kavanaugh displayed in his more than 40-minute opening statement.

Graham declared that judicial confirmations would be starkly different from now on, noting the "process before Kavanaugh, and the process after Kavanaugh". He also said that a moment when he was confronted by women who said they had been sexually assaulted "certainly struck a chord". Would he believe me despite that?

On Friday, Trump directed the law enforcement agency to re-open the background investigation of his nominee after Sen.

"There's been a great deal of public discussion about the #MeToo movement today versus the Year of the Woman nearly 27 years ago", she said at Thursday's hearing.

Supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh gather inside the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The Democratic Indiana senator voted in favor of Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's first Supreme Court nominee, for the nation's highest court.

"This is just totally ridiculous". That left seven Democrats still in the hearing, including top Democrat Sen.
