A look at what the FBI's Kavanaugh investigation will entail

Trump: I Could Change My Mind on Kavanaugh

"I will be voting no on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination". The White House said he even watched a feed on Air Force One as he flew back from NY at the start of the Senate action. On Thursday morning, that same committee heard from Ford who she said was "100%" certain Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.

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.

With a 51-49 majority, Senate Republicans have little margin for error on a final vote, especially given the fact that several Democrats facing tough re-election prospects this fall announced their opposition to Kavanaugh on Friday. Patrick Leahy asked her what she remembered most about the incident, Ford (a psychologist) responded: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense", she said, referring to Kavanaugh and friend Mark Judge.

What Republicans say is the due diligence on Kavanaugh is complete and now it's time for the Judiciary Committee to vote on whether to recommend him to the full Senate - and then for the chamber itself to decide.

On his way to the committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination, Flake was confronted by a woman who said she was the victim of sexual assault.

During the free-wheeling news conference, Trump continued to lash out at Democrats and label the allegations against Kavanaugh politically motivated. But it also allows Republicans an opportunity to clear the judge's name for what is a lifelong position on the nation's highest court.

He also called for a Senate vote in Thursday's tweet, but told reporters on Friday that it would be up to the Senate to delay the vote or not.

Senior Manchester United Players Frustrated With Jose Mourinho
Asked about dealing with fractious relationships with players, the Southampton boss said: "It's not easy". They were also unhappy to see their differences come out in public in the video footage.

That leads to the third important point in all the discussion about an FBI investigation: Democrats and outside groups want whatever the Judiciary Committee or the Senate considers to have the imprimatur of the world's premier law enforcement agency.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny the allegation by Dr Ford", Mr Kavanaugh said, his voice shaking with anger as he fought back tears.

On Friday, the committee voted along party lines to defeat a Democratic motion to attempt to subpoena Judge to testify before the panel.

Swetnick said she saw Kavanaugh behave as a "mean drunk" at parties they both attended growing up in suburban Maryland. But it said that the nomination was no longer in the interests of the country and "should be withdrawn". Jeff Flake that he would not vote in Kavanaugh's favor without a follow-on probe.

"I have done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", he added.

Earlier in the day, as he questioned Blasey Ford, Blumenthal blasted President Donald Trump for failing to properly investigate the claims of sexual assault against his nominee. "They'll make their decisions and they do a good job". "The Senate must vote!" Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska would do the same.

At times, Kavanaugh's frustrations boiled over.
