FBI’s Kavanaugh Investigation: Full Facts, No Spin

NEW YORK NY- FEBRUARY 03 Alan Dershowitz attends Hulu Presents

President Donald Trump has ordered the FBI to reopen the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday referred for criminal investigation the apparent false statements made to committee investigators alleging misconduct by Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Instead he wanted the one-week delay on a final vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation while allowing the nomination to move out of committee to the full Senate.

Senate Republicans compiled the list of four witnesses, and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell shared it with the White House, the official and another source familiar with the matter told Reuters. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said they wouldn't vote in favor of the judge's confirmation without one.

Trump has now determined that he and he alone will be the sole arbiter of whether a woman's claims of sexual assault and misogyny are credible.

The first of Kavanaugh's accusers, Dr. Christine Ford, provided a list of witnesses to corroborate her claim.

Ford has alleged Judge was present in the room with her and Kavanaugh when the nominee allegedly assaulted her. Judge has said he has no memory of the assault Ford described and does not recall the party, and Smyth and Keyser have also said they don't remember the party.

Then Grassley asked the inevitable question, and he did it with relish: if Sanders had been so cocksure that Kavanaugh needed to be defeated, did the fact that he was interested in the new investigation mean he was considering changing his mind?

Revenue from the 24-team Euro 2016 in France was nearly 2 billion euros ($2.35 billion). UEFA wanted certainty and decided instead on staging Euro 2020 in multiple countries.

He later tweeted support for Kavanaugh, saying "Just started, tonight, our 7th FBI investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Don McGahn is the current White House counsel, and a friend of Kavanaugh. Ms. Swetnick claims that she and Kavanaugh attended multiple parties in which young women were drugged and gang-raped. But she expressed confidence that no new information will be uncovered, noting that the allegations did not surface during the judge's six prior background checks for positions in the executive and judicial branches of government. "I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", he said in a statement issued by the White House.

"Look at the end of the day the Federal Bureau of Investigation is going to go through this process... the Senate is going going to have to make a determination to vote for Brett Kavanaugh or not", Press Secretary Sanders said while not commenting specifically on the claims on Swetnick.

Ramirez came forward with her allegation in The New Yorker, telling the publication that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at dormitory party while the two were undergraduate students at Yale.

Dr Ford's lawyer said her client welcomed the step but questioned the time limit of a week to hold the investigation. In doing so, they're creating a kangaroo court-style precedent, where any allegation without evidence can we weaponzied to take out political opponents.

Comey wrote that agents will "confront people with testimony and other accounts, testing them and pushing them in a professional way".

Ford told the Judiciary Committee that some weeks after the alleged assault, she ran into Judge at a local grocery store where he was working for the summer. Agents should get support from the Judiciary Committee for rapid immunity and subpoena decisions, he said.
