US Senate to hold procedural vote on Kavanaugh later today

US Senate to hold procedural vote on Kavanaugh later today

And too many people, energized mostly by women who are fed up with a system that chooses not to believe their believable stories of sexual abuse and worse, are no longer going to just go back and sit down - or fail to stop an elevator and demand a sense of morality from a key senator - after what they believe they have learned about who may be the next Supreme Court justice. Flake "asked me to come into the anteroom to talk to him about how that might be made more real", he said. Kavanaugh has strongly denied all the allegations.

"Why would miss Ramirez be questioned, but not my client?" he asked.

We know how Donald Trump feels about flippers, but he apparently has no trouble being a flip-flopper.

A committee spokesman on Saturday declined to elaborate beyond the statement.

Last week, Trump tweeted that "if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed" with local police. It was not one of their more notorious parties, because nothing remarkable happened to them that evening.

In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge responded to additional claims from Julie Swetnick.

Mr Kavanaugh denied the accusation and accused Democrats- who have opposed his nomination from the outset - of a "calculated and orchestrated political hit".

She has ended up helping the nominee on two crucial questions as the confirmation process shifts from emotion-filled hearings on Thursday to a one-week FBI investigation.

Leland Ingham Keyser said in a letter on Friday that she believes Christine Blasey Ford's claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her. But the attorney emphasized that Keyser has no recollection of the party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her.

The Post said the Federal Bureau of Investigation was also following up on accusations by Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman who accused Kavanaugh.

The timing of the panel's session gave committee members little time to digest Thursday's remarkable testimony from Kavanaugh and Ford.

"Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me", said 23-year-old Maria Gallagher, a volunteer with a liberal advocacy group. She told the senators that it was "a very unremarkable party" for Keyser. He already had been accused by another woman of attempted sexual assault when the two were in high school. On Friday, Smyth said through his lawyer that he was "happy" to cooperate with the investigation. Kavanaugh said he was "100 percent sure" he is innocent.

After Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) publicly announced his support for Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination this morning, the vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee appeared to be a foregone conclusion.

Senate leaders agreed to delay a final vote on Kavanaugh's nomination to allow for a one-week FBI investigation. Flake indicated he would take the next steps - leading to full Senate approval - only after the further background probe, and there were suggestions that other moderate Republicans might join his revolt.

Since the inquiry isn't a criminal investigation, the FBI won't be making use of a grand jury, according to another former FBI official.

While the precise scope of the investigation remained unclear, Trump told reporters Saturday that "the FBI, as you know, is all over talking to everybody" and said "this could be a blessing in disguise".

The FBI's findings will not necessarily become public.

A USA official with knowledge of the matter said the FBI could complete an investigation within a week, but the timeline ultimately depends on what is involved, such as the number of interviews that need to be done and whether newly uncovered information needs to be followed up on. The White House will in turn provide that report to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
