Donald Trump says he wants 'comprehensive' FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh

What would a Kavanaugh confirmation mean for the midterm elections? It's all about trade-offs

When told that made no sense, Democrats responded: "Whatever, as long as it takes until after the midterms". But he also said Senate Republicans are determining the parameters of the investigation and "ultimately, they're making the judgment".

Sanders said Trump, who has vigorously defended Kavanaugh but also raised the slight possibility of withdrawing the nomination should damaging information be found, "will listen to the facts".

Judge is a former classmate of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

"My White House will do whatever the senators want", Trump said.

The FBI moved quickly to question a number of people, including several of Kavanaugh's friends from high school, on Monday.

"This entire process has been an embarrassment to our democracy as Hoosiers watched firsthand how Senator Donnelly's liberal colleagues used uncorroborated allegations to create a media circus designed to smear and destroy Judge Kavanaugh's reputation", Braun said.

A second Kavanaugh accuser, Debbie Ramirez, met with the FBI for about two hours on Sunday, according to two people familiar with the investigation. That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tiebreaking vote.Trump said he believed Kavanaugh did not lie during his Judiciary Committee testimony about the extent of his drinking in high school and college. Bruce, in a statement, said Smyth answered all of the investigators' questions.

"The mudslide was cheered on and capitalized on at every turn by the far left that has been so eager to stop this nomination", he said. He's expressed concern at how a failed nomination will affect him politically, and accused some aides of failing to confront the crisis adequately.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, has targeted Friday for a vote on Kavanaugh from the full legislative body, a timeframe Democratic Sen.

The Northern California research psychologist claimed Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers.

Kavanaugh has denied that allegation.

Interested in Supreme Court? At that time, the scope of the investigation was requested by Flake, Collins and Sen. Joe Manchin's campaign office in Charleston and were charged early Tuesday. Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

Now let's look at what the FBI is trying to find out during its weeklong investigation of Brett Kavanaugh.

The announcement was made in an email from administrators to law students on Monday.

Kavanaugh was scheduled to teach a three-week course called The Supreme Court Since 2005.

US President Donald Trump surrounded by staff, speaks from the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, DC, remarking on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement on October 1, 2018.

In response to her testimony, Mr Kavanaugh said he had never assaulted her or anyone else. The 55-year-old soft-spoken Republican, who is retiring from the Senate at the end of the year, is a reluctant presidential prospect at best.

The committee approved the nomination, pending a reopening of the Federal Bureau of Investigation background check into Kavanaugh's past, which includes several accusations of sexual misconduct, and allegations that he lied to the committee about the extent and severity of his drinking while in college.

'I did also say within the bounds of what the Senate wants.

She adds, "What message that sends to women in America is that we are innocent until proven guilty in this country".

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh meets with Sen. He says there is mounting evidence that the appeals court judge isn't credible. "However, the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate it because she has no recollection of the incident in question".

Kavanaugh has denied claims of sexual misconduct by three different women.
