Republicans’ prosecutor for Kavanaugh hearing says she wouldn’t lay criminal charges

Republicans’ prosecutor for Kavanaugh hearing says she wouldn’t lay criminal charges

She said Mr Kavanaugh was "very inebriated", and feared he was "accidentally going to kill me".

Lawyers for P.J. Smyth and Leland Ingham Keyser, two others who Ford said were in the house when she was attacked, have said their clients are willing to cooperate "fully" with the FBI's investigation.

Trump didn't discuss whether he might release the written scope of work. And some of our colleagues said that, 'We'll be back here one week from now. "W$3 hy not agree to a one-week pause to allow the FBI to investigate all these allegations and allow you an opportunity a week from now to have the folks present in front of us for us to assess their credibility and for us to either clear your name or resolve these allegations by moving to a different nominee?"

Dr. Ford has struggled to identify Judge Kavanaugh as the assailant by name.

Trump said he does not think Kavanaugh is vulnerable in that regard.

"A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove", Mitchell explained.

Mitchell argued there were inconsistencies in Christine Blasey Ford's narrative and said no one has corroborated Ford's account of what she says happened between her and Kavanaugh.

Mr Trump, speaking three days after he ordered the investigation, said the FBI probe would be guided by what Senate Republicans want examined. Kavanaugh has denied being the perpetrator. But I never drank beer to the point of blacking out, and I never sexually assaulted anyone, ' Kavanaugh said on Thursday.

'Sometimes I had too many beers.

"When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", said. But Kavanaugh's testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee was not an act of intimidation or manipulation.

The award for best women's player went to Brazilian Marta, a runner-up in 2016 and five-time victor of the the award's previous incarnation, the FIFA World Player of the Year.

Reports indicated that the White House directed the Federal Bureau of Investigation to limit the number of new witnesses to be interviewed as part of the probe into alleged sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

They are expected to compile their findings in a new report for the White House that it would then share with the Senate Judiciary Committee. "The FBI is not tasked to do that".

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday voted to send Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court to the full Senate after securing a party line vote in favor of Kavanaugh's nomination from Republican Jeff Flake, who requested a delay and investigation. Dianne Feinstein of California, the Senate Judiciary Committee's top Democrat.

The FBI has begun investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by an intoxicated Kavanaugh in high school and college, allegations the appeals court judge flatly denies.

Trump repeated that he wants the investigation to be comprehensive, indicating he thinks the investigation is "a good thing" for Kavanaugh, as he believes nothing incriminating will show up. "It's about how does it affect you", said Graham.

Calling for a "real investigation", Sen. In a letter Sunday, she also asked for updates on any expansion of the original directive.

Whatever is the case, the separation of powers dictates that the president, not Congress, must order the FBI to investigate Kavanaugh. The Maine Republican supports the new FBI investigation and is among a few Republican and Democratic senators who have not announced a position on Kavanaugh. We're starting to see the first round of independent polling, and it's likely the Supreme Court nominee and his allies won't like the results.

With a 51-seat majority, Republicans can only lose one vote - if all Democrats vote no on Kavanaugh. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in their favour.

Other allegations also have been made public by Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.
