  • Kavanaugh confirmation: Call for more FBI investigations just a delaying tactic

Flake, who will be leaving the Senate at the end of the year, said while he meant to vote for Kavanaugh in committee, he wanted an FBI investigation of Dr. Ford's allegation before the entire Senate took up the matter.

The FBI investigation into sexual assault and misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh appears to be narrowly focused, according to top officials in public interviews on Sunday and CNN sources. Jeff Flake of Arizona called for a one-week delay to the Senate floor vote on the nomination so that the agency could investigate Ford's allegations.

On Friday, Trump directed the law enforcement agency to re-open the background investigation of his nominee after Sen. Agents should get support from the Judiciary Committee for rapid immunity and subpoena decisions, he said.

"We're not going to give it to them", Trump said.

Ford said Judge jumped onto the bed, knocking her and Kavanaugh over, at which point she ran from the room and locked herself in a bathroom across the hall.

Kavanaugh was interviewed by the committee on Tuesday about the allegation and categorically denied the claim. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, interjected. Sen.

After a dramatic day-long hearing at which a university professor accused Kavanaugh of pinning her down and assaulting her at a party in the 1980s, the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier approved his nomination in a preliminary vote along party lines. People briefed on the investigation told NBC News that the FBI will also investigate Deborah Ramirez's claim against Kavanaugh, but not Julie Swetnick.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney of Stormy Daniels who is representing Swetnick, wrote on Twitter that if NBC's report is accurate, "this is outrageous".

But Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Julie Swetnick, who has accused the judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations, said Saturday that his client had not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but is willing to cooperate with investigators.

Speaking on "Face the Nation", Klobuchar defended her questioning of Kavanaugh's drinking during high school, saying: "I think that is relevant because when I was asking him about whether or not he had blacked out, or maybe partially blacked out in the past because of excessive drinking, he just turned it back on me instead of really answering that question". They will present the evidence gathered in a report that will be reviewed by the White House and the Senate.

"The White House counsel has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like and what the scope of the investigation is", she said on "Fox News Sunday".

Kavanaugh also denied being in the same "social circles" as Blasey, indicating it was unlikely they'd be at the same party.

Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday, accusing Kavanaugh of trying to rape her at a house party in Maryland in the early 1980s.

"All I can say is that next week, this will be over", Sen.

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. But the attorney emphasized that Keyser has no recollection of the party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her.
