  • Supreme Court Justice Kagan won’t discuss Kavanaugh

Mr. Trump made extensive comments about his nominee in a press conference that was, at first, focused on a new trade agreement reached with Canada and Mexico.

Article III, Section I of the Constitution includes what is expected of federal judges in order to keep their spot on the Supreme Court bench: "The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish".

The extent to which the president wanted the bureau to minimize the background check's scope is unknown, based on competing press accounts and information from the White House, wrote Greg Sargent on Monday morning.

From that, we know that in her 2013 therapy session she said she was in her "late teens" when it happened.

The Supreme Court nominee called the sexual misconduct allegations against him a "calculated and orchestrated political hit" by Democrats angry that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election.

Trump said, "is also a vote to reject the ruthless and outrageous tactics of the Democrat Party".

The Kentucky Republican has used a Senate floor speech to accuse Democrats of constantly delaying and resisting Kavanaugh's nomination.

Another Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has challenged the truthfulness of the Supreme Court nominee's Senate testimony, saying Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank.

Ford's measured delivery of her statement and steady answers to questions from Rachel Mitchell, an Arizona sex crimes prosecutor tapped by committee Republicans to handle their side of the inquiry, convinced much of the nation of her credibility.

When asked about Kavanaugh's forceful denials of Christine Blasey Ford's allegations, Flake said he could understand Kavanaugh's emotions, but noticed the hearings also "seemed partisan".

Ford, a California college professor, was not questioned as part of a criminal proceeding, but in the confirmation process. Kavanaugh told the Senate panel that he had gone through six background checks, "six separate FBI background investigations over 26 years".

Lots of fans and follower have wished Wayne a Happy Birthday, and they can not wait to hear his latest album, Carter V . Will it be tonight? "It's mine, I didn't die, but as I was dying, God came to my side and we talked about it".

Mitchell provided details to each point using Ford's own testimony, her polygraph test, and the letter she sent to Feinstein. "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them".

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. "On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man's face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail".

To date, Ms. Ford has refused to turn the therapist's writings over to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker magazine last month that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a party when they were both students at Yale University.

Trump ordered the new probe into Kavanaugh Friday at the request of the committee.

Last Friday, Mr Trump ordered a one-week delay in a vote on Mr Kavanaugh so that the FBI could investigate the sexual misconduct claims.

Another committee member, Sen. There's no medical way I can say that he was blacked out. "It's about how does it affect you", said Graham.

A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters on Sunday the investigation would start off with interviews with only four people.

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

"The committee and the Senate have a really hard time dealing with something like this", says Dennis K. Burke, who was counsel for the Democrats on the judiciary committee during the 1991 hearings on the nomination of Thomas. Mr Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a narrow 51-49 margin. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in their favour.

The third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations.

Both Flake and Coons agreed that if Kavanaugh is found to have lied to the committee - the judge's nomination will be over.
