Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations 'scary time' for men falsely accused

Lawyer Kavanaugh accuser cooperating with FBI

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee said she thought a Friday vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of sexual misconduct allegations against him.

"We'll have an F.B.I. report this week, and we'll have a vote this week", he told reporters Tuesday following a GOP policy luncheon, according to The New York Times.

President Trump said that if Kavanaugh did lie to Congress, then "that would not be acceptable", but the White House has said the administration does not feel that Kavanaugh lied under oath. "But now you're guilty until proven innocent. It's a very scary situation where you're guilty until proven innocent". Flake mostly attempts to avoid eye contact and stay silent, but the women and reporters filming prevent the elevator doors from closing.

But forget the 22 women who alleged that Trump groped, grabbed and kissed them. Rough Cut (no reporter narration). All of them", Mr. Schumer told reporters, adding, "We have nothing to do with delay.

McConnell referred to Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Swetnick, as a "tabloid lawyer" and said he is pushing allegations about "one wild party after another filled with sexual violence for which there happened to be zero witnesses".

Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the allegations made against them.

Former classmates have stepped forward to challenge Mr Kavanaugh's testimony about his drinking.

In a statement released Sunday, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's said he is "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale".

Former FBI agent explains Kavanaugh investigation process
Trump has instructed the FBI to re-open its background investigation for one week at the request of the Judiciary Committee . The Senate is set to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination after the FBI investigation concludes sometime this week.

Trump reopens FBI investigation into Kavanaugh
President Donald Trump ordered the FBI on Friday afternoon to reopen the background investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh .

The FBI has finished interviewing Mr Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge, who was said to have attended a high school gathering in the early 1980s where Christine Blasey Ford says she was sexually assaulted by the Supreme Court nominee.

Ms Brookes said she remembered the night he was pledging to a fraternity.

His attorney, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, wouldn't say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked. "I find it not plausible at all that he remembers everything he did that night". "The White House also could resist inquiries into new allegations, the people said".

Twenty-three year-old Westchesterite Maria Gallagher is one of two women - the other being Ana Maria Archila of Queens - making national headlines after confronting Senate Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) in an elevator last week, just before the committee voted on whether or not to recommend Judge Brett Kavanaugh's supreme court nomination be sent to the full senate for a vote.

The strategy came as the FBI conducts a limited investigation into allegations of sexual assault by Kavanaugh but with great uncertainty about whether the probe will unearth anything conclusive by the end of the week, when Republicans are pressing for a vote.

Trump's comments echoed remarks his son Donald Trump Jr. made in an interview with the Daily Mail on Monday, when he was asked if he is more afraid for his sons or his daughters in the wake of the reaction to the allegations against Kavanaugh.

"All the Senators will be able to look at it", McConnell said. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and other lawmakers, the Senate last Friday agreed the FBI could investigate for up to a week, meaning its deadline is this Friday.
