Cornyn Suggests Public Might See 'Summary' Of FBI Followup On Kavanaugh

  • Supreme Court opens its new term on a quiet note amid the loud partisan dispute over its future

They include Mark Judge, who Ford has said was in the bedroom where, she says, a drunken Kavanaugh sexually attacked her at a 1982 high school gathering.

Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she had offered her full cooperation with the FBI in its investigation but had received no reply.

McConnell spoke as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its renewed background check of claims by three women that they were victims of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh three decades ago.

Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said in a media statement the judge was not truthful during his Senate testimony last week about his drinking and that Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" at Yale who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

In Ludington's statement released Sunday he also mentions an altercation involving Kavanaugh: "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".

President Donald Trump shakes hands with Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the East Room of the White House in Washington, July 9, 2018.

Kavanaugh strongly denies the accusation, but President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him.

New Haven Police Officer David Hartman speaks to reporters, October 2, 2018, in New Haven, Conn., about a 1985 police report involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Three moderate Republicans have yet to say if they will back Kavanaugh and they will likely be the key votes when the Senate finally decides.

"Now more than ever, HLS must send a clear message that it takes sexual violence seriously", the letter to Dean John Manning said, according to the paper. That the Senate hasn't voted yet is shameful.




Appearing at a forum sponsored by The Atlantic, Flake said he was concerned about some of Kavanaugh's sharp interactions with Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee last week.

The Senate request was for the FBI to investigation "credible allegations".

After witnessing the spectacle in person yesterday, the Senate owes Judge Kavanaugh an apology.

Reacting to Trump's claim that senators need to provide him guidance on who should be interviewed as part of the investigation, Avenatti said that "Trump is talking out of both sides of his mouth". 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.

Ford's attorneys say they heard nothing from anyone at the bureau since that Friday night phone call, and they say it is "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a deeper inquiry into the allegations against Kavanaugh without interviewing Ford. He's expressed concern at how a failed nomination will affect him politically, and accused some aides of failing to confront the crisis adequately.

The top Democrat in the Senate, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, wants to have a briefing with the FBI agent overseeing the Kavanaugh investigation and at some point he wants a version of the report to be made public.

He has also disputed reports the judge drank excessively. It's another big win for him, and a semblance of protection for us.

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

At his first Supreme Court confirmation hearing, September 4, he portrayed himself as a neutral arbiter of the law who is above politics, telling the Judiciary Committee that the Supreme Court "must never be viewed as a partisan institution".
