Ramirez attorney: Boulder client to cooperate with FBI Kavanaugh investigation

01 October, 2018, 04:58 | Author: Edward Snyder
  • The sex crimes prosecutor hired by Senate Republicans said Sunday night that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has a very weak case

The judge has denied the allegation, describing it as a smear.

In a tweet Sunday afternoon, Trump pushed back on criticism of the FBI investigation. This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Scott Pelley asks the Republican senator how much that factored into his decision to delay a vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"For them, it will never be enough!" he wrote on Twitter.

"The Senate is dictating the terms", she said on Fox News Sunday, adding she was not "aware of" any directives from White House Counsel Don McGahn, and adding that senators would need to answer questions about any limits they might have placed.

"As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week". The investigation, which was approved last week by President Donald Trump, has temporarily stalled a Senate vote on the judge's confirmation to the high court.

"It will be limited in scope", Conway said. The women said they had been raped and asked if that mattered to him.

Asked if McGahn had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation who it could interview, Conway said, "I don't think Don McGahn would do that, but I've not talked to him about it".

Democrats urged the FBI to investigate Swetnick's claims and voiced concern that the White House may be narrowing the scope of its work.

"The FBI is unlikely to open a criminal investigation".

The expectation is that like other FBI background checks, the results of the FBI's investigation will be private and put in Kavanaugh's file and made available to senators but not the public, as per sources.

Ford told her congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo of California, about the alleged incident before Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court in July. Kavanaugh has called her accusations a "joke" and Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.




The move followed emotional testimony from Ford and Kavanaugh at a committee hearing on Thursday that further roiled emotions and outrage surrounding the nomination for a lifetime appointment to the high court.

The others include Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh who Ford said witnessed the assault and Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, who she said were at the gathering.

Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor Republicans hired to question Ford and Kavanaugh, also touched on this date on Thursday in a riveting day of testimony seen by millions, as The Washington Post reported.

Kennedy expressed sympathy for both Kavanaugh and Ford. But sometime after the media learned of the allegations, Ford's letter was leaked to the press.

Cotton said that Feinstein should have shared the letter with Republican Sen. But they both said 100 percent.

What does Ms Ramirez say?

"As it went on, I think his interaction with some of the members was a little too sharp, but the statement, the beginning, I thought was pretty raw, but in keeping with someone who had been unjustly accused".

Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself and approached her with his genitals out at a college party, the New Yorker first reported a week ago.

An undated photo provided by Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence shows Deborah Ramirez. who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual impropriety when at Yale.

Flagg said the polygraph that Ford said she took will not be admissible.

Conway suggested on Sunday that the ire of many victims was improperly pointed at Republican supporters of Kavanaugh, as opposed to the perpetrators of the assaults.

Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, said in a statement that Judge "vehemently denies the allegations contained in the Swetnick affidavit".
