Trump rejects FBI investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh

Trump rejects FBI investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh”

As alleged sexual assault victim Christine Blasey Ford prepares to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow morning against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Ford's attorneys have just released her full polygraph examination report.

Judge Kavanaugh has also been accused of exposing himself to a classmate, Deborah Ramirez, during an alcohol-fueled Yale University party a few years later. "They didn't know anything", he said, apparently referring to the first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.

'Judge Kavanaugh is being considered for a promotion.

After Avenatti shared the allegations, a spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmed they were looking in to the claims.

In his prepared testimony, the 53-year-old appellate judge acknowledges drinking in high school with his friends, but says he's never done anything "remotely resembling" what Ford describes.

Each of the 11 Republican senators and each of the 10 Democratic senators on the committee will have a chance to ask five minutes of questions, Grassley said.

Whether Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court is still viable.

Democrats have demanded that Mr Trump withdraw Mr Kavanaugh's nomination or order an FBI investigation after the third woman came forward with allegations against the judge. Later, she told Sen.

In the committee's packed hearing room for hour upon hour Thursday, both Kavanaugh and Ford said the alleged assault and the storm of controversy that has erupted 36 years later had altered their lives forever and for the worse - perhaps the only thing they agreed on during their separate testimony marked by a stark contrast of tone and substance. "There is no judge, only a highly partisan process that includes members of the Senate who have spent the last week rallying around Kavanaugh and discounting Blasey Ford".

Graham is also echoing Republican talking points that characterize Democrats as engaging in a smear campaign to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, which in turn suggest Kavanaugh's accusers are not credible.

The author of the letter said their daughter was approached by the friend on September 21, 2018, wondering what to do.

"I heard Brett and Mark leave the bedroom laughing and loudly walk down the narrow stairs, pin-balling off the walls on the way down", she said. "I don't know who this is and this never happened". "And they go into a room, and I guarantee you, they laugh like hell at what they pulled off on you and on the public, they laugh like hell".

Ford admits to not remembering all the details but wants to share the ones she does remember. Her attorney, Michael Avenatti, who also represents a porn actress who is suing Trump, provided her sworn declaration to the Judiciary Committee. He said he has never had a "sexual or physical encounter of any kind" with her. The other accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in college. He is asking for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court where he will have the opportunity to rule on matters that will impact Americans for decades.
