Christine Blasey Ford will only give documents to Federal Bureau of Investigation

Christine Blasey Ford will only give documents to Federal Bureau of Investigation”

Given one week from last Friday to complete the review by the Senate, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was under heavy pressure to demonstrate that they were interviewing all possible witnesses to the three decade old allegations. When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense".

What does Prof Ford remember?

He vehemently denies this accusation, claiming the instance is a case of mistaken identity. "We hope that this reporting is inaccurate".

What is the FBI investigating?

One of his most vociferous supporters, South Carolina Republican Sen.

Sanders also defended Kavanaugh, saying that throughout the confirmation process, every single word of Kavanaugh's has been picked apart "while if anybody says anything about these accusations, that's totally off limits and outrageous".

Christine Blasey Ford testifies to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, on September 27, 2018.

The agency has also spoken to the judge's Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who alleges that he exposed his genitals in her face during a college drinking game. "President Trump won these states promising to nominate conservative judges who are well-qualified".

"How did you get home?" That's a very, very hard standard.

The president said: "It's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of". Well, you think it was...? 'I had one beer, ' right?

"This is what you get when you go through a trailer park with a $100 bill", Graham added, paraphrasing an infamous line used by James Carville, a former campaign strategist for President Bill Clinton, to refer to a Clinton accuser.

"I don't have any problem stating facts, no", Sanders said, snarking, "I know that is something that you probably do have a problem with". I don't remember. Where is the place?

During her sworn testimony, Ford told the senate that she was afraid of flying, small spaces and buildings with only one exit - trauma that she attributed to her alleged assault some 30 years ago. I don't know, upstairs, downstairs, where was it? What neighbourhood was it in? I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know.

"I had one beer".

"I'm telling all of my colleagues that this is the most despicable thing I've seen since I've been up here", Graham said.

The FBI report was due to senators following a day on which President Trump added fresh animosity to the already tense debate over Kavanaugh with new comments that mocked the sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee.

While the report's conclusions were as yet unknown, there was already a partisan battle over it as Trump and the Senate Republican leadership battled to corral enough support for a majority vote for Kavanaugh in the days ahead. Kennedy said it would be "silly" to threaten to withhold his vote over the report being made public.

GOP lawmakers expressed concern that Trump's comments could make it harder to win over wavering colleagues whose votes will likely prove pivotal to Kavanaugh's chances.

In Congress, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he is certain that the FBI's report will be finished and the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh's nomination this week.

Mr McConnell did not specify when exactly the vote would be held, but it is expected to be on Friday or Saturday.
