Now that the FBI is investigating sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, politicians need to stay out of it while the agency does its work, U.S. Sen.
If confirmed to a lifetime Supreme Court appointment, Kavanaugh would consolidate conservative control of the nation's highest court and advance Trump's effort to shift the American judiciary to the right.
Donald Trump Jr. has five children and suggested he feared "my sons" would be most negatively impacted by similar he-said, she-said allegations.
John Roberts now serves as the chief White House correspondent for FOX News Channel (FNC).
An appointment to the country's highest court is too important for the Senate to rush the process and let partisan politics affect it. "And we're letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like". An FBI report, although not a conclusion, will be given to the White House, which ordered the investigation after the committee finished its Thursday session. "The FBI is not tasked to do that". At that time, the scope of the investigation was requested by Flake, Collins and Sen. "They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of", he said.
She said Mr Kavanaugh was "very inebriated", and feared he was "accidentally going to kill me".
The FBI conducts background checks for federal nominees, but the agency does not make judgments on the credibility or significance of allegations.
Mitchell said she "likely" modified her testimony to fit the agenda of Democrats in Congress.
"I have to put myself in that spot, and you can understand why [Kavanaugh] was angry", said Flake of the man who stood accused of sexual assault, including multiple gang rapes - with nary a scintilla of corroborating evidence. He denies all the claims.
French singer Charles Aznavour dies aged 94: spokeswoman
The famed French singer Charles Aznavour , known colloquially as the "French Frank Sinatra", has died aged 94. News of the singer's death generated an outpouring of grief and gratitude.
Two other women have also come forward: Ms Ramirez, who attended Yale at the same time as Mr Kavanaugh, says he exposed his genitals to her during a college drinking game. Until Flake is satisfied that there's no "there" there with Kavanaugh and sexual assault, he's a no.
Kavanaugh has denied assaulting Ford.
While saying that youthful drinking should not condemn a person for life, Dr Ludington said he was concerned about Mr Kavanaugh's statements under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Senate judiciary committee agreed last week to investigate claims made by Christine Blasey Ford before the full chamber votes on Kavanaugh's appointment. Actually, as Mitchell notes, Ford's story has changed quite a bit.
A statement from Schumer the same day urged the president "to have the FBI reopen the investigation for several days". Most voters, 68 percent, say the investigation is a good idea before the Senate votes on Kavanaugh.
The administration denied it was trying to control the probe, which the Judiciary Committee said on Friday "would be limited to current credible allegations" and wrapped up within a week. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.
