Donald Trump says he wants 'comprehensive' FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh gives his opening statement Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee

Running for re-election is Democrat Joe Manchin, who both parties are wooing in the Kavanaugh confirmation fight. Joseph McCarthy used unfounded allegations to accuse people of being communists without firm evidence, ruining their reputations. A slim majority of white voters, 51 percent, say Kavanaugh should be confirmed, while 81 percent of black voters and 65 percent of Hispanic voters say he should be rejected. "They better put the resources there to be able to do a fair and complete investigation in a one-week period".

That's according to Eric Bruce, the attorney for Patrick "P.J". Ford has said she came forward only after her named leaked out and reporters started contacting her.

Donnelly, who had been a "maybe" on confirming the nominee facing allegations of sexual assault, on Friday stated that he won't support Judge Kavanaugh.

Some Democratic members of Congress have accused the White House of stopping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses. "But most people will speak to them".

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".

An FBI investigation is still underway, so why would she conclude that Dr. Ford's case can not be prosecuted?

Sen. Susan Collins said Sunday she is confident in the investigation and "that the FBI will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews".

Voters were also divided on whether Kavanaugh was honest, as 46 percent say yes and 43 percent said no.

A third woman, Julie Swetnick, has also accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. The consent for a fresh probe was a concession by the Trump administration and Republicans who had strongly contended that Kavanaugh had been thoroughly vetted numerous times.

"It's unfair to him at this point", Trump said.

Speaking to the issue of the scope of the FBI's investigation, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said White House counsel Don McGahn, who is managing Kavanaugh's nomination, "has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like, and what the scope of the investigation is".

Julia Swetnick says she went to house parties attended by Mr Kavanaugh in the early 1980s, where she said he and his friends tried to "spike" girls' drinks.

"We're not going to give it to them", Trump said.

President Trump said Monday he wants a "comprehensive" re-investigation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh so long as it's over within the one-week timetable as laid out in the Senate compromise reached Friday.

Trump suggested "there are bad reports on everybody" present in the Rose Garden.

"FBI's hands must not be tied in this investigation". She said she managed to escape after Judge jumped on them, sending them tumbling and giving her an opportunity to get out of the room. In the end, the nomination of Kavanaugh may not only tarnish the reputation of Congress, but also shake Americans' confidence in our Supreme Court.

Even with a full court, Kagan said consensus-building, "especially perhaps in a time of acrimony and partisanship in the country at large, makes a lot of sense". Trump Jr. tells DailyMail TV that he found the situation "scary" and that lives could be ruined by false claims. He spoke during an interview set to air Monday.

Instead, Comey coated his assessment in punditry and contradicted other officials who have commented on the record about the Kavanaugh case.

Mitchell said the second problem was that Ford has been inconsistent with identifying Kavanaugh.

"How could you not [believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford]?" Sen.

The FBI is engaging in a weeklong probe into the claims against Kavanaugh. Rachel Mitchell wrote that she did not believe a "reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the committee".

Of course, a Senate confirmation hearing is not a criminal trial, which Mitchell acknowledged.

At another point, he said, "I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do whatever they have to do to get to the answer". Kavanaugh denied her accusations and those of two other women who since have accused him of sexual misconduct.
