Third Kavanaugh accuser to be excluded from FBI investigation

Sen. Jeff Flake R-AZ speaks with Sen. Chuck Grassley R-IA Chairman during the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting

President Donald Trump has ordered the FBI to reopen Kavanaugh's background investigation.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said oversight of the investigation belonged to the Senate.

The FBI and a spokesman for the Senate Judiciary Committee did not immediately return requests for comment about the Times report.

Conway told CNN's "State of the Union" that she was only aware of the parameters the Senate set on the probe.

"The White House counsel has allowed the Senate to dictate what these terms look like and what the scope of the investigation is", she said. Amy Klobuchar over allegations that he drank to excess during his school years, Kavanaugh asked her, "If you're asking about blackout".

Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh, as a Yale University freshman, drunkenly exposed himself and shoved his penis in her face in front of a group of classmates, according to an account she gave to the New Yorker.

Swetnick has claimed, in a sworn statement, that Kavanaugh and Judge engaged in lewd behaviour with young women at high school parties, and alleged the two placed drugs or alcohol in punch in order to inebriate women so they could be "gang raped" by other partygoers. The Judiciary Committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by next Friday.

Kavanaugh and Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers, testified publicly before the Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Trump said the NBC report was incorrect.




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.

While the precise scope of the reopened background investigation of Kavanaugh remained unclear, Trump told reporters Saturday that "the FBI, as you know, is all over talking to everybody" and said "this could be a blessing in disguise". "I mean, come on". Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) - for a "limited review". "They want to talk to Ms. Ramirez, because she refused to talk to the committee".

On Monday, I was with the organization that I co-lead, the Center for Popular Democracy Action, and hundreds of people from across the country who came to D.C.to urge their senators to vote no on the Kavanaugh nomination. Why do they insist on muzzling women with information submitted under penalty of perjury?

"To see his family behind him, as Chris said, it was anger, but if I were unjustly accused, that's how I would feel as well", Flake said in an interview airing Sunday evening. Ford says he was present during her alleged assault; he has said he has no memory of the alleged attack.

"Republicans have to ask themselves if they're willing not only to sell the soul of the party, but sell their own souls to get this particular conservative on the Supreme Court", Horn said in an interview. Kavanaugh, testifying hours later, said he was "100 percent" certain that he was innocent of the accusation. "I do think the big question is, was that Brett Kavanaugh?" Joe Manchin said he supported Flake's call to push off a full Senate vote until the FBI investigates Ford's allegation.

"Nobody could deny that her testimony wasn't compelling, that it wasn't impactful", Sanders said.

Klobuchar declined to say whether she found Swetnick's claims credible but she said she should be interviewed by federal investigators. "I'm a victim of sexual assault", she said.

"I have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts", said Donnelly in a written statement. Just what the FBI will investigate remains a mystery. "You're telling me that my assault doesn't matter, that what happened to me doesn't matter and you're going to elect people who do these things into power".
