Pro-Life Leaders Slam Sen. Joe Donnelly on Kavanaugh ‘No’ Vote

A full Senate vote is expected next week A full Senate vote is expected next week

Ultimately, Flake, who is retiring this year, said he would not be ready to vote for Kavanaugh until the FBI conducted a background investigation into the sexual misconduct claims.

Democrats were not included on a call that Republican staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee held with the White House discussing the FBI investigation, according to an official familiar with the discussion. "Out of respect for the integrity of the process, we will have no further comment at this time". Chris Coons after Flake announced he is in favor of additional time in the Kavanaugh investigation on September 28, 2018 in Washington.

Kavanaugh's high school friend, Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said Friday that he will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that will "confidentially investigate" sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh.

Typically, background investigations do not go back decades, as will be needed in Kavanaugh's case because the allegations are about things said to have happened during his teenage years.

President Donald Trump and Republican leaders in the Senate had no choice but to request an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry - a move Democrats had demanded for days.

On Friday, the committee met, and while Judge Kavanaugh won approval along strictly partisan lines, one Republican member, Sen.

In a statement, Flake called Ford's Thursday testimony "compelling" but described Kavanaugh's "persuasive" response to her claims that he physically assaulted as a teenager in 1982.

"I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me".

Flake, the only uncommitted Republican on the committee, announced in a statement Friday morning that he planned to vote for Kavanaugh despite his concerns about last-minute public accusations from Dr. Christine Ford.

Rouhani says Iran to remain in JCPOA with conditions
Trump appeared briefly flustered, then smiled and said it was not the reaction he expected "but that's all right". On the Syria conflict, he said the USA would respond if chemical weapons are used by the Assad regime in Syria.

Dershowitz, an advocate of President Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh, offered his views in an op-ed published Friday on Fox News hours before the Senate Judiciary Committee was to vote on the confirmation and possibly send the nomination to the full Senate.

"You may defeat me in the final vote", he said.

Ford can not say when the alleged incident occurred or where.

David Gomez, a former FBI counterterrorism supervisor in Seattle, said typically FBI headquarters will divide up leads that get assigned to different field offices across the USA for further investigation and are assigned a quick deadline. The investigation, however, will result in a one-week delay of the full Senate vote. Sen.

Grassley wrote, "Am I to take from your letter that you are now undecided and willing to seriously engage with the Senate's advice-and-consent constitutional duties related to the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States?"

A third woman, Julie Swetnick, accused Kavanaugh and Judge of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women in the early 1980s, among other accusations.

"Don't look away from me!" And shortly after a dramatic meeting in Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office with another key undecided vote, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, the Republican leaders were forced to take a pause. But the attorney emphasized that Keyser has no recollection of the party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her.

Trump's decision on a limited FBI investigation against Kavanaugh came after the Republicans agreed to it.

Coons of DE said that after Flake announced his support for Kavanaugh earlier Friday, they had a private conversation and Coons said he told Flake, "I respect you as my friend, but I'm having difficulty with your vote".
