McConnell Vows 'We'll be Voting This Week' on Kavanaugh

If Kavanaugh confirmed, 'House will have to' investigate if Senate doesn't: Democratic rep Brett Kavanaugh 'belligerent and aggressive' after 'heavy' drinking, ex-classmate says

After declaring he would cast his vote to move Kavanaugh forward, Flake was confronted by two protesters in an elevator.

GOFFSTOWN - The national political spotlight on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court shifted to New Hampshire Monday night as Republican U.S. Sen.

Flake provided the decisive vote Friday to approve Kavanaugh's nomination in the Judiciary Committee and send the matter to the full Senate, but only after asking the panel to request an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe lasting up to seven days.

As the FBI investigates, a former Yale University classmate accused Kavanaugh of not being truthful about the extent of his drinking during his younger years.

He added: "Sometimes I had too many beers, sometimes others did". Kavanaugh denies that as well. The Brett he knew, Ludington said, was a "frequent" and "heavy" drinker who often became "belligerent and aggressive" when inebriated.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democrats' leader from NY, accused Kavanaugh of delivering a "partisan screed" during the Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

His desire to talk about compromise and bridging divides certainly had more resonance after Flake acted Friday to slow down (even for a week) the confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. An hour of frantic behind-the-scenes negotiations ensued, ending when Flake emerged and dropped the bombshell that he wanted an FBI investigation before he would vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on the Senate floor.

Pep Guardiola says Leroy Sane needs to stay focused
Guardiola's men are in need of three points in Germany this week after losing their European opener at home to Lyon. Guardiola said: "I believe too much in that team, in those guys".

"Seven days is an eternity", a Kavanaugh ally told Politico.

"I, for one, am waiting for the additional information that will come from the supplemental FBI investigation to inform me", Flake said. There's no currency for that anymore.

The 55-year-old senator announced last year that he would retire at the end of his term, citing the direction of the Republican Party under Trump.

Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency. But he also acknowledged that it may further complicate matters.

"This institution has seen before episodes somewhat like what we're now seeing from some of our colleagues across the aisle", McConnell said.

Pushing back on the Democratic attacks, Republicans said Kavanaugh had every right to be upset during the hearing. A US official also told The Post that a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, is not expected to be interviewed.

Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanuagh, claimed in a New Yorker article published Sunday, that he exposed himself to her at a college party although, The New Yorker acknowledges, she was initially "reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty".
