Federal Bureau of Investigation completes interview of Kavanaugh's high school friend

President Trump announced a revamped North American free trade deal and then took questions from reporters at the White House Monday FBI interviews Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge as part of investigation

Garrett's lawyer, William Sullivan, says Garrett has voluntarily cooperated with the FBI's reopened background check of Kavanaugh and has finished his interview.

" 'What neighborhood was it in?' 'I don't know.' 'Where's the house?' 'I don't know.' 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' 'I don't know".

Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she had offered her full cooperation with the FBI in its investigation but had received no reply.

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, accused Kavanaugh of delivering a "partisan screed" during the judiciary committee hearing last week.

Five days after an extraordinary Senate hearing watched by millions of people in which a university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, detailed her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Trump seemed to raise the issue of false accusations against men. They launched into occasional chants of "We want Chris".

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh in July to succeed retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the top US court.

The lawyers' concerns emerged amid reports that the FBI could wind up its investigation well before the deadline of this Friday. "Many decades ago the IRS reviewed and signed off on these transactions", Sanders said in the statement, which did not cite any specifics of the report.

If Kavanaugh's accusers fail to provide "any evidence to corroborate the [sexual assault] claims and Kavanaugh says these incidents did not happen", Americans believe Kavanaugh should sit on the Supreme Court, by a margin of 57% to 43%. People also slammed him for his insensitivity.

"How many years ago was it?" He has denied all the allegations against him.

Regardless of what he did as a teenager, senators need to look at what Kavanaugh is saying now, Schumer argued.

Trump, while discussing Kavanaugh's treatment, began rehashing Ford's testimony.

The votes of the three aforementioned Republicans and those of red-state Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, will largely determine whether Kavanaugh is confirmed.

President Trump talks to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Tuesday before boarding Marine One for a trip to Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

America First Policies, a group closely affiliated with Trump, extended a pro-Kavanaugh ad this week it had initially expected to take off the air, aides told USA TODAY.

The claims are significant because Democrats in the U.S. Senate will likely complain that the FBI was not given enough time to complete a proper investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Not so, argued Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, contending the Democrats are simply looking to "move the goalposts" to prevent Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he said. Anything we say can or do can be twisted by women we work with.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's allegations. Trump said, role-playing a conversation between a son and mother.

"The politics of personal destruction were willfully unleashed" by Democrats, McConnell said, adding, "This is not politics as usual".

"The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, said a Friday vote on Kavanaugh would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

He said that soon after the revelation of a letter by Ford asserting that Kavanaugh abused her at a high school gathering in Maryland, "The floodgates of mud and muck opened entirely on Brett Kavanaugh and his family".

"The mudslide was cheered on and capitalized on at every turn by the far left that has been so eager to stop this nomination", he said.
