Hawley wants investigation of Democrats over Kavanaugh; Sen. Feinstein responds

Brett Kavanaugh is not a 'stumbling bumbling drunk' and is no Bill Cosby Lindsey Graham says Sen. Lindsey Graham delivers remarks about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh earlier this week

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) are other red-state Democrats whose election bids might be impacted by the hearings and their votes on Kavanaugh. "That is a very, very hard standard".

Some Republicans and White House allies have suggested the allegations against Kavanaugh can be potent political fodder in the run-up to November 6, animating GOP voters who have so far lacked the same motivation to head to the polls as their Democratic counterparts. Challenger Josh Hawley (R) still holds a slight edge over Sen. Fortunately, Graham does not think that scenario will play out, and suggested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not discover anything to dissuade Sens.

Officials said Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 percent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff.

The three-decade-old accusation facing Brett Kavanaugh is not only false, they argue, but an example of the #MeToo movement gone too far in its call to believe the women and not the men. Senators have asked that the background investigation be completed by Friday. They also have criticized Kavanaugh for his angry testimony about the allegations - which include being present at a gang rape - when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Trump's mocking remarks come amid a protracted and heated confirmation process for Kavanaugh.

Ford's lawyer Michael Bromwich called Trump's attack "vicious, vile and soulless".

In a memo to Senate Republicans, Mitchell details nine main points she says raise questions about the credibility of Ford's account.

Mr Kavanaugh has denied Ms Ford's allegations. In fact, she spoke softly but emotionally and engaged thoroughly with her questioner. Ford identified Judge as a witness to the alleged assault.

His critics have expressed concern that he lied about his drinking habits. "There have been a lot of people over the previous year that have lied to Congress, and to me that would not be acceptable". "When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", Ludington said.

"You could be somebody that was flawless their entire life and someone could accuse you of something", Trump said.

Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader from NY, said the Senate should be briefed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at least 24 hours before an initial procedural vote on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination. For both the judge, and the nation, the stakes are high: If confirmed, Kavanaugh would replace retired Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, the swing vote on a deeply divided court. Mitchell's report cited this portion of the hearing as questionable, saying it was not clear that her attorneys ever responded to Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's offer to send investigators to meet her in California to conduct her interview.
