Cornyn Suggests Public Might See ‘Summary’ Of FBI Followup On Kavanaugh

The US president was speaking in response to the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, his nominee for the Supreme Court.


The police report indicates that Kavanaugh and four other people were questioned by cops and the SCOTUS nominee is on record as “not wanting to say if he threw the ice or not”.

Two other undeclared senators, Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Susan Collins, R-Maine, said they are satisfied with the scope and pace of the FBI investigation.

President Trump then ordered a “supplemental investigation”, to be completed in a week.

Mr Trump’s remarks came as he reiterated his support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is now facing sexual misconduct allegations by several women.

The New York Democrat later said “there is a growing consensus in the Senate that when the FBI investigation is complete, the findings should be released publicly with any personal information redacted”.

Judge Kavanaugh and Prof Ford gave public testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

His comments come as Democrats are pressing for a more expansive FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. Ford has alleged that Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her.

Leaning: Flake said Friday morning that he would vote yes, only to say hours later that he would withhold his support until the Federal Bureau of Investigation gets a week to investigate.

Ramirez alleged in an interview with The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dorm party when they were both freshmen at Yale University.

“I think that Judge Kavanaugh is doing pretty well, it seems to me, over the last 24 hours”.

United States reports also say former classmates of the judge’s who have stressed his heavy college drinking are not on the witness list. “The FBI needs to be allowed to pursue all reasonable investigatory steps from the credible allegations in front of the committee”, he said.

New Haven Police Officer David Hartman speaks to reporters, October 2, 2018, in New Haven, Conn., about a 1985 police report involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Over the weekend, reports began to surface that FBI investigators were looking into the allegations from Ford and Ramirez, but not Swetnick.

Republicans have accused Democrats of trying to drag out the confirmation process, with McConnell repeatedly charging they’re trying to “move the goalposts”.

President Trump said Monday that some US senators are “not angels” and went too far in questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s alcohol use in high school.

Trump has rejected in recent days the notion he’s “limiting” the investigation.

In defending Kavanaugh’s downplaying of his drinking history, Trump joked that if he himself drank, he’d “be the world’s worst”, but Kimmel wasn’t convinced. Judge, Smyth and Keyser say they don’t recall the incident described by Ford.

“I want it to be comprehensive”, Trump said, while also adding he wants it to be done “quickly”.

Trump made fun of Ford’s inability to provide certain details about the night she said Kavanaugh attacked her 36 years ago at a party in high school. “His credibility is in real doubt – doubt enough for a lot of Americans to say this man should not be on the Supreme Court”. Another two messages show communication between Mr Kavanaugh’s team and former classmates before The New Yorker story broke, suggesting Mr Kavanaugh knew about Ms Ramirez’s allegations in advance.

“They should interview anyone they want within reason. But now you’re guilty until proven innocent”, Trump said. The Post said the probe would now encompass the allegations of a third Kavanaugh accuser but wouldn’t take an unfettered look at Kavanaugh’s drinking or as a young man or examine the veracity of his statements about his drinking at the Senate Judicary Committee hearing last week.

Donald Trump defended his pick but conceded that the appeals court judge has had a “bit of difficulty” with alcohol. Dianne Feinstein of California said Tuesday was too soon to “put all the facts together”.

Democratic Senator Chris Coons told reporters he was in discussions with the White House on the probe.


“It’s part of the con he is running”, he said.
