FBI Report on Kavanaugh Draws Partisan Reactions

FBI Report on Kavanaugh Draws Partisan Reactions

Those GOP senators, along with Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, have yet to declare how they will vote on Kavanaugh. "I thought (Kavanaugh) had the qualifications for the Supreme Court should he be selected", Stevens said in Boca Raton, according to The Palm Beach post.

The President took to Twitter Thursday to blast the "totally uncorroborated allegations!"

To guard the sensitive information, the FBI's report is expected to be held in a secure room normally reserved only for classified matters.

Corker said nine of the pages were about Mark Judge, the Kavanaugh friend who Ford said also jumped on her while Kavanaugh assaulted her. Judge has said he doesn't recall the incident.

Another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has accused Mr Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a drinking game when they were students at Yale University in the 1980s. Kavanaugh's former classmates say they saw him so drunk so often they hold open the possibility that he might have blacked out during his high school and college days.

"We had many fears that this was a very limited process", added Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer. He forcefully denied the allegations.

The trio of GOP moderates, leery of three women's claims of alcohol-fueled sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, had refused to let his nomination proceed last week until Trump ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

In her congressional hearing last week, Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when he was drunk at a small social gathering during summer vacation when they were in high school. Kavanaugh has denied the claims. Some key Republican senators have said they were waiting to review the report before making a decision on how they would vote. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, deflected, saying, "This is not a comprehensive FBI investigation on which we can draw conclusions". It was not clear why the 10th was not interviewed. "No backup from any witnesses, including those specifically named as eyewitnesses by the people who brought the allegations in the first place", McConnell said. During her testimony in front of the committee, she said Kavanaugh covered her mouth to hide her screams as he grinded on her and attempted to remove her one-piece bathing suit.

The absence of interviews of Kavanaugh and Ford has particularly raised eyebrows.

Senators have come out and said the FBI's report provides no new evidence against Kavanaugh and that none of the allegations could be corroborated by eye-witnesses.

Trump on Tuesday inflamed tensions over Kavanaugh's nomination by mocking Blasey Ford at a Republican rally in Mississippi.

The senate majority leader, McConnell, rejected that, along with all the allegations against Kavanaugh in a speech on Thursday morning.

Collins on Wednesday called Trump's scoffing at Ford "just plain wrong". Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, called it "wholly inappropriate and in my view unacceptable", and Sen. I wish he hadn't have done it. "I wish he hadn't had done it", Flake told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on "Today", adding, "It's kind of appalling".

Flake, whose reservations about Kavanaugh led to Trump requesting a supplemental background check on his nominee last week, also condemned the President's comments.

Earlier, White House spokesman Raj Shah rebuffed Democrats' complaints, saying, "What critics want is a never-ending fishing expedition into high school drinking". Flake, a retiring senator and frequent thorn in the side of President Donald Trump, achieved a delay long enough for the FBI to reopen its background investigation of the nominee. "That's the only thing I remember", the president said to cheers and applause from the crowd, CBS News reported.
