Federal Bureau of Investigation report 'shows no Kavanaugh misconduct'

Donald Trump

The FBI's report will be available at a sensitive compartmented information facility, or SCIF, in the Capitol Visitor Center, a secure room designed for senators to review sensitive or classified material, two Senate officials said.

Kavanaugh has strongly denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

A woman from Virginia Beach shows her support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on the East Front of the Capitol, as senators review the FBI's supplemental background check on him on October 4, 2018.

"Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of the land", the letter states.

Given that Republicans have a razor-thin 51-49 margin of control in the Senate, the party can potentially only afford one defection if it wants the confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Mr Kavanaugh's column appeared aimed at winning over the three Republican senators who remain undecided. Democrats complained that the White House and Republicans limited the scope of the FBI and prevented the bureau from conducting a full investigation. The Senate Judiciary Committee expected to receive the report from the FBI Wednesday evening.

"I swear today, under oath, before the Senate and the nation, before my family and God, I am innocent of this charge", Kavanaugh told the Judiciary Committee.

The Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh, was accused by Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her in the early 1980's at a gathering.

A reported nine people were interviewed in the FBI's five-day investigation. "Nobody told them where to go, who to interview or how to interview them", Mr.

Three Republicans who could be key to whether Mr Kavanaugh is confirmed - Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski - have criticised Mr Trump for mocking Dr Ford at a political rally in MS on on Tuesday.




But agents didn't talk to Judge Kavanaugh, nor did they interview Ms. Blasey Ford.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh writes an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal addressing his emotional Senate testimony; WSJ panel weighs in on 'The Story'.

McConnell filed a petition for a cloture vote, which if successful would limit debate on the nomination and start the clock ticking on a final 30-hour waiting period before a Senate confirmation vote.

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, urged an end to what he called "partisan histrionics" and called for a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

With a razor-thin majority in the upper chamber, Senate Republicans can afford to lose only one GOP vote if all Democrats vote against the nomination. Sen.

Republicans expressed growing confidence that Kavanaugh would be confirmed by the Senate after a political battle that has riveted Americans weeks before November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from the Republicans. "That is because I forcefully and passionately denied the allegation against me", Kavanaugh wrote.

Ford testified last week at a dramatic Judiciary Committee hearing that when she was 15, a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth after she screamed.

It followed the FBI's early-morning release of its investigation, which President Donald Trump reluctantly ordered under pressure from a handful of senators.

Prof Ford's lawyer said eight people were not interviewed who could corroborate her claims, while Ms Ramirez's lawyer said more than 20 witnesses were not contacted.
