Federal Bureau of Investigation talks with school friend of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

State advocates condemn advancement of Kavanaugh confirmation

Mark Judge, who has denied any wrongdoing, completed his interview with FBI agents as part of the reopened background investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, said his lawyer, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder.

GOP leadership is reportedly hopeful that the FBI will finish its investigation by Wednesday - it has been given a Friday deadline - to set up the process for the Senate to begin its floor votes on Kavanaugh's confirmation this week.

Republicans have insisted that this investigation be limited to a single week, noting that the FBI had already conducted a background investigation into Kavanaugh and referred their findings to the White House.

Mr Trump has denied imposing any restrictions, saying he wanted the Federal Bureau of Investigation "to interview whoever they deem appropriate" in its check on his pick for the Supreme Court.

Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor, has said Judge was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers in the early 1980s.

"Even if you want to discount what happened when he was 15 in high school and 18 in college, you can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said. She's the second woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

The most senior Democrat on the Senate's Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein, has sent a letter urging the White House to release the written directive sent by President Trump to the FBI launching the investigation.

Timing also is a considerable factor when it comes to the mid-term elections and Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court.

Police say nine women who refused to leave a West Virginia senator's office during a protest over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have been charged with trespassing.

Donnelly, who had been a "maybe" on confirming the nominee facing allegations of sexual assault, on Friday stated that he won't support Judge Kavanaugh.




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.

"It does us no good to have an investigation that just gives us more cover".

Walsh has said his client doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party with him.

Chad Ludington, a former Yale classmate of Brett Kavanaugh, said the judge had played down "the degree and frequency" of his drinking and that Kavanaugh had often become "belligerent and aggressive" while intoxicated.

"My White House will do whatever the senators want", Trump said. "The trauma for a man who has never had any accusations", Trump said.

Judge, a conservative writer, was a friend and classmate of Kavanaugh's at Georgetown Preparatory School, a private, all-male Catholic school in North Bethesda, Maryland. "I have a very open mind".

"The investigation is a farce and is being run by Donald Trump", Avenatti said.

As the fresh review unfolded, the prosecutor who was brought in by Republicans to handle questioning at last week's hearing outlined in a new memo why she did not believe criminal charges would be brought against Kavanaugh if it were a criminal case rather than a Supreme Court confirmation process.

Ford has claimed that Judge was a witness to Kavanaugh's alleged attack on her at a party while the three were still in high school. He's expressed concern at how a failed nomination will affect him politically, and accused some aides of failing to confront the crisis adequately. He initially declined several questions on Kavanaugh, angrily denouncing them as off-topic, before returning to the matter.

'The F.B.I. should interview anybody that they want within reason, but you have to say within reason, ' Trump said Monday in the White House Rose Garden.
