Senators to Review FBI's Report on Kavanaugh Under Strict Security

  • Lawyer: FBI has completed Mark Judge interview

If they don't have the votes, the nomination fails.

He called Democrats who are against Kavanaugh "evil people" who want to "destroy people".

Ford's attorneys, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, said Wednesday they haven't heard back from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about scheduling an interview about Ford's claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago.

Republicans hold a 51-49 majority in the Senate, with Vice President Mike Pence a potential tie-breaking vote, meaning they can only lose one vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

President Trump was cheered on by a crowd of Republican faithful in MS yesterday as he mimicked Dr Ford's responses to questions at last week's Senate hearing and joked about her inability to remember details surrounding the night of her alleged attack. Another Yale classmate, Jennifer Klaus, said she often socialized with Kavanaugh at Yale and vigorously disputed his portrayal of himself.

Mr Trump was accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women. 'Where's the house?' I don't know.

"Upstairs, downstairs where was it?" I don't know. But I had one beer.

"A man's life is in tatters", he said.

"There's no time and no place for remarks like that", Flake said in an interview with NBC News early Wednesday. "Again, it is a blatant falsehood - I'm so tempted to use the L-word, but he's my friend - to say that Democrats caused the delay".

Sanders told reporters Wednesday at a rare White House briefing that "the president was stating the facts" at a MS rally Tuesday night.

Sen. Chris Coons of DE, the Democrat who paired with Republican Sen.

I don't even know him. "The President's comments yesterday mocking Dr Ford were wholly inappropriate and, in my view, unacceptable".

The majority of Palu's inhabitants are Muslim. "I assure all help from India to Indonesia to combat the disasters", Swaraj said. The other tragedy is that more than 48,000 have been forced to leave their houses and telecommunications are still not working.

Trump drew laughs from supporters at a rally Tuesday night with his rendition of how Ford answered questions at last week's hearing. She said he was simply "stating the facts" and complained that both Ford and Kavanaugh were "victims" of a Democratic plot to derail the nomination.

The fast-moving story around embattled Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh continues to unfold.

And speaking at an event hosted by The Atlantic magazine, Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said he "didn't particularly like" the president's remarks, adding, "I would tell him, knock it off".

Senators and aides have said that the file will contain forms of interviews conducted by the FBI - but not a conclusion from the bureau about who's telling the truth in the case.

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

"Sometimes people are accused of something they didn't do", Graham said.

Opposition among Americans to Kavanaugh has increased since last week's hearing, Reuters/Ipsos polling data showed on Wednesday.

In the letter, Democrats wrote that the tweet wasn't consistent with what senators learned in a briefing on a confidential background investigation into Kavanaugh's history.

Meanwhile, President Trump put out a tweet supporting the judge, saying: "'Wow, such enthusiasm and energy for Judge Brett Kavanaugh", Trump tweeted Wednesday evening.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said "the president was stating the facts" at a MS rally where he imitated Professor Christine Blasey Ford.

"BK's lies about binge drinking are false exculpatory statements created to undermine Ford's 100% certain I.D. of him as her attacker".
