Supreme Court Justice Kagan won’t discuss Kavanaugh

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C

Kavanaugh told Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) he was sorry after they had a testy exchange about allegations that he drank to excess and would black out.

Citing anonymous sources, NBC News reported that the White House has placed limits on the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, restricting the witness list to exclude Swetnick, Yale classmates who could shed light on Kavanaugh's drinking habits, and sources that could confirm details of some of Ford's allegations.

President Donald Trump says he wants a "comprehensive" FBI investigation of the sexual assault accusations against his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh denied her allegation, as well as accusations made by two other women, and accused Democrats of making him the victim of a political "hit".

Last Friday, Mr Trump ordered a one-week delay in a vote on Mr Kavanaugh so that the FBI could investigate the sexual misconduct claims.

The same Quinnipiac poll found that while a narrow plurality believe Kavanaugh "is the target of a politically motivated smear campaign", a plurality also believed Ford's claims over his.

Bruce says Smyth told them he had "no knowledge" of the small gathering that Ford described. James Roche said Kavanaugh was a "notably heavy drinker, even by the standards of the time, and that he became aggressive and belligerent when he was very drunk".

With the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh in doubt, Justice Elena Kagan discussed how the court worked "super hard" in the past to overcome the unusual scenario of a 4-4 split it is due to encounter next week.

Senate Judiciary Committee member Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., requested an investigation last Friday - after he and other Republicans on the panel voted along strict party lines in favor of Kavanaugh's confirmation - as a condition for his own subsequent vote to put Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.

Coons said his phone was "blowing up" with people relating to him their accounts of being sexually attacked as Ford testified.

"That's bad enough, but then to limit the FBI as to the scope and who they're going to question, that - that really - I wanted to use the word farce, but that's not the kind of investigation that all of us are expecting the FBI to conduct", she said. But he also wants the FBI to investigate the charges from Christine Blasey Ford and as many as two other accusers.

Flake also said Kavanaugh sounded like somebody who had been "unjustly accused" but he felt the nominee went too far. "And he actually apologized at one point", Flake said.

Mitchell is a Phoenix-based sex crimes prosecutor Republicans hired to question Christine Blasey Ford about her claims against Kavanaugh during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

The FBI has begun investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by an intoxicated Kavanaugh in high school and college, allegations the appeals court judge flatly denies.
