Many women line up in support of Kavanaugh

The Senate Judiciary Committee called on the White House to order the FBI to reopen Kavanaugh's background investigation after voting to advance Kavanaugh's nomination. My hope is that some Democrats will say "Hey, we may not change our vote, but this process was worthy of the institution, and we feel satisfied".

The American Bar Association, which earlier endorsed Kavanaugh, and the dean of Yale Law School, which Kavanaugh attended, also called for an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe on Friday, the first indication of the legal profession turning on the nominee.

A day after hearings Christine Blasey Ford testified about her allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, Flake, who was on the Senate Judicial Committee, said in a statement that he had chose to vote to confirm Kavanaugh because there was " as much doubt as certainty".

Republicans hold a one-vote majority on the powerful committee, where Flake announced early Friday morning that he will vote with the majority to pass Kavanaugh's nomination to the Senate with a recommendation for confirmation.

After three women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, lawmakers disagreed along party lines about how to proceed.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT.) has called on Judiciary Committee head Sen. All because Flake stood up when every other Republican was content to sit down and do nothing - except what he or she was told to do.

Ms. Keyser was among Ms. Ford's best friends at Holton-Arms, the all-girl private school in Bethesda not far from Mr. Kavanaugh's boy-only Georgetown Preparatory.

Leland Keyser stood to be the flawless witness for Christine Blasey Ford by confirming critical events that would bolster her charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "All I saw was two people in a great deal of pain".

Following Ford's testimony, Kavanaugh vigorously denied the allegations before the committee and accused Democrats of launching a last-minute attempt to derail his nomination.

Flake, who will be leaving the Senate at the end of the year, said while he meant to vote for Kavanaugh in committee, he wanted an FBI investigation of Dr. Ford's allegation before the entire Senate took up the matter.

"I said "hello" to him", she said.

The senator also bemoaned the fact that Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh had become "unwitting combatants in an undeclared war".

Republicans see Kavanaugh as pivotal to their gaining control of the nine-member Supreme Court bench.

Christine Blasey Ford is sworn in before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sept. 27, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Jeff Flake told the Senate Judiciary Committee as he proposed the delay.

Trump said in a statement that the investigation must be limited in nature and "completed in less than one week".

"That's what happened to me, and that's what you are telling all women in America, that they don't matter", she said through tears. They have been all over already. While we may never know for sure, it's easier to doubt the allegations against Kavanaugh when there is an established history people creating accusations out of thin air. "He was just nervous and not really wanting to speak with me, and he looked a little bit ill".

Coons of DE said that after Flake announced his support for Kavanaugh earlier Friday, they had a private conversation and Coons said he told Flake, "I respect you as my friend, but I'm having difficulty with your vote".

Despite skepticism over these two men, Kavanaugh himself and many on the right have granted that someone else may have tried to rape Ford, and she has misidentified or misremembered her attacker. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.
