Jeff Flake critiques Kavanaugh's 'sharp and partisan' rhetoric at Senate hearing

They forced the White House to open a supplemental background investigation of sexual misconduct allegations against the judge. He has denied all accusations.

The highly-anticipated full Senate vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will happen by October 6, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K.Y.) said.

Harvard Law School says U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.

Kavanaugh's temperament to serve on the court has also come under question. While saying that youthful drinking should not condemn a person for life, Ludington said he was concerned about Kavanaugh's statements under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee. "It's Tuesday, and we have to put all the facts together".

Chris Coons on Friday when they left a meeting on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination together, just before the Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in Kavanaugh's favour.

On Monday, Collins said she is "confident that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews" when asked if the senator is satisfied with the scope of the inquiry.

Mitchell, who worked as a sex-crimes prosecutor for almost 25 years in Arizona, pointed out what she identified as timing inconsistencies.

Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor from California, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Mr Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were both high school students in Maryland.

Kavanaugh, however, denied all the allegations during his testimony on Saturday, saying that his reputation and that of his family has been "totally and permanently destroyed". He has previously sent two letters to the Senate committee indicating he does not recall events described by Ford. Comey wrote, "If I can make up all that Russian collusion crap, surely the agents now in place can come up with some nonsense". Flake told her. "I wasn't referring to him".

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.

GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Jeff Flake are the other key senators.

Trump also suggested at one point that some of Kavanaugh's questioners have secrets of their own.

The Senate confirmation hearing is not a trial, noted Mitchell, but she said she provided her assessment based on a legal context.
"The interaction with the members was sharp and partisan, and that concerns me", Flake said. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., a frequent Trump antagonist, for making false statements about serving in combat in the Vietnam War. "No one is entitled to a job on the Supreme Court - everyone is entitled to the truth". He would succeed Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court's swing vote, who retired in July.

Some Republican senators had made clear to the White House through phone calls that a severely limited investigation into Kavanaugh was not what they had in mind when they launched the probe on Friday.

"Four witnesses will be questioned in coming days about aspects of the assault accusations against Judge Kavanaugh, according to two people familiar with the matter".

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's account that he exposed himself to her and thrust his genitalia in her face during a party at a Yale dormitory when they were both students there, as reported September 23 by The New Yorker. A third claim - from Julia Swetnick, who is represented by attorney Michael Avenatti - accuses Kavanaugh of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women at parties in the early 1980s. In order for Republicans to confirm Kavanaugh without any Democratic support, they can only afford to lose one of these senators.

A Harvard Law School spokeswoman confirmed Kavanaugh's decision to The Associated Press on Tuesday.
