Michael R. Bromwich, a lawyer for Blasey Ford, called Trump's comments a "vicious, vile and soulless attack" on her. 'I don't know.' Where's the house?

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers are scolding the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to contact Ford about her claim the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted when they were teenagers in the 1980s. While Flake said Kavanaugh deserves some leeway given what he and his family been through, he said, "We can't have this on the court".

Negotiations among lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee last week spurred the new investigation.

President Donald Trump, who earlier described Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and other lawmakers, the Senate last Friday agreed the FBI could investigate for up to a week, meaning its deadline is this Friday.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court was put on hold after a woman publicly accused him of sexually assaulting her decades ago at a gathering with friends and alcohol.

Democrats have submitted a list of two dozen people they want to be interviewed and say the scope should expand beyond the sexual assault allegations to look into whether the judge has been truthful about his fondness for beer and other parts of his past.

He said of Kavanaugh: 'a man's life is in tatters.

President Trump said that if Kavanaugh did lie to Congress, then "that would not be acceptable", but the White House has said the administration does not feel that Kavanaugh lied under oath.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from September 23, just a week after the allegations were known, showed interest in the election among white men at 64 percent, higher than in 2010 when Republicans retook the House and 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate.
