A look at what the FBI's Kavanaugh investigation will entail

A look at what the FBI's Kavanaugh investigation will entail

"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file", Trump said in a statement.

Though Flake and the majority of the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to move Kavanaugh's nomination to a full Senate vote, he struck a deal with Democrats to delay the vote for a week while an FBI investigation goes ahead. When Flake endorsed Kavanaugh's confirmation this morning, it looked like a game-over moment: the stage was set for a final confirmation vote as early as tomorrow, and the prospect of a re-opened FBI investigation was effectively dead.

It was also not clear whether the FBI would investigate a series of allegations made by a third woman, Julie Swetnick, who has said that she witnessed a severely drunken Kavanaugh mistreat women at parties in high school and that he was present at parties where high school boys gang-raped teenage girls.

Judge Stephen Breyer, also nominated by Clinton, has been a Supreme Court judge for more than 24 years now.

An FBI spokeswoman did not immediately respond to questions about the investigation, including how many agents would be assigned and whether it could be completed in a week. They have hired many of his former clerks for their own chambers. "I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate". Kavanaugh has called her accusations a "joke" and Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.

It also represented the political reality that if Republicans stayed on course to install Kavanaugh on the U.S. Supreme Court by next week without the Federal Bureau of Investigation vetting, his tenure would forever be stained by the allegations - and by Republicans' failure to ask the nation's top investigatory agency to get involved.

Bush has been picking up the phone to call Senators, lobbying them to support Mr Kavanaugh, who worked in the White House for Mr Bush and through him met his wife Ashley, who was Mr Bush's personal secretary.

By the end of the day, Flake had, adding a condition to his promise to vote for Kavanaugh.

The Arizona politician has since said that his support for Kavanaugh would be contingent on the FBI investigating Christine Blasey Ford's accusation of sexual assault.

Democrats expressed outrage and some walked out of the committee meeting earlier Friday after Republicans unanimously backed taking a vote. While Keyser doesn't recall the party where the attack allegedly occurred, she did "not refute Dr. Ford's account, and". He began his response by noting that on July 10, less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump announced Kavanaugh's nomination, Sanders publicly remarked, "w$3 e must mobilize the American people to defeat" Kavanaugh.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., pressed Saturday for an even broader investigation, writing in a letter to the chairman of the Judiciary Committee that the FBI should examine whether Kavanaugh lied to senators during his testimony. 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".

"We need to keep the pressure on". Now, the decision is left to the full Senate to confirm or reject Kavanaugh's lifetime appointment to the high court.

"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.
