Trump orders new FBI probe of Kavanaugh, Senate vote delayed

Trump orders new FBI probe of Kavanaugh, Senate vote delayed

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegation.

Kavanaugh will then be questioned by the 11 Democrat Senators on the committee in the same format as Ford.

The unidentified man claims that he and a friend confronted two men on the boat once it had docked, and recently recognised Kavanaugh as one of the men he assaulted.

"I am with judge Kavanaugh and I look forward to a vote", Trump told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters where he is attending the organization's annual General Assembly meetings.

Judge Kavauaugh replied: "This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone".

While Ford is not the only woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, she is the only one scheduled to testify publicly.


Dr Ford, a university professor in California, has accused Mr Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when they were both high school students in Maryland.

The release also outlines a number of others the committee has interviewed, including friends of Kavanaugh and those who know the women who have lodged accusations against him.

Trump says he's open to changing his mind on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - if the evidence at Thursday's Senate committee hearing is compelling.

Following an eventful day at the United Nations, President Donald Trump held a news conference in NY before departing back to Washington D.C.

Feinstein responded to Grassley's criticism when she began her opening remarks, saying, "Yes, I did receive a letter from Dr. Ford. the next day, I called Dr. Ford, we spoke on the phone, she reiterated that she wanted this held confidential".

President Donald Trump has once again lambasted the Democrats for their treatment of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, telling his followers to "pray" for the judge, who he said was being treated unfairly.


He went on to say, "Only at an 11th hour, on the eve of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation vote, did the ranking member refer the allegations to the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

"People want fame. They want money", Trump said speaking at a news conference in NY on Wednesday.

Kavanaugh said in a statement, "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen".

On Wednesday, Julie Swetnick became the third woman to come forward with accusations involving Kavanaugh.

Depending on how the hearing goes, the Senate committee could vote on Kavanaugh's nomination as early as Friday, but it could be delayed.
