Supreme Court kicks off term without 9th justice, as Kavanaugh vote nears

Supreme Court kicks off term without 9th justice, as Kavanaugh vote nears

President Trump calls for a "comprehensive" FBI investigation of sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh; insight from Berit Berger, former assistant US attorney for the Southern District of NY.

President Trump has ordered the FBI to conduct an investigation into his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, a process that will be "extensive", said retired FBI agent Warren Flagg.

President Trump appeared at a campaign rally in West Virginia on Saturday and, in an illustration of how the Brett Kavanaugh fight has spilled into the midterm elections, said that installing him on the Supreme Court would repudiate "outrageous tactics" on the part of Democratic lawmakers.

The FBI will be guided by what Senate Republicans want examined, added Trump, who ordered the probe of allegations against Kavanaugh after Senate Republican leaders were pressed by Senator Jeff Flake and other moderates in Trump's own party.

Their meeting would lead to the advancing of Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate - but the circuit court judge now faces an Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into the sexual assault allegations against him.

Democrats expressed concern on Sunday about reported efforts to stymie the probe, which comes after the Judiciary Committee approved Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday before it goes to the full Senate for a final vote.

Trump says he's still hopeful that Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate and that he doesn't want to discuss alternative nominees. "It's so unfair to his kids and his wife".

From that, we know that in her 2013 therapy session she said she was in her "late teens" when it happened.

During a dramatic Senate hearing last week that featured testimony from Ford, Kavanaugh acknowledged that he sometimes drank too much in high school but said he did not have a drinking problem.

"They should interview, but they should be guided by what the senators are looking for", he said.

Given the choice, 48 percent believe Ford more than Kavanaugh, and 41 percent believe Kavanaugh more than Ford.

Ford accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her at a party in the 1980s when both were teenagers, but she has been unable to recall some details about the night in question, including the precise date and how she got home.

Murkowski is not on the committee, but also has not announced how she will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. I have no desire to speak further publicly, and nothing more to say to the press at this time.

Brett Kavanaugh's angry denunciation of Senate Democrats at his confirmation hearing could reinforce views of the Supreme Court as a political institution at a time of stark partisan division and when the court already is sharply split between liberals and conservatives. But he also wants the FBI to investigate the charges from Christine Blasey Ford and as many as two other accusers. He also denied reports that the White House is limiting the scope of the probe, saying, "my White House is doing whatever the senators want". I believed he was going to rape me.

The Senate will soon decide whether to confirm nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Trump said he felt bad for Kavanaugh. She said she was there to support survivors of sexual assault and to denounce Kavanaugh.

Ford said another boy, Mark Judge, was in the room with Kavanaugh when she was attacked; Judge has said he doesn't remember the incident. Judge Kavanaugh provided a staunch defense of the right to keep and bear arms in a case that concerned the constitutionality of the gun control regime D.C. enacted in the wake of the landmark District of Columbia v. Heller decision.
