In Kavanaugh Fight, Democrats Move Goal Posts Far, Far Away

  • Trump reminds anti-Kavanaugh senators they are not angels

And two, why are Democrats, now that they have finally won the FBI investigation they wanted into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh, suddenly making a bigger deal of his drinking? "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them".

Kavanaugh has denied Swetnick and Ford's claims.

McConnell's combative remarks about Democrats came as Trump and lawmakers await the FBI's reopened background check on the accusations against the 53-year-old jurist.

That means if all the Democrats vote against Kavanaugh, Trump could not afford to have more than one Republican oppose his nominee, with Vice President Mike Pence casting a tie-breaking vote.

In this file photo taken on September 4, 2018 Judge Brett Kavanaugh looks on during his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. I will however, take my information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The investigation is expected to conclude as soon as late Tuesday or early Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported. Ford described being held down on a bed while Kavanaugh ― who hopes to have a spot on the Supreme Court ― covered her mouth with his hand and attempted to forcibly remove her clothing. Mr Judge told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a written statement that he did not recall any such incident - but he was not asked to testify in person. Julie Swetnick made that assertion in a sworn statement and is represented by Michael Avenatti, who also represents adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her claim that Trump paid her for silence about an alleged 2006 affair.

Mr Trump said he believed the judge would be confirmed.

Responding to those concerns, Trump said at a press conference he wants the FBI to do a "comprehensive" investigation and "it wouldn't bother me at all" if agents pursued accusations made by the three women. "This is a very hard time".

China hits movie star Fan Bingbing with huge fines for tax evasion
Ms Fan dropped off the radar in June amid reports that she was involved in an investigation into tax evasion in the film industry. According to Chinese media, the actress evaded £800,000 in taxes by signing up to a secret contract worth £2.2m for Air Strike .

"It's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of".

Kavanaugh appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday afternoon to deny allegations by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that he had once tried to sexually assault her at a small get together in the summer of 1982.

"Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a terrible thing to me". "Well, you think it was - Nope!" Nope! It was one beer.

Okay, fine, this is now part of our discourse but so help me, if "Never Gonna Give You Up" is dragged into this fight next. I don't remember. Where was the place? "If we took 10 years, they'd want more time", he groused. I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes. What neighbourhood was it in? Ford said Keyser, a former professional golfer and coach, was downstairs when the alleged attack happened and was not aware of what was happening in the upstairs bedroom.

But Trump continued his staunch defense of his Supreme Court pick Monday, calling for a "comprehensive" but "quick" FBI investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct as the agency works to meet a looming deadline. But I had one beer. Trump observed first-hand how alcohol destroys lives.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said after speaking with White House counsel Don McGahn over the weekend he remained "very concerned" the FBI's probe would be too narrow.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said today that the forthcoming FBI report on their supplemental investigation in sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will only be available for senators to read, while Democrats are arguing for wider distribution.
