FBI contacts Kavanaugh Yale classmate in its investigation

Anti-Trump Latino Dem makes stunning reversal after Democrats’ performance at Kavanaugh hearing

The scope of the investigation that FBI agents will undertake now is unclear.

President Trump subsequently ordered the bureau to conduct the "supplemental" probe at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Agents should get support from the Judiciary Committee for rapid immunity and subpoena decisions, he said.

Flake (R-Ariz.) had voted to send Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate.

Recognizing that Flake and a handful of other senators' votes appeared contingent upon the investigation, Republican leaders and the White House relented. "As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week", Trump said in a statement. Committee spokesmen did not return a request for comment to elaborate on what specifically those allegations are.

A supplemental background check into Ford's allegations could also widen beyond witness interviews to include an investigation into a gap that Ford has admitted to in her story: the date of the party. The FBI's interviews, which will take a few days to conduct, won't turn into a sprawling inquest of everyone Kavanaugh went to a party with in high school, said a person familiar with the investigation.

The Reds were grateful to goalkeeper Alisson Becker for keeping them in the match before Sturridge's unforgettable intervention. Liverpool now have also become Hazard's second favourite team to score against, with seven goals in sixteen meetings.

"It would be helpful with anyone's resources if - to figure out when he worked there, if people are wanting more details from me about when the attack occurred", Ford said. But the attorney emphasized that Keyser has no recollection of the party where Ford alleges Kavanaugh assaulted her. "However, the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate it because she has no recollection of the incident in question".

"It could help heal the Senate, which is bitterly divided over Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Sen. "I thought that Dr. Ford was credible, but I thought that Judge Kavanaugh came on very strong and was also very credible".

"I said "hello" to him, " she said.

Ford continued, "He was just nervous and not really wanting to speak with me, and he looked a little bit ill". The committee on Thursday heard emotional and sometimes combative testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford. Visibly angry and fighting back tears, Kavanaugh said the claims have "destroyed" his family and his "good name", and he blamed Democrats for turning his confirmation process into a "circus".

The image of Mr Flake, cornered in a congressional lift, being berated by a number of women who said they themselves had been the victims of a sexual assault, was searing and unforgettable. Evidence of any substance abuse problems could color a claimant's accusation, but the FBI notably does not make any conclusions about the credibility or significance of an allegation in a background investigation report.
