Trump authorises expansion of Kavanaugh probe

Woman who confronted Flake Abuse led to my own 'shame'

Additionally, a former Yale classmate of Kavanaugh's yesterday released a statement saying he was "deeply troubled" by the nominee's efforts to downplay his drinking in his youth.

But that assertion was called into question by Charles "Chad" Ludington, who said he had been a friend of Mr Kavanaugh's at Yale.

"Dr. Ford, Julie Swetnick, and the other accusers of Brett Kavanaugh have sacrificed their privacy, safety and normal lives in order to speak their truth", Patty Seger, executive director of End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, said Friday. There's no medical way I can say that he was blacked out.

Flagg said the polygraph that Ford said she took will not be admissible.

"However. if he lied about his past actions on national television, and more especially while speaking under oath in front of the United States Senate, I believe those lies should have consequences", he said in the statement.

Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME wanted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to interview four witnesses: Mark Judge, Leland Keyser, Patrick J. Smyth and Deborah Ramirez, the first three possible witnesses to an allegation of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford while she and Kavanaugh were in high school.

With the investigation underway, Senate Republican leaders appear intent on moving forward with the nomination as swiftly as possible.

They have suggested at least two dozen people they say should be interviewed before the FBI wraps up its investigation. The investigators will compile information about Kavanaugh's past and provide their findings to the White House and include the information in Kavanaugh's background file, which is available to senators.

Earlier on Friday, Flake announced he would vote for Kavanaugh, but he looked shaken after being cornered in an elevator by two sexual assault survivors as he headed to the committee meeting.

She alleges that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were both students at Yale.

His remarks came amid questions about whether Republicans want to limit the scope of the FBI's investigation into allegations of sexual assault that have been level against Kavanaugh.

"I've got boys and I've got girls, and when I see what's going on right now, it's scary for all things", Trump Jr. said in an interview with DailyMail TV that will air Monday and Tuesday.

"For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee".

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations, as has Judge.

Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegations, but the Senate directed the FBI to investigate them for up to a week.

They are expected to compile their findings in a new report for the White House that it would then share with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The FBI is engaging in a weeklong probe into the claims against Kavanaugh.

Durbin was among the Senate Democrats pushing aggressively for an investigation at a high-wattage Judiciary Committee hearing last week with Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

When Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill last week, she claimed Judge was in the same room as Kavanaugh when he allegedly pinned her down while at a high school party 36 years ago.

Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency.

However the FBI is carrying out an investigation into Ford's allegations, as well as allegations made by a second woman, Deborah Ramirez. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, that could increase the number of women and liberals who turn out to vote.
