Protesters arrested after staging sit-in at Senate office building

  • US Supreme Court nominee: 'I am independent, impartial'

"It's time to vote".

However, Dianne Feinstein, the most senior Democrat on the committee, criticised the scope of the probe, saying: "What I can say is that the most notable part of this report is what's not in it". "Those fears have been realized". On Monday, three days into the investigation, the White House gave the FBI approval to interview more people, but the bureau was still constrained by an initial directive to investigate only credible allegations of sexual misconduct, one of the people said.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh writes an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal addressing his emotional Senate testimony; WSJ panel weighs in on 'The Story'. He denies both allegations. In addition, because each state gets two votes in the Senate regardless of population, the confirmation process overweighs the views of voters in small states, where Republicans tend to dominate.

"This is now the 7th. time the FBI has investigated Judge Kavanaugh", Trump wrote.

Brett Kavanaugh will "potentially, hopefully" be on the Supreme Court in short order, President Donald Trump said Thursday night to a crowd chanting "Kav-a-naugh" in Rochester, Minn.

Mexican officials have said they hope the steel and aluminum dispute can be resolved before USMCA is signed. Canada has levied tariffs on a range of USA imports, including steel and aluminum.

But 10 staffers on the Senate Judiciary Committee will have access to the report in hard copy so they can brief senators who have not have time to read it for themselves. Senators were allowed to take notes but not remove them from the room, he said.

Senator Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, said it was "a very thorough investigation". "We are profoundly disappointed that after the tremendous sacrifice she made in coming forward, those directing the FBI investigation were not interested in seeking the truth".

Lawyers for two women making claims against Mr Kavanaugh - Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez - also criticised the FBI's probe. "But we likely never will know, given that your agents were barred from investigating", Pittard said. "We are deeply disappointed by this failure".

In a letter to President Trump, Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Judiciary Committee ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein discussed their understanding that "conducting background investigations on nominees has always been the FBI's standard practice, and it is common for such background investigations to be reopened when new information about a nominee becomes known".

"As a judge, I have always treated colleagues and litigants with the utmost respect".

The school is a beneficiary of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) National Reading Program. She added: "My husband and I appreciate all that you're doing to serve our country".

The reopened FBI investigation was prompted by reservations expressed last by Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona - a key vote on the nomination - called for it with the backing of Republican Sens.

The FBI didn't even use the entire week it was allotted.

The letter says that in his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Kavanaugh "displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for election to the highest court of the land".

That's put a pair of female Republican senators, Maine's Susan Collins and Alaska's Lisa Murkowski, under excruciating pressure.

On Wednesday, all three took issue with Trump's mocking of Ford the night before at a political rally in MS that drew laughs from his supporters. She told reporters she'd not announce her position until Friday. "That's what I'm waiting for".

Colorado was ahead 7-0 at home against Washington in the seventh on homers by Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl. As for the validity of said note, well, I'm not making any guarantees. "This team enjoys playing on the big stage".

Brett Kavanaugh, who is fighting to salvage his US Supreme Court nomination, angrily and tearfully denied on Thursday a university professor's accusation that he sexually assaulted her 36 years ago and complained about a "political hit" after she told a dramatic Senate hearing she was "100 per cent certain" he did it.
