White House not 'micromanaging' Kavanaugh probe

Share

Kavanaugh was interviewed by the committee on Tuesday about the allegation and categorically denied the claim. The committee vote was 11-10 along party lines.

"I was, you know, underneath one of them while the two laughed", she said.

Ford told the Judiciary Committee that some weeks after the alleged assault, she ran into Judge at a local grocery store where he was working for the summer.

Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from The Citadel and a Republican state representative from Daniel Island, South Carolina, said she had been sexually assaulted as a teen herself. Bill Nelson of Florida, Joe Donnelly of IN and Jon Tester of Montana all said they would vote no. "One, the Supreme Court is the lone institution where most Americans still have some faith".

Senate Republicans, who hold a narrow 51-49 majority, were forced by dissent within their ranks to slow down the confirmation process.

A last-minute agreement struck with Sen Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., to get the votes necessary to pass the nomination out of committee Friday means a full Senate vote will not happen until later in the week, ostensibly after senators receive the results of the FBI investigation.

Flake's vote on final approval is not assured either. The request followed reports of sexual wrongdoing by Kavanaugh.

It's still not clear whether Mr Kavanaugh can get to at least 50 votes on the Senate floor, which would allow Mike Pence, the vice president, to break a tie and confirm him to the Supreme Court. John Kennedy asked Kavanaugh, "None of these allegations are true?" "I encourage them to use the next week to gather any additional relevant facts, and then act on this nomination".

McSally has come out as a survivor of sexual abuse at the hands of her high school track coach. She told the senators that it was "a very unremarkable party" for Keyser. They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do.

Meanwhile, in Alaska Sen. Susan Collins - have also avoided taking a firm position so far. 'I think it's galvanized the women on the right more than it's galvanized the women on the left'.

Martial, Bailly, Pereira join Pogba to rebel against Mourinho
The deteriorating relationship between Mourinho and Pogba has been a talking point throughout most of the calendar year so far. Another frustrated player is Pereira who has just got limited opportunities since returning from a loan spell with Valencia.

Cindy Noyes, a registered Republican in ME, attended public schools with Collins and usually agrees with her.

"I had planned to just talk to him nicely, but once when I saw that he was voting for Kavanaugh my niceties went out the window", she said.

That potential has already convinced Anchorage Republican Women's Club president Judy Eledge to consider supporting a Murkowski primary challenger in 2022.

As for Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher, the women who confronted him in the elevator, Flake said their intervention was "poignant", but that he believed "some of their concern was how Kavanaugh would rule on the court".

With the Republicans holding a narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate, that placed pressure on Trump to order the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Grassley repeated, "Nevertheless, you made a decision on this nomination in less than 24 hours".

Other Republicans entered, including Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, remain undecided.

By day's end, the White House acceded and asked for an investigation, too. The campaign features a video on social media and a series of direct text messages. Kavanaugh himself said Thursday that he wouldn't voluntarily withdraw. "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting", Trump said.

"This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election", he said. Most polls suggest that Democrats have a distinct advantage on that front.
