Why the Federal Bureau of Investigation hasn't interviewed Kavanaugh or Ford

CNN's Manu Raju caught up with the retiring Republican earlier today, who arranged for the one-week delay to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation to do a supplemental background check on Brett Kavanaugh.

Jeff Flake says President Donald Trump's mocking of Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, was "not right" and "kind of appalling". She would not say if the remarks would affect her vote.

"What neighborhood was it in?" 'I don't know.' Where's the house? "I don't know", he continued.

"I had one beer".

"Every single word Judge Kavanaugh has said has been picked apart, every single word., second by second of his testimony has been picked apart. I don't know", he added, to cheers from supporters.

McConnell said that since Ford's original letter became public, "a literal mudslide of wild, uncorroborated accusations have poured out". Although she asked Ford all of the questions posed by Republican senators, she asked Kavanaugh only two rounds of questions until GOP senators began speaking again.

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from September 23, just a week after the allegations were known, showed interest in the election among white men at 64 percent, higher than in 2010 when Republicans retook the House and 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate. He said she was cooperating with the investigation.

Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, allegedly threw ice on another person "for some unknown reason" at a bar during his junior year at Yale University.

Fitzpatrick also started three games last season, going 2-1 while Winston was sidelined with a shoulder injury. So we know what we're going to do.

Sen. Lindsey Graham joined Sean Hannity to weigh in on the political implications of the Brett Kavanaugh controversy, warning red state Senate Democrats up for re-election in November that they're "toast" if they vote "no" on the Supreme Court nominee.

Democrats also bristled at Republican blame for delays in getting Judge Kavanaugh to the high court, saying that it was a Republican, Sen. The White House continues to refuse to answer. By Ford's own testimony, there are gaps in her memory. "You're not helping. But it can be worse, you can actually kill somebody's cat, and puncture their tires to get them to shut up".

The bar fight report comes amid Kavanaugh's testimony in which he challenged claims that suggested he was a "sloppy drunk".

Trump also repeatedly encouraged those in attendance to vote Republican in November and called the midterm elections, "One of the most important congressional elections of our lifetime".

Ford's lawyers, Michael Bromwich and Debra Katz, also questioned an apparent Federal Bureau of Investigation decision not to interview Kavanaugh, and expressed concern that the agency was not following up on witnesses and evidence they identified for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

FBI agents have completed a first batch of interviews of four individuals closest to the alleged events, and the White House has signaled to the bureau that it can conduct further interviews, according to the people familiar with the matter.

The judge vehemently denies that.
