How Democrats And Republicans Are Reacting To The FBI Report On Kavanaugh

On the Democrat side, Sen.

The Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh, was accused by Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her in the early 1980's at a gathering. It became an intense political drama when three women emerged to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s when he was in high school and college.

"I do not decide cases based on personal or policy preferences", Kavanaugh continued.

She said the report was "very limited" and "it looks to be a product of an incomplete investigation".

To guard the sensitive information, the FBI's report is expected to be held in a secure room normally reserved only for classified matters. "There's nothing in it that we didn't already know".

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee wrote an op-ed in Friday morning's Wall Street Journal, describing himself as an "Independent, impartial judge" and admits he "might have been too emotional" during his testimony last week.

The White House defended Kavanaugh's demeanor during the hearings. "I can not imagine a Supreme Court justice who would be so partisan, make such wild claims, and then ask to be put on a bench and trusted his temperament".

Standing in Kavanaugh's way are a handful of key swing votes. CNN on Thursday reported Collins as saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe "appears very thorough".

Collins said she will announce if she intends to vote for Kavanaugh in a speech on the Senate floor at 3 p.m.

Prof Ford's lawyer said eight people were not interviewed who could corroborate her claims, while Ms Ramirez's lawyer said more than 20 witnesses were not contacted.

Democrats saw something very different in the report.

Russian spies targeted Britain's Foreign Office, computers at Porton Down and the chemical weapons watchdog, officials have said. The Dutch authorities released CCTV imagery of the four men arriving at Schipol Airport as well photographs of their passports.

They said 302 people were detained in total, with comedian Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski reportedly among those arrested. Mr Kavanaugh and Prof Ford were not interviewed.

Ford testified last week at a dramatic Judiciary Committee hearing that when she was 15, a drunken 17-year-old Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth after she screamed.

Similar concerns moved Sen. Ben Sasse, who as expected, announced he was supporting the nomination. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications. She's running for re-election in a state president Trump won in 2016 by more than 35 points.

The California Democrat said that the judge's behavior showed "a man filled with anger and aggression".

Lee issued the following statement Thursday after reading the FBI's supplemental background investigation into Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh. His combative and at times downright angry performance drew criticism that Kavanaugh lacked the unbiased, judicious demeanor needed to sit on the high court.

Her opposition leaves Sen.
