Cornyn Releases His Statements From Senate Floor Regarding Judge Kavanaugh

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is asking the FBI to investigate apparently false sexual misconduct allegations leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in before testifying Thursday to the Senate Judiciary Committee during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.

On Friday, Republicans and the White House agreed to a one-week delay in Kavanaugh's confirmation so that the FBI can investigate the sexual assault allegations.

Pressed on what he thought of delaying the Kavanaugh vote to allow time for an FBI investigation, Trump said: "Well, I'm going to let the Senate handle that".

Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement that he referred the matter to the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI to investigate the man's apparent false statements. A committee vote on Kavanaugh is expected Friday, with a vote on his nomination possible by as early as the weekend.

John Clune, attorney for Deborah Ramirez has indicated that the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe has contacted his client as they begin to look outside of Dr. Chrstine Blasey Ford's assault allegations.

Hirono was referring to the accounts brought forward by Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick, who have leveled sexual assault or misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh stemming from his high school to his college years.

Sanders said Trump, who has vigorously defended Kavanaugh but also raised the slight possibility of withdrawing the nomination should damaging information be found, "will listen to the facts" of the FBI investigation. Just what the FBI will investigate remains a mystery.

According to a letter Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray, a Rhode Island man contacted Rhode Island Sen.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway delivered a similar message Sunday, repeating that the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".

"I don't need a backup plan", Trump said.

Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh exposed his penis to her during a drunken party at a Yale University dormitory, when they were undergraduates. He already had been accused by another woman of attempted sexual assault when the two were in high school. "They'll make their decisions and they do a good job".

Leland Ingham Keyser, a close friend of Dr. Ford, said in a statement through her legal counsel that: "Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with [or] without, Dr. Ford".

"The White House is not micromanaging this process", Sanders insisted without answering the question.

"I've never known McConnell to be anything other than candid and honest", said Jennings, who did not have direct knowledge of the conversations with the White House.

A Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Brett Kavanaugh revealed he is not able to be a a "nonpartisan" judge through his "bizarre" claim in his testimony last week that he is the victim of a Democratic "conspiracy to do him in".

'I would expect it's going to turn out very well for the judge, ' he said just before departing for a rally in West Virginia.

In her Senate appearance Thursday, Ford lamented her foggy memory but offered up a clue - an encounter with Judge at a supermarket he worked at an estimated six to eight weeks after the alleged attack. The committee has said the probe should be limited to "current credible allegations" against Kavanaugh and be finished by Friday.
