Federal Bureau of Investigation grills second woman accusing judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault

The FBI has finished interviewing Mark Judge, a friend of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was said to have attended a high school party in the early 1980s where a woman says she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh, Judge's lawyer said Tuesday.

The White House announced Friday afternoon that President Donald Trump had ordered the FBI to open a supplemental background investigation into Kavanaugh.

"They [the White House] can not say, "Oh hey, only interview the people in their neighborhood on one side of the street.' Or 'Only interview people from a certain period of their life, '" Sen".

The highly-anticipated full Senate vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will happen by October 6, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K.Y.) said.

"With that being said, I'd like it to go quickly". "And so these people who have come forward to say that, and say they want to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the White House can not stop that from happening but it's not clear what's going to happen with that information, other than that the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who takes the interview will write it up in a report and send it up the chain".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college.

Following this admission, Flake was confronted on his way back to the chambers in an elevator by two sexual assault survivors, which seemingly affected stipulation that he would only vote Kavanaugh out of the committee if there was an FBI investigation into the assault allegations against the judge.

"It does us no good to have an investigation that just gives us more cover", Flake said.

Walsh has said his client doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party with him.

One of them is Republican Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was greeted by hundreds of liberal protesters, victims of sexual assault among them, during an appearance on Monday in Boston.

"This entire process has been an embarrassment to our democracy as Hoosiers watched firsthand how Senator Donnelly's liberal colleagues used uncorroborated allegations to create a media circus designed to smear and destroy Judge Kavanaugh's reputation", Braun said.

CNN was told that on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell informed the White House that Republican Sens.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has said that the investigation would be "limited to current credible allegations" - raising questions over exactly what would be investigated given that Kavanaugh faces multiple allegations.

He and Kavanaugh were classmates at Georgetown Preparatory School, an elite private school outside Washington.P.J.

President Trump ordered the FBI to investigate the sexual malfeasance claims against Kavanaugh after Senator Jeff Flake caved to the Democrat's demands because two leftist activist women shrieked at him in an elevator. He said Kavanaugh was "rightfully angry" about the accusations, and he added, "Who wouldn't be?"

Immediately, Republican challenger Mike Braun issued a statement critical of Donnelly, while reiterating his own support of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation. "I think it's a very conservative party right now".

"It is up to me, but I'm instructing them (FBI) as per what I feel the Senate wants", Trump said. He initially declined several questions on Kavanaugh, angrily denouncing them as off-topic, before returning to the matter. Speaking on the senate floor on Tuesday morning, Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, said Kavanaugh's testimony was riddled with misstatements and inaccuracies, and accused him of having "grossly mischaracterized his relationship with alcohol".

Rachel Mitchell, the sex-crimes prosecutor who questioned Dr. Christine Blasey Ford last week, wrote in a memo released late Sunday that there were inconsistencies in Ford's testimony and that - given the information at hand - she would not bring criminal charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

"Whatever it is they do, they'll be doing things that we've never even though of", Trump said.
