Christine Blasey Ford friend willing to cooperate with Kavanaugh FBI investigation

A full Senate vote is expected next week

Jeff Flake in a Capitol elevator Friday said she hopes other Republican senators listen to the stories of women who have been sexually assaulted.

While the vote on Kavanaugh is postponed, the full Senate is now officially considering Kavanaugh's nomination.

The panel split along strict party lines with the 11 Republican members backing Kavanaugh and all 10 Democrats voting against the president's controversial nominee - whose lifelong appointment would tilt the top court decisively to the right.

That probe is supposed to be "limited in scope" and "completed in less than one week", the president said in a statement.

"They have free rein".

"A lot of people who have not been through this - thank God they have not been through this - don't understand that a lot of us don't immediately go to law enforcement", McSally said. "They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of", he said. "And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be fine". "Actually, I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion".

Blasey Ford has maintained that Keyser was unaware of the assault, which is alleged to have occurred in 1982, because she was downstairs at the gathering when it happened upstairs.

Trump ordered the FBI on Friday to reopen Kavanaugh's background investigation after several women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Kavanaugh has also forcefully denied the allegations by Swetnick, calling them completely false and ridiculous.

However, he has said he would listen to what Ford has to say at the hearing and, if persuaded, could withdraw the nomination. Trump said he had been falsely accused by "four or five women" who "got paid a lot of money" to made those charges.

Flake dramatically made the call for a one week delay, so that an FBI investigation could be carried out into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh, at the final moments of a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier Friday. The United States President Donald Trump, under intense pressure from moderates in his own party on Friday ordered an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe against Kavanaugh at the request of Senate Republicans.

The results, if supportive of Kavanaugh's denials, could provide cover for the few Republican swing votes he needs in the Senate to move forward.

That friend, Mark Judge, "sticks out because he was mentioned so much by Dr. Ford, and he might be able to shed some light on her recollection of time and events", Flake said, referring to Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday about her alleged assault by Kavanaugh when they were teenagers. Grassley about the testimony Judge Kavanaugh delivered during his hearing, fully denying all allegations of sexual assault.

An attorney for Leland Keyser, a friend of Ford's who Ford says was at the party, said Keyser also was willing to cooperate with the FBI investigation.

"Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford's account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford's account", Walsh wrote in the letter to the committee that was seen by CNN. Republicans say it was justifiable outrage, because Kavanaugh's reputation has been forever marred and he maintains he has been wrongly accused.

"There is simply no reason to deny Judge Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court on the basis of evidence presented to us", Grassley said.

Speaking to supporters at a rally Saturday night in Wheeling, West Virginia, Trump accused Democrats of using "ruthless and outrageous tactics" against Kavanaugh and urged voters to support Republicans in November's midterm elections.

He said he had been speaking with Democrats to make sure "we do due diligence here". He said, "Thank you", but didn't response to questions on whether he believed Ford's testimony.

"And they're determined to take back power by any means necessary. They don't care who they hurt, who they have to run over to get power", he said.
