Yale turns on Kavanaugh

St. Thomas law prof, Kavanaugh classmate calls for probe into accusations

Harvard Law spokespeople twice declined to comment and once did not respond to the Crimson's multiple requests for clarity on whether Harvard will allow Kavanaugh to continue serving as a Lecturer on Law.

Gerken echoed the ABA, which on Thursday urged the committee to delay a confirmation vote on Kavanaugh.

An attorney for PJ Smyth, another person who Ford said was in the house when she was attacked, said his client "is happy to cooperate fully with this FBI investigation".

In a crowded lounge at Yale Law School, cheers erupted when the middle-aged woman on the TV screen told a Senate panel that she had no doubt that Brett Kavanaugh, a Yale graduate nominated to the Supreme Court, sexually assaulted her when they were teens.

President Donald Trump ordered the FBI on Friday afternoon to reopen the background investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Democrats and outside groups had been calling for the FBI's involvement since the allegations by Christine Blasey Ford and other women first surfaced that Kavanaugh had assaulted them or committed other such acts - allegations that Kavanaugh strongly denies.

Devil's Triangle, drinking game or something sinister, wasn't the the only yearbook question for which Kavanaugh had an answer Thursday.

Kavanaugh later testified after Ford, and in his opening statement, called the hearings a "national disgrace" before denying the allegations.

It wasn't immediately clear whether "current credible allegations" would mean the Federal Bureau of Investigation would interview only people connected with Ford's case or with some of the other women who have come forward with allegations against Kavanaugh. A number of you have written to me to express concerns about Judge Kavanaugh's teaching in the Winter Term 2019.

FBI contacts Kavanaugh Yale classmate in its investigation
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition". He said, "I have no memory of this alleged incident ... do not recall the party" and "never saw Brett act in the manner Dr.

Germany's president hopes for thaw in relations with Turkey
Dr Merkel herself has repeatedly stressed the importance of good relations with Ankara, a partner she relies on to help stem the flow of migrants to Europe.

SC nominee Kavanaugh denies two additional accusations
Sheldon Whitehouse that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman the resident described as a "close acquaintance" in August 1985. Trump refused to answer repeated questions about whether he thought the three women accusing Kavanaugh are simply lying.

Last night a Yale classmate of Brett Kavanaugh's called in to Chris Cuomo's CNN show to say he had "blatantly lied" about his drinking history. He was viewed as a possible no vote, until the announcement on Friday morning.

"I want to look back at this time as a time where people stood up for women and he was rejected", said Tamara Comeau, a third-year law student.

'He was trying to portray that it's one or the other, and at Yale there are many people for which it was both, ' she said.

But Kavanaugh claimed this was not an acronym, but rather a play on a friend with a verbal tic who "wound up" his F's before saying the F-word.

USA senator Jeff Flake has been confronted in a lift by two women who say they have been sexually assaulted.

'I'm not part of some left wing conspiracy, ' she said, adding that she is registered Republican. "The girls from the schools I went to, and I, were friends".

Then Gallagher said: "I was sexually assaulted, and nobody believed me".

Another portion of Kavanaugh's testimony which has drawn both inquiry and ridicule, was the judge's apparently fanciful definitions of yearbook phrases. "He was always one of the beer drinking boys and I drank beer with him", Swisher said. "I was completely astounded when I saw she signed that letter".

Three of Kavanaugh's former classmates at the law school who previously endorsed the judge's nomination have since rescinded their support and said the allegations warrant a "fair and credible investigation".
