FBI interviews Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge as part of investigation

Woman who confronted Sen. Flake on elevator was once a Westchester resident

Sen. Susan Collins of ME - one of three Republican senators who was instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote - said she had extensive conversation with the White House counsel's office and is "confident that the FBI is doing a thorough investigation and that it will be helpful to us as we make our decisions". You can be somebody that was flawless your entire life and somebody can accuse you of something.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.

On Monday, President Donald Trump decried what he described as "trauma" inflicted upon Kavanaugh, but nevertheless said he wants to see the FBI "do a very comprehensive investigation".

The action came days after California college professor Christine Blasey (BLAH'-zee) Ford testified under oath in a Senate committee hearing Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school in the 1980s.

It was not immediately clear where she lived in Westchester or for how long.

The activists behind the protests said they planned to keep up the effort as the FBI investigates accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college.

Mr Kavanaugh struck an angry and defiant tone during the hearing, denying allegations made by three women against him.

Nine of 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee wrote on Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray and White House Counsel Don McGahn, listing 24 people they said should be interviewed by the FBI and urging that the investigation assess all three allegations of sexual misconduct.

Grassley was indeed a senator in 1991 when President George H.W. Bush's nominee was accused of sexual misconduct by Anita Hill and responded to the allegations with a rousing, impassioned speech in his own defense.

A second Kavanaugh accuser, Debbie Ramirez, met with the FBI for about two hours on Sunday, according to two people familiar with the investigation.

"That experience, as well as a lot of others", Flake said at the conference when asked if the confrontation motivated his decision. ABC News reported that the agency finished its interview with Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, who Ford identified as a witness to the assault.

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.

Judge could conceivably corroborate the testimony of Kavanaugh or Ford.

Ludington said he was a varsity basketball and that Kavanaugh enjoyed socializing with athletes.

Lynne Brookes, who said she moved in "the exact same social circles" as Mr Kavanaugh, said "when he would drink, he would get obnoxious".

Flake said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had completed interviews with four people.

The FBI has also interviewed Leland Keyser, who Ford said attended the same party.

The Senate's Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of NY, says Kavanaugh seems willing to mislead senators about matters big and small to ensure his confirmation.

"It's not fair. I think it's fair to do it to me ..."

"That's intentional. Right? Because I beat my head against the wall for a couple years having relationships with senators and then found that our staffs were like, 'no, no, no, have a debate on the floor?" In a statement, Ludington said a group of friends had been staring at the man they said looked like Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40, the band they had just seen. He said he may run - either as a Republican or an independent - if no one else does.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top US court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

McConnell's combative remarks about Democrats came as Trump and lawmakers await the FBI's reopened background check on the accusations against the 53-year-old jurist.
