Ramirez attorney: Boulder client to cooperate with FBI Kavanaugh investigation

The White House would then likely share the material with the Senate committee. We're not micromanaging this process.

"The Senate is dictating the terms", she said on Fox News Sunday, adding she was not "aware of" any directives from White House Counsel Don McGahn, and adding that senators would need to answer questions about any limits they might have placed.

Indeed, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not tasked with drawing conclusions, but, Comey wrote, "their granular factual presentation will spotlight the areas of conflict and allow decision makers to reach their own conclusions".

Asked about the FBI investigation on Saturday, President Trump told reporters he thought the probe was "going very well".

The White House counsel's office has reportedly provided FBI investigators with a list of witnesses they are permitted to interview as part of the week-long probe, sources within the administration told NBC on the condition of anonymity. "They have free rein to do whatever they have to do". "From the very first moment [Kavanawugh was nominated], Democrats said, 'We're not going to support him, we're not going to vote for him.' And they were going to do everything within their power to fight him".

"They could interview someone who says I saw Judge Kavanaugh get beamed down from a UFO - he's an alien".

Last week, Patrick J. Smyth, who attended Georgetown Prep high school with Kavanaugh, told the judiciary committee that he had no knowledge of the gathering or of any improper conduct by Kavanaugh.

'We can confirm the FBI has reached out to interview Ms. Ramirez and she has agreed to cooperate with their investigation, ' attorney John Clune said in a tweet.

Deborah Ramirez accuses Judge Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her during a drinking game when they were students at Yale University in the 1980s.

He also hinted that the investigation could expand beyond the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh - which the judge has forcefully denied - and blasted Democrats who, he alleged, made the confidential complaint of Christine Blasey Ford public.

Activists participate in the "Believe Survivors".

Kavanaugh has called Swetnick's accusations a "joke". Kavanaugh denies both Ford's and Ramirez's allegations.

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on September 27, 2018.

Kavanaugh's high school friend, Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when a drunken Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, said Friday that he will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that will "confidentially investigate" sexual misconduct allegations against him and Kavanaugh. Kavanaugh has denied being the perpetrator.

The FBI and a spokesman for the Senate judiciary committee did not immediately return requests for comment about the Times report.

However, the White House has reportedly blocked the FBI from investigating Swetnick's claims as officials work to limit the scope of the probe reopened by Trump Friday evening. Evidence of any substance abuse problems could color a claimant's accusation, but the FBI notably does not make any conclusions about the credibility or significance of an allegation in a background investigation report.

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.

"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file", he said in a statement.

A man contacted Sen.
