What exactly will FBI probe in Kavanaugh investigation? Feinstein seeks details

'With that being said, I'd like it to go quickly'. Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that, ' Trump said. "We may well be in a different place a week from now because Judge Kavanaugh and his family may well have had exculpatory evidence brought forward".

Trump didn't discuss whether he might release the written scope of work. "They laid out the request, and we've opened it up", press secretary Sarah Sanders said Sunday. He also says he stands by Kavanaugh, who's denied the allegations. But when the New York Times revealed the four witnesses the Federal Bureau of Investigation will question about the accusations against Kavanaugh, notably missing from the list were his former classmates who have contradicted the SCOTUS nominee's testimony about his partying. The consent for a fresh probe was a concession by the Trump administration and Republicans who had strongly contended that Kavanaugh had been thoroughly vetted numerous times.

The FBI has not yet contacted a California professor who says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers.

Following the gut-wrenching testimonies from both Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh last Thursday, Sen.

Kagan, who Kavanaugh cited in his remarks before a contentious hearing Thursday for hiring him to teach at Harvard Law School, refused to answer a student's question about the nomination process.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account.

Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations made against him.

Leaving the hearing this past Friday, Democrat Senator Dick Durbin, said it was his understanding there would be an FBI investigation of "the outstanding allegations, the three of them", but Republicans have not said whether that was their understanding as well. Although she asked Ford all of the questions posed by Republican senators, she asked Kavanaugh only two rounds of questions until GOP senators began speaking again.

Charles Ludington said he chose to speak out because he was "deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterisation by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale". "When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", Ludington said. An attorney for Keyser reaffirmed her previous statement that she doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a gathering or party where he was present, the Judiciary Committee said in a statement on Saturday night.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition. The FBI is not tasked to do that". "There were a lot of emails and a lot of texts flying around about how he was lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee today".

Mr Kavanaugh denied her allegation, as well as accusations made by two other women, and accused Democrats of making him the victim of a political "hit". "It's about how does it affect you", said Graham.

Democrats have been alarmed at reports in United States media the White House was limiting who could be interviewed under the investigation.

President Trump says the FBI will have "free rein" in their investigations. The probe, which the Republican Party had resisted, was forced by Senator Flake's last-minute decision to withhold his previously expressed support for Mr Kavanaugh.

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska also has not announced how she will vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Vice President Mike Pence would cast the deciding vote if the Senate is evenly split.

The Gateway Pundit blog called the memo a "complete" exoneration of Kavanaugh.
