Jeff Flake, Chris Coons On Brett Kavanaugh’s "Angry" Senate Testimony

FILE- Judge Brett Kavanaugh is sworn in to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday Sept. 27 2018

The FBI is free to investigate any sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that it deems credible, two White House spokeswomen said on Sunday, rebuffing reports that the administration has tried to limit the probe.

During the Senate hearing on Friday, Flake huddled with Coons and other Democrats on the panel to enlist support for a bipartisan effort to call for a one week delay so the FBI could investigate the claims made by a number of women against Kavanaugh.

Both Judge and Kavanaugh have vehemently denied any allegation of misconduct.

"The White House is not micromanaging this process", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in an interview with "Fox News Sunday."The Senate is dictating the terms", she said".

Denouncing the reported restraints the Trump White House is reportedly imposing on the FBI's investigation despite the president's vow of no limitations, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)wrote: "This is not how you conduct an investigation".

WASHINGTON- After a dramatic flurry of last-minute negotiations, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh cleared a key procedural hurdle Friday, but his confirmation prospects were still deeply uncertain as Republicans agreed to ask for a new FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations.

Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh, as a Yale University freshman, drunkenly exposed himself and shoved his penis in her face in front of a group of classmates, according to an account she gave to the New Yorker.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, U.S., September 27, 2018.

Before the supplemental FBI investigation was ordered by the President on Friday afternoon, Sen.

The president revisited the question of "scope" on Twitter, writing in part: "I want them to interview whoever they deem appropriate, at their discretion". "They laid out the request, and we've opened it up", she said, adding, "This can't become a fishing expedition like the Democrats would like to see it be".

Many Democrats have called for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to take a broader look at whether Kavanaugh may have misled senators by minimizing his carousing behavior in high school and college or by mischaracterizing entries in his high school yearbook that could indicate a penchant for drunken and misogynistic behavior.

She expressed sympathy for Ford, but said Kavanaugh deserved protection, too.

Conway also revealed that she had been a victim of sexual assault.

The White House can order investigators to pursue other lines of inquiry and interviews if their interviews with people on the current list of witnesses lead them in that direction, and that may have been what Trump's tweet was referring to. "They're going to do whatever they have to do, whatever it is they do".

"If truth were the only goal, there would be no clock, and the investigation wouldn't have been sought after the Senate Judiciary Committee already endorsed the nominee", he said.

As the FBI begins a seven-day investigation into accusations of sexual assault that Trump says never happened, some are describing it a scam. "It's not my job to judge her because I don't know her".

She indirectly criticized Trump last week after he questioned why Ford didn't report her assault decades ago. "You're telling me that my assault doesn't matter, that what happened to me doesn't matter and you're going to elect people who do these things into power".

"Ford is political collateral, and they do not care", Mace said. Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, the adult film actor who says she had a sexual affair with Trump, a claim the president denies. I haven't met her.

Round, of Vermont, said she feels the whole episode could end up hurting Democrats more than helping them in this fall's elections, just more than a month away.
