President Donald Trump speaks at a news conference on trade among the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, in the Rose Garden of the White House, Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Washington.
As the Senate Judiciary Committee vote is now on pause pending an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, this is probably the worst thing Trump could have done to help his case. Sen.
"Have a vote on the man", Conway said of Kavanaugh.
During the rally, Trump also slammed Democrats for trying to destroy Kavanaugh.
He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now".
Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she had offered her full cooperation with the FBI in its investigation but had received no reply.
"There's no time and no place for remarks like that", he said on NBC's Today show.
"It made me feel sort of sick", Sen. "The FBI needs to be allowed to pursue all reasonable investigatory steps from the credible allegations in front of the committee", he said.
It's Tuesday, OP friends, and we don't want to jinx it, so we're not even going to say anything about the pace of this week. "It's left up to us to draw conclusions".
The White House specifically requested Federal Bureau of Investigation interviews with four people: Kavanaugh high school friends Mark Judge and P.J. Smyth; Leland Keyser, who Dr. Christine Blasey Ford identified as at the gathering where she was assaulted; and Ramirez, who's lawyers provided a list of more than 20 additional witnesses to interview.
Other Democrats - and one key Republican, Sen.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a swing vote on the nomination, refused to be drawn into the issue of Kavanaugh's credibility or the timing of an eventual vote on Tuesday.
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from September 23, just a week after the allegations were known, showed interest in the election among white men at 64 percent, higher than in 2010 when Republicans retook the House and 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate. Kavanaugh could be sitting on the Supreme Court in January, when the course was scheduled.
The White House or the Senate would decide what, if anything, should be released publicly.
In response to pressure from the Senate, the White House eased limitations on the investigation that Trump approved on September 28.
When the FBI investigated sexual harassment claims against now-Justice Clarence Thomas by Anita Hill, its final report did not leak.
Democrats have seized most recently on Kavanaugh's indignant, emotional testimony before the Judiciary Committee to question whether he has the temperament for a lifetime appointment on the nation's highest court.
The prospect of bits and pieces leaking from Kavanaugh's report is at the forefront of some Republicans' minds. "As far as I can tell they already have those folks", he said. "So we can all deal with the same sheet of paper". The contents are not expected to be made public. "As opposed to just leaked portions of it".
Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democrats' leader from NY, accused Kavanaugh of delivering a "partisan screed" during the Judiciary Committee hearing last week.
"You can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said.
"Since arriving in U.S. Senate, Cindy has voted with me 100 percent of the time". I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? "After that, we'll find out". Senators have said they want the investigation completed by Friday.
"It's just basic memory functions, and also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain that. encodes memories into the hippocampus so that trauma-related experience is locked there [while] other memories just drift", Ford said.
