With the FBI now investigating, Democrats said they want not only Ms. Blasey Ford's allegations but also those of two other women who have accused Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct to be examined.
President Trump said Monday he wants a "comprehensive" re-investigation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh so long as it's over within the one-week timetable as laid out in the Senate compromise reached Friday.
In a statement to media, Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said the judge was not truthful about his drinking during his Senate testimony last week and that at Yale, Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk. Trump tweeted that no amount of time "will never be enough" for Democrats, most of whom oppose giving Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge, a seat on the nation's highest court, San Francisco Chronicle said.
Speaking at the White House at an event to tout a revised North American Free Trade Agreement, the president said he wants the bureau to complete the probe, prompted by demands from key Senate Republicans last week, because of Kavanaugh's wife and daughters.
Another woman, Julie Swetnick, has alleged Kavanaugh was at high school parties in which she claims to have been gang raped.
FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.
Judge, a recovering alcoholic, called the allegations "so freakish that, even while suffering from my addiction, I would remember actions so outlandish".
"For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee".
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, called on the White House and the FBI to provide the written directive regarding the investigation's scope. "We will urge senators from across the country to do what is right, and vote to reject Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court".
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted narrowly to send Kavanaugh's nomination for a vote in the full Senate on Friday.
Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Kavanaugh vehemently denied the sexual abuse allegations, and also aggressively challenged suggestions he had an alcohol problem at the time.
Voters were also divided on whether Kavanaugh was honest, as 46 percent say yes and 43 percent said no.
"Hopefully anybody who wants to talk to the senator is able to say what they feel", Diehl said of Flake.
They have suggested at least two dozen people they say should be interviewed before the FBI wraps up its investigation. "We certainly want the FBI to do a real investigation", Sen.
If confirmed, Kavanaugh would deepen conservative control of the Supreme Court.
During his Tennessee rally tonight, President Donald Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh again and said the Democrats are trying to "destroy" him.
Trump said he believes Kavanaugh did not lie during his Judiciary Committee testimony about the extent of his drinking in high school and college. Some Democratic lawmakers claimed the White House was keeping investigators from interviewing certain witnesses.
A third woman, Deborah Ramirez, charged in a New Yorker magazine report that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party at Yale University, and shoved his penis in her face, forcing her to touch it while pushing him away.
What is the FBI investigating? "I've had discussions, many yesterday with my colleagues, with the White House counsel's office".
