Trump orders FBI investigation of Kavanaugh, as McConnell says nomination is 'moving' forward



"This is a nomination that deserves to move forward -- and that is precisely what is happening,"
McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor Friday. 

President Trump on Friday ordered the FBI to conduct a limited "supplemental" background investigation into the allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans are "moving" forward with plans to vote.

“I’ve ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh’s file," Trump said in a statement. "As the Senate has requested, this update must be limited in scope and completed in less than one week.”

Trump's order came after several undecided senators whose votes are needed to confirm Kavanaugh called for a weeklong FBI probe before a floor vote.

The Senate had been expected to begin debate on Kavanaugh's nomination this weekend, but after Trump's order, McConnell adjourned the body until Monday. A potential confirmation vote may not come until late next week, next weekend or perhaps the week of Oct. 7.

"This is a nomination that deserves to move forward -- and that is precisely what is happening," McConnell, R-Ky., said on the Senate floor Friday. 
Added McConnell, "Now we will keep the process moving."

Earlier Friday, under pressure from Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked for a FBI investigation “limited to current credible allegations against the nominee," saying it "must be completed no later than one week from today.”

Kavanaugh, who has denied all the allegations, said in a statement he will "cooperate."

“Throughout this process, I’ve been interviewed by the FBI, I’ve done a number of 'background' calls directly with the Senate, and yesterday, I answered questions under oath about every topic the senators and their counsel asked me,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “I’ve done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate.”

Later on Friday, Trump tweeted that “tonight” the “7th FBI investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh” had begun.

-----



Just started, tonight, our 7th FBI investigation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He will someday be recognized as a truly great Justice of The United States Supreme Court!

-------

“He will someday be recognized as a truly great Justice of The United States Supreme Court!” Trump continued.

For days, Republicans have resisted calls from Democrats for the FBI to investigate the claims of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh dating back to high school and college, saying they were capable of investigating the allegations themselves.

But that changed Friday after Flake, who earlier in the day announced he would endorse Kavanaugh, called for a delay in a full floor vote to allow for an FBI inquiry “limited in time and scope.”

While backing Kavanaugh at the committee level, Flake said he'd only be comfortable moving ahead on the floor if the FBI investigates further.

Several other senators -- both Republican and Democrat -- on the fence joined Flake in supporting the move.

“I support this sensible agreement,” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said.

“In order to fully and fairly complete our due diligence, allowing the FBI up to one week to supplement its background investigation is appropriate,” said Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.

“I support Sen. Flake’s call for a non-partisan FBI investigation into the allegations about Judge Kavanaugh – which I’ve been pressing for,” said Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.  

"I applaud Senator Jeff Flake’s decision to rise above the partisan circus on display during this entire process,” said Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.

Other notable politicians -- not serving in the Senate -- also reacted to the decision.

Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who is currently running as a Republican in Utah for the Senate, tweeted that he was in "support" of "the decision to re-open the FBI background investigation into the allegations made by Dr. Ford."

And former Vice President Joe Biden in a statement said Ford "deserves an FBI investigation" and he is "glad that members of the Senate have exercised their power to advise and consent to delay further action on this nomination for a short while longer so that the FBI can do its due diligence in this nomination."

However, he condemned Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying that Thursday he "witnessed" among them "a degree of invective, blind rage, and brute partisanship that threatens not only the Senate and the Supreme Court — it threatens the basic faith in fairness and justice that binds this country together."

An attorney for Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, Debra S. Katz, said in a statement Friday that Ford “welcomes this step in the process.” But Katz took issue with the one-week limit, saying no “artificial limits as to time or scope should be imposed on this investigation."

When asked if they could get the investigation done in a week, a senior FBI official told Fox News, "That depends on the schedules of everyone we'd have to interview, including the accuser, accused and witnesses.”

Ford has named three other people she said attended the 1982 party where she claims she was assaulted. All three named people have said they have no memory of the event, though two said Friday they’re willing to cooperate with the FBI. 

“I will cooperate with any law enforcement agency that is assigned to confidentially investigate these allegations,” Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge said.

“My client, Patrick J. Smyth, is happy to cooperate fully with this FBI investigation,” said attorney Eric B. Bruce. 

Earlier Friday, Kavanaugh’s nomination took a step forward, as the Senate Judiciary Committee endorsed Kavanaugh in a 11-10 party-line vote.

Republicans still expressed optimism Friday that Kavanaugh will be confirmed after the investigation is completed.

“It can be done quickly and then we will be able to move forward to an up-or-down vote in the Senate next week,” South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham said. “I’ve never felt better about the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh than I do right now.”

Flake earlier gave a major boost to Kavanaugh with a Friday-morning announcement that he would support him, saying, "I left the hearing yesterday with as much doubt as certainty."

But he immediately came under heavy pressure, with protesters accosting him and Democrats lobbying him on the sidelines to reconsider.

If Flake remains a "yes," there will be 48 pledged Republicans, with Colins and Murkowski the two remaining wild cards. Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., has not announced his stance, but is expected to support the nominee. Republicans need 51 votes to confirm.

The committee vote came a day after an angry and emotional hearing on allegations of sexual assault made against Kavanaugh. Both Kavanaugh and Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of assaulting her at a high school party in the 1980s, testified before the committee on Thursday in an eight-hour session.

Ford said she's "100 percent" sure Kavanaugh assaulted her.

Kavanaugh emotionally denied Ford’s accusation, along with a number of others made against him in recent days. Kavanaugh trained his sights on committee Democrats.

"This confirmation process has become a national disgrace," Kavanaugh said. "The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process. But you have replaced advise and consent with search and destroy."

Democrats pushed back, asking Kavanaugh why he would not himself urge an FBI investigation into the charges against him. Kavanaugh responded that he would assent to whatever the committee decided, but noted that an FBI probe wouldn’t draw conclusions, only gather information.

Kavanaugh’s nomination is likely to see unanimous or near-unanimous opposition from Democrats, with only a few red-state Democrats, like Heitkamp and Manchin, even considering a vote for him.

On Friday, Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., blasted Kavanaugh's testimony and said it showed him to be "aggressive and belligerent" and took issue with his attacks on Democrats.

"I have never seen anyone who wants to sit on the highest court in the land behave in that manner," she said.

The U.S. Capitol Police said they arrested 88 people on Friday for unlawfully demonstrating in Senate office buildings as they were protesting Kavanaugh's nomination. Police said 81 people were arrested Friday morning outside a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting in the Dirksen office building.

Seven more were arrested Friday afternoon in a separate protest at the Hart building.

All were charged with unlawfully crowding or obstructing, then processed and released.

Confirm Brett Kavanaugh


By The Editorial Board | The Wall Street Journal

The Judge rightly called out the politics of ‘search and destroy.’

Thursday’s Senate hearing on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination was an embarrassment that should have never happened. Judge Kavanaugh was right to call the confirmation process a “disgrace” in his passionate self-defense, and whatever one thinks of Christine Blasey Ford’s assault accusation, she offered no corroboration or new supporting evidence.

Ms. Ford certainly was a sympathetic witness—by her own admission “terrified” at the start and appearing to be emotionally fragile. Her description of the assault and its impact on her was wrenching. She clearly believes what she says happened to her. Her allegation should have been vetted privately, in confidence, as she said she would have preferred. Instead ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein held it for six weeks and it was leaked—perhaps to cause precisely such a hearing circus.

Yet there is still no confirming evidence beyond her own testimony, and some of what she says has been contradicted. The female friend Ms. Ford says was at the home the night of the assault says she wasn’t there. The number of people she says were there has varied from four to five and perhaps more, but every potential witness she has cited by name says he or she doesn’t recall the party.

She still can’t recall the home where the assault took place, how she got there or how she got home that evening. She has no witnesses who say she told them about the alleged assault at the time—until she first spoke of it at a couples therapy session 30 years later in 2012. Mr. Kavanaugh’s name doesn’t appear in the notes of her therapist.

As for Judge Kavanaugh, his self-defense was as powerful and emotional as the moment demanded. If he was angry at times, imagine how you would feel if you were so accused and were innocent as he says he is. To deny the allegations as he did—invoking his children and parents and so many others who know him—and be lying would mean that he is a sociopath. If he were found to be lying, he would be impeached and probably prosecuted. Nothing in his long record in public life betrays the kind of behavior he is accused of against women.

Had he not been as forceful, his opponents would have said he looked guilty. Because he called the Democrats out for their character assassination, the critics now say he lacks the right temperament. The truth is that there is no answer, and no demeanor, that Brett Kavanaugh could offer that the left would credit. Their goal isn’t the truth. They want to destroy Judge Kavanaugh.

Republican Senators turned over their questioning of Ms. Ford to a trained prosecutor from Arizona, who attempted to clarify facts and fill holes in her testimony. Democrats showed zero interest in getting any facts from Ms. Ford. They spent their question time saying they believed Ms. Ford while badgering Republican Chairman Chuck Grassley to call other witnesses.

Yet those potential witnesses have all given sworn statements to Senate staff under penalty of felony that say they don’t recall the party or the alleged assault. Hauling them before the Senate wouldn’t illuminate the truth any more than Thursday’s hearing did.

Incredibly, Democrats spent their time with Judge Kavanaugh asking about drinking games and lines in his high school yearbook. Once Senator Lindsey Graham made that look foolish (see below), Democrats focused on their only other argument, which is that the FBI should investigate. But they well know the FBI would merely repeat the interviews they and the Senate Judiciary staff have already done.

***

The real Democratic goal is to push a confirmation vote past Election Day. They can then spare their incumbents running for re-election from taking a difficult vote. If they win the election, they will then try to block any confirmation until they take over the Senate in January. No nominee to the right of Merrick Garland would then be confirmed in the final two years of the Trump Presidency. The Supreme Court would be divided 4-4 until 2021 at least.

Senate Republicans should understand that these are the real political stakes. This nomination isn’t only about the fate of a single man whose reputation can be discarded like some tabloid celebrity. This is about the future of the Supreme Court and who will control the Senate. If Republicans reject Mr. Kavanaugh based on what we know now, millions of voters will rightly be furious.

But as important, a rejection will bring dishonor to the Senate. It will validate the ambush and smear politics that Democrats are using. And it will turn Supreme Court nominations over to the justice of the social-media mob and the politics of accusation. It’s time for Senators to stand up and confirm Brett Kavanaugh.

Five Big Problems with Christine Blasey Ford's Testimony at the Kavanaugh Hearings

Christine Blasey Ford has testified at the Kavanaugh hearings and she seems like a perfectly nice, sympathetic woman, I guess... if she isn’t falsely accusing you of sexual assault. However, there were still enormous problems with her testimony.

1. She still can’t confirm the basics of her account

She can tell everyone definitively that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, but she doesn’t know when, where, who took her there or picked her up (she was 15), or pretty much anything of significance. She has no facts, no corroboration, no medical report, no police report. 

There is nothing but a claim from a woman with a bad memory and a story contradicted by all her own witnesses. At this point, there is not even any evidence that there was a party at all, much less that Kavanaugh was there or that anything happened between Kavanaugh and Ford.

2. There’s the polygraph weirdness

Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor in Maricopa County, Arizona, who questioned Ford today, went out on what seems to be a strange tangent about the polygraph that Ford took in August. 

Surprisingly, it still prompted Ford to say a couple of very strange things. Ford said the polygraph was done in Maryland because of her grandmother’s funeral and she was asked if it was done on the same day as her grandmother’s funeral. 

Ford did not know the answer to that question. Mitchell also asked if she paid for the polygraph, which would normally be quite expensive, and again, Ford said she doesn’t know. 

If Ford doesn’t have a clear memory of big events that happened to her LAST MONTH, how can anyone be sure her memory of what happened 36 years ago is correct? Was Kavanaugh involved? 

You wouldn’t think someone could get confused about something like that, but you’d also think someone would know if she spent thousands of dollars paying for a polygraph last month.

3. She could have testified in California

At one point, in response to Mitchell’s comment about how this wasn’t the best forum to explore her allegations, Ford agreed it would have been better if she could have testified at home without having to do this publicly in D.C.  -- except she could have done exactly that. Not only was the offer made to her legal team, but there were also news articles about it

It was not a secret. So either Ford is lying or perhaps worse yet, she really doesn’t know what’s going on and her legal team unnecessarily tossed her into the meat grinder for political purposes.

4. Ford’s fear of flying is fake

Ford’s own lawyers have been publicly claiming that she’s too frightened to fly and they have gone out of their way to say that she won't get on a plane because of the Kavanaugh incident. Because of that, they said she’d have to drive cross-country to get to a hearing. Of course, she actually flew. 

Additionally, under questioning, she admitted she had flown to Maryland, Hawaii, and Tahiti. In other words, that was a bald-faced lie. If she is lying about that, what else is she lying about?

5. Her witnesses don’t back up her account

In her initial letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Ford claimed that four people besides her were at the party. That number seems to change by the day, but let’s go with her original claim. Those four people were Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, who she says were both in the room along with PJ Smyth and her friend Leland Ingham Keyser. 

All of them have denied her story under the penalty of felony perjury, which begs an obvious question:  whose house was the mystery party at? 

Are they all supposed to have been partying at someone else's house while they were gone? It makes no sense. 

It’s even more damning that her friend Leland Ingham Keyser says she has never even met Brett Kavanaugh. How do you square that circle? 

Keyser has never met Kavanaugh at all, but she was at the party where Kavanaugh did this? 

Also, her best friend saw her run out of the party but said nothing? She didn’t ask her about it the next day? This single issue in and of itself completely destroys the credibility of Ford's accusation.

Trump praises Kavanaugh after hearing, adds, 'Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful'




President Trump praised Brett Kavanaugh Thursday night after the judge's Senate hearing, blasting Democrats by saying their "search and destroy strategy is disgraceful."

"Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him," the president tweetedminutes after the hearing concluded. "His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!"

Vice President Mike Pence also reiterated his support for Kavanaugh on Thursday night. 

"Today, Senate Republicans conducted a hearing that was fair & respectful to Judge Kavanaugh & Dr. Ford," Pence tweeted.

"The same cannot be said of the Democrats. Based on today & his decades of service, I stand with Judge Kavanaugh – a person of integrity & impeccable credentials. Take the vote."

The responses from Trump and Pence followed daylong testimony Thursday from Kavanaugh, Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, and Christine Blasey Ford, a woman who has accused the judge of sexual assaulting her in the early 1980s.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed during a house party in Maryland, attempting to remove her clothes and putting his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. At the time of the alleged encounter,  Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, she said, adding that Kavanaugh was drunk.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” Ford said. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the claims, calling them "totally false and outrageous."

"We’re talking about an allegation of sexual assault. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years there after," Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News on Monday.

Trump and Pence weren't the only Republicans who came out in defense of Kavanaugh on Thursday. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. slammed Democrats and their Kavanaugh probe earlier in the day. 

"This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics,” a visibily angry Graham said from the dais while pointing at Democratic senators. “And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy.”

“If you’re looking for a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time,” Graham said to Kavanaugh. “This is hell.”

A vote on Kavanaugh's nomination is scheduled for Friday.

SHOCKER: Ex-boyfriend filed restraining order against third Kavanaugh accuser.


By Glenn Reynolds


According to Richard Vinneccy, Julie Swetnick threatened him after they broke up and even after he got married to his current wife and had a child.

“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with POLITICO. “I know a lot about her.”

“She’s not credible at all,” he said. “Not at all.”

More in the below article.

Plus: “When asked if the allegation of a restraining order were true, Avenatti said: ‘I don’t know one way or another,’ adding he would research it further.” Top work, there.

Julie Swetnick, the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a friend of attending house parties where women — including herself — were sexually assaulted, had a restraining order filed against her years later in Miami by her former boyfriend.

A Miami-Dade County court docket shows a petition for injunction against Swetnick was filed March 1, 2001, by her former boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy, who told POLITICO Wednesday the two had dated for four years before they broke up.

Thirteen days later, the case was dismissed, not long after an affidavit of non-ability to advance fees was filed.

According to Vinneccy, Swetnick threatened him after they broke up and even after he got married to his current wife and had a child.

“Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said in a telephone interview with POLITICO. "I know a lot about her.”

"She’s not credible at all,” he said. “Not at all.”

The allegation is likely to raise questions among Republican defenders of Kavanaugh about Swetnick’s credibility after her attorney Michael Avenatti revealed her for the first time on Wednesday.

Reached late Wednesday, Avenatti said he knew nothing of a restraining order and called the line of inquiry irrelevant.

"Complete nonsense. No truth to this at all. Her ex-boyfriend fraudulently used her resume to apply for and obtain jobs and was caught by her," said Avenatti. “Why are you all attacking a sexual assault victim? Would that be appropriate in a court of law?”

Citing the sensitive nature of the case and the explosive politics surrounding it, Vinneccy said he wanted to talk to an attorney first before further discussing the case, which has kept him occupied all day.

“My phone has not stopped since this morning. Everyone is calling,” Vinneccy said.

Vinneccy, 63, is a registered Democrat, according to Miami-Dade County voting records.

Swetnick was identified on Wednesday by Avenatti, who produced a sworn statement asserting that she met Kavanaugh in the 1980-1981 time period and subsequently attended more than 10 house parties where she said Kavanaugh and a close friend of his, Mark Judge, attended.

Swetnick does not accuse Kavanaugh himself of sexually assaulting her in the sworn statement. But she asserts Kavanaugh was present when she was the victim of a “gang rape” by multiple boys at one party.

Vinneccy made clear that he did not believe her story.

“I have a lot of facts, evidence, that what she’s saying is not true at all,” he said. “I would rather speak to my attorney first before saying more."

Avenatti said called the reporting “outrageous” and accused the press of “digging into the past” of a woman who stepped forward and is willing to testify under oath.

“I am disgusted by the fact that the press is attacking a sexual assault victim,” Avenatti said.

When asked if the allegation of a restraining order were true, Avenatti said: “I don’t know one way or another,” adding he would research it further.

Avenatti previously said he had vetted the client and in a sworn statement, she said she still held government clearances.

Democrats Don't Care About the Presumption of Innocence

As a black American, I have a particular sensitivity to the importance of the concept of the presumption of innocence and due process of law.

Few Millennials and modern journalists know of the famous Emmett Till murder case in Mississippi in the 1950’s. It was one of the first major national civil rights murder cases.

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old black boy visiting Mississippi from Chicago. He was beaten beyond recognition, shot, tied with barbed wire, and thrown into Mississippi’s Tallahatchie River.

Why?

Because of an accusation — a mere accusation — that he flirted with a white woman.

Till was only one of the more well known of the many thousands of blacks in the old American South who were tortured, castrated, burned alive, or lynched based only on an accusation of flirtation or sexual assault — they were presumed guilty.

There was no presumption of innocence and no requirement of due process!
With this despicable history as backdrop, it is more than disgusting to see Democrats in the United States Senate trample the basic principle of presumption of innocence and apply the old South standard of presumption of guilt once applied to blacks to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

For Kavanaugh, just as was the case for black males in the old South, there is no presumption of innocence and no requirement of due process by his enemies.

Yesterday, blacks’ enemies were Democrat segregationists and their shock troops in the Klu Klux Klan.

Today, Kavanaugh’s enemies denying him due process and presumption of innocence are progressive and liberal white Democrats and their friends on the left — who disrupted confirmation hearings — and forced Senator Ted Cruz and his wife from a Washington, D.C., restaurant.

They assume that Kavanaugh is guilty in the face of an accusation by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused him of sexual assault 36 years ago.
And whom are some of these liberal Democrats who wish to return to the “presumed guilty” standard that was applied to blacks in the old Democrat South?

  • Judiciary Committee member Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., “I believe Dr. Ford.”
  • Judiciary Committee member Senator Kamala Harris, D-Ca., a former Attorney General of California, who is black: “I believe her.”
  • Judiciary Committee member Senator Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii: “Not only do women like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.”
  • Senator Chris Coons, D-Del., “It is Judge Kavanaugh…who I think now bears the burden of disproving these allegations.”
  • Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., "I believe her. Her story is credible."
No mention of getting the facts. No mention of Judge Kavanaugh deserving due process. All they want is to get Kavanaugh.

Under the Democrats’ new no-due-process standard, any accusation of sexual assault by a woman will be an education and career death sentence for fathers, husband, and sons throughout the nation in all professions.

And now liberals are salivating over two more Democrat “Hail Mary” uncorroborated allegations against Kavanaugh — Deborah Ramirez accusing Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a dorm party at Yale; and, a third, Julie Swetnick, a client of Stormy Daniels’ attorney and Trump hater Michael Avenatti, who alleges he was present at a 1982 party where she was drugged and raped.

Both allegations are suspicious with coincidental timing. The New York Times refused to print the Ramirez story and the most resent revelation has an “Avenatti” taint with neither specifics nor names.

This all seems like the weaponizing and politicizing of sexual assault. It would be interesting to learn to whom these accusers and associates are politically and financially connected.

The liberal atmosphere has become so shameless and vile that comedian Jimmy Kimmel thinks it is acceptable to make a crude and lewd joke about Kavanaugh being castrated.

Regardless of whether or not Dr. Ford attends the hearing tomorrow, if it even occurs — which it should — the entire process has been made a travesty and circus by Senate Democrats and their allies on the left.

Are there no Democrats in the United States Senate with a sense of decency unwilling to sit by while their colleagues attempt to destroy a man’s career, life, and family?

Apparently not.

In his confirmation hearings in 1991, then Supreme Court nominee, and now Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, described the attacks on him as:
“…a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you…”

Today, Democrats and the left are participating in a “high tech lynching” of Kavanaugh because he is a conservative, has ideas different from the liberal Democratic establishment, and does not “kowtow” to the old liberal order.

As Thomas said: “I think something is dreadfully wrong with this country when any person, any person in this free country would be subjected to this… This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace.”

Judge Kavanaugh and his family must feel the same way.
