GOP senator: Secret FBI report shows no Kavanaugh misconduct

Kavanaugh, 53, now a judge on the powerful District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, has denied the claims.

With a razor thin 51-49 margin, Trump needs the vote of every Republican senator to push through his nominee.

Crowds of activists, many of whom wearing black - commonly associated with supporting sexual assault survivors - swarmed inside the Hart Senate Office Building Thursday afternoon.

Carrying signs that read "Women must be heard" or simply "Kava Nope", protesters marched from Washington's District Court to the steps of high court, chanting along the way.

Kavanaugh described his testimony as "forceful and passionate" - "because I forcefully and passionately denied the allegation against me". She's running for a Senate seat in Arizona against Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. "The second thing we know for sure is that there's no way anything we did would satisfy the Democrats". A final vote could come Saturday.

Could Brett Kavanaugh's nomination undermine the public standing of the Supreme Court?

Comments by two of them - Jeff Flake and Susan Collins - indicated the Federal Bureau of Investigation report, which was the latest twist in the pitched political battle over Mr Kavanaugh, may have allayed their concerns about him.

A second undeclared Republican, Susan Collins of ME, also expressed satisfaction with the probe, calling it "a very thorough investigation" and paid two visits to the off-limits room where the document was being displayed to lawmakers. "Those fears have been realized".

At the MS rally, Trump also turned his ire on Julie Swetnick, who claims Kavanaugh took part in efforts at parties during high school to get girls intoxicated so that groups of boys could have sex with them. "It's time to vote".

He explained: "Screen Unlock technology is something very new and there's a definite cost required for that new technology". The OnePlus 6T is likely to ship with Android 9 Pie OS with Oxygen OS 9.0 to offer the latest OS from Google .

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is declining Democrats' request for a briefing by FBI agents on the investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The FBI's report will be available at a sensitive compartmented information facility, or SCIF, in the Capitol Visitor Center, a secure room designed for senators to review sensitive or classified material, two Senate officials said.

For example, if the White House Counsel's Office puts a 30-day limit on the background, but in the course of doing the background investigation and witness interviews, the FBI comes back to the White House and says, look, we have done what you have asked, but based upon what we found, we really need to do more, in my experience, the White House will generally say, go do more. He also blamed Democrats for the treatment he received.

Most Democrats opposed Mr Trump's nomination of Mr Kavanaugh from the outset.

Interested senators were briefed by those staffers Thursday morning, with one hour dedicated to Democrats and the next to Republicans.

"There are dozens of people out there that they could have questioned", Hirono told AFP.

Also interviewed was Tim Gaudette, who, according to Judge Kavanaugh's calendars, hosted a party in July 1982 that Democrats say could have been the get-together where the assault happened, and Chris Garrett, a Kavanaugh friend who Ms. Blasey Ford says is the person who introduced her to Judge Kavanaugh.

Her powerful account, along with Kavanaugh's angry rebuttal, has divided the country, rekindling the national conversation on sexual misconduct and the burden of proof in the #MeToo era.

But his Journal piece, headlined "I am an independent, impartial judge", appeared aimed squarely at Republicans on the fence who have expressed concerns about his temperament and partisan attacks during the hearing.
