UB40 Want Nothing to Do With Brett Kavanaugh

Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him, but the president also said "speed" was important in the process.

A Harvard Law School spokeswoman confirmed Kavanaugh's decision to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The White House noted that Kavanaugh wasn't arrested or charged, and mocked the incident as irrelevant.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of trying to derail the nomination on Monday, declaring: "The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close".

"You can not discount what he is saying and professing at age 53 when it flies in the face of being truthful", Schumer said.

Kavanaugh's high school and college drinking career is under scrutiny following claims he made to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he never blacked out from drinking or behaved belligerently while drunk amid allegations that he sexually assaulted at least two women during high school and college. Vice-President Mike Pence would break any 50-50 tie in Kavanaugh's favour. Senate Republicans have privately expressed similar sentiments.

As hundreds of supporters cheered, Trump delivered a crude imitation of Ford from her testimony, in which she vividly described a violent sexual assault by Kavanaugh in the early 1980s but admitted that details of the time and place were lost to memory.

Ford also appears unable to remember key elements about the incident, Mitchell wrote.

Michael R. Bromwich, one of Ford's lawyers, called it a "a vicious, vile and soulless attack" in a post on Twitter.

"They seriously call into question his character and morality", the letter reads, "and should disqualify him from a lifetime appointment as a Supreme Court Justice" and a Harvard Law School lecturer. She said Judge was also in the room.

A vote to confirm Mr Kavanaugh has been delayed as the FBI investigates the claims, which he denies. Jeff Flake of Arizona, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Joni Ernst in her Senate offices ahead of the Senate confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill in Washington on July 31. "That's the only thing I remember, '" Trump said of Ford, as he impersonated her on stage.

Donald Trump defended his pick but conceded that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol. One of them is Republican Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was greeted by hundreds of liberal protesters, victims of sexual assault among them, during an appearance Monday in Boston.

■New questions are being raised by Democrats about whether, sexual misconduct allegations aside, Kavanaugh has been truthful about his drinking, and has showed the proper temperament to be a judge on the nation's highest court.

On the first, Kavanaugh clearly told the Senate he drank in high school and college.

Just when you thought the chaos surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh couldn't get any weirder, UB40 gets added to the mix. Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

In a switch in tactics, Democrats are raising new questions about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's truthfulness when he testified to Congress last week. But he has also stood firmly behind Kavanaugh, praising the judge's own testimony in which he denied the assault allegations.

Swetnick has not. She alleged in an affivadit that Kavanaugh engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behaviour towards girls" at parties in Maryland in the early 1980s.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, one of the three Republican senators who will likely decide Kavanaugh's fate, said Monday she is "confident that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews" when asked if the senator is satisfied with the scope of the inquiry.
