A look at what the FBI's Kavanaugh investigation will entail

People across America tuned into the Senate hearing wherever they happened to

"Dr. Christine Blasey Ford welcomes this step in the process, and appreciates the efforts of Senators Flake, Murkowski, Manchin and Collins - and all other senators who have supported an FBI investigation - to ensure it is completed before the Senate votes on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination".

Alan Dershowitz called for delaying the vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination until the FBI can investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against the nominee. "I've done everything they have requested and will continue to cooperate", he said in a statement carried by the White House.

Christine Braley Ford is already pushing for removal of the one-week time limit senators agreed to Friday on a new FBI investigation of her allegation that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually molested her 36 years ago at a high school party.

Flake said the committee heard "compelling testimony from Dr. Ford, as well as a persuasive response from Judge Kavanaugh", and he left the hearing yesterday with "as much doubt as certainty".

If there are no major revelations from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Senate could hold final votes on Kavanaugh next weekend.

Republicans said they still plan to move ahead with a procedural vote on Kavanaugh's nomination today but will postpone a final vote on his confirmation that they had hoped would take place Tuesday.

Kavanaugh has vigorously denied the allegations. "But I don't believe it was Brett Kavanaugh". "An FBI investigation might provide more evidence - either favorable or unfavorable to Kavanaugh". They received an in-depth statement from him on Wednesday.

In his Senate testimony, Kavanaugh called Swetnick's allegations a "farce". Ford divulged the details of her charge in a nationally televised hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, and two more women have come forward publicly claiming episodes of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

A supplemental background check into Ford's allegations could also widen beyond witness interviews to include an investigation into a gap that Ford has admitted to in her story: the date of the party.

Listening to Kavanaugh was just as hard as listening to Ford, Mendler said, but the experiences of hearing the two speak, at times in tears and with their voices shaking, was very different. Two other women besides Ford have also lodged public sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

"Judge Kavanaugh is a good man".

They were also asked about a part of Kavanaugh's opening statement in which he said he harbors no "ill will" against Ford, and as his voice trembled, talked about his 10-year-old daughter, who prayed for her father's accuser. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), another Democrat up for reelection in November in a red state, said he would vote "no" on Kavanaugh'.

Referring to his testimony at the Thursday hearing, he stressed that he was transparent and answered questions "about every topic the Senators and their counsel asked me".
