Supreme Court Justice Kagan won't discuss Kavanaugh

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C

"Brett was a sloppy drunk, and I know because I drank with him", she said. Why even have an FBI investigation?

The question is whether the court will take up those issues with the full bench and robust conservative majority Republicans envisioned when Trump nominated Kavanaugh in July.

One of those, Sen.

Asked if he would have concerns about Kavanaugh if he lied about his drinking, Trump said: "I watched him".

"They should interview, but they should be guided by what the senators are looking for", he said.

Flake, a frequent Trump critic, said it was important last week to "hit the brakes" on the Kavanaugh confirmation process.

Trump ordered the FBI on Friday to reopen Kavanaugh's background investigation after several women accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. "They report phony news", said Trump, who spent more than 80 minutes last Wednesday answering questions from journalists at a news conference the White House scheduled during the U.N. General Assembly session in NY.

"On Thursday, the American people saw the brilliant and really incredible character, quality and courage of our nominee for the United States Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh", Mr Trump said.

Despite an emotional testimony from Christine Blasey Ford, who accuses Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her as a high schooler, the committee voted Friday to advance the confirmation to the Senate floor for a final vote.

Three women have made accusations against Kavanaugh while he was a high school and college student.

"I think given the events of today that's the one question I'm not going to answer", Kagan said. He also said he had heard that Swetnick isn't very credible.

"He said very intently, 'This is tearing our country apart.' We have to do something", said Coons, a Delaware Democrat.

President Trump has tweeted that no matter how much freedom the Federal Bureau of Investigation was given, it would never be enough for Democrats trying to deny Mr Kavanaugh a place on the Supreme Court.

"FBI's hands must not be tied in this investigation".

Another Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has challenged the truthfulness of the Supreme Court nominee's Senate testimony, saying Kavanaugh was often "belligerent and aggressive" when he drank.

He likened Kavanaugh's temperament to that of President Trump, for example, a misplaced comparison that lacks any apparent rationale. On Saturday, Trump himself said the delay and inquiry could be "a blessing in disguise". I was surprised at how vocal he was about he fact that he likes beer ... In response to a statement from Kavanaugh in which he insisted that he was focused on sports and academics in school and never drank to excess, Liz Swisher, another former classmate at Yale who now works as a doctor in Seattle, said that his statements were "not credible".

I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking, and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth.

Trump continued to lament the effect of the scrutiny on Kavanaugh's family. "What his attractive children are going through is not describable".

Kavanaugh needs at least 50 votes to be confirmed by the 100-member Senate.

"With that being said, I'd like it to go quickly".

He lashed again at Sen.

Ludington said in his statement that he witnessed Kavanaugh throw a beer in a man's face once for making a semi-hostile remark, "starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail".

On Monday, Trump said he believes Feinstein "probably" leaked the letter - something she has repeatedly denied.

In one of his more curious comments during the news conference, Trump suggested that a Democratic senator has problems with alcohol.

However, the administration made clear there would be limits. Still, in the memo released late Sunday, she wrote, "the world in which I work is the legal world, not the political world".
