.@nycsouthpaw: When career prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asked #Kavanaugh about his drinking & the July 1 party where Judge and Smyth were in attendance – a key date that aligns with Ford's account – Republican senators then came to his rescue and benched her yahoo.com/news/kavanaugh…
American Bar Association: delay #Kavanaugh confirmation vote until an FBI investigation is completed into the sexual assault allegations against him #KavanaughHearings cnn.com/2018/09/27/pol…
"For the good of the country and the future credibility of the Supreme Court in a world that is finally learning to take reports of harassment, assault and abuse seriously, it is time to find a nominee whose confirmation will not repudiate that lesson."

Flake proposes one-week postponement of floor vote to allow FBI probe into #Kavanaugh

Trump calls Ford a "very fine woman" and a "very credible witness," says he will defer to Senate on whether to open an FBI investigation and delay a floor vote

Sen. Lisa Murkowski joins Sen. Jeff Flake in backing delay in Senate vote on #Kavanaugh pending an FBI investigation #KavanaughHearings #DelayTheVote

3.

Senator Joe Manchin supports Sen. Jeff Flake's call for one-week delay of full Senate vote on #Kavanaugh to allow an FBI investigation #DelayTheVote on.wsj.com/2DMPB8e
Mark Judge has the same casual relationship with the truth as Bart O'Kavanaugh.
12 years before #Kavanaugh's unhinged, partisan, conspiratorial rants prompted the ABA to urge senators to #DelayTheVote, it had expressed serious concerns over “his professional experience and the question of his freedom from bias and open-mindedness” washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…
"The FBI moved immediately given the short time frame. Agents had sought to schedule an interview with 1 of 2 other women who, after Ford went public, made accusations of their own about alleged assaults dating to #Kavanaugh’s days in high school and Yale" latimes.com/politics/la-na…
i don't why men are so emotional must be that time of the month
Good rundown of #Kavanaugh's dissembling, distortion and diversion during the #KavanaughHearings.

2018, when the venerable New York Times metamorphosized into the Urban Dictionary. What a time to be alive. nyti.ms/2OjXsOA
Trump, today: The FBI has "free reign" in the investigation; "they’re going to do whatever they have to do."

Also today: White House limits scope of the FBI’s #Kavanaugh investigation, will not permit agents to investigate accuser #JulieSwetnick's claims nbcnews.com/politics/polit…
"The limited scope seems to be at odds with what some members of @SenJudiciary seemed to expect when they agreed to give the FBI as much as a week to investigate allegations against #Kavanaugh"

cc @JeffFlake @Sen_JoeManchin @lisamurkowski @SenatorCollins
So Trump's promised "thorough investigation" excludes
#JulieSwetnick's "train" allegations
• verifying Judge's employment at Safeway (i.e., #July1st1982)
• why #Kavanaugh’s account of his drinking at Yale differs dramatically from those of former classmates.

Guilty af.
"Led by Don McGahn, the White House counsel, Trump’s advisers are helping direct the scope of the background check."

The 4 witnesses: Mark Judge, Leland Keyser, P.J. Smyth & Debbie Ramirez.

The FBI does *not* plan to question Julie Swetnick. #Kavanaugh
The #Kavanaugh Cover-Up.

"The White House has asked that the F.B.I. share its findings after investigators complete those interviews, and at that point, **Trump and his advisors would decide whether to have the accusations investigated further.**"
Another notable omission from the witness list: Mark Judge's former girlfriend Elizabeth Rasor, who is willing to testify that he told her about an incident at the time involving him & other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman (i.e., a "train")

Searing, provocative symbolism from Bruce MacKinnon @CH_Cartoon
#Kavanaugh #MeToo
Rigged.

#ChristineBlaseyFord's legal team said Sunday they have not yet been contacted by the FBI despite the narrowing time frame for the #Kavanaugh investigation abcnews.go.com/Politics/chris…
"Elizabeth Rasor has not been contacted by FBI despite repeated offers to cooperate.

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player and friend of #Kavanaugh’s at Yale, will deliver a statement to FBI detailing violent drunken behavior by Kavanaugh"
washingtonpost.com/powerpost/admi…
"@PressSec Sanders said an investigation into Swetnick’s claims & whether #Kavanaugh may have misled lawmakers in his Senate testimony would not be acceptable."

Investigating sexual assault and perjury are "not acceptable"? To whom?
"Chad Ludington said he frequently saw #Kavanaugh “staggering from alcohol consumption” during their student years ..

#Kavanaugh often became “belligerent and aggressive” while intoxicated, including "starting a fight that landed a mutual friend in jail"

Text messages show #Kavanaugh was tampering with potential witnesses, seeking to undermine Debbie Ramirez's allegation before it became public nbcnews.com/politics/supre…
Text messages show #Kavanaugh was tampering with potential witnesses, seeking to undermine Debbie Ramirez's allegation before it became public.

One of them, Kerry Berchem, has tried to get those messages to the FBI but has yet to be contacted
nbcnews.com/politics/supre…
"The texts also demonstrate that #Kavanaugh and Ramirez were more socially connected than previously understood and that Ramirez was uncomfortable around Kavanaugh when they saw each other at a wedding 10 years after they graduated"
Letter signed by 400 law professors: "We have differing views about Judge #Kavanaugh's other qualifications. But we are united in believing that [he] did not display the impartiality & judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land" wsj.com/livecoverage/k…
