The Arizona sex crimes prosecutor who questioned Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has concluded that no reasonable prosecutor would bring a case against the U.S. Supreme Court nominee based on the evidence presented at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday.

Kavanaugh has also forcefully denied the allegations by Swetnick, calling them completely false and ridiculous.

Mitchell argued there were inconsistencies in Christine Blasey Ford's narrative and said no one has corroborated Ford's account of what she says happened between her and Kavanaugh. Whether Ford or Kavanaugh have an issue with it doesn't seem like it would be enough to keep a motivated producer or director from getting it made.

Dr Ludington, who now teaches at North Carolina State University, said Mr Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker" at university.

"When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", Ludington said in his statement to The Post.

The Senate Judiciary Committee asked the FBI Saturday to investigate a man who made an unfounded rape claim against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and then later recanted, saying the man had acted in bad faith.

"The White House isn't intervening", Sanders said.

"Out of respect for the integrity of the process, we will have no further comment at this time". This is. a Senate process.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition. The FBI is not tasked to do that".

Christine Blasey Ford testified last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in 1982 when they were both in high school. I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes. "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said.

Initially investigators were only going to speak to four witness, which led to cries of outrage from Democrats and even some Republicans.

Ford said another boy, Mark Judge, was in the room with Kavanaugh when she was attacked; Judge has said he doesn't remember the incident. "We will urge senators from across the country to do what is right, and vote to reject Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court".

Jeff Flake had a message for his friend Democratic Sen. Judge has also denied misconduct allegations. "They'll be doing things that we have never even thought of", Trump said as he left the White House for a trip to West Virginia. Donnelly called the allegations "disturbing and credible". "It's not meant to be a fishing expedition", White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on CNN's "State of the Union". Democrats had already delayed the committee vote on Kavanaugh by one week.

Some Democrats have expressed concern the FBI - in their investigation into sexual allegations against Kavanaugh - are reportedly not talking to high school and college classmates, some of whom have said Kavanaugh drank to excess.

GOP leaders reluctantly agreed to a limited investigation lasting no longer than one week due to their razor-thin majority in the Senate. "And hopefully at the conclusion everything will be fine".

Flake conceded that "some people were turned off by the rawness of it, but as I said at the time, had I been what I felt was unjustly accused, that's probably how I would have responded as well".

At another point, he said he didn't want the probe of Kavanaugh to turn into a "witch hunt", a term Trump has repeatedly used to describe the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Muller III into Russian election interference.

At least three women have accused Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge, of years-ago misconduct. He denies all of their claims.
