Moments after pivotal Sen.
Flake was earlier confronted by irate women who said they were victims of sexual assault.
Republicans agreed to Flake's demand, which puts the vote to confirm Kavanaugh by at least a week. It will allow the FBI to investigate allegations of sexual assault leveled against Kavanaugh by several women. But it's hard to forget. "I was underneath one of them while the two laughed". The women in the video have since identified themselves as Maria Gallagher and Ana Maria Archila.
Speaking by phone after the confrontation, Gallagher said she didn't intend to tell Flake about her assault - she also had never told anyone before.
"I said "hello" to him", she said.
Flake said he had to go to a hearing.
NPR's Tim Mak has covered it all week on Capitol Hill.
"I've ordered the FBI to conduct a supplemental investigation to update Judge Kavanaugh's file", Trump said in a statement. Kavanaugh strongly denied the allegation.
Leaving the hearing this past Friday, Sen.
But I have to believe that there was a certain amount of cringing going on last night.
Trump says he and Kim 'fell in love' after exchanging letters
Kim has also promised to accept global inspectors to monitor the closing of a key missile test site and launch pad. Trump began by talking of the massive threat that North Korea posed before he took office in January 2017.
Flake said he would "only be comfortable moving on the floor until the FBI has done more investigation than they have already".
But she stressed that experience as an activist does not matter in situations like her confrontation with Flake.
She said she hopes Sens.
Flake, cornered in the elevator, shifted between looking at them and looking down.
"Not even a little bit", Trump said on Friday. "I plan to support him unless they turn up something - and they might", said Flake, who has indicated that he would like the Federal Bureau of Investigation to speak to Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh's whom Blasey has identified as a key witness to her allegation and who has disputed her account. My hope is that some Democrats will say "Hey, we may not change our vote, but this process was worthy of the institution, and we feel satisfied". Let's listen in to what he said. There were some things that I heard in the testimony yesterday that caught my attention that could be verified.
As the FBI begins the supplemental background investigation of Brett Kavanaugh, Leland Keyser-a friend and named witness of Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Ford-reaffirmed that she "does not know Judge Kavanaugh" and "has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present". The entire exchange was caught on camera (video above).
Later that day on Twitter, Archila shared a photo of her and Gallagher. She said she doesn't know how she made it home, but was not driven. "Mitchell spelled it out and was clear with senators that she could not take this anywhere near a courtroom", Fox News cited a source.
Kavanaugh is the second judge to be nominated by Trump on the nine-member US Supreme Court.
"His reaction shows the power that we have, together, when we chose to tell our stories and stand up for our vision of an inclusive society", she wrote.
By her own account, Ford did not tell a soul about the incident until she got married in 2002. "What are you doing, sir?" "Take whatever time you need".
What does Kavanaugh say about this?
