'It's a very scary time for young men in America'

'It's a very scary time for young men in America'

It marked an aggressive change of tactics after Trump had opted to show restraint toward Christine Blasey Ford, calling her a "very credible witness" following her Senate testimony against Judge Brett Kavanaugh last week.

"Mr. Judge completed his Federal Bureau of Investigation interview", attorney Barbara Van Gelder said in a statement.

Kavanaugh and Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, where they answered questions about the allegations. The FBI has been authorized to interview anyone it wants, with a focus on two allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh raised separately by Ford and Ramirez, sources close to the process say.

But Kavanaugh has been waylaid by accusations of sexual assault by Ford and two other women who have spoken out publicly, and by doubts about his testimony before the Senate, which included conspiracy-mongering and dubious descriptions of his high school and college years.

Trump made the remarks at a freewheeling rally that comes as the FBI investigates allegations that the embattled Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted female students while in high school and college.

Kavanaugh strongly denies the accusation, but President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him.

In the past 24 hours, in response to pressure from Democratic and moderate Republican senators, the White House has eased limitations on the FBI background investigation into Kavanaugh that Trump set into motion Friday.

On Tuesday, while speaking with reporters at the White House, he acknowledged the rising suspicions about whether Kavanaugh had been truthful to senators on questions about his high school and college-age drinking habits.

Trump had previously refrained from attacking Ford personally, although he sent a tweet last month in which he questioned why Ford or her parents had not "immediately" filed charges with local law enforcement after the alleged incident.

Protesters have also focused on two other senators who are undecided on Kavanaugh - moderate Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Writing to the FBI, attorneys for Professor Christine Blasey Ford said it was "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a thorough investigation without interviewing her.

The geography of the city, which sits at the end of a long, narrow bay , could have magnified the size of the tsunami, it said. Nearly 17,000 people have sought refuge in 24 shelters, according to the National Disaster Mitigation Agency.

Kavanaugh has denied Swetnick and Ford's claims.

The senator said he is requesting the recordings because the committee has obtained a letter that "raises specific concerns" about the reliability of Ford's polygraph test. The Kavanaugh hearing crystallized what has become a central divide in American politics.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a swing vote on the nomination, refused to be drawn into the issue of Kavanaugh's credibility or the timing of an eventual vote on Tuesday. "There's plenty to disbelieve in what he said but, again, it's very hard to sort through this until you have the investigation, which is why we pushed so hard to make sure that took place".

What do they have to do with Kavanaugh? "I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building - against these last-minute allegations".

President Trump reiterated his support for Mr Kavanaugh on Tuesday, saying he believed the Senate would approve the judge. Senate Republicans have privately expressed similar sentiments.

He said that Kavanaugh's life was "in tatters" and urged the crowd to think about his family.

The FBI is expected to spend the coming days investigating the sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh.

His attorney, Barbara "Biz" Van Gelder, wouldn't say Tuesday when the interview concluded or what Judge was asked.
