FBI reaching out to other women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

President Donald Trump and the Republicans were quickly criticized after it was announced that the FBI would investigate the accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because multiple reports found that the probe would be severely limited in scope and closely managed by the White House.

"You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something, doesn't necessarily have to be a woman", Trump said.

President Donald Trump said that it's a "scary time" for young men in America since they can face sexual assault allegations even when they may be innocent.

US President Donald Trump has told reporters that it is a "difficult" and "scary" time for young men in the US. "This is a very, very - this is a very hard time".

He 'yelled at Democrats, ' she said, and his suggestion that Christine Blasey Ford's allegation had something to do with Democrats avenging the Clintons was 'unbelievable'. They also have criticized Kavanaugh for his angry testimony about the allegations - which include being present at a gang rape - when he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

The activists behind the protests said they planned to keep up the effort as the FBI investigates accusations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh when he was in high school and college. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations against him. If all Democratic senators vote against Kavanaugh, Republicans - who have a 51-49 edge in the Senate - can only afford to lose one vote to get the judge's confirmation passed. Monday, who similarly said that he fears more for his sons than his daughters and the chance they'll be victims to false accusations of sexual misconduct.

The New York lawmaker said the claims of Kavanaugh's accusers deserve a full investigation but stressed that the FBI review should be finished this week.

At a White House press conference, Trump said the treatment of Kavanaugh and his family by media and Democrats was "not describable".

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, listens to complaints from Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on the opening day of his confirmation hearings, September 4, 2018.

Ford, a professor in California, has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly assaulting her while both were teenagers in Maryland in the early 1980s.

The report says 21-year-old Dom Cozzolino told police that Kavanaugh threw ice at him for "some unknown reason".

Emphasis mine. Kavanaugh had heard that Ramirez - a person whom he described in that same Senate testimony as "friendly, not friends" - had been calling around to Yale classmates to get some people to refresh her recollection about something. "It does us no good to have an investigation that just gives us more cover", he said at the Forbes Under 30 Summit. At his first Supreme Court confirmation hearing, September 4, he portrayed himself as a neutral arbiter of the law who is above politics, telling the Judiciary Committee that the Supreme Court "must never be viewed as a partisan institution".

"I don't think what he said is any different than what Justice Thomas said", Grassley said.

Two other people who Ford said attended the same party have also been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. At least one undecided Republican, Sen.

Among the allegations McConnell criticized was one brought by a "tabloid lawyer" he did not name whose client has alleged she was victimized at a party attended by Kavanaugh friends and for which "there conveniently happened to be zero witnesses".

He said the Democrats are undermining Kavanaugh's credibility and are "willing to do anything or hurt anyone" to submarine his agenda.
