President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that allegations of sexual misconduct against his U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, showed that "it's a very scary time for young men in America" who now may be presumed guilty even when innocent.
Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst said Tuesday that barring any new information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation she intends to vote to confirm.
"It is a very scary time for young men in America when you could be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters on the White House lawn before boarding Marine One.
The FBI is expected to interview Judge Kavanaugh and some of the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct - including Prof Ford, who testified last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Jeff Flake said he was anxious about the conservative federal appeals court judge's performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.
"She's always had my back", Trump said. When asked how the American people will have confidence in the probe if its results are not made public, Feinstein said, "Well, let's see".
Le'Veon Bell ending Steelers madness with return date
He rushed for 1,291 yards with nine touchdowns over 15 games in 2017 with the Steelers, his fifth year in Pittsburgh. Several teams have called the Steelers asking about Bell's availability in a trade.
Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency. "I can't say, because I don't know what the investigation will say". "And in all the years I have known him, I have never seen him to be disrespectful or inappropriate with women".
The White House rebutted these claims with statements from two former Yale classmates of Judge Kavanaugh.
The FBI will also question Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.
In a letter addressed to FBI Director Chris Wray and the general counsel Dana Boente, Ford's attorneys lay out the steps they took to offer Ford's cooperation, which they said began with a Friday night conversation with Boente.
He says it's important that senators have a chance to ask directly about what the FBI investigated, what evidence they collected and who they interviewed.
Discussions between the FBI and the White House are complicated by a number of factors - the president's long-running distrust of the agency over its Russian Federation probe, the intense criticism by members of Congress of the FBI's handling of politically sensitive investigations, and the added difficulty of conducting an inquiry that could tip the scales in deciding who becomes the next member of the Supreme Court.

Trump added that he felt that the cause would be "a rallying cry" for Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. But the President stressed again that Kavanaugh's life had been all but ruined by allegations he suggested were false.
The New Haven Superior Court confirmed it has no records related to this incident and said the records would have been destroyed per its records "destruction schedule".
Swetnick said in a declaration that Kavanaugh was physically abusive toward girls in high school and was at a house party in 1982 where she says she was the victim of a gang rape. "But we are united, as professors of law and scholars of judicial institutions, in believing that Judge Kavanaugh did not display the impartiality and judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land".
He also again said Senators will vote soon.
"What you'll have at the very end - I'm expecting by about Thursday - they're going to be taking all those reports, making one report, and providing [what's] like an executive summary that's going to summarize the findings", Gomez said. Kavanaugh claimed an allegation that he committed a sexual assault aged 17 was "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" by Democrats.
