Kavanaugh Prosecutor wants FBI probe, before you testified

President Trump said on Wednesday he would make “a decision” about the future of the Board the nomination Kavanaugh to the Supreme court, when Prosecutor Christine Blasey Ford is “credible testimony” about her accusation.
In front of journalists in front of the White house, the President said that, if Ford were to appear before the Committee “and makes a credible point that is very interesting and we will have to make a decision.”
“If she shows up, that would be wonderful,” said Trump. “If you don’t show up, that would be unfortunate.”
However, it is not clear whether the California professor who claimed that Kavanaugh been sexually abused, more than 35 years ago will finally accept the invitation, to testify on Capitol Hill, right in the middle of a cul-de-SAC with the Republicans, you have been invited to in detail on their claims on Monday.
It comes as a growing number of Republican senators say it is time to move forward to a vote, if Ford were to show up for the scheduled hearing. Ford says that you want to appear, until after an FBI investigation, something that law enforcement sources say, Fox News is not happening.
“If we don’t hear from both sides on Monday, let’s have a vote,” sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., tweeted.
After learning of the allegation, Chairman @Chuck Grassley took immediate action to ensure that Dr. Ford and judge Kavanaugh will have the opportunity to be heard, in public or in private. Republicans hand extended in good faith. If we do not hear from both sides on Monday, let’s take a vote.

“It is to be taken votes essential, the judiciary Committee forward to the Kavanaugh nomination, and a Committee, as quickly as possible,” he said.
Arizona Republican sen. Jeff Flake, the previously named, for Ford, to testify prior to the vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, has indicated he is ready to move forward, if you show it.
“I think we need to move to the markup,” said Flake CNN.
Trump said on Wednesday he wants to move to the Senate, quickly, an expression of sympathy for Kavanaugh and says he has a “spotless record.”
“This is a very difficult thing for him and his family, and we want to get it over,” the President said.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for George W. Bush, said the former President still stands by his support for Kavanaugh, who was in his White house.
“Laura and I have known and respected Brett Kavanaugh for decades, and we stand by our comments on the appointed night judge Kavanaugh: ‘He is a good husband, father and friend and a man of the highest integrity. He will be an excellent Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, “” said Bush.
Late Tuesday, Kavanaugh’s Prosecutor called for a “full investigation” by the FBI before they visited all of the congressional hearing or “interrogation” in their accusations.
In response, judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has said, Ford is still to be invited to speak to the Committee, that “nothing that the FBI or other investigators would not have any impact on what Dr. Ford directs the Committee, so there is no reason for further delay.”
The Republicans had always invited back, Ford and Kavanaugh to testify in the next week, after the delay of a scheduled judiciary Committee vote, scheduled for Thursday. Kavanaugh, the Committee accepted the invitation, but Ford remained quiet until Tuesday evening.
LIZ PEEK: THE KAVANAUGH-CONTROVERSY IS SERIOUS, AND THE GOP NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION
A Federal law enforcement official, Fox News, Ford said, insisting on an FBI probe is “completely inappropriate.”
“It is completely the request is inappropriate for someone to, which we use to investigate law enforcement resources, a 35-year-old claim that if you don’t remember under oath and can me, important details, including when or where it happened,” the official said.
A high-placed law enforcement source also said there is a FBI investigation, because there are no allegations of a Federal crime was committed. The office has already carried out a background investigation.
“This is a political issue, not a criminal prosecution,” the law enforcement source said.
The demand for an FBI investigation was also sure that it claims fuel Republican allegations that the — one of which is known, ranking right Committee, Democrat Dianne Feinstein in July, but revealed to the Federal authorities just last Thursday-are part of a concerted effort to stall Kavanaugh nomination in the last minute.
To wrote “during Dr. Ford’s life was turned on its head, you and your staff are planned to testify a public hearing for you, at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. senators in the national television to experience this traumatic and shocking incident,” Ford Grassley, the lawyers.
But Republicans denied to the Judiciary Committee directly, say, Tuesday night, write in an opinion that Ford had offered to testify a chance, confidential, and had never been told, she would have to sit in the vicinity of Kavanaugh.

In the letter, Ford’s lawyers went on to claim that the Ford family “was resettlement, forced from their home” and “your E-Mail has been hacked, and it was impersonated online.”
The document concluded: “We would welcome the opportunity to speak to them and Ranking member Feinstein to discuss appropriate steps, such as Dr. Ford can work together, while also caring for their own health and safety.”
The justice Committee statement on Tuesday evening condemned all threats against Ford, but maintained their request for an FBI probe unfounded.
“The FBI has informed that the Committee and in public statements, that he is completed the view of the matter,” Grassley and other top-wrote a Republican. “The FBI has no credibility determinations. The FBI provides information on a confidential basis, to determine for the decision-makers, a individual aptitude. The Senate has the information it needs to follow-up with witnesses, and collect and assess the relevant evidence.”
The Republicans also disputed the proposal is not, in Ford’s letter, the Committee was responsive: “Contrary to the suggestions of Dr. Ford’s lawyers, the Committee has no plans to place Dr. Ford and judge Kavanaugh had on a panel, and never indicated plans to do so. Grassley staff offered to Dr. Ford several dates, as well as a selection of the provision of information in a public or private environment.”
Meanwhile, Feinstein and the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s statements backing Ford released.
“We should be said to honor Dr. Blasey Ford’s wishes and delay this hearing,” Feinstein. “A proper study needs to be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all the pages spoken. Only then the Chairman should set a hearing date.”
Feinstein had told Fox News earlier on Tuesday that they could not be sure Ford was the truth.
“It is said a woman deeply affected by this,” Feinstein. “Well, I can’t say that everything is true. I don’t know.”
In a separate statement, Schumer said the FBI probe would be to add in accordance with “precedent” cases,” said Dr. Ford’s call to investigate for the FBI… shows their confidence that, if all facts that an examination by an impartial investigation, your account will be further substantiated and confirmed.”
