Sexual abuse counsellor raises doubts over Christine Ford's story

On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh. Nope! It was one beer. 'How did you get there?' I don't remember.

Sanders cribbed from Kellyanne Conway's script earlier in the day, insisting "the president was stating fact" though, in fairness, she stopped short of using Conway's gag that Ford has "been treated like a Fabergé egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president". I don't remember. How'd you get there?

"Where's the house? I don't know!"

What neighborhood was it in? I don't know remember. 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' I don't know. On many occasions I heard Brett slur his words and saw him staggering from alcohol consumption, not all of which was beer. "The other problem is for the people that are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, I think it diminishes the real claims". A man who had a brief extramarital affair with Swetnick said that she enjoyed group sex and suffered from psychological issues.

Flake was instrumental in getting Trump last Friday to initiate an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge nominated by the president for a lifetime job on the top USA court.

Kavanaugh and Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, where they answered questions about the allegations.

Additionally, Ford's former partner said that he witnessed her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph test - which, if true, would mean that she lied to prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who asked specifically if the professor had ever "given any tips or advice to anyone who was looking to take a polygraph test". But the memo is clearly aimed at assuaging the concerns of a handful of GOP senators who are on the fence about whether to vote to confirm Kavanaugh and are considering whose story - Ford's or Kavanaugh's - to believe.

Trump initially was deferential to Ford, describing her late last week as a "very fine woman" and a "credible witness".

Ali Campbell, the guy Kavanaugh thought he assaulted.

The investigation is set to last one week as part of a bipartisan agreement reached by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Flake, a 55-year-old lifelong conservative who is retiring from the Senate at the end of the year, has quickly emerged as the centerpiece of a passionate lobbying effort from the right and left.

Sanders, like other White House aides, noted Ford admits she does not recall everything about the alleged sexual assault in the summer of 1982.

"The president's comments were just plain wrong", she said.

Earlier Tuesday, Senate Republicans and Democrats sparred over the ongoing FBI investigation, which is expected to be completed by Friday.

He launched into a hypothetical riff about a young man who got a job at IBM or General Motors but is falsely accused of sexual assault.

Since the Senate hearing, in which Kavanaugh dodged questions about whether he had a drinking problem or ever vomited from drinking too much, news has surfaced of a 1985 bar fight and a 1983 letter in which Kavanaugh called himself and his friends "loud obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us".
