Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge interviewed by Federal Bureau of Investigation, lawyer reveals

"In recent days I have become deeply troubled by what has been a blatant mischaracterization by Brett himself of his drinking at Yale", Ludington wrote.

U.S. reports also say former classmates of the judge's who have stressed his heavy college drinking are not on the witness list.

Asked who he is "scared most for" - his sons or his daughters - Trump Jr. said, "right now, I'd say my sons". Ramirez has separately accused Kavanaugh in a report from The New Yorker of inappropriate sexual behavior related to his time at Yale. "And we're letting the Senate continue to dictate what the terms look like".

Senate Republicans discussed the contours of the investigation with the White House late Friday, according to a person familiar with the call who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway delivered a similar message Sunday, repeating that the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition".

Despite this, NBC news quoted a White House official as saying restrictions remained in place, adding that as the FBI is carrying out a background - not a criminal - investigation, the White House decides the parameters of the probe.

The FBI conducts background checks for federal nominees, but the agency does not make judgments on the credibility or significance of allegations.

Avenatti also represents Stormy Daniels, an adult film star who has alleged she had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump back in 2006.

She alleges that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the early 1980s when they were both students at Yale.

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 year for sexual assault
Montgomery Count District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the idea that Cosby's age and failing health entitled him to mercy. Cosby was convicted in April of knocking Constand out with pills and molesting her at his suburban Philadelphia home.

President Trump has deferred to the Senate Judiciary Committee during Kavanaugh's confirmation process - particularly regarding the allegations of sexual misconduct.

"I don't want to talk about plan B", said Trump, whose comments came as a new Supreme Court session began with eight justices on Monday.

Mr Kavanaugh denied her allegation, as well as accusations made by two other women, and accused Democrats of making him the victim of a political "hit".

Questions about the scope of the FBI investigation emerged over the weekend amid reports that Senate Republicans were working with the White House to contain the number of witnesses and the allegations to be investigated. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) did not inspire confidence Monday when he carped about "endless delay and obstruction" and vowed a vote this week, apparently without regard to the status of the FBI investigation.

Durbin was among the Senate Democrats pushing aggressively for an investigation at a high-wattage Judiciary Committee hearing last week with Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford. Given Mr. Kavanaugh's protestations of innocence, he ought to agree.

Separately, the Senate Judiciary Committee made public late on Sunday a previously unreleased interview with Kavanaugh from September 26, before a public hearing with Ford, in which he denied all the allegations against him and committee Democrats declined to ask questions, saying they felt the FBI should investigate the allegations. During the rounds of questioning by senators and a hired prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, Kavanaugh was dogged in his attempts to dismantle the image of him as an aggressive, frequent drinker who would often consume alcohol to the point of blacking out.

Judge Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge has been interviewed by agents.

Speaking at the White House at an event to tout a revised North American Free Trade Agreement, the president said he wants the bureau to complete the probe, prompted by demands from key Senate Republicans last week, because of Kavanaugh's wife and daughters.

Kavanaugh's second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, has been interviewed by the FBI, Coons said.
