Kavanaugh has denied Ford's allegations and has since been confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said she would like to reopen the investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh if Democrats win the Senate.

The 39th president called Kavanaugh's confirmation to the highest court in the land "a very serious mistake" while speaking to a civil rights class, The Emory Wheel first reported.

Amendment 2, which will be on West Virginia ballots on November 6, would provide constitutional authorization for the Legislature to reduce the budget of the state judiciary by up to 15 percent.

When pressed on that claim, the president said, "You know what?"

The letter from Democratic lawmakers on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform says Trump's direct involvement presents a brazen conflict of interest.

Democrats have distanced themselves from some of the more fiery rhetoric from their side of the aisle, including former Attorney General Eric Holder's suggestion that Democrats should "kick" back. Maryland and Virginia had both vied to be the new site.




According to Silver's project, it's far more likely that Republicans with retain power in the Senate, with FiveThirtyEight putting those odds as seven-in-nine, or 77.7 percent likelihood of no change in majority.

There, Republicans now hold 51 seats, meaning Democrats would need to pick up two seats to gain control, and 18 total to reach a two-thirds majority. But White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Thursday that the Democrats' assertions are wrong.

The Democrats, members of House of Representatives investigative panels, said that years ago, before he became president, Trump expressed interest in the Federal Bureau of Investigation moving out of its current headquarters so he could buy the land and redevelop the property.

"Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort", said her lawyer, Debra Katz, earlier this month. He said Kavanaugh had been found "innocent" of the charges against him, even though the senators came to no such determination.

"I wish I were making this up", Arroyo said of the event.

"I absolutely believe that we're going to continue to pursue this issue and get to the bottom of how this decision was made and hopefully reverse it", Connolly said.

She continued: 'It is not my responsibility to determine whether Mr. Kavanaugh deserves to sit on the Supreme Court.
