Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a bar when he was an undergraduate student at Yale and was accused of throwing ice on another patron, according to a police report obtained by The New York Times. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally Tuesday in Southaven. It's where Steve Doocy once told Trump he was glad they were friends, and where Brian Kilmeade remarked that Trump looked very "big" on TV.

China cancels trade talks with US

Chad Ludington, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's, has said Kavanaugh did not tell the truth about his drinking in his testimony Thursday to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Jeff Flake, who first forced a second round of hearings with Judge Kavanaugh, then forced a delay in the floor vote to give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a chance to investigate.
"I don't know what Brett was doing in the melee, but there was blood, there was glass, there was beer and there was some shouting, and then the police showed up", Ludington added. Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it".
Flake, whose reservations about Kavanaugh led to Trump requesting a supplemental background check on his nominee last week, also condemned the President's comments.
Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the confirmation vote will occur once senators of both parties have a chance to review the FBI's conclusions. I don't think that would happen with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seated across the table.
