Kavanaugh accuser's call for FBI inquiry before testimony is dismissed

Kavanaugh accuser's call for FBI inquiry before testimony is dismissedSupreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, wants the FBI to investigate her allegation as a “first step� before she testifies in front of the Senate judiciary committee – a demand Republicans appear unwilling to meet. In a letter to the committee on Tuesday night, Ford’s attorneys in effect eliminated the possibility that she will appear at a high-stakes public hearing scheduled for Monday that will likely determine the fate of Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Manafort trial – live updates: Witness testimony resumes after mystery over Judge TS Ellis' call for surprise three-hour recess

Manafort trial - live updates: Witness testimony resumes after mystery over Judge TS Ellis' call for surprise three-hour recessThe trial of Paul Manafort, former chairman of the Donald Trump campaign, resumes once more today in Virginia. The case, now entering its ninth day, is the first to result from charges brought by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into possible Russian election meddling. Mr Manafort, who stepped down from the Trump team in August 2016 after being accused of receiving $12m off the books to promote Ukraine’s pro-Russia president Viktor Yanukovych (prior to his being forced out of Kiev by revolution), was indicted on 12 counts in October 2017, rising to 32 in February.
