Investigation of accusations against the candidate for the post of Supreme court judge Brett Cavanaugh should not take more than a week, said the President of the United States Donald trump.

«I have ordered the FBI to conduct further investigation to study the dossier of judge Cavanaugh. As requested by the Senate, the study should be limited in scope and should be completed in less than one week,» the statement said trump issued the press Secretary of the White house Sarah Sanders.

The white house immediately after the Declaration of the trump issued a review Cavanaugh.

«In this process, I repeatedly questioned by the FBI, I have received several calls directly from the Senate to check my biography, and yesterday I answered questions under oath for each topic on which the senators and their lawyer asked me. I did everything they asked, and will continue to cooperate,» said the judge.

Trump previously brought Cavanaugh to the position of judge of the Supreme court, which traditionally plays a big role in the United States. For his appointment requires the consent of the majority of the 100 senators. The President’s opponents in the Senate made the expected candidates Cavanaugh.

Since then, several women accused the judge of sexual harassment in the 1980-ies. Testimony in the Senate on this issue was given as one of the alleged victims, and Cavanaugh.

In the result, the judicial Committee of the U.S. Senate on Friday endorsed the proposed trump candidate after three weeks of trials because of the charges against him. However, the vote in the General composition of the Senate while pending for investigation.

The balance of forces and tactics

In the Senate the Republicans have a majority that will allow them to push Cavanaugh, provided that their ranks will not find a few people who decide to speak out against. The Democrats in this situation can only resort to the usual technique: delaying the debate preceding the vote. In such cases the senators for a long time and repeatedly made often overlap in the content of speeches. It may be several days delay the process, but it is infinitely impossible to do, and a vote in the end still carried out.

Another option that can postpone the vote is the beginning of the FBI investigation, which in the end was forced to accept the trump.

The Democrats are trying to postpone the vote to hold him in the Congress, scheduled for November 6, the results of which they expect to obtain a majority in both the Senate and the house of representatives.

High stakes

The U.S. Supreme court has nine members and has a significant effect on laws and society in the United States, often putting an end to the political and public debate. Judges of the Supreme court in the United States are appointed for life, so the rate the approval of such candidates is high.

Trump possibility to appoint a judge of the Supreme court had for the second time. If approved, Cavanaugh nominees Republicans will have the majority of votes. And this could theoretically mean that the Republicans are using the Supreme court can affect critically important for American society solutions that will reach this instance.

Cavanaugh’s 53 years old, married and has two daughters. To date he has worked in the US court of appeals for the district of Columbia. Cavanaugh also worked in the administration of President George W. Bush and played a key role in the drafting of the report on the results of the investigation against President bill Clinton. This report became in effect the basis of the impeachment. Cavanaugh was considered a favorite of the legal establishment, but his candidacy is not satisfied with the conservative majority.
