Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at campaign rally

Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at campaign rally

Republicans have 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation. What's happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice, it really does. "But somebody could accuse you of something, and you're automatically guilty".

"She's always had my back", Trump said.

On Sept. 27, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's testimony placed Mark Judge in the room during the alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh when they were teenagers.

One of Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys criticized President Trump for mocking his client's testimony during a campaign rally Tuesday night.

"What neighborhood was it in?" I don't know. I don't know. I don't know, upstairs, downstairs, where was it? 'I don't remember.' How did you get there?

"We all saw something about Judge Kavanaugh's temperament and character that day that should disqualify him from serving on the Supreme Court of the United States", Hirono said.

The rising frustration came as Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process played out before the country, with him and Ms Ford appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to discuss her accusation.

"I don't think he did", answered the US President. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine. Many also consider the allegations a mere delay tactic by Democrats to delay a vote until after the potential "blue wave" in the November election which could give the current minority party control of the House and Senate.

Senator McConnell said a vote would happen on Mr Kavanaugh's nomination by the end of the week. Republicans hold a 51-49 seat advantage in the chamber.

What will happen to the Federal Bureau of Investigation report? "'I had one beer, '" Trump began.

Chad Ludington said that in one instance, Kavanaugh started a bar fight that ended with one of their mutual friends landing in jail.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said Friday would be too soon.

He called Democrats who are against Kavanaugh "evil people" who want to "destroy people".

"I come home to a husband who is not very happy about how his reputation is being sullied with lies", she said. Judge has previously denied any memory of any such incident.

He said he hopes McCaskill will join in the call for an independent investigation.

Asked about reports that the third Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick, is not being interviewed by the FBI, Trump said it "wouldn't bother me at all" if she was interviewed. They include notes from therapy sessions and video or audio recordings of a polygraph test she took.

John Clune said Ms Ramirez was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sunday and provided agents with the witnesses' contact numbers.
