Trump Mocks Kavanaugh Accuser at Campaign Rally

Wayne CurryOct 04, 2018

"That issue supersedes all the others", Schumer said Tuesday.

Ludington said Kavanaugh was trying to figure out whether a man at the bar was UB40 lead singer Campbell, who would have been coming from the concert and in his 20s at the time. "What's happening here has much more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice".

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark.

Flake, who pushed for a delay for the FBI to investigate the assault allegations, said he was keeping an open mind on the nomination.

Democrats offered harsher assessments. Part of Bloomberg's motivation, an aide said, is the potential political fallout from the Kavanaugh hearing last week. She argued that yelling and crying by a woman would be viewed far differently. Underscoring the GOP effort to vote on Kavanaugh quickly - and stuff a cork on the chances for fresh allegations to emerge - he said "it shouldn't take long" for lawmakers to read that report.

And Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., referenced the over-the-top lampooning of Kavanaugh's hearing performance by actor Matt Damon in a "Saturday Night Live" sketch last weekend. "And when I see what's going on right now, it's scary". "It does not reflect a judicial temperament".

The president, who days ago said Ford's testimony was "very credible", ridiculed her memory to cheers in the audience, suggesting certain details she didn't recall were evidence that she wasn't telling the truth.

Alaska's governor and lieutenant governor, both independents, oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation, which could give her added cover as well.

Speaking on the Senate floor on Wednesday, McConnell again took aim at Kavanaugh opponents.

The president told reporters on Monday: "The FBI should interview anybody that they want within reason, but you have to say within reason". He said the one thing he wanted was speed, because drawing the probe out was "unfair" to Kavanaugh's family.

"I think they're playing a unsafe game with this overt play to generate enthusiasm from their white, male base".

"Hopefully, as Mitch said, they'll have a vote by the end of the week, and it'll be a positive vote".

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now". But the White House released statements from two other Yale classmates Monday who said they never saw Kavanaugh black out or treat women with disrespect.

The first half we were a little nervous. "It is clear also that we are improving in getting more competitive in the hard moments". Lacazette should have opened the scoring when he seized on Cathcart's cumbersome attempt to turn and raced clear on goal .

"I wish he hadn't done it".

Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also blasted Trump for the comments saying he owes Ford an immediate apology. She said she broke free when Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped on them and sent them tumbling off the bed.

"A man's life is shattered", the POTUS said of Kavanaugh, ho had denied all allegations.

Flake said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had completed interviews with four people.

On Monday nine of the 10 Democrat Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray with a list of 24 people they believe should be interviewed.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fueled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.

Swetnick has not. She alleged in an affivadit that Kavanaugh engaged in "abusive and physically aggressive behaviour towards girls" at parties in Maryland in the early 1980s.

During his remarks, McConnell dowplayed those allegations.

He also touched on the allegations brought forward by "sleazebag" lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Trump said the Democrats are too "dangerous" to trust with power and urged his supporters to get out and vote Republican.

Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man in 1985.

McConnell said a "mudslide" has emerged since Ford's allegations first became public.
