President Donald Trump for the first time directly mocked Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by casting doubt on her testimony during a campaign rally. Ford claims Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted her while they were at a party during their high school years, and has said Judge was also in the room. Asked whether he was more anxious about his sons or daughters, Trump Jr. said, "Right now, I'd say my sons". "Do you know how bad a fight has to be for the police to get called on a white guy at an Ivy League school in the '80s?!?"
"My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent". I don't remember. Where was the place?
Judge has written several books, including one titled "Wasted: Tales of a Gen X Drunk", and another titled "God and Man at Georgetown Prep: How I Became a Catholic Despite 20 Years of Catholic Schooling".
" 'What neighborhood was it in?' 'I don't know.' 'Where's the house?' 'I don't know.' 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' 'I don't know".
Kavanaugh, U.S. President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court is under investigation by the FBI for allegations of sexual misconduct when he was in high school and college.
Swetnick did not identify Kavanaugh or Judge as one of her attackers.
Democrats are trying to flip at least two Republicans into the No column, presuming all of their members vote against the Federal Court judge's confirmation. 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. "We request your patience as the FBI completes its investigation".
What she has said: "It is important to have a fair process for the sake of both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, as well as the integrity of both the judicial branch and the Senate confirmation process". Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it". In order for Republicans to confirm Kavanaugh without any Democratic support, they can only afford to lose one of these senators.
Writing to the FBI, attorneys for Professor Christine Blasey Ford said it was "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a thorough investigation without interviewing her.
In a letter Tuesday night, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee pressed Ford to turn over more information to support her claim and accused her lawyers of "withholding material evidence." Sen.
"If a woman ever behaved that way - to me it was behavior that was not suitable for a person who would be a judge on any court, much less the Supreme Court of the United States", she said.
Chad Ludington, another Yale classmate, told The New York Times the altercation happened while they were drinking at a bar after a concert. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said outside the White House before leaving on a visit to Philadelphia.
Trump expanded on the subject of the allegations against Kavanaugh by saying that the men of the nation are now under constant threat of false accusations.
Trump's comments on Tuesday were just the latest instance of the President expressing concern about the public outcry resulting from the allegations against Kavanaugh and the impact on other men. After meeting with Kavanaugh, Collins said she was satisfied with his answers and did not think he would overturn Roe.
"It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump said.
Trump said that the Democrats opposed to Kavanaugh's nomination are "evil people" who are out to 'destroy people'.
Ford told the senate she was "100%" certain that he was her attacker.
In testimony last Thursday, Ford described attending a house party in the Washington DC suburbs in the early 1980s at which she was pushed into a bedroom where a drunken Kavanaugh held her down, groped her, tried to strip her and left her fearing for her life.
