Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at MS rally

And while Trump has called Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to Congress that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school, "credible" and "compelling", he has continued to support Kavanaugh's confirmation and emphatically defend his character. Now, I know some of you are going to say, 'I did look it up, and that's not true.' That's 'cause you looked it up in a book. The bureau expects to wrap up its investigation by Friday.

Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of pinning her down and trying to remove her clothing at a high school party 36 years ago.

Attorneys for Ford consequently sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and FBI General Counsel Dana Boente on Tuesday, which said that although Ford had pledged her cooperation wth the investigation after President Donald Trump authorized it on Friday, the organization has not responded to their inquiries and has not identified the agents responsible for conducting the inquiry. The official revealed the private conversations only on condition of anonymity. "You could be flawless your whole life and then someone comes around and accuses you.Now, you're guilty until proven innocent", Trump said.

"I do think it brings up what's at stake in this election", Wicker said.

Mr. McConnell said Republican senators aren't victims, but said the confrontations won't change votes. The three-decade-old accusation facing Brett Kavanaugh is not only false, they argue, but an example of the #MeToo movement gone too far in its call to believe the women - and not the men.

Republicans argue the Kavanaugh debate will drive enthusiasm among men and women.

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark. They include notes from therapy sessions and video or audio recordings of a polygraph test she took. He has previously said he doesn't recall the events recounted by Ford.

"And a man's life is in tatters", Trump added.

A representative of Ford's legal team had no immediate comment.

US President Donald Trump mocked the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, one of the women who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House.

She did not answer questions as to whether they would affect her vote for Kavanaugh before ducking into a committee hearing. She also said on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee that she was unsure if she actually ever showed these therapist's notes to The Washington Post or if she merely summarized what the notes allegedly said. Smyth and Leland Keyser.

He said that soon after the revelation of a letter by Ford asserting that Kavanaugh abused her at a high school gathering in Maryland, "The floodgates of mud and muck opened entirely on Brett Kavanaugh and his family". McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.

Chad Ludington, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, said in a media statement the judge was not truthful during his Senate testimony last week about his drinking and that Kavanaugh was "a frequent drinker and a heavy drinker" at Yale who often got belligerent and aggressive when drunk.

Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also blasted Trump for the comments saying he owes Ford an immediate apology.

At the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans accused Democrats of doing everything in their power to delay a confirmation vote.
