Republicans deplore Trump mocking Brett Kavanaugh accuser

The Supreme Court began a new term this week without a full bench as it waits on the FBI to investigate sexual abuse allegations against nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I had one beer".

I have been contacted by numerous reporters about Brett Kavanaugh and have not wanted to say anything because I had nothing to contribute about what kind of Justice he would be. Nope! It was one beer. "What do you get out of that?"

But Ford has not heard from the FBI as of Tuesday morning as questions mount about the extent of the agency's investigation, her team said told CNN.

"I don't remember", he replied to himself in the Ford voice.

"The issues of credibility and temperament are not something that happened 30 years ago; they're about Judge Kavanaugh today and how he is as a 53-year-old", Minority Leader Sen. "I don't know", Trump said, flailing his arms around to mock her as he has some of his political foes or journalists during similar events in the past.

What neighborhood was it in? I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don't know, but I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember.

In a separate remarks, the president's son Donald Trump Jr said he was more anxious for his sons than his daughters in the current climate which they see being tilted against men. Jeff Flake, who first forced a second round of hearings with Judge Kavanaugh, then forced a delay in the floor vote to give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a chance to investigate.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said she didn't share Ford's allegations in order to respect Ford's desire to remain anonymous.

Julian Knight, a committee member, said: "It would be helpful to hear from Mr Zuckerberg, but I won't be holding my breath". One Facebook defence at the time was that there was no technical security problem - it was a human error and a lie.

White House: President Trump Didn't Set Limits on FBI Kavanaugh Probe
The president added that he hasn't come up with a backup plan concerning the nomination because he believes he won't need one. In dueling appearances last Thursday, he and Ford told their stories during sworn testimony before the Judiciary Committee .

She identified Ford's case as an example of "he said/she said" and said her case is "even weaker than that".

Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee she was "100 percent certain" it was a drunken Kavanaugh who pinned her down on a bed, groped her, tried to take off her clothes, and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams for help. So far, no Republicans have said they would vote against Kavanaugh.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway also defended the president.

President Trump's mocking remarks come amid a protracted and heated confirmation process for Kavanaugh.

Controversy surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination ahead of November mid-term elections - in which Republicans are facing an uphill battle to keep control of Congress - is threatening to derail Trump's push to get a conservative majority on the Supreme Court before the vote. I don't even know him. When I watched Brett and his wife being interviewed on Fox News on Monday, and when I watched Brett deliver his testimony under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, I cringed.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in an altercation at a bar when he was an undergraduate student at Yale and was accused of throwing ice on another patron, according to a police report obtained by The New York Times.

The father-son attack on women who come forward with charges of sexual misconduct despite the trauma and the public opprobrium it involves enraged liberals who say the remarks showed just exactly why women are reluctant to come forward - rampant mansplaining and misogyny amid misrepresentation of facts.

When Trump ordered the FBI investigation last week under pressure from a handful of Senate Republicans, he set a deadline of this Friday for the probe's completion.
