'I had one beer, right?': Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accuser's testimony

'I had one beer, right?': Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accuser's testimony

Ford testified last Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

"'I don't know. I don't know.' 'Upstairs?"

Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him, but the president also said "speed" was important in the process.

President Trump continued his defense Tuesday of his Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, mocking one of Kavanaugh's accusers at a MS campaign rally. "If we took 10 years, they'd want more time", he groused.

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

According to a New York Times report, Brett Kavanaugh, coming from a UB40 concert, got into an altercation after mistaking a man for the lead singer of the band.

The FBI investigation was launched at the urging of Republican Senators Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. The Washington-based conservative group, among the staunchest advocates for Kavanaugh's confirmation, said Tuesday it would spend $400,000 on a new ad.

Barbara Van Gelder, Judge's lawyer, confirmed the interview had been completed but declined to say exactly when it ended or what Judge was asked.

They said they have "repeatedly asked you to identify the Supervisory Special Agent responsible for this investigation, so that we could contact him or her directly". And I think the country needs to be behind it and we need a more bipartisan process. Investigators have already interviewed several people at the core of the allegations, including one of Kavanaugh's own accusers and personal friends from his time in high school and college. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said.

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

President Donald Trump speaks at a news conference on trade among the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, in the Rose Garden of the White House, Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Washington.


The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination has been unusually emotional and has unfolded just weeks ahead of November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Republicans. A fuming Kavanaugh sparred frequently with Democrats, responding to a question by one about whether he'd ever blacked out while drinking by shooting back, "Have you?" McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week.

Schumer said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his confirmation.

Trump said a vote for Espy is a vote for the Democrat agenda for 'open borders and radical socialism'.

"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks", Flake said.

"They seriously call into question his character and morality", the letter reads, "and should disqualify him from a lifetime appointment as a Supreme Court Justice" and a Harvard Law School lecturer.

Kavanaugh denies any wrongdoing.

"This woman had no clue what was going on, and yet she made the most awful charges", Trump said, pointing out that Kavanaugh went to Yale as apparent evidence that the claims were spurious.

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.

Patrick "PJ" Smyth: Eric Bruce, the attorney for Smyth, said his client has "fully cooperated" with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and answered "every question" asked of him.

Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker, former chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said that the debate over Kavanaugh is energizing voters in both parties.

Avenatti, who has said he is considering a Democratic run for the presidency in 2020, is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who was paid to remain silent about an alleged affair with Trump.
