'This woman had no clue': Donald Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accusers

Ford's lawyer, Michael Bromwich, called Trump's attack Tuesday "vicious, vile and soulless".

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

"Although we do not know the status of the investigation, we are not aware of the FBI affirmatively reaching out to any of those witnesses", Clune said.

He accused Democrats of trying to delay the vote for political reasons, to which Minority Leader Chuck Schumer responded, "Gimme a break!".

A remark by President Donald Trump, who nominated Kavanaugh, spotlighted the gulf between #MeToo-era voters who've rallied against sexual abuse and conservatives who say the nominee is entitled to a presumption of innocence against uncorroborated allegations.

The comments by Trump, who has privately boasted about getting away with sexual assault, electrified not just his supporters in the hall - who chanted "We want Kavanaugh!".

He also drew criticism from Democrats earlier on Tuesday by saying the Kavanaugh case showed it was "a very scary time for young men in America" because they might be presumed guilty even when innocent.

Clune said he is concerned that the bureau "is not conducting - or not being permitted to conduct - a serious investigation".

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said after speaking with White House counsel Don McGahn over the weekend he remained "very concerned" the FBI's probe would be too narrow. She said she was able to get away and run into the bathroom after Judge jumped on her and Kavanaugh, knocking them off the bed.

Leland Keyser: The FBI has interviewed Keyser, who Ford also said attended the same party. I don't remember. How many years ago?

"The trauma for a man that's never had any accusation - he's never had a bad statement about him", Trump said, sympathizing with Kavanaugh's experience.

More specifically, he called out the "evil people" against Kavanaugh who are looking to "destroy" him. Trump added of Democrats. "It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman", Trump said.

" Messi sets the standard", Kane said. "As a striker I want to try and match that". Then they played in the World Cup.

He spoke hours after Trump appeared to crack jokes at the expense of Dr Christine Blasey Ford at a rally in Southaven, Miss.

A spokesman for McConnell noted that the agreement with Flake and other swing senators was to have a procedural vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by Friday, so the majority leader would have to take steps to tee up that vote on Wednesday.

He said that Kavanaugh's life was "in tatters" and urged the crowd to think about his family.

President Trump talks to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Tuesday before boarding Marine One for a trip to Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

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. When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense". McConnell has said the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week. Trump has likewise denied the allegations made against him.

"We are still here, still outraged", said Rachel Carmon, chief operation officer of Women's March. "Hell, yes. And they're going to be talking about why their vote matters if they're angry about what happened" during the hearing.

In a statement on Monday, Mark Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, said: "Mr. Judge has been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but his interview has not been completed".

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now".

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a key swing vote on the nomination, believes the scope of the FBI's investigation should include allegations brought by a third accuser, Julie Swetnick, but the senator is deferring to the FBI itself on who should be interviewed, a spokeswoman said.

In a White House press conference overnight, the United States leader sought to excuse excessive drinking by teenagers, while going beyond Mr Kavanaugh's own testimony on his past use of alcohol to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. What do I do Mom?' he said, imagining the panicked son pleading with his mother for advice.
