Crowd laughs as Trump mocks Ford's sexual assault testimony

03 Octobre 2018

He says it's important that senators have a chance to ask directly about what the FBI investigated, what evidence they collected and who they interviewed.

U.S. President Donald Trump ignited a crowd at a campaign rally in MS by mocking a woman who has claimed she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh decades ago. He said she was cooperating with the investigation.

Leaning: Flake said Friday morning that he would vote yes, only to say hours later that he would withhold his support until the Federal Bureau of Investigation gets a week to investigate.

"Despite these efforts, we have received no response from anyone involved in this investigation, and no response to our offer for Dr. Ford to be interviewed", the lawyers wrote.

The FBI is investigating, lawmakers are sniping and the nation is watching.

Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) that there would be a brief FBI investigation to look into Ford and other women's sexual misconduct claims.

"Americans have good reason to doubt this man's credibility".

Schumer made his request in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

GOP leaders say their patience is running out.

"I didn't get the sense that this person even knew what the Kavanaugh case was about", said Oh, an emergency room doctor in California.

"This country is being ripped apart here and we've got to make sure that we do due diligence", Flake said.

Hartman said Tuesday that there is no supplemental report on the alleged 1985 incident, adding that it occurred at "a local bar that no longer exists, and unfortunately everyone who was involved from the police end has retired decades ago".

Mr Judge's interview started but "has not been completed", his attorney said in a statement quoted by Fox News.

Late last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard from both Kavanaugh, and Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her down on a bed and groped her against her will at a high school gathering in 1982.

Mitchell, who was hired by the Senate Judiciary Committee to assist Republicans, addressed the letter to "All Republican Senators", and said no senator approved the memo.

"The career public servants and professionals at the FBI know what they're doing and how best to conduct a background investigation", the Iowa Republican said. Charles "Chad" Ludington, who said he was a friend of Kavanaugh's at Yale University and now teaches at North Carolina State University, called Kavanaugh "a frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker".

At a press conference in NY last Wednesday, Trump suggested he sided with Kavanaugh because so many false claims had been made of him as a celebrity playboy.

Judge has said that he has no memory of the alleged incident and never saw Kavanaugh behave like that.

A 1985 altercation in a CT bar that allegedly involved Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh led to the arrest of one of his close friends at Yale, a copy of an unredacted police report on the incident provided to CNN Tuesday shows.

Susan Collins, another undecided Republican, was riding with Murkowski on an underground Senate train. Ludington said Kavanaugh cursed at the man, and that Kavanaugh's friend, basketball player Chris Dudley, threw a glass in the face of the guy they thought was Campbell.

At the MS rally, where Trump was promoting the candidacy of Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, Trump also turned his ire toward Julie Swetnick, who claims Kavanaugh took part in efforts at parties during high school to get girls intoxicated so that groups of boys could have sex with them.

"It's like a rallying cry for the Republicans". McConnell says accusations against Kavanaugh of sexual abuse in the 1980s have been uncorroborated and are unbelievable.
