Republicans deplore Trump mocking Brett Kavanaugh accuser

Brett Kavanaugh the Supreme Court nominee during his heated testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee

"I have NEVER had Christine Blasey Ford, or anybody else, prepare me, or provide any other type of assistance whatsoever in connection with any polygraph exam I have taken at anytime", McClean said.

The footage angered netizens as the president's stance on Ford's testimony was contradictory to his assessment last week, when he claimed her testimony "was very compelling".

"The tactic of the president laying low has been lauded by all sides", said Brian Kilmeade, a host of Trump's preferred morning show Fox & Friends. That's a very, very hard standard. And Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the committee's top Democrat, also stressed that the report can't be released and added: "I don't know what's going to be in it".

Flake and Sens. Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska were instrumental last week in holding up Kavanaugh's confirmation vote.

After Ford's testimony last week, Trump had called her a "very credible witness". "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said outside the White House.

The idea that people in the US are wrongfully "guilty until proven innocent" is an idea that wasn't manifesting itself politically on the right until last week, GOP pollster Frank Luntz told The Washington Post.

On Twitter, Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford, called Trump's remarks "a vicious, vile and soulless attack".

The findings in the highly anticipated report will help determine whether Kavanaugh, who is facing accusations of sexual misconduct that he has vehemently denied, will be able to lock down the minimum 50 votes in the Senate to be confirmed to the Supreme Court.

"My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent".

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the confirmation vote will occur once senators of both parties have a chance to review the FBI's conclusions.

Global Power Politics Affect Afghanistan, Pakistan: Qureshi
But soon after, Pakistan sponsored terrorists attacked our Air Force base in Pathankot on 2nd January (2016). Ms Swaraj had lashed out at Pakistan for "harbouring terrorists" and "masking malevolence with duplicity".

"And then he cried when they caught him, he cried like a baby".

At a political rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford's testimony about the alleged assault in Maryland in 1982 when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17. 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it? Kavanaugh angrily denied the charges hours later and accused Democrats of orchestrating a "political hit" against him. But NPR obtained a four-page affidavit from Hill in which she alleged years of harassment by Thomas and published the information, forcing the committee to hold an extraordinary second round of hearings to address those accusations.

"I don't know how she knew she had one beer", he said. "I don't know. I don't know". Ford has alleged that Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her.

"She's always had my back", Trump said.

Separately, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told reporters, "The president's comments were just plain wrong".

Trump's comments at Tuesday night's rally prompted a debate that played out on cable television over whether he had hurt the chances of his nominee.

"I could tell you things about everyone one of them". "Like a baby", Trump said.

The White House agreed on Monday to let the Federal Bureau of Investigation question more people in connection with the allegations that Kavanaugh was sexually abusive toward women following growing criticism that the probe was too constrained.

Senator Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from CT, said: "This vile, mocking attack on a credible, immensely powerfully eloquent survivor of sexual assault is a mark of disrespect and disregard not only for Dr Blasey Ford but the entire survivor community".

"The mudslide was cheered on and capitalized on at every turn by the far left that has been so eager to stop this nomination", he said.
