In angry and defiant testimony before the Senate, Kavanaugh denied Ford's accusation, as well as allegations by two other women of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
He called Democrats who are against Kavanaugh "evil people" who want to "destroy people".
"It's a damn sad situation", Mr. Trump said in Southaven, Miss. But I had one beer.
"[Democrats] will not be satisfied unless they have brought down Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said. The poll was conducted September 26-27, one week after McCaskill made the decision to vote against Kavanaugh's nomination. "This is a very, very - this is a very hard time".
Some Republicans and White House allies have suggested the allegations against Kavanaugh can be potent political fodder in the run-up to November 6, animating GOP voters who have so far lacked the same motivation to head to the polls as their Democratic counterparts.
Ever since his brother's warning, Trump said, he has abstained from drinking and smoking because he had "somebody that guided me" in that aspect of life. Fortunately, Graham does not think that scenario will play out, and suggested that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not discover anything to dissuade Sens.
"I learned because of Fred", Trump said.
Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing.
Trump meanwhile said the White House would not restrict the new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, requested by senators before they take a final vote on Kavanaugh.
Earl Thomas Broke His Leg and Maybe the Entire NFL
Despite the missed practices, Thomas has been productive, notching three interceptions in as many games before Sunday. Thomas was playing for Seattle despite a contract dispute over the final year of his contract with the Seahawks.
Donald Trump was bitching about due process Tuesday, but just hours later made a mockery of his FBI investigation by essentially calling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford a fraud. Ford, a California college professor, was not questioned as part of a criminal proceeding but in the confirmation process. "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them". Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations against him.
Kathryn Mayorga filed a lawsuit last week against the Portuguese athlete, saying Ronaldo coerced her into signing a settlement and nondisclosure agreement about an alleged sexual assault in 2009, reports CNN.
Chad Ludington, who attended Yale with Kavanaugh and now teaches history at North Carolina State University, described the young Kavanaugh as a "frequent drinker, and a heavy drinker" who often became belligerent while drunk. "When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", Ludington said. Many also consider the allegations a mere delay tactic by Democrats to delay a vote until after the potential "blue wave" in the November election which could give the current minority party control of the House and Senate.
Another committee member, Sen.
President Trump on Tuesday sharply mocked the woman whose allegation of sexual assault has upended his effort to install a second justice on the Supreme Court, escalating a battle that has already polarized Washington and the country. "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said on ABC's "This Week".
The ridicule of Blasey cut against the grain of the Republican strategy until that point of trying to gingerly question her account without seeming to attack her. Senate Republicans have emphasized their respect for Blasey and have praised her bravery in coming forward even as they accepted Kavanaugh's adamant denials.
Outrageous, right? Let's not forget that Donald Trump was accused of sexual misconduct by 22 women!
