Attorney fires back at Trump for mocking Ford during rally

Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn, Trump also drew a line on lying to Congress.

"I watched him. I was surprised at how vocal he was about he fact that he likes beer ..."

Ugh. His logic is utterly demeaning to the victims of sexual misconduct, but it's exactly the type of narrow-minded garbage we'd expect from the man who was accused of sexual assault and still became president.

One of Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys criticized President Trump for mocking his client's testimony during a campaign rally Tuesday night.

But the undecided senators - Flake, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, all Republicans; and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, both Democrats - are keeping an open mind.

"He has served on the bench for some time now", McCaskill said. "It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman", Trump said.

Under pressure from moderate fellow Republicans, Trump on Friday ordered an FBI investigation lasting up to a week into the allegations against his nominee.

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top USA court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said that when Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he abandoned any pretense of being an impartial jurist and revealed that he bears "bitter partisan resentments".

She said in a statement that while the accusations the judge faces are "troubling", her decision to vote against his confirmation has to do with "his allegiance to the position that unlimited donations and dark anonymous money, from even foreign interests, should be allowed to swamp the voices of individuals". Ford, a California college professor, was not questioned as part of a criminal proceeding but in the confirmation process.

Some ‘care more than others’ about Man Utd crisis - Mourinho
According to The Sun , Mourinho now has just a week to show the United hierarchy that he is the right man for the job. However, Shaw said the responsibility lies with the players.

Mr Kavanaugh has denied Ms Ford's allegations.

The person familiar with Ramirez's questioning, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said she also provided investigators with the names of others who she said could corroborate her account.

The Times said the Federal Bureau of Investigation already had interviewed four witnesses the White House and Senate Republicans approved for questioning - Kavanaugh's friends Mark Judge and P.J. Smith; Ford's friend Leland Keyser; and Deborah Ramirez, who also has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Collins had asked if Trump would have concerns about Kavanaugh if he lied about his drinking habits in testimony before the Senate. "When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive", Ludington said. "And a man's life is in tatters", Trump said.

The president's advisers and his Republican allies in the Senate have implored him to restrain himself in the fight to salvage Kavanaugh's nomination, and for the most part, he has kept to defending the nominee while avoiding comment on Blasey.

The chairman of the committee, Sen.

President Trump reiterated his support for Mr Kavanaugh on Tuesday, saying he believed the Senate would approve the judge. "And that should be the scope of it", Graham said on ABC's "This Week". She was questioned for more than two hours on Sunday and provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation with a list of over 20 possible witnesses, the person said.

A defiant Kavanaugh came out with guns blazing, insisting the assault never happened, accusing Democrats of destroying his reputation and condemning his confirmation battle as a "national disgrace".

Republicans have 51 seats in the closely divided 100-member Senate and can not afford to lose more than one vote on confirmation.

Outrageous, right? Let's not forget that Donald Trump was accused of sexual misconduct by 22 women! Judge has previously denied any memory of any such incident.

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