‘Kind of appalling’: Republican senators criticize Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford

Outpouring of anger on Twitter after Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser

The FBI has finished interviewing Mark Judge, a friend of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was said to have attended a high school party in the early 1980s where a woman says she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh, Judge's lawyer said Tuesday.

"When did he say she was not credible?"

They said the agency had not responded to the offer to interview Prof Ford, or "a series of emails and letters in which we identified witnesses and evidence that would likely assist the FBI".

Chants of "we want Kavanaugh" also echoed through the venue in MS as the president backed his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual assault allegations.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, said a Friday vote would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Flake was instrumental in initiating an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge nominated by Trump for a lifetime job on the top USA court.

The president said accusations against Kavanaugh have ruined the judge's life and his accusers share the blame with Democratic members of the Senate. They plan a Senate vote on him later this week.

Indeed, a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday found a gaping gender gap when it comes to support for Kavanaugh's nomination.

Cardi B turns herself in to police over nasty strip club brawl
This comes after rapper Nicki Minaj last month , said she was left "mortified" after being involved in a scuffle with Cardi B . Jeff Kern, a representative for the 25-year-old rapper, said she received a court summons charging "misdemeanors only".

"The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close", he said. Jeff Flake of Arizona said.

"[Democrats] will not be satisfied unless they have brought down Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", McConnell said.

What is the FBI investigating?

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.

"A man's life is shattered", he said of Kavanaugh after making fun of Ford's testimony.

"We are finally rebuilding our country, and we are doing it with American aluminum, American steel and with our great electrical contractors", he said.

The FBI is nearing completion of its expanded investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanagh.

"I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember", Trump said.

Lindsey Graham: I will be in the National Basketball Association before Kavanaugh is convicted
In his five-minute speech to Kavanaugh, Graham called the accusations against the nominee "a sham" put on by the Democratic Party. The senator has said she didn't take it to her colleagues because of Ford's request for confidentiality.

Trump, who was himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, tried to link the allegations against Kavanaugh to what he said was a broader problem. I don't remember. How many years ago? Kavanaugh denies that as well. 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.

In particular, Democrats have homed in on his contention that the allegations against him are an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?"

Kavanaugh's repeated references to liking beer - and initial attempts to avoid answering a question on whether he had ever blacked out from alcohol use - have been the subject of parody, including a skit on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Kavanaugh testified he has never assaulted anyone.

Espy, if elected, would become the first black senator to represent MS since shortly after the Civil War. Collins has criticized Trump at times as well but not as often as Flake. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., "Have you?"

"They destroy people", he said, referring to Democrats.

The FBI has finished an interview with Chris Garrett, a high school friend of Kavanaugh. So we gotta let it play out but I wanna tell you, he is a fine, fine person. "I think that's the height of hypocrisy".
