GOP Sen. Jeff Flake criticizes Trump's 'appalling' mockery of Christine Blasey Ford

US President Donald Trump has said he wants the FBI to conduct a comprehensive investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, but that he did not want to see a "witch hunt".

Kilmeade meant a political rally Trump spoke at the previous evening, amid the latest public crisis to engulf his administration: a string of sexual accusations against the president's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. The Senate's Republican leaders are planning a vote on Kavanaugh this week.

Christine Blasey Ford during a campaign rally in MS, just days after calling her a "very credible witness".

Ford said Kavanaugh tried to remove her clothes and held his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" I don't know. I don't know. I know, because, especially in our first two years of college, I often drank with him.

"I don't have any problem stating facts, no", Sanders said, snarking, "I know that is something that you probably do have a problem with".

At the Capitol, Schumer said questions surrounding Kavanaugh extend beyond sexual assault and now encompass his truthfulness and judicial temperament. Jeff Flake (Ariz.), a key swing vote in the Kavanaugh confirmation, said there's "no time and no place" for remarks like that, adding that they were "not right" and "kind of appalling". I wish he hadn't. done it.

Loosely quoting Blasey, he said, "I had one beer". "The president's comments were just plain wrong", added Collins. I respect her position very much. "The president's comments yesterday mocking Dr. Ford were wholly inappropriate and, in my view, unacceptable".

Kavanaugh denies sexual misconduct allegations, says never assaulted anyone
Roche said. "We talked at night as freshman roommates do and I would see him as he returned from nights out with his friends". Murkowski isn't the only prominent Republican who has expressed reservations about Kavanaugh or his confirmation process.

Judge to decide if Cosby goes to prison for '04 sex assault
The 81-year-old star of The Cosby Show was found guilty in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Law professor Aviva Orenstein told Reuters that #MeToo "may have influenced the judge's willingness to allow more witnesses".

Still, if you're not baulking at shelling out £1,449 on a phone then the extra £9 for the adapter won't hurt your pocket too much. This means the same phone costs R7,600 more in South Africa than in the USA , not a great deal more than a return flight to NY .

"If nothing developed beyond what most of us would think would be the scope, they can finish it within a week", said Mark Zaid, a lawyer and expert in federal background investigations.

Keyser, a longtime friend of Ford's, was present at the small party where Ford was attacked, according to Ford's testimony before the Judiciary Committee.

Under pressure from opposition Democrats and handful of his own Republicans, Trump on Friday ordered a fresh FBI investigation into allegations of Kavanaugh's misconduct during his youth.

Trump spoke to a capacity crowd at the 8,400-seat Landers Center, with people lining up more than 12 hours before the event began at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday evening. Scrutiny has been building this week on Kavanaugh, not only because of the accusations, but because of his testimony at that hearing. I don't even know him.

This raises the possibility of conservatives rallying around the Kavanaugh confirmation fight and cutting into the enthusiasm advantage among Democratic women, many of whom who were politically activated when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.

President Trump, while making his case that Kavanaugh deserves a spot on the Supreme Court, told the rally crowd in MS, "I don't even know him".

This is Trump speaking to reporters outside the White House. Kavanaugh testified he has never assaulted anyone. Voters will be casting ballots in November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's party.

Several people with information related to the Kavanaugh allegations have said they tried in vain to speak with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
