Flake says Trump’s mocking of Ford ‘appalling’

Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford

The FBI hasn't questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh or Christine Blasey Ford because it doesn't have the authority from the White House to interview them, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

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.

During a rally in Mississippi, Trump repeatedly mimicked Ford's testimony, saying "I don't remember!" "He sent a clear message to victims of sexual assault that they should not believe", Feinstein said in her statement. "Right now I would say, my sons", he replied.

"I don't know. I don't know", Trump said. "We don't want to go on a witch hunt, do we?"

GOP lawmakers emerging from a closed-door lunch said that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation report arrived later in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would trigger a process that could lead to a crucial initial vote Friday and a climactic confirmation roll call over the weekend.

Sanders defended Trump's criticism of Ford's accusations and blasted the Democrats for not finding a way to confidentially share Ford's initial allegation to Republicans on the Judiciary Committee. The Senate's Republican leaders are planning a vote on Kavanaugh this week.

A month later, in August, Kilmeade lamented that former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman had "outsmarted the president" by writing a tell-all book about his chaotic administration.

"Every single word Judge Kavanaugh has said has been picked apart, every single word., second by second of his testimony has been picked apart".

Yale turns on Kavanaugh
A number of you have written to me to express concerns about Judge Kavanaugh's teaching in the Winter Term 2019. Gerken echoed the ABA, which on Thursday urged the committee to delay a confirmation vote on Kavanaugh.

Ford testified that she could not remember the precise date or location of the alleged assault or how she got home afterward, but offered a detailed account of the incident in which she said a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth when she screamed. When I watched Brett and his wife being interviewed on Fox News on Monday, and when I watched Brett deliver his testimony under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, I cringed.

Flake has previously said that his vote depends on the results of the FBI's investigation and has declined to speculate on whether he would be comfortable voting on Kavanaugh if the probe is not yet completed. "That's all I know".

Republican senator Jeff Flake is among those who have taken issue with comments Mr Trump made.

Speaking briefly to reporters, Collins said, "The president's comments were just plain wrong".

At one point, ABC's Cecilia Vega grilled Sanders by asking "just a couple days ago the president called Blasey Ford a credible witness, very compelling, but now he is basically making her out to be a liar, so which is it?"

John Clune said Ms Ramirez was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sunday and provided agents with the witnesses' contact numbers.

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, also said he hears the report will come Wednesday. In an interview on Monday, he said she was a "good witness", and he respected her.
