  • Senators vow ‘full scale’ investigation to determine who leaked Kavanaugh accuser’s letter

President Donald Trump speaks to the media before departing from the White House en route to speak with electrical workers in Philadelphia, Penn.

As you probably know, Kavanaugh is now accused by three women of sexual misconduct! "I think he reacted in a very emotional way and I can understand why you could have high emotion at that moment". "You can be somebody that was flawless your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something. and you're automatically guilty".

Mr Trump also pretended to be a son asking his mother how to respond to an accusation. Trump tweeted that no matter how much time and discretion the Federal Bureau of Investigation was given, "it will never be enough" for Democrats trying to keep Kavanaugh off the bench.

Ford testified that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

The crowd cheered at Trump's cruel ridicule of a victim of sexual assault.

President Trump stands firmly with the accused.

The primary season yielded record numbers of female candidates.

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

In the extraordinary hearing on Thursday, September 27, Kavanaugh vehemently denied the sexual abuse allegations, and also aggressively challenged suggestions he had a drinking problem at the time. Or young men. Or middle-aged men. "I know that I don't need to get to that (as a reason to oppose Kavanaugh) because I have already made up my mind". "I don't remember", Trump said.

In last week's hearing, Blasey Ford said Judge witnessed Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all 3 tumbling and allowing her to escape.

Kavanaugh's nomination remains in limbo this week, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation looks into allegations of sexual assault made by numerous women.

"It's a damn sad situation", Mr. Trump said in Southaven, Miss.

"In this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent, that's one of the very, very bad things that is taking place right now", Trump said. But he said it's fine with him if the FBI wants to pursue accusations made by three women who have publicly come forward even as he has left the scope of the investigation to Senate Republicans. "And this is the way that can do that", Zelizer said. And 52pc of men believe Kavanagh has been treated unfairly, versus just 43pc of women.

According to McCaskill, the reason for her expected "no" vote on Kavanaugh has nothing to do with the sexual assault allegations against the nominee.

Republicans argue the Kavanaugh debate will drive enthusiasm among men and women.

Immediately, Republican challenger Mike Braun issued a statement critical of Donnelly, while reiterating his own support of Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation. "They've been woken up because of what's happening to Brett", he said. "And we better start as a country getting smart and getting tough".

Donnelly said he would welcome the opportunity to work with a new nominee.

But Democratic strategist Jim Manley questioned the strategy. "They have gone loco", he told supporters.
