Flake says Trump’s mocking of Ford ‘appalling’

"What neighbourhood was it in?" "I don't know. Where's the house?' I don't know". I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don't know. I don't remember.

The president warned about a unsafe and "damn sad situation" in the country where a man's life can be destroyed over accusations over misconduct and are assumed guilty instead of innocent.

"I wish he hadn't done it".

Loosely quoting Blasey, he said, "I had one beer".

She testified that a drunken Mr Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth when she screamed.

"With that being said, I'd like it to go quickly ...

The president's comments yesterday mocking Dr. Ford were wholly inappropriate and, in my view, unacceptable".

Republicans hold a 51-49 Senate majority heading into next month's midterm elections that will determine which political party controls both houses of Congress. "That's one of the very, very bad things that's taking place right now".

Trump's comments come at a time of intense political division in Washington.

On Friday, Mr Trump ordered the FBI to carry out an investigation lasting up to a week into the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh, acting on a request from Senate Republican leaders who were pressed by moderate senators in Mr Trump's own party.

We'll have more on the fight over Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court after headlines, when we'll speak with Dr.

The Senate is expected to vote this week on Kavanaugh's confirmation as the FBI wraps up a short-term investigation into Ford's account.

Dudley denied the accusation to the police, and Kavanaugh did not want "to say if he threw the ice or not", the Times reports that the police report said.

Flake has clashed repeatedly with Trump over his behaviour and is retiring at year's end.

It is not clear whether any part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation report will be made public, but Thune acknowledged "some of it will probably make its way out into the public and into the mainstream".

Opposition among Americans to Kavanaugh has increased in the wake of last week's hearing, Reuters/Ipsos polling data showed on Wednesday.

"In the past, with the Central Park Five, he put out an ad basically calling for the death penalty before they had been found convicted, and even after they were exonerated, he still basically said that they may be guilty", Rascoe said.

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".

Republicans argue the Kavanaugh debate will drive enthusiasm among men and women. Trump himself helped perpetuate some of those fears, as NPR White House correspondent Ayesha Rascoe pointed out to Sarah Huckabee Sanders in Tuesday's White House press briefing.

"The president was stating facts", Sanders responded.

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.

It looks like bad news after bad news for Trump. While some senators from both parties have said they'd like at least a summary of the findings to be released, Senate procedures call for such checks to be kept confidential. Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who questioned Prof Ford during testimony, said she had told a polygrapher it happened in the early 80s, then crossed out the word "early".
