Mitch McConnell Says Senate Hallway Protesters Won't Stop Kavanaugh Vote

  • Source FBI Spoke With Deborah Ramirez Second Kavanaugh Accuser

Mr. McConnell said the report will be done this week, and the Senate will vote this week.

At a political rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford's testimony about the alleged assault in Maryland in 1982 when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17.

This topic was a recurring subject throughout the briefing as Sanders continued to insist that Trump was simply calling Ford into question, while Democrats have been "exploiting" her.

"What neighbourhood was it in?"

"Where's the house? I don't know!" 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' I don't know.

"I had one beer, right?" "'I don't remember,"' Mr Trump said imitating Ms Ford at the rally in Southaven, Mississippi.

Republicans argue the Kavanaugh debate will drive enthusiasm among men and women. "There's no time or place, but particularly, to discuss something so sensitive at a political rally is just wrong", Flake told CNN's Raju.

But he added: "I never saw him passed out but I saw him quite drunk".

"I'm not on the ballot, but in a certain way I am", he said. She did not respond when asked if his comments would affect her vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.

He had previously called her a "very credible witness".

President Trump said that if Kavanaugh did lie to Congress, then "that would not be acceptable", but the White House has said the administration does not feel that Kavanaugh lied under oath.

"They've destroyed Judge Kavanaugh's reputation, undermined Ford's privacy and tried to upend our traditions of innocent until proven guilty in the process", she said.

"A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford", tweeted Michael Bromwich, a former high-ranking Department of Justice official who is now representing the professor.

His comments came as lawyers for Ms Ford and a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, said they fear the FBI is not conducting a thorough investigation into their allegations.

Although the FBI has yet to conclude its investigation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed Tuesday that a vote will happen on Kavanaugh's nomination this week regardless of what the FBI finds.

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.

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.

Whether that report will make its way into the public's hands is unclear. Scrutiny has been building this week on Kavanaugh, not only because of the accusations, but because of his testimony at that hearing.

I do not believe that the heavy drinking or even loutish behavior of an 18 or even 21 year old should condemn a person for the rest of his life.

The President's remarks also offered an opening to critics of the Kavanaugh nomination, including Democratic Sen.

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".

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "the president is pointing out factual inconsistencies".

Professor Charles Ludington, who teaches at North Carolina State University, said he had seen Judge Kavanaugh slurring his words and staggering after excessive alcohol consumption while at Yale.

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.
