Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations 'scary time' for men falsely accused

Jim Bourg  Reuters

Senators are waiting for the FBI's reopened background check on the accusations against Mr Kavanaugh, who has denied the claims by all three women. "And when I see what's going on right now, it's scary". "Look at me and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me".

Trump said Kavanaugh - who denies the allegations and is adamant he did not drink to the point of blacking out, despite enjoying beer in his younger years - has been treated unfairly.

Gallagher was approached only a couple hours after confronting Senator Flake by The Daily Beast, and though Archila has appeared on Good Morning America and spoken with several other outlets regarding that day and her work as Co-Executive Director of The Center for Popular Democracy, Gallagher has otherwise remained understandably quiet since.

The FBI investigation, which Trump ordered after pressure from Sen.

Mr Trump was speaking to reporters at the White House amid bipartisan recriminations over the nomination.

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

But Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers, has not been contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation since Trump on Friday ordered the agency to take another look at the nominee's background, according to a member of Ford's team. "As interesting as this all is, I can't imagine that any members who want to read it will not go over there and read it immediately", Mr. McConnell said. A majority of sexual assaults - like the one Christine Ford has alleged about Brett Kavanaugh - are never reported to the police, according to The National Sexual Violence Resource Center. Just yesterday, October 1, in a national press conference he told ABC News White House reporter, Cecilia Vega,- "I know you're not thinking, you never do".

The Supreme Court is seen ahead of the start of its new term in Washington, Oct. 1, 2018.

The Republican party's narrow 51-49 majority means if all Democratic senators vote against the nominee, Republicans can only afford one defection.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a swing vote on the nomination, refused to be drawn into the issue of Kavanaugh's credibility or the timing of an eventual vote on Tuesday. "If they can corroborate and there's lying I think everyone's said that".

The fight over Kavanaugh's nomination to a lifetime job on the top USA court comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men. The email says, "Judge Kavanaugh indicated that he can no longer commit to teaching his course in January Term 2019, so the course will not be offered". She had said Monday night that the interview was not completed.

Ramirez has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her while both were college students.

He said it's important that senators had a chance to ask directly about what the FBI investigated, what evidence they collected and who they interviewed.

Ford testified last Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.
