Donald Trump: ‘it’s a very scary time for young men in America’

Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) in DeSoto County, Mississippi, Trump ran through a list of unanswered questions gleaned from the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh assaulted her in 1982.

Democratic Party politicians are raising questions both about the truthfulness of Mr Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the Senate, and whether he has the temperament for the lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation aims to complete its supplemental background check into the allegations of sexual misconduct made against Kavanaugh by the end of this week, and as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to hold a vote on the nominee in the coming days.

"I had one beer!" "I don't remember", Trump said, mocking Ford's answers during last week's hearing.

"How did you get home?" he said, taking on the role of prosecutor. How did you get there? "The interaction with the members was sharp and partisan, and that concerns me", Flake said. 'How many years ago was it?' I don't know.

"We going to talk later I don't want to do anything to interrupt what's happening with this process - that's fine but I don't want to do anything to interrupt the process".

"I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth", Chad Ludington told reporters.

"I would re-nominate him, and I would take this case to the American people, and I'd ask voters in IN and Missouri and North Dakota and other places where Trump won saying who he would nominate if he got to be president and see if the voters want to appeal the verdict of their senator". The senator said Kavanaugh would vote to overturn abortion and gay marriage rights.

CNN sees parallels between Trump's statements and comments Donald Trump Jr. made in a Monday interview with the Daily Mail in which he said that, in light of the Kavanaugh allegations, he is more afraid for his sons.

"Women are doing great", Trump replied, before walking off to board Marine One.

Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn, Trump also drew a line on lying to Congress.

They came as he spoke about people who have had allegations of sexual assault follow them, even after decades. "'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know'". He means men must fear women's ability to say things that could ruin them. Oh.

Trump could announce to voters in those states that he would nominate Kavanaugh again in 2019, after a new Senate convenes, Graham said.

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

In addition to Ford's allegations, Deborah Ramirez, a former classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale, has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself at a drunken party during the 1983-84 academic year.
