Key GOP Senators Condemn Trump’s Mockery Of Christine Blasey Ford

Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill on Thursday

Kilmeade meant a political rally Trump spoke at the previous evening, amid the latest public crisis to engulf his administration: a string of sexual accusations against the president's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

GOP lawmakers emerging from a closed-door lunch said that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation report arrived later in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would trigger a process that could lead to a crucial initial vote Friday and a climactic confirmation roll call over the weekend. Kavanaugh has denied Ford's accusation as well as allegations by two other women, all dating from the 1980s. "I respect her position very much", he said. "This is a person everyone thought of at the highest level on both sides".

The temperature around the vote has gone up dramatically in the past 24 hours, with President Trump on Tuesday evening mocking Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford at a campaign rally.

Trump mocked Ford at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, listing what he described as holes in her account as his audience laughed. "You think it was (more)? No!" I don't know. Where's the house?

"How did you get there?" he said, reverting to interrogator. 'I don't remember.' Where is the place?

Trump then asked and answered a series of questions with the responses "I don't remember" and "I don't know". Hyde-Smith, who was appointed by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant to the U.S. Senate seat to replace Sen.

#GamingBytes- Mojang announces new role-playing-game, Minecraft: Dungeons
I am quite pleased with the little teaser for Minecraft : Dungeons and it seems like the kind of Minecraft experience I'll enjoy. Mojang announced the game at Minecon today, providing a few general details about what Minecraft: Dungeons is all about.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said there was "some indication" during a meeting with Republicans Wednesday afternoon that the report would be available Wednesday afternoon.

Poll numbers have indicated a competitive race between Hyde-Smith and Espy with McDaniel a distant third.

With the midterm elections just weeks away, Republicans risk losing the House and possibly the Senate as they face an energised Democratic party - particularly educated, suburban women and minorities.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway made a similar argument earlier in the day, saying that Ford had "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president" and that Trump was "pointing out factual inconsistencies".

Republicans crucial in the voting sweepstakes for Kavanaugh's nomination have blasted Trump's mocking remarks.

Trump endorsed Hyde-Smith Aug. 23. Trump also paid off a porn actress for silence over an alleged one-night stand with her when his son Barron was only a few months old. Voters will be casting ballots in November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's party. He added a vote for Hyde-Smith is a vote "for him". "I just say it's kind of appalling", Flake said of Trump's comments. "Please go out and vote". Trump trashed Ford even though the FBI is looking into the matter, virtually prejudging the outcome of the limited investigation.

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