FBI could finish Brett Kavanaugh investigation Wednesday

Ford’s Testimony Questioned After Ex Says She Helped a Friend Prep for Polygraph

Two Republicans senators who could hold the fate of Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation in their hands blasted President Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford over her allegations that the Supreme Court nominee sexually attacked her.

The president, at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, mimicked Ford's responses to questions at a Senate hearing last week when she described her allegations about Kavanaugh. "'I don't remember, '" Mr. Trump said at the rally, apparently alternating between questioner and an impression of Ford. I don't remember. How'd you get there? Asked about Trump's mockery in Mississippi, McSally said, "I'd prefer that we all have some grace here".

He mocked and impersonated Ford for not remembering some details of the attack that allegedly took place 36 years ago.

"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the statement read.

"What neighbourhood was it in?" "I don't know". Upstairs, downstairs, where I was. "And a man's life is in tatters", he added. Lisa Murkowski has said - her words were that it's inappropriate and unacceptable and that Trump's comments could sway her vote. "They want to destroy people", he said. "He is a profile in cowardice".

"The awful treatment of Dr. Ford and Ms. Ramirez tells every woman in this country to keep sexual assault to themselves", Feinstein concluded.

Officials said Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 percent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff.

Susan Collins of ME told reporters that Trump's remarks about Christine Blasey Ford were "just plain wrong".

Mayorga was even barred from saying Ronaldo's name to her therapist as part of the agreement. Ronaldo has denied the allegations in an Instagram live video , calling it "fake news" .

"There's no time and no place for remarks like that", he said on NBC's Today show.

"I wish he hadn't done it", Flake added.

That prosecutor, Rachel Mitchell, complied a multi-page report that questioned Ford's credibility, even though Mitchell said her questioning of Ford during the Senate hearing was imperfect and not the best way to ascertain the truth about her allegations. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who forced the committee's hand over the investigation, spoke with Today on Wednesday morning where he called the remarks "kind of appalling".

Trump was more prudent however when asked about the outcome of the upcoming Senate vote on whether to approve Kavanaugh for the highest United States court.

They also came amid concerns that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is limiting its one-week review of the allegations under pressure from Senate Republicans and the White House, and is not interviewing a number of witnesses.

CHANG: How have either of those two women responded to Trump's comments from last night?

Trump said he believed the Senate would approve the judge. Flake has not said how he will vote if the nomination comes up this week. "Kavanaugh's tone on Capitol Hill that day has been widely criticized, especially when compared to Ford's collegial nature".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared on Tuesday that he plans to ram through a final vote on Kavanaugh by the end of the week.
