Flake says Trump's mocking of Ford 'appalling'

Brett Kavanaugh the Supreme Court nominee during his heated testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee

That tone went out the window at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, where the president mocked Ford's testimony in front of a cheering crowd, NBC reports.

Speaking at a news conference at the White House on the reworked free trade agreement between the US, Canada and Mexico, Mr Trump said he wanted the investigation to "go quickly". "This is a very, very - this is a very hard time". 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing.

"I don't remember", Trump said, imitating the questioning of Ford during last Thursday's testimony. Cindy Hyde Smith (R-Miss.) at a Make America Great Again rally in Southaven, Miss., on October 2, 2018.

In response to pressure from the Senate, the White House eased limitations on the investigation that Trump approved on September 28.

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue just weeks before November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake.

Trump's attack on Ford comes only days after he praised Ford.

The controversy around Kavanaugh's nomination has erupted just a month before the midterm elections that will determine control of Congress. Trump is logging multiple trips each week to rally support for Republican candidates he needs to win, and on Tuesday showed he's ready to stoke voters by vociferously fighting for his nominee amid an FBI investigation into the allegations. The signees also criticize the judge for indicating that he believes allegations made by professor Christine Blasey Ford and other women are "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" by members of the Democratic Party rather than acknowledging that the Senate must try to understand and investigate the facts surrounding the allegations.

"I didn't get the sense that this person even knew what the Kavanaugh case was about", said Oh, an emergency room doctor in California.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, one of the three Republican senators who will likely decide Kavanaugh's fate, said Monday she is "confident that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will follow up on any leads that result from the interviews" when asked if the senator is satisfied with the scope of the inquiry.

In a video shared to Twitter, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., appeared to be ignoring several women at.an airport who approached him in the hope of sharing their survivor stories with him.

Less than 24 hours before, Trump mocking Christine Blasey Ford's testimony at a rally Tuesday night amid chants of "we want Kavanaugh" from the crowd. I don't remember. How many years ago?

Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations.

What were key takeaways from Senate hearing on Kavanaugh accusations?

"I don't know how she knew she had one beer", he said.

Trump's comments were met with applause from the crowd. "It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman", Trump said. "You are truly guilty until proven innocent".

"The mudslide was cheered on and capitalized on at every turn by the far left that has been so eager to stop this nomination", he said.

According to the police report, Kavanaugh was reluctant to say whether "he threw the ice or not". "That's the only thing I remember", he said, waving a finger in the air.

"Where's the house? I don't know!"

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.

The strict confidentiality of the FBI background check file, which will be updated with the bureau's latest report on the Kavanaugh allegations, is governed by a 2009 agreement between the White House and the Senate Judiciary Committee.
