'I don't remember': Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford's testimony

Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys rip into the FBI over its renewed Brett Kavanaugh investigation

The Senate has delayed a confirmation vote on Kavanaugh while the FBI conducts a background investigation into Blasey Ford's allegations.

"I've had many false accusations, and when I say it didn't happen no one believes me, but it's my job description", Trump said.

Meanwhile, a report released Tuesday by police in New Haven, Connecticut, says Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college.

"And a man's life is in tatters, a man's life is shattered", Trump continued. When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense". Last Thursday, he testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing on Dr Ford's allegations. What's next? Kavanaugh teamed up with James Spader to steal Molly Ringwald's underwear and throw it into the pool where Phoebe Cates is sunbathing while John Cusack holds up a boom box over his head screaming "I want my MTV!'?" The New York lawmaker said the claims of Kavanaugh's accusers deserve a full investigation but stressed that the FBI review should be finished this week.

Democrats offered harsher assessments. The Kavanaugh hearing crystallized what has become a central divide in American politics. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Sen.

"Unfortunately, that was too accurate", Leahy said during an interview on MSNBC. "It does not reflect a judicial temperament". A spokesman for McConnell declined to clarify whether McConnell was referring to procedural votes or a final vote on confirming Kavanaugh. "I thought her testimony was very compelling, and she looks like a very fine woman to me, very fine woman", Trump said of Ford while speaking to reporters on Friday.

The FBI is expected to spend the coming days investigating the sexual misconduct claims against Kavanaugh.

Protesters have also focused on two other senators who are undecided on Kavanaugh - moderate Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

GOP leaders say an Federal Bureau of Investigation report on Kavanaugh will be completed soon.

Kavanaugh was nominated by President Donald Trump to fill the vacancy on the court left by retiring Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally Tuesday in Southaven.

Jeff Flake Admits FBI Investigation Will Probably Do Nothing
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the investigation will be "limited in scope" and "will not be a fishing expedition". Ford, a California college professor, was not questioned as part of a criminal proceeding, but in the confirmation process.

"To mock her last night like the President did, he's dividing us into tribes and last night was the most basic tribe of all: men and women", King said. With the Republicans holding a razor thin majority of 51-49, the conference can only afford one defection if they want to see Kavanaugh confirmed. Kavanaugh was not arrested for the attack, but he and four other men were questioned by police.

"With all of that you can not say that we've done anything but be respectful, and I do".

Flake, an Arizona Republican, has played a key role in Kavanaugh's confirmation process. Flake has said Kavanaugh's nomination would end if the FBI investigation found he had lied in his Senate testimony. She also told the Senate committee that Judge appeared nervous when she encountered him a few weeks later at the grocery story where he worked.

"That finishes everything", Manchin said.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the confirmation vote will occur once senators of both parties have a chance to review the FBI's conclusions. Democrats, Republicans, even the president.

"I was hoping to hear back from them for follow-up questions". He has previously said he doesn't recall the events recounted by Ford.

The agency has also spoken to the judge's Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who alleges that he exposed his genitals in her face during a college drinking game. Alaska's native population drove Murkowski's successful write-in campaign in 2010.

Ford claims she was nearly raped by former schoolmate Kavanaugh at a house party in the early 80s, and that she was only saved after an onlooker intervened and pulled Kavanaugh off her.

Chuck Grassley, the Republican chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, separately demanded in a letter to Ford's lawyers that they provide a range of materials to determine whether her allegations are credible.

"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.
