Republican Sen. Jeff Flake blasts Trump's 'appalling' digs at Kavanaugh 'victim'

Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony at rally in Mississippi

Jeff Flake of Arizona were even assigned special protection in response to the heightened levels of harassment.

But Trump also accused Ford of not remembering details that she recalled confidently, suggesting she did not remember where in the house the assault took place and had no recollection of the general time period or area when and where it occurred.

Flake told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that mocking "something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right".

"It's just not right".

"And I hope some conclusion or some summary will be made public because I hate to see Judge Kavanaugh be subjected to these allegations in public, which have to be embarrassing and destructive and not see the vindication if in fact that's what we see made public", Cornyn added.

"It's kind of appalling", Sen.

About two hours later, Sen.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scolded protesters Wednesday after weeks of harassment towards Republican members of the Senate for not actively opposing the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

DONALD TRUMP poured scorn on Dr Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee during a MS campaign rally. "I don't know", Trump said, drawing laughter and applause from the crowd. "But I only had one beer - that's the only thing I remember".

"How did you get there?"

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: How did you get home?

"36 years ago, this happened", said the president as he was referring to the alleged party in a house in Maryland where Ford alleges she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh.

Supporters of President Donald Trump cheer during a campaign rally.

Trump's mockery of Ford at a campaign rally on Tuesday night intensified political pressure on senators Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME as they consider how they will vote on Kavanaugh.

Flake is a key Republican vote in the confirmation battle, and while he said last week he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, he also called for an expanded FBI investigation that resulted in a one-week delay.

Senate GOP leadership doesn't intend to make the Federal Bureau of Investigation report on Kavanaugh public, and Republicans who want to release it don't seem willing to force McConnell's hand. Sen.

But at his rally on Tuesday, the president dismissively imitated Ford's appearance on Capitol Hill in an effort to cast doubt on her testimony.

None of the three undecided Republicans would say if their views had solidified, one way or another. And later: "After Ford's measured testimony, Kavanaugh came out raging, at times shouting, crying, and disrespecting Democratic senators as they grilled him". Jeff Flake in dramatic fashion on a compromise that led to the FBI reopening its background investigation.

"The woman has been accommodated by all of us, including Senate Judiciary Committee", Conway told reporters. "I don't know, I don't know".

It was not clear whether the remarks shifted the dynamic in the battle over Kavanaugh, whose appointment Republicans hope could shift the balance in the Supreme Court decisively to conservatives.

He told supporters in the town of Southhaven that his political opponents had been "trying to destroy Judge Kavanaugh since the very first second he was announced". Neither was Julie Swetnick.

TRUMP: I thought her testimony was very compelling, and she looks like a very fine woman to me.

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.

Ramirez has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they both attended Yale University.
