Senators Stick to Partisan Lines Over Kavanaugh Nomination

Ford said Kavanaugh pinned her down on the bed of an upstairs room and tried to remove her clothes while holding his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming.

Kavanaugh has denied Ramirez's allegation.

"'How did you get home?' I don't remember".

"I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do what they have to do to get to the answer", Trump said. "How did you get there?" I don't remember. Where was the place?

"The issues of credibility and temperament are not something that happened 30 years ago; they're about Judge Kavanaugh today and how he is as a 53-year-old", Minority Leader Sen. "I don't know." At that point the crowd erupted in cheers and applause.

"I don't think you should lie to Congress", Trump said on Tuesday.

"It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you", the lawyers said in their letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

In a White House press conference, the USA president sought to excuse excessive drinking by teenagers, while going beyond Kavanaugh's own testimony on his past use of alcohol to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week.

According to McCaskill, the reason for her expected "no" vote on Kavanaugh has nothing to do with the sexual assault allegations against the nominee. Bromwich tweeted. "She is a remarkable profile in courage".

President Trump ripped the allegations brought by a woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, and blasted another accuser's attorney - Michael Avenatti - as a "sleazebag". She was questioned for more than two hours on Sunday and provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation with a list of over 20 possible witnesses, the person said.

As Republicans fight headwinds ahead of the November 6 midterm election, Trump sought to rally his supporters behind GOP Sen.

All signs suggest Democratic women are energised by opposition to Mr Trump's presidency and the primary season yielded record numbers of female candidates.

His opening statement suggested the inquiry into Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation was motivated by Democratic bitterness over the 2016 election and his role in the investigation of former us president Bill Clinton.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: "My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent".

At a campaign rally later in Mississippi, Trump pretended to be a son asking his mother how to respond to such an accusation.

In his warning, Trump echoed some of his allies. "This is not a man that said. he was ideal with respect to alcohol".

He then launched into an impression of a young man talking to his mom about accusations being leveled against him. "But this is no country at all".

"I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth", Chad Ludington told reporters.

McCaskill announced she will be a "no" when the full Senate votes on Kavanaugh's confirmation, the National Review reported.
