Dianne Feinstein Unloads on Trump For Rally Screed: Christine Ford ‘Deserves Better’

05 October 2018

"It's just not right. I don't know", he added, to cheers from supporters.

When it came to channeling his emotion into this illustration, he says, "I read the transcript of the testimony, and it brought back, even in written form, a lot of her pain".

His Republican colleague Susan Collins joined in with criticism of the president, saying his comments were "just plain wrong". Mr Kavanaugh has denied Dr Ford's allegations.

Earlier Wednesday three Republican senators key to Kavanaugh's approval blasted Trump for mocking Ford at a political rally.

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate, said last week he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, but then called for an expanded FBI investigation of the accusations, delaying the confirmation timetable.

Flake and Collins have said they won't make a final decision on Kavanaugh's confirmation until the FBI completes its investigation into the allegations.

President Donald Trump's remarks at a MS rally Tuesday night mocking Christine Blasey Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh "made me feel sort of sick", Sen.

Trump ordered the FBI to reopen the investigation into Kavanaugh last week after a dramatic last-minute demand by Senator Flake during the Senate Judiciary Committee's vote on the nominee.

"Having fun at her expense", Tapper echoed. 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs? "Whether you like it or not, I really don't care", Graham said. "But it can be worse: you can actually kill somebody's cat and puncture their tires to get them to shut up".

"President Trump went through a factual rendition that I didn't particularly like and I would tell him to knock it off", Graham said, "You're not helping". 'Where was the place?' I don't remember.

"The bottom line is, I know what can happen to a woman who comes forward in a political environment". But I had one beer. Nope! It was one beer.

A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. She knew what she was up against when she came forward but spoke out because she felt it was her civic duty. "He is a profile in cowardice".

West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito - like Ford, a graduate of the Holton-Arms School - has said she supports Kavanaugh.

The FBI has finished an interview with Chris Garrett, a high school friend of Mr Kavanaugh.

Flake is one of a handful of moderate Republicans in the Senate whose votes could seal Kavanaugh's fate. And I do. And I respect her position very much.

As a vote nears, Democrats have also sought to highlight concerns about Kavanaugh's temperament, pointing to moments in last week's hearing in which he grew testy at senators and was emotional at other points.

Given one week from last Friday to complete the review by the Senate, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was under heavy pressure to demonstrate that they were interviewing all possible witnesses to the three decade old allegations.

"'What neighborhood was it in?' I don't know".
