It's not 'acceptable' if Kavanaugh lied in testimony

Christine Blasey Ford

"That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said.

Stressing that USA lawmakers are demonstrating double standards in the scandal-ridden confirmation process of his protégé, Trump on Tuesday noted a drastic departure from the core American and basic legal principle of "innocent until proven guilty". Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.

The comments came days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a Senate-requested probe into allegations by 3 women that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually abused them or engaged in sexual misconduct while they were students in the 1980s.

"I don't remember", he replied in the Ford voice.

"The president was also incensed by allegations that Kavanaugh attended parties where women were gang raped, a claim made by Julie Swetnick, who is a client of Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti, who has discussed running for president against Trump in 2020".

Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised fresh concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing. "'I don't know.' 'But I had one beer, that's the only thing I remember, '" the president said in a mocking tone. I don't remember. Where is the place? "It doesn't necessarily have to be a woman", Trump said.

"I was very troubled by the tone of the remarks".

"Any lawyer will tell you that she said-he said situations are some of the hardest and most painful cases to review, and that remains true here", Scott said in the statement.

"Your vote in this election will decide which party controls the United States Senate", Trump said.

"She testified for hours, and she remembered a whole lot more than the fact that she had one beer. The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.

An FBI investigation is an important step, and should be completed. ABC News reported that the agency finished its interview with Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, who Ford identified as a witness to the assault.

Ford alleges that a drunken Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and placed his hand over her mouth to silence her when both were teenagers in Maryland in the early 1980s.

He had previously called her a "very credible witness".

Ugh. His logic is utterly demeaning to the victims of sexual misconduct, but it's exactly the type of narrow-minded garbage we'd expect from the man who was accused of sexual assault and still became president.
