Kavanaugh investigation: FBI 'hasn't spoken to Christine Blasey Ford'

03 October 2018

President Donald Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford at a rally in MS, parodying her testimony against Brett Kavanaugh.

Donald Trump holds a "Make America Great Again" rally in Mississippi.

While Ford has said she is certain it was Kavanaugh who trapped her on a bed, groped her, and covered her mouth so she couldn't scream for help at a summer party, as his friend watched, she has also noted that other memories from the night are hazy. 'I don't know.' Where's the house? 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it? "But I only had one beer, that's the only thing I remember".

At a rally in MS on Tuesday night, Trump mocked Ford for not having answers to some questions during her testimony.

Steve King, a Republican member of the US House of Representatives from Iowa, said: "If Kavanaugh is not confirmed, every man is subject to seeing their life's work and their reputation destroyed by an unsubstantiated allegation". He continued to call out fake news, congratulated himself on his numerous achievements, and slammed people like Richard Blumenthal, Dianne Feinstein, and Corey Booker - just to name a few. They destroy people, they want to destroy people.

Attorney Michael Bromwich tweets that Trump engaged in a "vicious, vile and soulless attack" on Ford.

Kavanaugh's confirmation hinges on a handful of key Republican and Democratic senators who have not yet fully tipped their votes. Mr Kavanaugh, whose Senate confirmation has been thrown into doubt by the accusations, has denied the claims by all three women.

It was a dire picture painted by a president eager to convince his raucous supporters of what's at stake in November as he headlined a high-dollar, closed-door fundraiser and appeared at a packed rally in Johnson City to boost U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn in her tight Senate race against the state's Democratic ex-Gov. 'I don't know. I don't know.

Lemon went on to show the video of Trump reacting to Ford's testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week in-which he called her a "very credible witness" and a "very fine woman".

Under pressure from opposition Democrats and a handful of his own Republicans, Trump on Friday ordered a fresh FBI investigation into allegations of Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct during his youth. I don't know remember.

But Trump spent far more time railing against "radical Democrats", who he said had been "in a blind rage" since his election win. I don't remember. Where is the place? I don't remember. How many years ago? "Think of your sons", Trump told the crowd.

"You could be somebody that was ideal their entire life and someone could accuse you of something", Trump said.

Trump's comments were met with laughter and applause from the crowd. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to fill the seat of Republican Thad Cochran, who retired in April.
