Judge Brett Kavanaugh returns from a break in his Supreme Court confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, September 27, 2018. I don't remember. How'd you get there?
In a separate remarks, the president's son Donald Trump Jr said he was more anxious for his sons than his daughters in the current climate which they see being tilted against men. Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake called them "appalling", Maine Sen.
Thessalia Merivaki, assistant professor of American politics at Mississippi State University, said Trump's appearance in Southaven is a sign of the race's competitiveness.
He called Democrats who are against Kavanaugh "evil people" who want to "destroy people". Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied all allegations.
McConnell in a floor speech Wednesday says the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh's nomination this week.
Trump's Ford mocking is not the problem, the White House representative told reporters. Liberals have backed charges from women who have disparaged Kavanaugh as a privileged, preppy, binge-drinking, belligerent who assaulted women and men in his school and college years and is therefore temperamentally unfit for the Supreme Court.
"It's a tough thing going on if you can be an exemplary person for 35 years and somebody comes and they say, "you did this or that", and they give three witnesses and the three witnesses at this point do not corroborate what she was saying".
On Monday nine of the 10 Democrat Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray with a list of 24 people they believe should be interviewed.
FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning. I knew Brett at Yale because I was a classmate and a varsity basketball player and Brett enjoyed socializing with athletes. Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it".
Ford told the Senate Judiciary Committee she was "100 percent certain" it was a drunken Kavanaugh who pinned her down on a bed, groped her, tried to take off her clothes, and put his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams for help.
In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Trump did not back away from his rally comments, instead attacking Kavanaugh's Democratic critics.
Meanwhile Ms Ramirez's lawyer said he had not seen an indication that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has reached out to any of the 20 people who she said may be able to corroborate her account that Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were undergraduates at Yale.
Flake said Wednesday he'd be concerned if the Federal Bureau of Investigation only followed up on a few leads. Kavanaugh testified he has never assaulted anyone. "I don't think there would be any difficulty".
Republicans hold a 51-49 Senate majority heading into next month's midterm elections that will determine which political party controls both houses of Congress.
Ford's lawyers said on Tuesday she has offered her full cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation but received no reply.
