Trump comments on Ford ‘appalling…cruel,’ Dianne Feinstein says

Before the crowd Tuesday night in Southaven, Mississippi, President Trump imitated Ford during her testimony, mocking her for not knowing the answers to questions such as how she had gotten to the high school party where she says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

President Trump has said he wants the FBI to conduct a "very comprehensive investigation" into sexual assault allegations against his Supreme Court nominee - but not a "witch hunt".

"I don't have any problem stating facts, no", Sanders said, snarking, "I know that is something that you probably do have a problem with". "I think it is absolutely disgraceful what they have done and exploited this process".

"So President Trump went through a factual rendition, that I didn't particularly like, and I would tell him to knock it off".

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".

Sanders defended Trump's criticism of Ford's accusations and blasted the Democrats for not finding a way to confidentially share Ford's initial allegation to Republicans on the Judiciary Committee.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of trying to derail the nomination on Monday, declaring: "The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said "the president was stating the facts" at a MS rally where he imitated Professor Christine Blasey Ford.

Judge has said that he has no memory of the alleged incident and never saw Kavanaugh behave like that.

"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". When I watched Brett and his wife being interviewed on Fox News on Monday, and when I watched Brett deliver his testimony under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, I cringed.

"Where's the house? I don't know! I don't know", he added, to cheers from supporters.

Flake, whose reservations about Kavanaugh led to Trump requesting a supplemental background check on his nominee last week, also condemned the President's comments.

Keyser, a longtime friend of Ford's, was present at the small party where Ford was attacked, according to Ford's testimony before the Judiciary Committee.

The results of an additional Federal Bureau of Investigation background review are expected to be made available to senators shortly, McConnell said in his opening floor speech.

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men. I would be a hypocrite to think so.

"Although we do not know the status of the investigation, we are not aware of the FBI affirmatively reaching out to any of those witnesses", Clune said in a tweeted statement.
