Flake calls Trump's comments on Ford 'appalling'

Trump, in an angry rant at a MS rally Tuesday night, stuck up for Kavanaugh against the sexual assault claims and openly mocked Blasey's Senate testimony. "Well, do you think it was - nope, it was one beer", Trump said, mimicking Ford's testimony last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Trump mocked Ford at a rally in MS on Tuesday night, listing what he described as holes in her account as his audience laughed.

And Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine who caucuses with Democrats, said on "New Day" that Trump's comments "made me feel sort of sick". "Do you know how bad a fight has to be for the police to get called on a white guy at an Ivy League school in the '80s?!? You could be flawless your whole life and then someone comes around and accuses you.Now, you're guilty until proven innocent", Trump said. I don't remember. Where was the place? "There have been a lot of people over the previous year that have lied to Congress, and to me that would not be acceptable".

" 'What neighborhood was it in?' 'I don't know.' 'Where's the house?' 'I don't know.' 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' 'I don't know".

What is the status of the probe into allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in his high school and college years? Writing in all capital letters, Trump said when he goes to political rallies, which are organised by Republicans, he sees that voters are angry at the "vicious and despicable" way Democrats are treating his nominee.

Meanwhile, Harvard Law School confirmed on Tuesday that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh will not return to teach in January.

Flake said he would ensure it's a "real investigation", by the FBI as Democrats demanded that Trump give them a full readout of his instructions to the agency. Kavanaugh has emphatically denied all accusations of sexual misconduct. "I wish he hadn't have done it".

Senate Majority Mitch McConnell has said the Senate will hold a confirmation vote for Kavanaugh this week.

Judge is a former classmate of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

As we await the end of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, the details surrounding the Brett Kavanaugh drama seem incremental.

Sen. Kamala Harris, a member of the committee, said Ford "deserves better". "I'll take care of everything", he reportedly said.

"It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you", the lawyers said in their letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray.

And finally, President Donald Trump was asked about what his message was to young men, in the face of these allegations against Kavanaugh. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said outside the White House.

President Donald Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he still supports Kavanaugh but said it is "a scary time for young men" who could become the subject of false accusations. (According to the report, Kavanaguh "did not want to say if he threw the ice or not.") UB40 have now responded to the news saying the band, like most people, wants nothing to do with this Brett Kavanaugh mess.

"We are finally rebuilding our country, and we are doing it with American aluminum, American steel and with our great electrical contractors", he said. A third claim - from Julia Swetnick, who is represented by attorney Michael Avenatti - accuses Kavanaugh of excessive drinking and inappropriate treatment of women at parties in the early 1980s. Trump said as the audience cheered and applauded.

Ford told the senate she was "100%" certain that he was her attacker.

Republicans have accused Democrats of trying to drag out the confirmation process, with McConnell repeatedly charging they're trying to "move the goalposts".
