Republicans deplore Trump mocking Brett Kavanaugh accuser

Trump, while making his case that Kavanaugh deserves a spot on the Supreme Court, told the rally crowd in MS, "I don't even know him".

Earlier Tuesday, Senate Republicans and Democrats sparred over the ongoing FBI investigation, which is expected to be completed by Friday. He said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his ascension to the high court.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Meanwhile, a report released Tuesday by police in New Haven, Connecticut, says Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college. At his first Supreme Court confirmation hearing, September 4, he portrayed himself as a neutral arbiter of the law who is above politics, telling the Judiciary Committee that the Supreme Court "must never be viewed as a partisan institution".

A lawyer for the woman who says Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a college party, Deborah Ramirez, says he's seen no indication that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has reached out to any of the 20 people who Ramirez says may be able to corroborate her account.

Kavanaugh testified that while he enjoys drinking beer, and often did so in high school, he never drank to excess.

The battle over Kavanaugh is playing out in the middle of a midterm election campaign that has energized Democratic women across the country, against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement.

The poll found that 56 percent of all likely U.S. voters agree with the U.S. Supreme Court nominee's statement. Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh, who has made a name for himself as flagbearer for white male identity in America, unloaded on what he calls "militant feminism" after the dramatic Kavanaugh hearing. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", he said. That's part of the reason why America First made a decision to spend an additional $300,000 to continue airing its Kavanaugh ads on Fox News this week.

President Trump is done playing nice with Christine Blasey Ford.

Kavanaugh would replace Anthony Kennedy, who he once served as a law clerk, on the top court. "Something's stewing out there that wasn't stewing two weeks ago".

"There's no time and no place for remarks like that". What's next? Kavanaugh teamed up with James Spader to steal Molly Ringwald's underwear and throw it into the pool where Phoebe Cates is sunbathing while John Cusack holds up a boom box over his head screaming "I want my MTV!'?"

That ad will target Sen.

"People came to very different conclusions watching the same hearing", Severino said. "She's always had your back".

"The politics of personal destruction were willfully unleashed" by Democrats, McConnell said, adding, "This is not politics as usual". We will not be intimidated by these people. "Are there millions of women pissed off?"

The White House aides and allies said Tuesday that they remained optimistic Kavanaugh would be confirmed but frustrated with the delay on a vote.

National civil rights groups that oppose Kavanugh's confirmation also plan to step up their messaging this week.

The nation is paying close attention to the ongoing controversy surrounding the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"Somebody could come and say 30 years ago, 25 years ago, 10 years ago, five years ago, he did a disgusting thing to me". "It was very bad. I think everybody has struggled. A lot of motivation is that this is a Trump appointment".

"I don't think what he said is any different than what Justice Thomas said", Grassley said.

Democrats need to flip 23 seats to take control of the House of Representatives. With Republicans defending majorities in the House and Senate next month, officials cast Trump's visit as an attempt to get ahead of a potentially perilous situation.
