MA politicians react to Trump mocking Christine Blasey Ford at rally

US President Donald J. Trump pauses to drink water while touting his foreign policy accomplishments during his trip to Asia in a speech in the Diplomatic Room at the White House in Washington DC 15 November 2017

But Republicans said they, too, are seeing signs of renewed energy among core Trump supporters that some had initially suspected would be less likely than Democrats to turn out at polls next month. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", Trump said at a White House news conference.

Trump and Senate Republicans have instructed the FBI to investigate it and any other "credible allegations" against him, but the president also said "speed" was important in the process.

Sen. Jeff Flake criticized President Donald Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford at his rally on Tuesday night, in an appearance on the Today show alongside Sen. With the political impact of last week's emotional Senate Judiciary Committee uncertain, outside groups are eager to be heard now before the next major news development.

Under pressure from moderate fellow Republicans, Trump on Friday ordered an FBI investigation lasting up to a week into the allegations against his nominee.

Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority in the Senate and Trump and party leaders want to get Kavanaugh confirmed ahead of November 6 elections, in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress.

Leland Keyser: The FBI has interviewed Keyser, who Ford also said attended the same party.

What she has said: "It is important to have a fair process for the sake of both Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford, as well as the integrity of both the judicial branch and the Senate confirmation process".

Regardless of what he did as a teenager, senators need to look at what Kavanaugh is saying now, Schumer argued.

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee voted on Friday in favor of Kavanaugh's nomination but a full Senate vote on confirmation was delayed for a week after President Donald Trump bowed to pressure from moderate members of his Republican Party for the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

The votes of the three aforementioned Republicans and those of red-state Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, will largely determine whether Kavanaugh is confirmed.

"And a man's life is in tatters", Trump said.

"It is a very scary time for young men in America when you could be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters on the White House lawn before boarding Marine One.

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), implying that he has a drinking problem. So when will a final vote be taken in the Senate on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh?

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?"

Two women had challenged him on Friday as he tried to close a Senate elevator door, confronting him with details of their own experiences of sexual assault and castigating him for announcing he would vote for Kavanaugh in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Democrats say they want at least 24 hours between the report's conclusion and the time of a vote. "They'll have the opportunity to vote "no" on the politics of personal destruction".

Avenatti, who has said he is considering a Democratic run for the presidency in 2020, is also representing Stormy Daniels, the adult-film actress who was paid to remain silent about an alleged affair with Trump.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fueled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.

McConnell has denounced Democrats, who have questioned Kavanaugh's truthfulness and temperament, for hurling "mud and muck" at the judge.

"I do think it brings up what's at stake in this election", Wicker said.
