'Very scary time' for young American men, says Trump

Senators vow ‘full scale’ investigation to determine who leaked Kavanaugh accuser’s letter

Senators vow ‘full scale’ investigation to determine who leaked Kavanaugh accuser’s letter

Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before boarding a flight Tuesday, Trump said that the political climate in America today makes it hard to refute allegations, referencing claims of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Trump said Kavanaugh - who denies the allegations and is adamant he did not drink to the point of blacking out, despite enjoying beer in his younger years - has been treated unfairly.

Mr. Trump said "a man's life is shattered", referencing Kavanaugh, and "these are really evil people".

The president again expressed hopes for a "positive" vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh by the end of the week, in line with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's publicly stated desire, but the president added Kavanaugh's fate is "dependent on what comes back from the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

"I had one beer!" he said, impersonating Ford at his MS rally. "I had one beer", said Trump, channeling his version of Blasey.

"'How did you get home?' I don't remember".

And Mr Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, told the Daily Mail this week: "I've got boys, and I've got girls".

"I don't remember", he replied to himself in the Ford voice.

"I think our core principles and values would be violated", Blumenthal said.

"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.

Third Kavanaugh accuser: I don't think be belongs on the Supreme Court
Swetnick , 55, who lives in Washington, D.C., said she graduated from Gaithersburg High School in Montgomery County, Maryland. Brett Kavanaugh's third accuser is adding her voice to the uproar surrounding the Supreme Court nominee.

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (L) stands on stage with US President Donald Trump at a "Make America Great Again" rally at Landers Center in Southaven, Miss., on Tue., Oct. 2, 2018.

In comments aired on Sunday on CBS's "60 Minutes", Flake said Kavanaugh's nomination would end if the FBI investigation found the nominee had lied in his Senate testimony.

While stumping for the midterms in MS, the president mocked Ford for forgetting some of the details when recounting Kavanaugh's alleged sexual misdeed. "But in this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent. Women are very angry", Trump said. 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it?

Interested in Supreme Court?

Upstairs, downstairs, I don't know.

They came as he spoke about people who have had allegations of sexual assault follow them, even after decades.

"I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do what they have to do to get to the answer", Trump said.

"My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty", Trump told reporters outside the White House.

"But here's what we know. one thing for sure".

While the GOP has continued to deny the problem of sexual assault and ignore the deep anger that the Kavanaugh nomination has ignited among women across the country, Jean-Pierre said only a "twisted worldview" could result in the opinion that men are the victims of this historic moment.
