Graham to Trump: Renominate Kavanaugh if vote fails

Share

"I have deep reservations about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination to this lifetime position and, as I stated, we have been unable to get all the information necessary regarding this nomination, despite my best efforts".

This is "a scary time", Mr Trump said earlier on Tuesday.

"In the legal context, here is my bottom line: A "he said, she said" case is incredibly hard to prove".

The president said: "It's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of".

The three-decade-old accusation facing Brett Kavanaugh is not only false, they argue, but an example of the #MeToo movement gone too far in its call to believe the women and not the men.

Kavanaugh's confirmation would consolidate conservative control of the Supreme Court, with disputes involving abortion rights, immigration, gay rights, voting rights and transgender troops possibly heading to the court soon.

At the Senate, meanwhile, Republicans accused Democrats of doing everything in their power to delay a confirmation vote. "Here's what I would tell the president, I would appeal the verdict of the Senate to the ballot box", said Graham. "These are not qualities we look for in a Supreme Court justice, or a judge for that matter". It really does. You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something. "So now Trump is laughing at her with his "people" and Dr. Ford said one of the most traumatizing memories for her was..."

Ford testified that Kavanaugh groped her and attempted to remove her clothing while holding a hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming at a house party when they were both in high school in 1982.

After Brett Kavanaugh's repeated declarations of "I like beer" during congressional hearings last week, President Donald Trump acknowledged on Monday it's a trait he doesn't share with his Supreme Court nominee. 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it? 'Where's the house?' I don't know.

"Mom a awful thing just happened, a person who I've never met said that I did things that were disgusting, and they're firing me from my job, mom, I don't know what to do, mom, what do I do?" I don't remember. Where is the place?

A statement provided by Feinstein's office says she's made it clear that neither she nor her staff leaked the letter and says comments about investigating the leak are an attempt to distract from the allegations against Kavanaugh.

After the shocking mockery, Trump went on to defend Kavanuagh by saying his life was "shattered" from Dr. Ford's claims. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, said at an event in Washington.

Any Senate vote on his confirmation has been delayed for a week as the Federal Bureau of Investigation looks into the allegations against him.

Trump's taunts could inflame a struggle over power and sex that has consumed the capital in recent weeks and risked alienating two of the undecided moderate Republicans whose votes will decide the fate of his nomination, Senators Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
