'This woman had no clue': Donald Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accusers
04 October 2018, 01:18 | Tara Lloyd
"@realDonaldTrump is pathetic. Today, he lamented that it's a very scary time for men, and tonight he mocked Christine Blasey Ford in front of thousands of Americans in Mississippi. It's a very scary situation where you're guilty until proven innocent". Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.
Trump's point - we think - is Ford's claims aren't credible because she can't remember many details about the alleged incident.
"The president was also incensed by allegations that Kavanaugh attended parties where women were gang raped, a claim made by Julie Swetnick, who is a client of Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti, who has discussed running for president against Trump in 2020".
Some Republicans and White House allies have suggested the allegations against Kavanaugh can be potent political fodder in the run-up to November 6, animating GOP voters who have so far lacked the same motivation to head to the polls as their Democratic counterparts.
"I'm not a drinker and I can honestly say I never had a beer in my life - it's one of my only good traits", Trump joked at a long, rambling press conference. 'I don't remember.' How did you get there?
"She testified for hours, and she remembered a whole lot more than the fact that she had one beer". Susan Collins (R-Maine), signed by more than 800 faculty, administrators and staff at colleges and universities who live and work in ME, urging her to vote no on Kavanaugh's nomination.
The presumption of innocence, Trump noted, seems to erode at a moment's notice once somebody brings sexual assault allegations against an individual, as in the case of Judge Kavanaugh, who is being accused of misconduct that allegedly occurred over three decades ago.
Lawyers for two of the accusers meanwhile said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses or following leads that would support their allegations.
The FBI is investigating Blasey's allegation that a drunken, teenaged Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed, groped her and covered her mouth when she tried to scream during a gathering of high school friends.
