Jeff Flake blasts Don Jr. for mocking Kavanaugh's sex-assault accuser

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh waits to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the third day of his confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh waits to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the third day of his confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington

Then, a week ago, the Intercept online news site reported on a letter containing possibly damaging information about Kavanaugh.

With Trump's effort to cement conservative control of the nation's highest court on a knife's edge, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley set a Friday morning deadline for Christine Blasey Ford to decide if she will talk to lawmakers.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attacking her and trying to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party in 1982 when he was 17 years old and she was 15.

Trump, star of that infamous "grab 'em by the p**sy" Access Hollywood tape, assured reporters today he finds it "very hard for me to imagine that anything happened" between Kavanaugh and Ford, as she has claimed.

Ford told the Post, "I thought he might inadvertently kill me".

Ford's allegation has jeopardized Kavanaugh's nomination to the lifetime post on the Supreme Court, which previously was on a track toward confirmation. Of the Republican senators who expressed concern over proceeding to confirm the judge without hearing from Ford, including Sen.

Kennedy added that the allowance of a hearing for Ford and the judiciary committee's willingness to come to her is "pretty unusual". Senators, he said, will have to determine if Ford's account of the event meets the threshold to declare Kavanaugh unfit to serve on the Supreme Court.

Grassley has rejected calls for an FBI investigation. The lawyers argue that some senators appear to have already decided that they believe Kavanaugh instead of Ford.

US President Donald Trump says he will not order the FBI to investigate claims of sexual assault made against his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

The statement again extended an invitation to Ford to speak to the committee. They said her family had relocated.

A Senate committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination has been delayed.

A source close to the president's son said Wednesday that he did not create the image, and that he wasn't mocking Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser who has turned Washington inside out in the past week.

No matter the outcome, Democrats should be held responsible for circumventing the process that protects people like Ford, Hatch said.

As he dismissed the notion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation getting involved, Trump on Wednesday said of Ford: "I really want to see her". Ashley Thompson was the editor.
