Outpouring of anger on Twitter after Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser

At a rally later in Southaven, Mississippi, Mr Trump mocked last week's Senate testimony by Prof Christine Blasey Ford, without mentioning her by name. Angus King (I-Maine) told CNN Wednesday morning, hours after Trump ridiculed Blasey's accusation at a campaign rally amid laughter and shouts of "lock her up".

"How did you get home?"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters that "I can tell you with certainty" that the Federal Bureau of Investigation report will be finished and the Senate will vote this week, though he didn't specify when. 'Where was the place?' I don't remember.

"I find that numerous voters we talk to aren't clear about this whole process, " Morial said.

"Where's the house? I don't know!" Downstairs? Where was it?' 'I don't know.

During a Tuesday gaggle with reporters gathered on the White House lawn, Trump expressed his sympathy for men - like his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh - who have been accused in the #MeToo era of having committed sexual transgressions.

He said that soon after the revelation of a letter by Ford asserting that Kavanaugh abused her at a high school gathering in Maryland, "The floodgates of mud and muck opened entirely on Brett Kavanaugh and his family".

Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "We're going to put a conspiracy theory believer on the court?" In doing so, Trump is feeding off the explosion of male resentment that is only growing in the wake of a college professor's allegations against Trump's Supreme Court pick which has now turned into a national circus. Supporters of Judge Kavanaugh had expected Ms. Mitchell to be more combative, but she was more interested in being thorough.

"Pretend I'm on the ballot", he added.

A spokesman for McConnell noted that the agreement with Flake and other swing senators was to have a procedural vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation by Friday, so the majority leader would have to take steps to tee up that vote on Wednesday.

The FBI will pass its findings to the White House, which will give them to the Senate.

Appearing at a forum sponsored by The Atlantic, Flake said he was concerned about some of Kavanaugh's sharp interactions with Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee last week.

The attack quickly drew scorn from critics, who said such mockery was part of the reason survivors of sexual assault are afraid to go public. The New York Times on Tuesday published a handwritten letter by Kavanaugh instructing friends participating in an upcoming holiday rental to "warn the neighbors that we're loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us". On Friday, Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona broke with his fellow Republicans and said that although he supported moving Kavanaugh's nomination out of the committee, he called for the FBI to investigate credible allegations against Kavanaugh.

Collins told reporters on Capitol Hill that Trump's attacks "were just plain wrong".

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

"We use the issues that people feel most passionate about", Warren said. With Republicans defending majorities in the House and Senate next month, officials cast Trump's visit as an attempt to get ahead of a potentially perilous situation. But she's made some strong comments about Ford and her testimony, making that less clear. "The Senate will vote on Judge Kavanaugh here, on this floor, this week", McConnell told the chamber.

Agents also have not contacted Julie Swetnick, who alleges in a sworn statement that Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, tried to get teenage girls "inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang raped" in a side room or bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys".

"The midterm elections are only 35 days away and a new group of senators may view Judge Kavanaugh's nomination very differently after hearing from the voters in their states", Graham said in his statement.
