Hawley wants investigation of Democrats over Kavanaugh; Sen. Feinstein responds

And while Trump has called Christine Blasey Ford, who testified to Congress that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were in high school, "credible" and "compelling", he has continued to support Kavanaugh's confirmation and emphatically defend his character.

"We're in the midst of a manufacturing renaissance - something which nobody thought you'd hear", Trump said in a speech to the National Electrical Contractors Association Convention a day after celebrating the new North American trade deal.

'I think he is a wonderful human being, ' he said, once again making it very clear where he stands.

"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", Mr Trump told reporters.

Members of the #MeToo movement have cast the Kavanaugh nomination as a test of how society treats women who accuse powerful men of sexual misconduct.

The FBI is investigating, lawmakers are sniping and the nation is watching.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) are other red-state Democrats whose election bids might be impacted by the hearings and their votes on Kavanaugh.

The ridicule of Blasey cut against the grain of the Republican strategy until that point of trying to gingerly question her account without seeming to attack her. Senate Republicans have emphasized their respect for Blasey and have praised her bravery in coming forward even as they accepted Kavanaugh's adamant denials.

The Republicans have a slim majority in the Senate and can afford few defections if Kavanaugh is to be confirmed. I can honestly say I never had a beer in my life, OK? "These are not qualities we look for in a Supreme Court justice, or a judge for that matter". "You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life and somebody could accuse you of something". Trump tweeted that no matter how much time and discretion the Federal Bureau of Investigation was given, "it will never be enough" for Democrats trying to keep Kavanaugh off the bench.

Trump was egged on by his MS supporters, as he repeatedly made fun of Ford's testimony about being sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh. specifically her claim that she only had one beer at the party where it allegedly took place. Trump said, apparently re-enacting Blasey Ford's questioning by a Senate panel as he addressed a campaign rally in Southaven, Mississippi.

Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. He is likely to call early elections if he fails. Turnout, though, was far lower than expected.

"What neighborhood was it in?" "I know you're not thinking". 'Where's the house?' I don't know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?

"He was a sloppy drunk - I remember him asleep on his feet slurring his words", said Klaus, a former roommate of Deborah Ramirez, who has accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a drunken Yale dormitory party. "This is not a man that said. he was flawless with respect to alcohol". "Now I am not saying that this is the same situation, because I don't think Dr. Ford is lying. We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.

All signs suggest Democratic women are energised by opposition to Mr Trump's presidency and the primary season yielded record numbers of female candidates.

What will happen to the Federal Bureau of Investigation report?

"I had one beer". "They destroy people, they want to destroy people", he said referring to Dr. Ford and the people backing her accusations.

He said he thought the judge "is doing very well right now". Judge has said he "categorically" denies the allegations.

He said he hopes McCaskill will join in the call for an independent investigation.

"I've had many false accusations, and when I say it didn't happen no one believes me, but it's my job description", Trump said.

Feinstein has said she did not reveal the allegations to her Senate colleagues because of Ford's request for confidentiality. They include notes from therapy sessions and video or audio recordings of a polygraph test she took.

But Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said Kavanaugh could be excused for showing passion.
