Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations ‘scary time’ for men falsely accused

"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law, and that obstructive, inappropriate behavior will be rewarded", the letter reads. Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight.

Flake and two other key Republicans - moderate Sens.

Mark Judge spent decades mining his recollections and writing books and articles full of semi-confessional details about the suburban Maryland prep school he attended with future Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I'm not going to do a hypothetical, I really want to go with facts and that's why I pressed for a supplemental FBI investigation", she told reporters.

But asked about McConnell pledge to move forward with a vote this week, Murkowski told The Associated Press that McConnell "talked about a vote a last week, too".

In the report, Ms Ramirez, 53, claimed Mr Kavanaugh exposed himself "at a drunken dormitory party" where she alleged he "thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away".

Flake, meanwhile, on Tuesday said senators have to give Kavanaugh some leeway for his combative testimony las week, given the nature of the accusations against him.

Ford admitted she hasn't always been sure of when specifically the alleged attack occurred, but said that establishing Judge's time of employment at the Safeway store would narrow the timeframe. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, said at an event in Washington. "They'll have the opportunity to vote "yes" on this fine nominee".

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe. "This is all part of the organised effort to delay, obstruct and intimidate, including those of us who will be voting this week".

Trump's GOP badly needs to motivate men, especially the white, working-class men who fueled the president's political rise, experts say. To that, Trump said it is not "acceptable" to lie to Congress.

Schumer said Kavanaugh was "rudely interrupting" senators in a way he'd never seen from a witness.

"Is he telling the truth?"

Flake, who pushed for a delay for the FBI to investigate the assault allegations, said he was keeping an open mind on the nomination. Ford alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. "He added that he himself has experienced 'many false allegations". "They'll have the opportunity to vote "no" on the politics of personal destruction".

The statement represents a reversal from Trump's earlier stance on Blasey Ford.

After huddling with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Friday, Flake told reporters that he has struggled with how to deal with the allegations against Kavanaugh.

A person familiar with the matter said the Federal Bureau of Investigation questioned Deborah Ramirez, who has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when both were Yale University students. Cozzolino said he then got hit on the ear with a glass. The incident happened in 1985 when Kavanaugh, an undergrad at Yale at the time, mistook a 21-year-old man at a local bar for Ali Campbell, the lead singer of UB40 (who had performed in the area that night), and allegedly threw ice and a beer at him, causing injury.

Harvard Law School representatives did not immediately return a request for comment from CNN seeking a specific reason why Kavanaugh felt he could not commit to teaching the course.

Flake said that he is pushing the White House for "a fulsome investigation" of the allegations against Kavanaugh.

His opening statement suggested the inquiry into Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation was motivated by Democratic bitterness over the 2016 election and his role in the investigation of former USA president Bill Clinton.

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