Trump says Democrats using `con game´ to sink Kavanaugh court bid

Brett Kavanaugh leaving his home in Maryland this morning the day Washington D.C. is rocked by the most explosive allegation to date

Brett Kavanaugh leaving his home in Maryland this morning the day Washington D.C. is rocked by the most explosive allegation to date

His remarks came in a press conference that started with him stating all the accusations against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh are lies, and later calling developments late in the confirmation process a "con job", adding that "I've used much worse language in my life than con job".

'It is called the politics of destruction. In fact, it was Trump himself who said of the FBI: "They don't do that".

"I've had a lot of false charges against me", Trump said.

Trump responded with a nonsensical string of sentence fragments, saying that women can also be accused of sexual assault, and he "didn't think" victims of sexual assault are reluctant to come forward. The president said it wouldn't "have mattered" to Democrats "if the Federal Bureau of Investigation came back with the cleanest score" if they had investigated the veracity of the claims of sexual assault and more against Kavanaugh.

"[Democrats] are actually con artists because they know how quality this man is and they've destroyed his reputation", Trump told reporters at the U.N. General Assembly in NY.

While other Republicans have sought to undermine the women's accounts, Trump has gone further.

"There is a chance that her parents could have reported it 36 years ago", he said.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a house party in the 1980s, when they were both teenagers at Washington-area private schools.

Prosecutor says accuser good with Cosby sentence
As part of the overall evaluation, evaluators will decide if Cosby should be in the general population or in protective custody. Wyatt didn't focus on Andrea Constand who testified about Cosby having "crushed" her "young and attractive spirit".

She has said she was inebriated as well and has admitted to holes in her memory of some details.

Trump also suggested if George Washington were a current Supreme Court nominee, Democratic lawmakers would vote him down. "They know him very well".

'This is a con game being played by the Democrats'.

"We have a very good relationship".

That session, certain to be must-watch television for the nation, looms as a do-or-die wild card for Kavanaugh in which a split-second facial expression, a tear or a choice of words by either witness could prove decisive.

Ford has said Kavanaugh tried removing her clothes and covered her mouth to prevent screams after he pinned her on a bed during a high school party. It was unclear whether he meant women were angry about Kavanaugh or on behalf of Kavanaugh.

CNN's Jim Acosta made a weird request at the highly anticipated news conference Wednesday from President Donald Trump, and the president responded with a quizzical look.

"They weren't laughing at me".
