Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford, says 'I've had so many false accusations'

■While the FBI's exact plans are unknown, Democrats have sent the agency a list of two dozen witnesses they want interviewed, and there are still others who have spoken out on Kavanaugh whom the Federal Bureau of Investigation could speak with.

In a raucous campaign-style rally in MS on Tuesday night, Donald Trump mocked Dr Christine Blasey Ford, who in wrenching testimony before the Senate judiciary committee last week said that the supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. She said Judge was also in the room.

US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at a man during an altercation at a bar while in college, it has emerged.

Ford's attorneys say they heard nothing from anyone at the bureau; they say it is "inconceivable" that the agency could conduct a deeper inquiry into the allegations against Kavanaugh without interviewing Ford. "We are not moving the goalposts back", Schumer said. Ludington said Kavanaugh had mischaracterized the extent of his drinking at Yale.

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

At The Daily Show, Trevor Noah called the UB40 incident "probably one of the greatest stories of all times", but he began with the troubling doubts about Kavanaugh's truthfulness.

On Tuesday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) renewed his pledge to vote this week. "Whatever that means, according to the senators and the Republicans and the Republican majority, I want them to do that", he said. He demanded that attorneys for Ford turn over her therapist notes and other key materials, and suggested she was less than truthful about her experience with polygraph examinations during the hearing. "We've got a Supreme Court justice to get confirmed!" Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Claire McCaskill of Missouri. Many see her as the most likely Republican to flip and vote against Kavanaugh. Trump subsequently ordered the investigation.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton literally laughed out loud when she was asked about Kavanaugh's assertion that the allegations against him were "revenge on behalf of the Clintons". And I think the country needs to be behind it and we need a more bipartisan process.

Kavanaugh denies any wrongdoing.

In particular, Democrats have homed in on his contention that the allegations against him are an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".

Graham discussed the strategy in more detail on Fox News, saying that Trump could use the issue in the midterm elections to go after Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., "Have you?" He said Kavanaugh seemed willing to "mislead senators about everything from the momentous to the mundane" to ensure his ascension to the high court.

Former classmates have stepped forward to challenge Kavanaugh's testimony about his drinking. Kavanaugh was not arrested for the attack, but he and four other men were questioned by police. "I had one beer!" he said. Jeff Flake's call for an FBI investigation after hearing testimony from Ford and Kavanaugh.

When Sen. Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat, asked Ford what she could not forget about the assault, she replied: "Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter - the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense". I don't remember. Where was the place? Now they are criticizing him for getting mad. "It was very bad. I think everybody has struggled".

"Despite these efforts, we have received no response from anyone involved in this investigation, and no response to our offer for Dr. Ford to be interviewed", they said in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and General Counsel Dana Boente.

In angry and defiant testimony before the Senate, Kavanaugh denied Ford's accusation, as well as allegations by two other women of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
