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

She testified that a drunken Mr Kavanaugh pinned her down, tried to remove her clothing and covered her mouth when she screamed. "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them".

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) appeared on Fox News and explained why the outsized attention being paid to Dr. Ford's ex-boyfriend demonstrates a willful effort to undermine her. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally Tuesday in Southaven. How did you get there? 'I don't remember.' Where is the place? Sanders wrote. "Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?" 'I don't remember.' How'd you get there? The ex-boyfriend, who dated Ford for six years, also said that she never spoke about the alleged encounter with Kavanaugh.

"I believed he was going to rape me", she told the panel.

"A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford", tweeted Michael Bromwich, a former high-ranking Department of Justice official who is now representing the professor. Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well?

Following testimony from one of his accusers before a US Senate committee, an FBI background investigation was re-opened to examine the allegations.

The agency has also spoken to the judge's Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez, who alleges that he exposed his genitals in her face during a college drinking game.

On Monday, Ms Van Gelder said her client had been questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation but the interview was "not completed".

Mr Trump was in MS yesterday looking to use his influence to sway the outcome of a low-profile election that could tip the balance of the Senate.

Republicans hold a 51-49 Senate majority heading into next month's midterm elections that will determine which political party controls both houses of Congress.

The president said: "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".

"My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty".

"Think of your son".

Democrats countered that brief delays in voting on Kavanaugh pale in comparison to Republicans refusing to consider former President Barack Obama's final Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, for most of 2016.

In his warning, Mr Trump echoed some of his allies.

Flake was instrumental in getting Trump last Friday to initiate an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge nominated by the president for a lifetime job on the top US court.

And Mr Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, told the Daily Mail this week: "I've got boys, and I've got girls". Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it".

Key Republican senators have called the White House in the last two days to make clear that they expect a fulsome investigation as the FBI reviews allegations against Kavanaugh.

Quoting an unnamed senior USA official, NBC reported that the FBI's witness list does not include Julie Swetnick, the third accuser to come forward with a claim against Mr Kavanaugh.

"The President's comments were just plain wrong", Collins told reporters in brief remarks before heading into a hearing of the Senate aging committee, which she chairs.

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle comes against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault that has toppled a succession of powerful men.
