'This woman had no clue': Donald Trump mocks Brett Kavanaugh accusers

Mr 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. I can honestly say I never had a beer in my life. It really does. You could be somebody that was flawless your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something.

The FBI team examining sexual misconduct claims against US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh have not yet interviewed his main accuser, her lawyers have said.

Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, insisted during last week's hearings she had nothing to do with Ford's letter being given to members of the press.

"What neighborhood was it in?"

"I don't know. I don't know", the President continued.

"I happen to know some United States senators, one who is on the other side, who is pretty aggressive". Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? "'I don't remember, '" Trump said, mocking Ford's voice.

"I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon", Graham said in a statement.

The letter went on: "This afternoon, we learned of media reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not intend to interview either Dr Ford or Judge Kavanaugh".

Even as the FBI explored the past allegations that have surfaced against Kavanaugh, another Yale University classmate came forward to accuse the federal appellate judge of being untruthful in his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the extent of his drinking in college. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, said at an event in Washington.

Trump's taunts could inflame a struggle over power and sex that has consumed the capital in recent weeks and risked alienating two of the undecided moderate Republicans whose votes will decide the fate of his nomination, Senators Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

While many prominent public figures have seized on the latest resurgence of the #MeToo movement to send a message to women and victims of sexual assault that their voices are being heard, Trump has focused on backing up the accused. "For example, she testified that she had exactly one beer at the party and was taking no medication at the time of the alleged assault".

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) denied that in a Senate floor speech Tuesday.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, said a Friday vote would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. They launched into occasional chants of "We want Chris".

"I continue to strongly support Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court".

The judge vehemently denies that.

Ms Ford's legal representatives wrote a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray asking why the bureau has not contacted their client after she offered to cooperate in its reopened background investigation of Mr Kavanaugh.
