Trump BLASTS Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault claims as 'CON' and praises 'brilliant' judge

Trump on Wednesday stood by his decision not to call on the FBI to reopen its background investigation of Kavanaugh.

In comments to reporters following a speech at the United Nations, Trump took aim at Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, who told the New Yorker magazine that he exposed himself to her at a party when they were both first-year students.

"The president has no basis for dismissing the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh because he refuses to have the FBI investigate them".

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, considered a key vote on the Kavanaugh nomination, has said she would like to see Ramirez speak under oath to the committee but has not specified when she would like to see that happen.

"I think that's a very very unsafe standard for our country", Trump said.

"They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me", Trump said on Wednesday during his press conference in NY.

"They're going to have a big shot at speaking and making their case, and you know what, I could be persuaded also", he added, failing to note that only one woman, Christine Blasey Ford, will appear before lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

And if he believes the charges against Kavanaugh are ultimately true, he would consider withdrawing the high court nomination.

At the same time, he frankly conceded his mind could be changed after watching a blockbuster Senate hearing set for Thursday morning, when one of Kavanaugh's accusers will detail her claims before the Judiciary Committee and a national television audience. But there was also a hardening resolve to press forward and fight back once attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Trump's accuser Stormy Daniels and is toying with a 2020 presidential run, who entered the fray Wednesday representing the latest Kavanaugh accuser.

Asked whether he believed "all the women are lying", Trump opted not to answer, asking the reporter: "What's your next question?" Trump was also asked about a number of women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in the past.

"I was accused by four or five women who got paid a lot of money to make up stories about me". "And they go into a room, and I guarantee you, they laugh like hell at what they pulled off on you and on the public".

Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations against him. It's the Democrats who have been halting it from the beginning and not allowing this to go through the process because they want this to be a political game and I think that the way that they have operated in this is absolutely appalling, ' Sanders said. "And you understand that very well, John".

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference on September 26, 2018, in NY. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, for example.

Stressing that, unlike his predecessor Barack Obama, he favored the people of Iran against their government, Trump then boasted that he has brought them unprecedented misery. But Trump signaled that he was inclined to keep Rosenstein on board and may even delay that planned meeting. "I could pick a woman and she could have charges made against her". "Not to the American people".

Questions about Rosenstein tenure have swirled since the Times published its report Friday.
