Trump and his team authorized an FBI investigation into Dr. Ford's disturbing claim about Kavanaugh after Senator Jeff Flake called for it last week due to the overwhelming urge from citizens.

At a campaign rally in MS on Tuesday, President Donald Trump repeatedly ridiculed Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both teenagers. "'I don't remember, '" Mr Trump said imitating Ms Ford at the rally in Southaven, Mississippi. "'I don't remember, '" he continued.

"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".

He had previously called her a "very credible witness".

"All I can tell you is it came from somebody with a political motive", he said.

"Right now I would say, my sons", he said.

The ad also points to McCaskill's work with President Trump on legislation aimed at combating the nation's opioid epidemic and helping veterans.

"Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory, and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to questioners", the letter reads.

"You could be somebody that was ideal your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something - doesn't necessarily has to be a woman ..." I don't remember. Where was the place? I don't know - but I had one beer.

"A man's life is shattered", he said of Kavanaugh after making fun of Ford's testimony.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate, made up of 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, will be "voting this week" on advancing the Kavanaugh nomination, setting up a possible final confirmation vote this weekend or early next week. "There's been a lot of people over the previous year that have lied to Congress", Trump said.

An FBI investigation is an important step, and should be completed.

U.S. Senator Tim Scott say he'll vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the United State Supreme Court, but says it was not an easy decision to make for him.

Ugh. His logic is utterly demeaning to the victims of sexual misconduct, but it's exactly the type of narrow-minded garbage we'd expect from the man who was accused of sexual assault and still became president.

In last week's hearing, Blasey Ford said Judge witnessed Kavanaugh's alleged assault and jumped on top of them as it happened, sending all 3 tumbling and allowing her to escape.
