President Donald Trump on Tuesday openly mocked the university professor who has accused his Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault, joking about her inability to remember details surrounding the night of the alleged attack.
Trump was more prudent, however, when asked about the outcome of the upcoming Senate vote on whether to approve Kavanaugh for the highest United States court. "I would feel frightful that we destroyed Kavanaugh", said Graham.
Former classmates have since stepped forward to say that Kavanaugh was a frequent drunk.
Earlier, Trump had defended his pick but admitted that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol.
Playing to the crowd of thousands gathered to cheer him on, the president pretended to be Blasey testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday. But I had one beer. He talked about things that happened when he drank.
Then, continuing in his own voice, he said: "And a man's life is in tatters".
"I don't think you should lie to Congress, and there are a lot of people over the past year who have lied to Congress", he said.
Speaking under oath before the Senate committee, Kavanaugh denied any drinking problem and denied bragging about sexual conquests in a high school yearbook entry.
"They have been blind in a blind rage ever since they lost the 2016".
That claim was further called into question Tuesday after the New York Times published a copy of a letter written by Kavanaugh in 1983 where he warned his friends of the danger of eviction from a beachfront condo they had rented for the weekend. 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it? "I liked beer. I still like beer", he said.
The FBI is now investigating sexual assault allegations against the current federal appeals court judge.
As Republicans fight headwinds ahead of the November 6 midterm election, Trump sought to rally his supporters behind GOP Sen.
Judge's interview started but "has not been completed", his attorney said in a statement quoted by Fox News.
Critics on social media condemned President for giving a national platform to a notion more commonly expressed among men's rights activists than publicly on the White House lawn-and drew attention to the real fear of violence that women across the country face every day.
"We going to talk later I don't want to do anything to interrupt what's happening with this process - that's fine but I don't want to do anything to interrupt the process".
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".
Senators, including Republican Jeff Flake, struck a deal Friday, September 28, that gives the FBI one week to conduct its investigation and deliver its report.
