Trump Says Lying To Congress Not Acceptable Amid Brett Kavanaugh Investigation

Trump Says Lying To Congress Not Acceptable Amid Brett Kavanaugh Investigation

The allegations against Kavanaugh - including sexual assault and exposing himself to a young woman in college - have sparked the latest reckoning in America about sexual assault and men's treatment of women, bringing the #MeToo movement back to the fore.

Five days after an extraordinary Senate hearing watched by millions of people in which a university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, detailed her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Trump seemed to raise the issue of false accusations against men. "Well, do you think it was - nope, it was one beer", Trump said, mimicking Ford's testimony last week to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Imitating her, he said: "But I had one beer - that's the only thing I remember".

"We learned tonight that our president can not resist mocking a woman who he had called a credible witness in front of a cheering crowd", Lemon remarked. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally in Southaven.

'I think he is a wonderful human being, ' he said, once again making it very clear where he stands.

Trump's comments were met with laughter and applause from the crowd.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied all of it.

"You could be somebody that was flawless your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something - doesn't necessarily has to be a woman ..."

"I'm very disappointed that she's sided with her party's leadership and opposed the Trump Administration against the best interests of Missouri at every turn". But I had one beer. "The interaction with the members was sharp and partisan, and that concerns me", Flake said. A man's life is shattered. "Women are very angry", Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-K.Y.) said Tuesday that the results of the FBI investigation into allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh will not be available to the public.

In his extended, one-man reenactment, Trump played both the committee's prosecutor and Ford, and suggesting that Ford was unable to recall key details about her alleged assault, NBC reports.

Flake said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had completed interviews with four people.

His remarks came as he responded to questions about allegations against the conservative jurist by three women who say Kavanaugh drunkenly sexually abused or harassed them when they were students in the 1980s.

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.
