Trump mocks Christine Blasey Ford over Kavanaugh allegations

The members called for bipartisan ground rules to be established for public discussion of the information provided by the FBI, adding it is critical the American people have confidence in the FBI's investigation.

Speaking at a press briefing at the White House, Sanders argued that Trump was not making fun of the California psychology professor, who alleged that as a teenager Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh held her down, put his hand over her mouth and tried to remove her clothing.

The Senate Majority Leader filed a motion for cloture Wednesday night setting up a Friday vote on whether to end debate on Kavanaugh's nomination and move forward with a vote.

Flake, the Judiciary Committee member who pushed to delay the vote on Kavanaugh so the FBI could investigate, later told The Washington Post that Trump's comments would not factor into his thinking on the nomination.

Imitating Ford's testimony, Trump, who was himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, said: "What neighbourhood was it in?"

"Where's the house? I don't know!" I don't know. I don't know.

The audience laughed as the president said: "Thirty-six years ago this happened: I had one beer!" I don't remember. Where is the place?

At a news conference on Monday, President Donald Trump decried what he described as "trauma" inflicted upon Kavanaugh, but nevertheless said he wants to see the FBI "do a very comprehensive investigation". "Before I start jumping in, let me just read what they have and we'll go from there".

Later Wednesday morning, Collins similarly told reporters that "the president's comments were just plain wrong".

Trump's commentary has not been received well by Republican lawmakers, including Sen. "Wholly inappropriate and entirely unacceptable" chimed in Murkowski. He had previously called Ford a "very credible witness", while continuing to back Kavanaugh.

Democrats are raising new questions about the truthfulness of U.S. supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's sworn testimony to the USA senate.

Trump limited the investigation to no more than a week.

On Trump's performance in MS, she said, "I'd prefer that we all have some grace here".

The FBI is expected to have over its report to lawmakers before they vote, but the report's findings are not meant to be made public.

Kennedy said that if all findings can not be released, he'dsupportan objective summary of the report to be shared to avoid senators leaking "selected versions that advance their position".

However, as of Wednesday afternoon, senators did not expect to receive a full report of everything the FBI investigated in their week-long investigation - rather, they expected interview summaries without any drawn conclusions or summaries from the FBI, Republican Sen.

Trump's fellow Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.

Republican senator Jeff Flake is among those who have taken issue with comments Mr Trump made.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said Ford's story hasn't been corroborated and people should be presumed innocent until proved guilty. But privately, the White House restricted the Federal Bureau of Investigation from delving deeply into Kavanaugh's youthful drinking and exploring whether he had lied to Congress about his alcohol use, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter. She said Ford has "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president", and said Trump was merely "pointing out factual inconsistencies".
