"Let me condemn in the strongest possible terms the comments by President Trump last night on Dr Ford", Schumer said in a Senate floor speech. Trump said, apparently re-enacting Blasey Ford's questioning by a Senate panel as he addressed supporters at a campaign rally in Mississippi.

"And a man's life is in tatters", Trump added. "This is a very, very - this is a very hard time". 'I don't know. Upstairs.

Senator Jeff Flake, a moderate Republican who could be pivotal in the confirmation vote, raised concerns about the judge's "partisan" tone at the Judiciary Committee hearing.

The rising frustration came as the Kavanaugh confirmation process played out before the country, with Kavanaugh and Ford appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to discuss her accusation. Voters will be casting ballots in November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's party. It's just not right.

On Twitter, Michael Bromwich, a lawyer for Ford, called Trump's remarks "a vicious, vile and soulless attack".

Trump made the remarks at a freewheeling rally that comes as the FBI investigates allegations that the embattled Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted female students while in high school and college.

Judge's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, told CNN that the Federal Bureau of Investigation completed its interview with Judge, whom Ford says was in the room when she was allegedly physically and sexually assaulted in the 1980s by Kavanaugh.

"I think that 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", Trump said Tuesday afternoon outside the White House.

He referred to Avenatti's client, Julie Swetnick, who says Kavanaugh was present during a gang rape in the '80s, as having "no clue" what was going on during a Tuesday NBC interview.

"And then he cried when they caught him, he cried like a baby".

Qureshi said it was the third time that the current Indian administration had called off talks, "each time on flimsy grounds". Those who take innocent human lives in pursuit of war by other means are defenders of inhuman behavior, not of human rights.

Bay State politicians are condemning President Donald Trump for mocking Christine Blasey Ford at rally with his supporters in MS on Tuesday night.

Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of pinning her down and trying to remove her clothing at a high school party 36 years ago.

Grassley (R-Iowa) warned that releasing materials from the FBI's investigation of allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh could dissuade future witnesses from cooperating with the bureau. But he said the nomination would be over if it was revealed Kavanaugh had lied to the committee in his testimony.

"I had one beer!"

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was also approached by sexual assault survivors and was seen in another viral video telling alleged sexual assaualt victims, "I know this is enjoyable to ya'll". Ford has alleged that Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her.

His response? It's "a very scary time for young men in America", because "you can be (found) guilty of something you may not be guilty of".

"He has grossly mischaracterized his relationship with alcohol", Schumer said, characterizing Kavanaugh as someone who "tiptoes around the truth".

"The mudslide was cheered on and capitalized on at every turn by the far left that has been so eager to stop this nomination", he said. Trump Jr. said he fears more for his sons than for his daughters in the age of #MeToo.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons said after speaking with White House counsel Don McGahn over the weekend he remained "very concerned" the FBI's probe would be too narrow.

But he said they are not following up at all on Ramirez's account that Kavanaugh thrust his genitals in her face, forcing her to touch them without her consent, during an alcohol-fueled party when they were students at Yale University in the mid-1980s.
