Donald Trump Mocks Christine Blasey Ford at Rally in Mississippi

Earlier, Trump had defended his pick but admitted that the appeals court judge has had a "bit of difficulty" with alcohol.

"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". Depending on how Republicans perform on November 6, the eyes of the nation could fall on a November 27 MS runoff in what could become an expensive and high-profile race to determine control of the Senate.

Trump laid out a scenario in which a man gets a job at General Motors but then is faced with accusations of sexual assault from a woman. A federal statute, 18 U.S.C. 1001, criminalizes such acts "under penalty of felony" saying such persons will be "fined and imprisoned not more than 5 years". "However, if his nomination were to fall short, I would encourage President Trump to re-nominate Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court".

He dismissed accusations that Democrats were trying to delay the vote, noting that it was moderate Republicans in the Senate who slowed the Kavanaugh confirmation process in the past week.

"In this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent, that's one of the very, very bad things that is taking place right now", Trump said.

"I had one beer, that's all I remember", Trump said, mocking Ford.

"Any lawyer will tell you that she said-he said situations are some of the hardest and most painful cases to review, and that remains true here", Scott said in the statement. "Women are very angry", Trump said.

"I don't think Republicans realize what they've unleashed", she added.

He expressed optimism a vote on Kavanaugh could come by the end of the week, citing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

"Your vote in this election will decide which party controls the United States Senate", Trump said.

"I drank beer with my friends". Susan Collins (R-Maine), signed by more than 800 faculty, administrators and staff at colleges and universities who live and work in ME, urging her to vote no on Kavanaugh's nomination. The President went on to slam the second alleged victim of Kavanaugh, Debbie Ramirez, calling her 'totally inebriated'. He had previously called Ford a "very credible witness".

The FBI will also question Leland Keyser and P.J. Smyth, two people who Ford said were at the gathering of teenagers where Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.
