Mark Judge's lawyer says he was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation

"Now, in the midst of an FBI investigation, Republicans are interviewing former boyfriends of both Dr. Ford and Deborah Ramirez (another alleged victim of Kavanaugh) in a transparent attempt to discredit them", Feinstein said in her statement. Jeff Flake of Arizona said.

"There's no time and no place for remarks like that", he said on NBC's Today show.

Adding to the controversy, lawyers for two of the accusers said Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is not interviewing witnesses and following leads that would support their allegations.

Flake is not the only one who isn't taking the president's comments well.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders dismissed the widespread view that Trump mocked Ford. President Trump said, role-playing a conversation between a son and mother.

"I wonder about the wisdom, as much as the crowd loved it, I wonder about the wisdom tactically of him doing that".

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.

But at his rally on Tuesday, the president dismissively imitated Ford's appearance on Capitol Hill in an effort to cast doubt on her testimony. How did you get home? In fact, it seems very curious that Ford's attorneys would insist on another interview where her recollections might change even more than they already have. "I don't remember", he then parroted. "What do you get out of that?" "That's the only thing I remember"'. I don't remember, "per CNN". In Ludington's statement released Sunday he also mentions an altercation involving Kavanaugh: "On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man's face". I don't know. I don't know!

Canada Not Making 'Essential' Trade Concessions, According to Lighthizer
The U.S. has been holding negotiations with Canada after reaching a trade agreement with Mexico in August. Lighthizer said that there "is still a fair amount of distance between" the USA and Canada.

The investigation is set to last one week as part of a bipartisan agreement reached by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"It's just basic memory functions, and also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain that. encodes memories into the hippocampus so that trauma-related experience is locked there [while] other memories just drift", Ford said. "He is a profile in cowardice", Bromwich wrote on Twitter.

The president's tone on Ford's testimony stood in sharp contrast to his assessment last week.

I can unequivocally say that in denying the possibility that he ever blacked out from drinking, and in downplaying the degree and frequency of his drinking, Brett has not told the truth.

After Ford's measured testimony, Kavanaugh came out raging, at times shouting, crying, and disrespecting Democratic senators as they grilled him.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Democrats of trying to derail the nomination on Monday, declaring: "The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close".

As the Senate Judiciary Committee vote is now on pause pending an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, this is probably the worst thing Trump could have done to help his case. Sen. Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of CT, who sits on the Judiciary Committee and is a frequent Trump critic, slammed Trump for the remark.

Ali Campbell, the guy Kavanaugh thought he assaulted.
