Kavanaugh steadfastly denies the allegations. "I don't remember", Trump told supporters.

"How did you get there?" I don't remember. Where is the place? "That's the only thing I remember", he added. I don't know.' 'Upstairs? And I think that - I don't know if this is going to continue onward or are we going to get a vote.

"Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well?" "He is a profile in cowardice". "There's no time or place, but particularly, to discuss something so sensitive at a political rally is just wrong", Flake told CNN's Raju.

Added Murkowski a few hours later: "I thought the president's comments yesterday mocking Dr. Ford were wholly inappropriate and in my view unacceptable".

"I don't know. I don't know", he said.

Watch a clip of Trump's remarks, which were met with laughter and applause from his MS fans, who chanted "We want Kavanaugh!" throughout Tuesday night's rally. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, whose votes are considered key to the nomination, both said they were satisfied with the pace of the process.


Trump was also lambasted online, including by many Democrats.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says President Donald Trump has reached a "new low" with his "outright mockery" of Brett Kavanaugh's chief accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. "It's all just so disgusting and depressing".

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., another Judiciary Committee member, said he is concerned by reports that the investigation could wrap up as soon as Wednesday.

"Trump shamelessly mocks Ford at rally as more Kavanaugh dirt surfaces", wrote Mashable.

All told, she has now provided the same account three times. "A man's life is in tatters". Trump said before a gathering of supporters, echoing one point Ford did recall.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called for a slowdown in the process, suggesting senators should have a day to study the Federal Bureau of Investigation report before deciding Kavanaugh's fate.


In addition to the spike of calls on Friday, RAINN reported an overall monthly spike of 157 percent for the month of September. Once the Senate receives the FBI's report, Republicans are expected to move toward a vote.

The FBI is conducting a revived background check into Mrs Ford's accusation and could report back as early as Wednesday.

"I believe - and again, this is Republican senators and this is the Senate - I believe they've been very respectful to the doctor, Dr. Ford".

Flake has previously said that his vote depends on the results of the FBI's investigation and has declined to speculate on whether he would be comfortable voting on Kavanaugh if the probe is not yet completed.

Asked if she had repeated the same two statements she provided the Senate Judiciary Committee, the lawyer answered, "yes".

In fact, the White House's decision to order an FBI investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh has been attributed by several publications to the decision of two sexual assault survivors to share their story with Sen.


But Flake isn't saying whether he'll vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
