'This is a very scary time for young men in America'

Graham Calls for Investigation of Feinstein's Office, Ford's Lawyers

"What I can tell you with certainty is we'll have an Federal Bureau of Investigation report this week and we'll have a vote this week", McConnell told reporters at the Capitol. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offered compelling testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and I commend her courage in coming before the world.

In response to the president's remarks, NARAL Pro-Choice America tweeted: "It's a very scary time for young women in America, you know, because 1 in 6 of us have been the victim of rape or attempted rape. Does that mean that they can't do something they want to do in their life?"

POTUS sounded off on the #MeToo movement on Tuesday when asked about the allegations against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Trump told the crowd they should do an online search for "Patrick Leahy slash drink". 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it?

"I think it's very unfair to bring up things like this", Trump said.

Stressing that U.S. lawmakers are demonstrating double standards in the scandal-ridden confirmation process of his protégé, Trump on Tuesday noted a drastic departure from the core American and basic legal principle of "innocent until proven guilty".

"We continue to confront how we can move forward as a society after looking the other way as women have been mistreated and abused for generations, and how that interacts with available evidence and the ability to determine culpability for past actions", he said.




Trump has said he found Ford's testimony "very compelling".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has said a vote will take place this week after the FBI wraps up its supplemental investigation into claims against Kavanaugh, which now includes allegations of drinking problems. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), another member of the committee, which voted to pass Kavanaugh's nomination on to the full Senate on Friday in a straight party-line vote, with the caveat from Sen.

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

What stops someone from making false statements in a written document or an unsworn interview? That's very risky for our country. "And I have it myself all the time, but for me it's part of the job description". He repeated a similar line to the crowd in Mississippi.

He also said that through the process, he's heard from many women who've shared stories with him that they said they may never have shared if not for the current climate.

"Think of your son".
