President Trump is publicly speaking out in defense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as Democrats ramp up their attacks on the Supreme Court nominee.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left wing politicians who don’t want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay. Facts don’t matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018
I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018
The radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW. Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018
Thursday night during an interview with Fox News anchor Sean Hannity, Trump said he still wants to hear Ford's story, but that she can no longer delay the confirmation process.
.@POTUS on allegations against Kavanaugh: "Let her have her say, and let's see how it all works out, but I don't think you can delay it any longer. They've delayed it a week already." #Hannity https://t.co/icC8qkVbLS pic.twitter.com/5YpA0N1QMi— Fox News (@FoxNews) September 21, 2018
Judge Kavanaugh has agreed to testify under oath at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Monday. His accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is refusing to testify Monday and says in order for her to ever do so, there are a number of conditions that must be met. Those conditions include having Kavanaugh, the accused, go first. She is also demanding he cannot be in the room during her testimony. Both are the opposite of long established and standard legal procedure.
MORE: Ford attorneys did NOT draw hardly any red lines in the list of requests. Those were mostly asks and appear to be negotiable, sources say. The only red lines: Ensuring her safety and making sure she’s NOT in the same room as Kavanaugh. Both sides say it was productive call— Manu Raju (@mkraju) September 21, 2018
