  • President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he feels “terribly”
    for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family amid
    allegations of sexual assault that have upended his confirmation
    process.
  • Trump said Kavanaugh is “not a man that deserves this” and
    accused Democrats of deliberately derailing the process by
    holding onto information regarding the alleged assault until
    recently. 
  • The president said he supports hearing from Kavanaugh and his
    accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. 
  • Trump said “there shouldn’t be even a little doubt” when
    it comes to the confirmation process. 

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he feels “terribly” for
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family amid
allegations of sexual assault that have upended Kavanaugh’s
confirmation process.

But the president also said he supported hearing from Kavanaugh’s
accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who had not yet answered an
invitation to testify before the Senate Judiciary
Committee. 

“I feel terribly for him, for his wife, who is an incredible
lovely woman and his beautiful young daughters,” Trump told
reporters during a joint press conference with Poland’s
president. “I feel terribly for them.”

Trump said Kavanaugh is “not a man that deserves this” and
accused Democrats of deliberately derailing the process by
holding onto information regarding the woman’s allegations until
recently. 

The president added: “Hopefully the woman will come
forward, state her case, he will state his case before the
Senate. And then they will vote.”

Trump said “there shouldn’t be even a little doubt” when it
comes to the confirmation process. 

The Senate Judiciary Committee has invited Kavanaugh and
Ford to testify Monday. Kavanaugh has accepted the invitation,
but Senate Republicans say Ford and her legal team have yet to
respond. 

Meanwhile, there are also
calls for Mark Judge
, a friend of Kavanaugh who Ford says was
in the room during the incident, to come forward and
testify. 

Ford accuses Kavanaugh of attempting to force himself onto
her when they were both teenagers at a high school
party.
