The Supreme Court began a new term this week without a full bench as it waits on the FBI to investigate sexual abuse allegations against nominee Brett Kavanaugh. 'I had one beer.' Right?

"I think that it's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", Trump said Tuesday afternoon outside the White House. "You think it was (more)? No!" How did you get there? She said Ford has "been treated like a Faberge egg by all of us, beginning with me and the president".

"I don't remember", he replied to himself in the Ford voice. "Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?" I don't know. I don't know.

What neighborhood was it in?

"I don't know. I don't know", the President continued. 'Upstairs, downstairs, where was it?' I don't know. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said at the rally Tuesday in Southaven.

Some Democrats Questioning Kavanaugh Are ‘Not Angels,’ Media Is ‘Loco’
Kavanaugh and Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, where they answered questions about the allegations. When Ford's allegations became public, Collins was one of the first senators to say that she wanted to hear directly from Ford.

"Have a vote on the man", Conway said of Kavanaugh. "A man's life is shattered".

With the White House's blessing, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has expanded its inquiry into allegations against Kavanaugh beyond the initial four interviews that the White House directed to be conducted, and have now also spoken with more of Kavanaugh's classmates from Georgetown Prep who attended a party entered onto Kavanaugh's 1982 calendar.

On Friday, Mr Trump ordered the FBI to carry out an investigation lasting up to a week into the allegations against Mr Kavanaugh, acting on a request from Senate Republican leaders who were pressed by moderate senators in Mr Trump's own party.

They said they want the findings released publicly, and want an in-person briefing for senators with the agent who is leading the new background check. "I respect her position very much", Trump said to reporters on Monday.

The rising frustration came as Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation process played out before the country, with him and Ms Ford appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to discuss her accusation.

She also watched a nurse demonstrate how vitamins are administered to babies by mouth and toured the neonatal intensive care unit. Trump, 48, also had tea with Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, at the presidential palace, known as the Jubilee House.

Ford's lawyers have demanded the FBI interview her, and in a letter yesterday to the FBI said, "It is inconceivable that the FBI could conduct a thorough investigation of Dr. Ford's allegations without interviewing her, Judge Kavanaugh, or the witnesses we have identified in our letters to you".

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday echoed the president's newly aggressive approach.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Trump did not back away from his rally comments, instead attacking Kavanaugh's Democratic critics.

Flake, a 55-year-old lifelong conservative who is retiring from the Senate at the end of the year, has quickly emerged as the centerpiece of a passionate lobbying effort from the right and left. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, a member of the Judiciary Committee, seized on those comments Monday as she laced into Kavanaugh in a speech on the Senate floor.

In other words, he's not helping push through a SCOTUS nominee who has been accused of sexual assault by several women and who likely lied several times under oath because it's politically expedient.
