Refraining from drinking one of my only good traits: Donald Trump

Trump's comments echoed remarks his son Donald Trump Jr. made in an interview with the Daily Mail on Monday, when he was asked if he is more afraid for his sons or his daughters in the wake of the reaction to the allegations against Kavanaugh.

Trump said he will talk "later" this week with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but expressed trepidation that meeting him before the Kavanaugh nomination is settled could interrupt the process. "Guilty until proven innocent - that's very unsafe for our country". "But somebody could accuse you of something, and you're automatically guilty".

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: "My whole life I've heard, "you're innocent until proven guilty", but now you're guilty until proven innocent".

The nomination has become a politically explosive issue ahead of November 6 elections, when control of Congress is at stake. "You can be somebody who was flawless your entire life, and somebody could accuse you of something ... and you're automatically guilty".

Asked if he had a message for young women, the president said "women are doing great". Kavanaugh was also given a chance to respond to the allegations, which he angrily denied. 'I don't remember.' How did you get there? I don't remember. How'd you get there? He called himself the victim of "a calculated and orchestrated political hit" by Democrats, lashing out at Democratic senators and frequently interrupting them.

"What's happening here has more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice", Trump said, adding he hopes the Senate votes later this week to confirm Kavanaugh as the high court's ninth justice.

'I think he is a wonderful human being, ' he said, once again making it very clear where he stands. "For me, that would not be acceptable".

Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin.


"I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do what they have to do to get to the answer", Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has vowed that the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh this week. "That's one of the very, very bad things that's taking place right now".

Mr Kavanaugh's confirmation battle and the national soul-searching over sexual consent it has provoked threaten only to further motivate liberal female voters, leaving Republicans searching for a counterweight. Flake said lying to the Senate Judiciary Committee would be an immediate dealbreaker on the nominee for him.

John Clune said Ms Ramirez was interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Sunday and provided agents with the witnesses' contact numbers. Mr Judge was an alleged witness to the alleged sexual assault. Judge has previously denied any memory of such an incident.

In a separate statement on Twitter, John Clune, who represents another accuser, Deborah Ramirez, said Federal Bureau of Investigation agents interviewed her on Sunday and accepted a list of more than 20 witnesses who can support her allegations. She argued that senators need more time to evaluate the FBI's findings.

The attack quickly drew scorn from critics, who said such taunts were part of the reason survivors of sexual assault are afraid to go public.

As you probably know, Kavanaugh is now accused by three women of sexual misconduct!
