The controversy over the sexaual assault allegations against incoming Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh constituted a "disgraceful situation, brought about by people that are evil", President Donald Trump stated Monday as he celebrated his party's success in confirming the judge during a speech to law enforcement officials in Florida.
After the dust had settled and Kavanaugh was confirmed, McConnell said it as plainly as he could: "There is nothing that unifies all stripes of Republicansmore than a court fight".
"Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, an important swing vote on Kavanaugh who ultimately supported him, said in an appearance on CNN'sState of the Union aired on Sunday that she found Ford's testimony to be 'heart-wrenching, painful, compelling.' adding, 'I believe that she believes what she testified to'".
The "hoax" remark is the furthest the president has gone in trying to discredit Ford and other accusers.
"It was fabricated. And it's a disgrace", Trump said.
"She said that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, which is even more insulting than saying that she gave a very credible account".
Trump has been holding rallies across the country as he tries to boost Republican turnout in November's midterm elections that will determine which party will control the House and Senate during the second half of Trump's term.
Republicans say that anger on the right at the way Democrats treated Kavanaugh may have energized their voters as well. According to a new report from Planned Parenthood, 25 million US women of reproductive age "are poised to lose access to abortion immediately if Kavanaugh is the fifth vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade".
"We'll see if there is a vacancy in 2020", said Republican Sen.
