VIDEO: [Breitbart News] Press conference by female Supporters of Judge Kavanaugh
On Friday, after several days of restraint, President Trump openly questioned Ford’s story. He tweeted, “if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed” by “her or her loving parents.”
The tweet angered Maine Sen. Susan Collins, a key Republican still undecided on Kavanaugh.
“We know that allegations of sexual assault are one of the most under-reported crimes that exist,” Collins said.
Ford’s attorneys spent the day negotiating the terms of Ford’s congressional appearance. They want Kavanaugh to testify first. But Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee said Ford should, rejecting her request for an FBI investigation. They plowed ahead with their own probe.
CBS News obtained an email the committee sent to a woman who may have been “in attendance at a party that occurred circa 1982” requesting a “confidential phone call.”
On Friday, 75 women gathered to show support for their friend, Kavanaugh. That included Maura Fitzgerald, who dated him in college.
“In both public and private Brett treated me and everyone I know with respect. He has always been kind and good natured,” she said.
