Police report reveals Brett Kavanaugh allegedly threw ice during bloody bar fight

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the "far left" is trying to "bully" Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with a "mudslide" of sexual misconduct allegations.

FBI investigators had not reached out to a third woman who said she witnessed Kavanaugh engage in "inappropriate contact of a sexual nature with women in the early 1980s", her attorney, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter early Sunday morning.

If President Trump's statement Tuesday morning that it's a "very scary time for young men in America" had you screaming into the void, just wait until you watch him mock Christine Blasey Ford.

"What neighborhood was it in?" 'I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know! But I had one beer. "'Upstairs? Downstairs? Where was it?"' Trump told the crowd, referencing Ford's recent testimony, in which she told senators Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a high school party in the 1980s.

At the Capitol, Schumer said questions surrounding Kavanaugh extend beyond sexual assault and now encompass his truthfulness and judicial temperament.

Mr Flake said on United States television: "There's no time and no place for remarks like that, that discuss something this sensitive at a political rally". It's just not right. Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it".

President Trump maliciously used that handicap against Ford at the rally. She declined to say if it would affect her vote.

But the White House said Wednesday it was up to the GOP-controlled Senate.

"This is unfair. What they're doing to this good, decent man can not stand", Graham said.

The big banana-shaped sofa on the set of "Fox & Friends" has nearly always been safe space for President Donald Trump.

On Friday, he voted to move the nominee out of committee but called for an FBI investigation into allegations made against Kavanaugh in order to gain more clarity on the matter before the full Senate votes on his nomination.

Almost three weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct were first publicly made against Judge Kavanaugh, the accusations have yet to be corroborated by any witnesses.

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

"36 years ago, this happened", Trump said referring to the 1982 party where Ford alleges the assault took place.

White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway also defended the president.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders dismissed the widespread view that Trump mocked Ford. By Ford's own testimony, there are gaps in her memory.

"Oh, good. How'd you get home?"

GOP lawmakers emerging from a closed-door lunch said that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation report arrived later in the day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would trigger a process that could lead to a crucial initial vote Friday and a climactic confirmation roll call over the weekend.

The bar fight report comes amid Kavanaugh's testimony in which he challenged claims that suggested he was a "sloppy drunk". Voters will be casting ballots in November 6 elections in which Democrats are trying to seize control of Congress from Trump's party.
