The US president questioned today the truth of the statements of the alleged victim of the judge who nominated to fill the vacancy that was generated in the Supreme Court.
“I have no doubt that if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been filed immediately with the local authorities by herself or her loving parents,”Trump said in his Twitter account.
“I ask that you present these accusations so that we know the date, time and place,”Trump added.
Christine Blasey Ford said that at a party, 36 years ago , when both were teenagers, Kavanaugh allegedly tried to override her and silence her protests. Ford has refused to go to testify on Monday to the Senate as requested and asked to set a new negotiated date during the next week.
Both the victim and the Democratic opposition, which has sought to delay the confirmation process from the beginning, demanded that it carry out an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) before any hearing on the subject in the committee, something that they have rejected Republicans, with a majority in the Senate.
On Monday, the White House announced that the president was interested in hearing the versions of both Kavanaugh and Ford, whose accusation has jeopardized the confirmation of the judge by the Senate Judiciary Committee, which should have taken place this week.
In another tweet, Trump defended the integrity of his candidate.
“Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a good man, with an incredible reputation , who is under assault by politicians of the radical left who do not want to know the answers, just destroy and delay,”Trump said.
