'A Scary Time for Young Men.' President Trump Decries Sexual Assault Allegations

  • Senators vow ‘full scale’ investigation to determine who leaked Kavanaugh accuser’s letter

Donald Trump has said it is "a scary time for young men in America" because they may be presumed guilty if accused of sexual assault. "That is a very, very hard standard", Trump said outside the White House.

Ford testified last Thursday that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982 when they were high school students in Maryland.

"It's a very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House.

Professor Bernard Harcourt of Columbia Law School, one of the organisers of the second letter, said it had attracted nearly 400 signatures by late on Tuesday. Can you imagine if I had what a mess I'd be?

Five days after an extraordinary Senate hearing watched by millions of people in which university professor Christine Blasey Ford detailed her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Trump raised the issue of false accusations against men. "We simply can't", Flake, who is retiring as a senator in January, told an event in Washington hosted by The Atlantic magazine.

The comments came days after the Federal Bureau of Investigation opened a Senate-requested probe into allegations by 3 women that a drunken Kavanaugh sexually abused them or engaged in sexual misconduct while they were students in the 1980s.

Trump was more prudent, however, when asked about the outcome of the upcoming Senate vote on whether to approve Kavanaugh for the highest USA court.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate, made up of 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, will be "voting this week" on advancing the Kavanaugh nomination, setting up a possible final confirmation vote this weekend or early next week. "That's one of the very bad things that's taking place now".

Judge's interview started but "has not been completed", his attorney said in a statement quoted by Fox News.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, said a Friday vote would not give senators enough time to evaluate the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Agents have already interviewed Justice Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, according to his lawyer. Judge has previously denied any memory of such an incident. "He apologized to Amy Klobuchar for snapping at her", Graham said.

During the 2016 campaign, at least 15 women accused Trump of misbehavior ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.

In a report on red-state Democrats' "nightmare scenario" on the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, The Hill's sources, including two unnamed Democratic senators, make some revealing comments about what appears to be the driving hope of many Democrats in the Kavanaugh allegations: that the flood of increasingly ugly, uncorroborated accusations will compel him to bow out.

A person familiar with the matter said the Federal Bureau of Investigation questioned Deborah Ramirez, who has said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party when both were Yale University students.
