Candace Owens calls for jailing of Christine Blasey Ford: 'Lock her up'

Candace Owens calls for jailing of Christine Blasey Ford: 'Lock her up'

Two Republican senators who are key votes in the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh are criticizing President Trump's mocking of a woman who has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually attacking her in the 1980s.

Mr Flake called the president's comments "appalling", and Ms Collins said they were "just plain wrong".

At a campaign rally, he mimicked her and often inaccurately recalled her answers to questions she faced at a Senate hearing last week, drawing laughter from the sympathetic crowd but concern from Republicans that he'd made nailing down votes for Kavanaugh more complicated.

At a political rally in Mississippi Tuesday night, Trump mimicked Ford's responses at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week at which she recounted Kavanaugh's alleged attack on her when both were in high school.

The White House on Wednesday turned up the heat on vulnerable red-state Democrats, with a senior adviser to President Donald Trump warning them against being "complicit" in a scheme to "destroy" Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"How did you get home?"

Before Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) forced Republicans' hand, Cornyn was against requesting that the White House order the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into the allegations against Kavanaugh.

"A vote against Kavanaugh is a "yes" vote for more of these despicable tactics being used time and time again in the future", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, on the Senate floor Tuesday.

Those comments were not received well by some of the undecided senators, like Collins, who said it appeared Trump was mocking Ford.

Anticipation for the report built as Republicans assessed the impact of Trump's Tuesday night tirade against Ford.

Hours earlier in MS, the rally audience laughed as Trump mocked Ford and used the Kavanaugh drama to warn his supporters that men are under attack - and that a single allegation can ruin their lives.

The FBI could complete its interviews Wednesday and provide investigative summaries to the White House and Senators soon after. 'I don't remember.' Where is the place?

For this reason, Senate investigators are again demanding Ford's attorneys release all the information pertaining to her polygraph test and her therapist notes.

"A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford", tweeted Michael Bromwich, a former high-ranking Department of Justice official who is now representing the professor.

President Trump, while making his case that Kavanaugh deserves a spot on the Supreme Court, told the rally crowd in MS, "I don't even know him". 'I don't remember.' How did you get there?

Kellyanne Conway's revelation on live television Sunday that she is a victim of sexual assault came as a surprise to CNN viewers.

The audience laughed as the president said: "Thirty-six years ago this happened: I had one beer!"

The ridicule of Ford, delivered at the Landers Arena here in deeply conservative DeSoto County, is in stark contrast to the respectful way in which Trump and his aides had previously treated Ford's testimony, even as they have stood by Kavanaugh and his assertion that he never assaulted her or anyone else. I don't know. Upstairs?

"It's a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of", he said, adding: "My whole life, I've heard you're innocent until proven guilty". I don't know. I don't know! 'I don't know.' Where's the house?

Ford claimed in testimony that she had not had "any discussions with anyone. on how to take a polygraph" and had not "given any tips or advice to anyone who was looking to take a polygraph test" before taking her own lie detector test in August.

In an interview with MSNBC last month, Ms. Eshoo said she was unaware of how the letter leaked and insisted neither her nor Ms. Feinstein's offices were responsible.
