President Donald Trump attacked Democratic senators Monday, claiming that they were ‘no angels’ and that he had seen one in ‘a very, very bad situations – somewhat compromising’.
He said, without identifying the senator or offering any evidence, that he had seen them being ‘pretty aggressive’.
Trump did not make clear if it was one of the 10 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee who questioned Christine Ford and Brett Kavanaugh about her explosive allegations the Supreme Court Nominee sexually assaulted her when she was 15 and he was 17.
His attack on the Democrats came at an angry White House press conference where he also hit out at two of Kavanaugh’s accusers – saying one has ‘very little credibility’ and pointed to Christine Blasey Ford’s failure to identify exact details of her sexual assault allegation.
‘There are some questions that haven’t been answered – like what year was it? What day was it? Where was it? Do you know the location. Do you know the house? A lot of different things. People are saying: Well, you know, what’s going on?’ Trump said.
Trump declined to state specifically that the FBI, which is conducting a new background check on Kavanaugh following a Senate deal, should interview Julie Swetnick, who is being represented by Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti.
Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden that he has ‘heard that the third one has – I have no idea if this is true – has very little credibility. If there is any credibility, interview the third one.’
