Of course he does, because he himself is a sex predator, and he has NO clue as to what will be good for the court and the country, and … most importantly… he knows that Kavanaugh thinks some people are above the law and is likely to rule in his favor when his cases reach the Supreme Court (and there will be several!).
You can read stupid remarks by tRump and others below.
Excerpts from the Article:
President Trump on Monday dismissed sexual misconduct allegations against Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh as “totally political” and pledged to support his Supreme Court nominee “all the way.” Trump’s comments, made as he entered United Nations headquarters in New York, were his first since a report Sunday night on a second allegation of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, who Trump said is “a man with an unblemished past.”
“There’s a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen for a candidate for anything,” Trump told reporters. “For people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mention it, all of a sudden it happens. In my opinion, it’s totally political.”
On Sunday, the New Yorker magazine reported that Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh’s at Yale University, said he exposed himself at a party when they were both first-year students. In a statement issued by the White House, Kavanaugh denied the accusation and called it “a smear, plain and simple.”
Trump on Monday called the allegations “highly unsubstantiated statements from people represented by lawyers,” adding: “You should look into the lawyers doing the representation.”
“Judge Kavanaugh is an outstanding person, and I am with him all the way,” Trump said.
His comments come as Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee seem to be moving in opposite directions over how to proceed with the nomination. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, called late Sunday for a delay in further consideration of Kavanaugh’s nomination.
But several Republicans are pressing for a quick vote after a scheduled committee hearing Thursday with Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor who has alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while both were teenagers in Maryland.
“What we are witnessing is the total collapse of the traditional confirmation process for a Supreme Court nominee,” Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) said in a string of tweets Monday morning. “It is being replaced by a game of delay, deception, and wholesale character assassination.”
“In my view, the process needs to move forward with a hearing Thursday, and vote in committee soon thereafter,” Graham said.
In his first comments since the New Yorker report, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) reiterated his call for the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh, a step the White House has resisted.
“There is only one way to get to the bottom of these allegations against Judge Kavanaugh and prevent the nation from being thrown into further turmoil: an independent background check investigation by the FBI,” Schumer said on Twitter. “If President Trump and Senate Republicans are so certain the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh aren’t true, then why are they blocking the FBI from reopening the background check and investigating? . . . What are they hiding?”
Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh drunkenly pinned her to a bed, groped her and put his hand over her mouth to stifle her screams as he tried to take off her clothes at a house party in the early 1980s. Kavanaugh has firmly denied the accusation.
