Trump calls Kavanaugh allegations ‘a big, fat con job’

Share

President Donald Trump, who is in NY this week for the United Nations General Assembly, will speak this afternoon at a general news conference. So far the White House and Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have declined to ask for the FBI to investigate the decades-old allegations against Kavanaugh - all of which the federal appeals court judge has denied.

"It's not going to change any of the Democrats' minds".

"This is one of the highest quality people that I've ever met", Trump said. "And they know it's a big fat con-job".

"I heard smiles... They weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me".

"It does impact my opinions because I've had a lot of false charges made against me", he said.

The new allegations, offered in an affidavit provided to the Senate by the accuser's attorney on the eve of a hearing to examine other allegations of alleged sexual assault, say Kavanaugh took part in efforts during high school to intoxicate girls so that a group of boys could have sex with them.

The president went on to say that Democrat "con artists" like Sen.

"I can be persuaded also", the President said.

In a rare press conference today, President Donald Trump laid out the reasons why women don't report sexual assaults. "I would certainly prefer not doing that [firing him]".

President Trump recently slammed special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, saying - once again - there was no collusion during his 2016 presidential campaign. "He may have had a bad past, who knows, you know?"

The Kavanaugh topic dominated the news conference, however.

As for the accusations, Trump said: "These are all false to me".

"Sir", said Colbert, "it's hard to believe you do anything but watch TV". But Trump was careful not to attack the women directly.

"Whether it's a man or a woman - it can happen the other way also", he said.

Trump called the allegations a "con job" earlier in the conference and has repeatedly tried to discredit Kavanaugh's accusers.

"People want fame. They want money. It's a very tough situation for a woman, there's no question about it".
