Donald Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh on Monday afternoon in a session with reporters in the wake of the sexual assault allegations launched at his SCOTUS nominee.
Said Trump: “Brett Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I’ve ever known. He’s an outstanding intellect, an outstanding judge respected by everybody, never had even a little blemish on his record. The FBI has, I think, gone through a process six times with him over the years.”
Trump acknowledged there could be a delay on the confirmation vote.”I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months … but with all of that being said, we want to go through the process…If it takes a little delay, it’ll take a little delay.”
Asked if he had offered to withdraw from the process, Trump snarled: “Next question. What a ridiculous question that is.”
