Trump won’t say if he believes Kavanaugh’s accusers are lying
President Trump on Wednesday refused to say whether he thinks the three women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are lying.
“I can’t tell you whether or not they’re liars until I hear them,” he said at a news conference.
However, Trump opened the door to withdrawing Kavanaugh’s nomination after Thursday’s hearing, when the nominee is expected to testify along with his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
“If I thought he was guilty of something like this, yeah, sure,” the president said.
But Trump also defended Kavanaugh’s reputation, saying he would not get into that “game” when asked whether he thinks the women are lying.
“I won’t get into that game. I only tell you this. This is one of the highest quality people that I have ever met,” Trump said. “Everybody that knows him says the same thing.”
About the women’s allegations, Trump said: “These are all false to me.”
Reporter: “Mr. President, there are now three women accusing Judge Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Are you saying that all three of those women are liars?”
Pres. Trump: “These are all false to me. These are false accusations in certain cases.”
He reiterated his belief Democrats are using the charges to sink Kavanaugh’s nomination, calling the effort a “big fat con job.”
He won’t call them liars? How many ways can you call them liars without using that exact term?
