Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake says President Donald Trump's mocking of Brett Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, was "not right" and "kind of appalling."

But Flake isn't saying whether he'll vote to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Ford alleges Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. He denies the accusation.

Trump mocked Ford at a rally in Mississippi on Tuesday night, listing what he described as holes in her account as his audience laughed.

Flake told NBC's "Today" show Wednesday that mocking "something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right." Flake added, "I wish he hadn't done it. It's kind of appalling."

Flake, who is retiring from the Senate, said last week he would vote to confirm Kavanaugh, but then called for an expanded FBI investigation of the accusations, delaying the confirmation timetable. Flake said Wednesday he'd be concerned if the FBI only followed up on a few leads.
