President Donald Trump Friday defended his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a series of tweets that attacked the woman accusing him of sexual assault by name and demanded to see the charges filed 36 years ago if the incident "was as bad as she says."
"Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left-wing politicians who don’t want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay," Trump said in his first tweet
. "Facts don’t matter. I go through this with them every single day in D.C."
He then turned his attention to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who says Kavanaugh held her down and groped her during a party when they were both teenagers in Maryland.
"I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents," Trump tweeted.
"I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!"
Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, has said that her client told nobody of her allegations until she revealed the secret in couples counseling sessions in 2012.
In his tweets, Trump also demanded to know why the "radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW. Why didn’t someone call the FBI 36 years ago?"
The tweets were posted after a person claiming to have been talking the president throughout the crisis told Axios that "you have no idea" how hard it has been to keep Trump from attacking Ford.
“Hopefully he can keep it together until Monday," a person identified as a White House official said. "That’s only, like, another 48 hours right?”
