Trump Praises ‘Incredible Man’ Kavanaugh, Says ‘We Want to Give Everybody a Chance’ to Speak at Hearing


President Donald Trump today weighed in on the Brett Kavanaugh hearing next week at which both the Supreme Court nominee and the women accusing him of sexual assault, Christine Blasey Ford, are expected to testify.

He again defended Kavanaugh — whom he praised as an “incredible man” — as someone with a good record, saying that the Democrats should’ve come forward sooner with this information.

“We want to go through this process and we want to give everybody a chance to say what they have to say,” the President said. “So we have time available, we will delay the process until it’s finished out.”

He said he accepts a delay as “acceptable” in order to get to the bottom of this before specifically calling out Dianne Feinstein for not acting on the letter sooner.

When one reporter asked about the FBI potentially getting involved, Trump said, “I don’t think the FBI really should be involved, because they don’t want to be involved. If they wanted to be, I would certainly do that.”

After addressing some other topics, one reporter asked Trump whether he’s met with Kavanaugh since yesterday. He said he has not yet but said, “He can handle himself better than anybody.”
