President Trump Boasts 'Beautiful' Support for Brett Kavanaugh Ahead of Confirmation Vote

Last week, two women who said they were sexual assault victims confronted Senator Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican, in a Senate elevator shortly before the Judiciary Committee was set to vote on advancing Kavanaugh's nomination.

President Trump is sounding off on protesters who are stalking lawmakers in their offices.

"The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad", the president wrote. He also claimed the signs, which look professionally made, were identical - therefore paid by Soros.

He went on to tell supporters not to fall for these tactics and referred to the protesters as "troublemakers". These are not signs made in the basement from love!'

However, this marks the first time Trump has explicitly mentioned Soros by name on Twitter - a move that could well fan the flames of conspiracy among the far right.

Some critics saw antisemitic overtones in Trump's tweet referencing George Soros, a billionaire liberal activist who is Jewish.

And a third women, Julie Swetnick, has said she was raped at a party that Kavanaugh attended with his boyhood friend Mark Judge. Democrats have raised concerns that the investigation has been too narrow in scope, and that key witnesses have been omitted.

Swetnick claimed Kavanaugh was involved in a series of "gang rapes" when he was in high school, but she offered no additional evidence or witnesses to support her allegations.

Among the women who have shared their stories of surviving sexual assault were two who accosted Sen.

He is expected to be confirmed Saturday in a largely party-line vote. Susan Collins - later reached an agreement to conduct the new Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the sex-assault claims against Kavanaugh in exchange for his vote to help advance the judge through the Judiciary Committee.

Republican senators have been confronted by protesters to oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation.

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, however, was filmed dismissively waving a woman away at the elevator and saying that he'd talk with her 'when you grow up'.
