President Trump on Tuesday accused Democrats of playing a "con game" with their calls for delays and investigations over sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
"It’s horrible what the Democrats have done, it’s a con game they’re playing, they’re really con artists," Trump told reporters at the United Nations, taking an increasingly aggressive stance in response to the ever-changing controversy.
Kavanaugh has been accused publicly by two women of sexual misconduct in high school and college.
Republicans have invited Christine Blasey Ford, who said Kavanaugh groped her at a party in high school 36 years ago, to testify on Thursday.
"What I know is the truth, and the truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone," Kavanaugh told Fox News' Martha MacCallum in an exclusive interview on Monday.
