Trump Defends Kavanaugh: “One of the Finest People I’ve Ever Known”

"Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I've ever known," Trump told reporters. "At the same time, we want to go through a process. We want to make sure everything is perfect, everything is just right."

President Trump defended his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, on Monday after allegations surfaced that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman at a party when they were both in their teens.

“Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I’ve ever known,” Trump told reporters. “At the same time, we want to go through a process. We want to make sure everything is perfect, everything is just right.”

Trump then bashed Senate Democrats for, as Trump claimed, holding on to this information “for many months,” adding that they should have revealed these allegations “a lot sooner.”

“One thing I will say is that, as I understand it, Judge Kavanaugh spent quite a bit of time with Senator Feinstein and it wasn’t even brought up at that meeting and she had this information,” Trump said.

A reporter then asked Trump if he thinks Kavanaugh’s confirmation should be delayed.

Trump added that he would like to see the Senate go through “a complete process” regarding these allegations and if that means Kavanaugh’s confirmation is delayed that is fine.

Another reporter then asked Trump whether Kavanaugh offered to withdraw his nomination.

“Next question. What a ridiculous question that is,” Trump said.
