WASHINGTON (Circa) — In an exclusive interview with political commentator Boris Epshteyn, President Donald Trump said that Dr. Christine Ford, who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of forcing himself on her when they were in high school, should be allowed to speak.
"Let it play out. Let her have an open voice, and let's see what happens," said the president.
Trump also emphasized the toll the saga was taking on Kavanaugh's family, and he said that he believes it's been extremely difficult for the judge. However, Trump also said he thinks Kavanaugh will be confirmed in the end.
Trump also took to Twitter on Friday to say that he didn't understand why, if the attack happened as Ford says, no report was made to the police.
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. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018
