Trump hedges on Kavanaugh as 3rd accuser comes forward
Flake calls for civility, open minds at hearing for Kavanaugh, Ford

Trump declined to call the women who have made accusations against Kavanaugh liars, but said he empathizes with the judge given that multiple women came forward with allegations against him during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Kavanaugh, who has two daughters, said one of his girls said they should "pray for the woman" making the allegations against him, referring to Ford.
She claimed: "When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all very shocked when Brett Kavanaugh shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually".
According to NBC, the latest complaint says the assault took place whilst Judge Kavanaugh was drunk.
But when Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement earlier this year and Kavanaugh - respected by many as an appellate court judge - was mentioned as the potential replacement, Blasey Ford grew nervous.
"I am here today not because I want to be", Ford said.
"Sometimes I had too many beers", he acknowledged.
"He's one of the highest quality human beings", Trump said. The new allegations come a day before Kavanaugh is due at a public hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Those who say that do not know me. If Mr. Kavanaugh is being truthful when he flatly denies all accusations, an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe might turn up accounts that corroborate his story.
John Kennedy of Louisiana, a member of the Judiciary panel, said he needs to hear from Ford before deciding whether her story is credible.
"You have replaced "advice and consent" with 'search and destroy, '" he said. "So, that's frightening but she's fierce and she's smart and she's honest and no one should underestimate her", Guerry said. "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes [a sedative] or something similar placed in what I was drinking", she said.
Another accusation against Kavanaugh that he was asked about by Senate staffers this week: an alleged rape on a boat in Rhode Island in 1985.
But later in the news conference the president said he planned to be watching when both Kavanaugh and Ford testify on Thursday before the Judiciary Committee and would listen with an open mind.
Kavanaugh defended himself this week in a TV interview. He wrote that "allowing a belated, evidence-free accusation to stop a Supreme Court nomination will immediately create incentives that undermine the Senate's confirmation process in future nominations".
Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said he would listen to testimony from Supreme Court nomineeBrett Kavanaugh and a woman accusing him of sexual assault before deciding which way he would vote.
"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".
