Trump admits he doesn’t want Kavanaugh sexual assault claims probed: ‘I don’t think the FBI should be involved’

President Donald Trump on Tuesday revealed that he had not spoken to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh since the judge was accused of sexually assaulting a young woman when he was in high school.

Trump made the remarks at a White House event with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

“We’re looking to get this done as soon as possible,” Trump said of Kavanaugh’s nomination, according to a pool report. “It’s a process, speaking for all of the Republicans, we want to give everybody a chance to say what they want to say.”

According to the president, his nominee is “anxious” to speak to Congress about the allegations.

“I haven’t wanted to speak to Judge Kavanaugh… specifically because I thought it was not a good idea not too,” Trump added. “I’m totally supportive, I’m very supportive.”

Trump also suggested that he would not allow the FBI to vet the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh.

“I don’t think the FBI should be involved because they don’t want to be involved,” he insisted.

The FBI is reportedly unable to look into the allegations because the White House has not ordered the agency to do so.

President Donald Trump seems to be waffling on whether or not he wants a war in Iran. As it stands, he seems to be against it, pulling back on a military strike that would have killed 150 people and most certainly begun another Middle Eastern war.

In a report from the Washington Post, leaders from policy to politics are telling the president to get it together. The "freewheeling" style of politics may have been a quirky style, but now it's putting the United States in a difficult position.

Conservative columnist tells Trump make good on his threats with Iran or ‘shut up’

Published

President Donald Trump appeared to back down last week when it came to an attack on Iran after an oil tanker was allegedly fired upon and the country shot down a U.S. drone during surveillance.

Republicans and even Trump himself has mocked former President Barack Obama for drawing a "red line" for Syria but being unwilling to act further. In Obama's case, the president saw the country cross the red line and asked Congress to give him a declaration of war. Republicans refused at the time.
