Nonetheless, Trump went on to claim that Ford's accusations had ruined Kavanaugh's life.
Five days after an extraordinary Senate hearing watched by millions of people in which a university professor, Christine Blasey Ford, detailed her sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh, Trump seemed to raise the issue of false accusations against men.
"I think the Federal Bureau of Investigation should do what they have to do to get to the answer", Trump said. "There have been a lot of people over the previous year that have lied to Congress, and to me that would not be acceptable". The president said it is "scary" because "you can be (found) guilty of something you may not be guilty of".
"I had one beer".
"All I can tell you is it came from somebody with a political motive", he said.
"I believe Judge Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court very soon", Graham said in a statement.
"It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of", Trump told reporters outside the White House.
"When President Trump was elected, she made it her mission to obstruct the administration's agenda".
"Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory, and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to questioners", the letter reads. You could be someone that was flawless your whole life, and somebody else could accuse you of something. "'I don't remember, '" Trump said, mocking Ford's voice. "'I had one beer, '" he began. "And a man's life is in tatters".
Officials said Trump is seeking to boost Hyde-Smith as close as possible to the 50 percent threshold and lend momentum for a possible runoff.
Exactly. What is the world coming to when a young, rich, entitled man can't get drunk and attempt to rape his class mates without it coming back to haunt him when he's applying for one of the most powerful jobs in the US?
But earlier, the Senate Democratic leader claimed there was "mounting evidence that Judge Kavanaugh is just not credible".
Another woman, Julie Swetnick, has alleged that in the 1980s she witnessed Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Mark Judge, try to ply teenage girls with alcohol at wild parties where girls were sexually abused.
"What's happening here has more to do than even the appointment of a Supreme Court justice", Trump said, adding he hopes the Senate votes later this week to confirm Kavanaugh as the high court's ninth justice.
