Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Wednesday blasted an Instagram post by Donald Trump Jr. that mocked Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual-assault allegations. “This is sickening. No one should make light of this situation,” the senator wrote on Twitter. On Sunday, Trump Jr. posted a meme with a photo of a crayon-written letter that reads: “Hi Cindy, will you be my girlfriend.” Underneath the question are two boxes for checking “yes” or “no,” and it’s signed “Love Brett.” “Oh boy... the Dems and their usual nonsense games really have him on the ropes now,” Trump Jr. wrote in the caption. “Finestein had the letter in July and saved it for the eve of his vote... honorable as always. I believe this is a copy for full transparency.” Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote was set for Thursday but has been cancelled. The Senate Judiciary Committee invited Kavanaugh and Ford to testify at a public hearing on Monday, but Ford’s lawyers asked the committee to conduct the hearing after a full FBI investigation into the alleged incident is complete. The committee has since indicated it is pressing forward with the hearing, giving Ford a deadline this week to submit her materials.
