President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday that he feels “so badly” for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who’s been accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school. “I feel so badly for him that he’s going through this to be honest with you... This is not a man that deserves this,” Trump said in an East Room press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda. “It should have been bought up long ago.” Trump also remarked that the FBI has performed “six background checks over the years as Judge Kavanaugh has gone beautifully up a ladder,” and lauded his nominee as an “incredible individual” with “great intellect” and an “impeccable history in every way.” Earlier Tuesday, Trump said that he did not “think the FBI should be involved” in the allegations. The Senate Judiciary Committee has invited Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, to testify at a public hearing on Monday. Ford has yet to agree to testify, according to Politico.
