Donald Trump said yesterday that it would be “unfortunate” if the woman who has accused his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault did not testify before a U.S. Senate committee.

A university professor in California, Christine Blasey Ford, has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when both were high school students in suburban Maryland. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify. Ford’s lawyers said on Tuesday she would not appear. “Look, if she shows up and makes a credible showing, that will be very interesting, and we’ll have to make a decision. But I can only say this: he’s such an outstanding man – very hard for me to imagine that anything happened,” Trump told the press. “I really want to see her,” Trump said.

“I think he’s an extraordinary man. I think he’s a man of great intellect, as I’ve been telling you, and he had this unblemished record. This is a very tough thing for him and his family. And we want to get it over with,” the President of the United States said.
