The Senator who holds a critical and pivotal vote for Republicans on Brett Kavanaugh may just have moved closer to opposing him after President Donald Trump's Friday morning tweet attacking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford by name.

"I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents", Trump tweeted on Friday. Trump wrote on Twitter.

The president reiterated that unusual question Friday morning on Twitter: "The radical left lawyers want the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get involved NOW". Collins make a rare move to chastise the president, she "appeared to offer support for Ford, who has said Kavanaugh tried to sexually assault her 36 years ago when they were both in high school".

Trump's tweet prompted hundreds of people to share exactly why they did not report their rapes and assaults.

According to the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), two out of every three sexual assaults are not reported to the police. "They said 'Oh, he's a nice old man, that's not what he meant, '" tweeted activist Ashley Judd, one of dozens of women who accused Harvey Weinstein of harassment. I told the first adults I came upon.

Before engaging Friday morning, he blasted his political nemeses for accepting Ford's story at face value no matter the consequences.

Others shared that even after they came forward, they received blame instead of help.

Ford told the Washington Post that she didn't tell anyone about her alleged assault at the time, anxious that she might get in trouble for being at a party with underage drinking.

"I was dismissed, disparaged, & I still get blamed", she said.

"I say let her say what she has to say and let's see how it all comes out", Trump told said inside a Las Vegas arena before his scheduled rally.

"A person who is terrified during some life-threatening, traumatic event tends to experience a surge of stress hormones that tend to render the experience very memorable, very vivid", Harvard psychology professor Richard McNally says.
