An attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford fired back at President TrumpDonald TrumpFormer New York state Senate candidate charged in riot Trump called acting attorney general almost daily to push election voter fraud claim: report GOP senator clashes with radio caller who wants identity of cop who shot Babbitt MORE on Tuesday after the president mocked Ford's testimony concerning her allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Michael Bromwich, who sat beside Ford and her other attorney at last Thursday's hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, called the president a "profile in cowardice" Tuesday night after Trump took aim at Ford during a rally in Mississippi.


"A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well?" Bromwich asked Tuesday.

"She is a remarkable profile in courage. He is a profile in cowardice," the attorney added.

Bromwich's comments were in response to Trump's impression of his client at the rally, during which the president appeared to mock Ford's memory loss surrounding the alleged sexual assault. 

"What neighborhood was it in?" Trump said to a cheering crowd Tuesday, doing a mocking impression of Ford at the hearing. " 'I don't know.' Where's the house? 'I don't know.' Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? 'I don't know, but I had one beer. That's the only thing I remember.' "

At the same rally, Trump cast doubt on another woman who has accused Kavanaugh of misconduct, Julie Swetnick, whose appearance on NBC News earlier Tuesday raised new questions about her allegations.

"Did you see that interview?" Trump said of Swetnick at the rally. "This woman had no clue what was going on. No clue. Yet she made the most horrible charges against a ... great father, great husband."

Kavanaugh has forcefully denied the allegations he faces, and is set for a vote on his nomination to the Supreme Court in the full Senate following the Judiciary panel's vote to advance the nomination among party lines on Friday.
