A lawyer representing Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, says her client was "upset" after seeing President TrumpDonald John TrumpFive takeaways from the Democratic debate As Buttigieg rises, Biden is still the target Leading Democrats largely pull punches at debate MORE mock her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

“She was upset by it. It was very hurtful, as it would be to any woman," Lisa Banks said in an interview with CNN on Friday. "Any survivor who had the courage to come forward only to be mocked and belittled by anyone really, but certainly by the president of the United States, it was very upsetting. It was very hurtful.”

Banks added that she doesn't think Ford has any regrets regarding her decision to come forward publicly about her allegations against Kavanaugh.

Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her while the two were at a high school party in 1982.

Kavanaugh has fiercely denied the accusation, and both appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week in a dramatic, rollercoaster hearing.

Trump on Tuesday mocked Ford's testimony while speaking at a rally in Mississippi, imitating some of her responses at the hearing. 

"How did you get home?" Trump said to laughter and applause. " 'I don't remember.' How'd you get there? 'I don't remember.' Where is the place? 'I don't remember.' How many years ago was it? 'I don't know.' "

"What neighborhood was it in?" he continued, as the crowd cheered and clapped. " '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.' "

The FBI released a report on its investigation into Kavanaugh earlier this week. GOP senators said that it showed Ford's claims could not be corroborated. 

Democrats have blasted the days-long investigation, calling it inadequate. Ford's attorneys have also called the investigation a "stain" on the bureau.

"An FBI investigation that did not include interviews of Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh is not a meaningful investigation in any sense of the word," the attorneys wrote in a statement on Friday.

On Friday, the Senate voted to end debate on Kavanaugh's confirmation. The vote was followed by announcements that Sens.
