(Newser) – Three senators on Wednesday publicly criticized President Trump's imitation of Christine Blasey Ford on Tuesday night, and they're senators who matter. GOP Sens. Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski, all "critical Republican swing votes," as CNN puts it, shared their reaction to Trump's account of Ford responding "I don't remember" to questions about the alleged assault by Brett Kavanaugh. Their reaction and others, and more on the FBI investigation into Ford's claims.

  • While on the Today show, Flake said, "There's no time and no place for remarks like that. To discuss something this sensitive at a political rally is just not right. It's just not right. I wish he hadn't had done it. It's kind of appalling."
  • Collins spoke with CNN, saying the comments "were just plain wrong."
