Whitehouse: ‘Confident’ Dems Will Investigate Kavanaugh if They Re-Take Congress

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senate Judiciary Committee member Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) expressed confidence that if Democrats win back one or more chambers of Congress, they will investigate the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, even if Kavanaugh is on the Supreme Court. Whitehouse said, “[E]ven if they were to ram this guy through, as soon as Democrats get gavels, we’re going to want to get to the bottom of this. You can’t ignore a crime victim’s claim that something happened, refuse to investigate, throw her up into the stand without the least bit of support for her, without the least bit of effort to corroborate what she says, and then walk away from that as if you’ve behaved at all properly. There isn’t a prosecutor or a victim advocate in the country who would tolerate that.” Host Jake Tapper then asked, “[I]f the Democrats win back the House and/or the Senate, Democrats will investigate what happened, the charges that Professor Ford is laying out, even if that means investigating a Supreme Court justice at the time?” Whitehouse responded, “I am confident of that, and I think we’ll also be investigating why the FBI stood down its background investigation when

Boxer: 27 Years Later GOP Men Handling Ford ‘Worse Than They Handled Anita Hill’

Thursday on MSNBC’s “Live,” former Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said Republicans in the Senate were handling Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, “worse than” Republicans’ handling of Anita Hill’s accusations during the confirmation hearing for Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991. Boxer said, “We are facing another moment in our history that we faced with Anita Hill. Anita Hill got no justice and we got a justice who is still sitting on that bench with a cloud over his head and he votes against women’s rights time after time. I would just answer your question this way, regardless of what happens, what we see is that the Republicans in the United States Senate have learned nothing in 27 years.” She continued, “If you look at the membership on that committee, four out of ten members on the Democratic side are women. Zero, zero out of 11 are women.  There are no women on their side.
