Senate Judiciary Committee member Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) strongly believes the Democrats, if they win one or more seats in Congress, will start an investigation into Brett Kavanaugh.
Whitehouse stated, “[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.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper 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?”
