Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday decried the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh as "extraordinarily unfair" to the Supreme Court nominee.
"You presume that in the background investigation this did not come up, and so that also tells you something maybe about the thoroughness of the FBI investigation or maybe about the credibility of these allegations – we don't know," Christie told ABC's "Good Morning America."
He added Ford is "certainly going to have to be interviewed . . . That's probably going to have to happen at a minimum."
Palo Alto University professor Christine Blaséy Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were high school students in the early 1980s, first in a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and then in an interview with The Washington Post.
"I think the other thing that we would talk about – and obviously the professor here needs to be heard, needs to have her allegations looked at – but also this is extraordinarily unfair to Judge Kavanaugh," Christie said. "This is an allegation that's 35-plus years old and now you're going to attempt to try to deal with that in a very truncated period of time.
"This is why people are reluctant to get in front of those committees, and sit down for Senate confirmation. Because this kind of bloodletting . . . the bloodletting is on both sides, unfortunately, in situations like this."
