Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway Thursday morning lambasted Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee for their push against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling their actions "hyperpartisanship" coming from "hypocritical, hapless Democrats" who want to destroy him.
"They are mad that the swing vote on the United States Supreme Court could be taken over by a Donald Trump appointee," Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "That's what this is about. I would have more respect for them if they said 'I don't like the way he combs his hair' than coming in at the 12th hour with this."
She said the Democrats on the committee have "put on such spectacle and circus" even before Christine Blasey Ford made her accusations that he'd sexually assaulted her.
Ford did not want to be publicly identified with her claims, but Democrats "smoked her out" and leaked her identity said Conway, and if it was not for Republicans on the Senate committee, she may not have gotten to testify.
Meanwhile, Kavanaugh has remained willing to testify, again and again, and has been held waiting for 11 days, said Conway.
Conway also spoke out about Kavanaugh's latest accuser, a woman represented by Michael Avenatti and claiming the nominee was involved in parties in the 1980s when girls were being gang-raped.
"I would tell that woman go march down to the Montgomery County Courthouse today and file your claim...sex crimes have no statute of limitations in Maryland," said Conway.
