Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, slammed reporters on Thursday for their coverage of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which he described as “almost rock-bottom.”
"Now I would never use the word 'fake news.' I consider you folks the policemen for our Democratic system of government. But I want to show you where some of you have bias," Grassley said during a press conference with Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to CBS News.
"I've had demonstrators in my office for two weeks now ... and one time the people that were for Kavanaugh wanted to be interviewed and they said we're only interested in interviewing people against Kavanaugh," Grassley claimed, "that's a bias that none of you should be proud of."
He added, "this is almost rock-bottom. I would like to have the future of mending things so that we can do things in a collegial way that the U.S. Senate ought to do -- and particularly when it comes to the Supreme Court nomination.”
