Allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would be "laughed out of court" for being so thin, National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy, a former U.S. District Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said Monday.
"You wouldn't even come into court with anything like this," McCarthy told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," adding that Democrats are using the claims being made now by two women against Kavanaugh to delay his confirmation proceedings.
"The message is to every single conservative that if you try to crash our party, this is what we're going to do to you," said McCarthy. "This is about the ideological bent of the Supreme Court, maybe for the next generation, and they are going to fight this tooth and nail to prevent Kavanaugh from being in that seat."
The accusations from California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were high school students in the 1980s, and Deborah Ramirez, who says the nominee was sexually inappropriate with her while they were at Yale University, are "not prosecutable," said McCarthy.
Even if they were, he added, a background investigation is not done to develop evidence to prosecute someone, but to provide information for the Senate.
"What we have here is one of the most qualified nominees ever been up for one of these seats," said McCarthy. "They have more than enough information to decide whether he is qualified to fill the seat or not."
