Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said the controversy surrounding Brett Kavanaugh is a “charade” and he called for the Supreme Court nominee’s confirmation.
He accused Senate Democrats of trying anything to make sure Kavanaugh never sits on the high court.
Hatch, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the controversy was never about the allegation of sexual assault lodged against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.
"We’re starting to see arguments like the following: Even if Judge Kavanaugh is innocent, what he said at the hearing, and how he said it, is disqualifying," Hatch wrote in a column for The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.
“Having failed to bring down Judge Kavanaugh with unsubstantiated allegations of sexual abuse, his opponents are now trying to call into question his character in defending himself from those allegations.
“It’s the ultimate set-up job. If the initial charges don’t work, we’ll destroy him when he defends himself. The good judge is damned no matter what he does.”
He maintained Kavanaugh is a “good man and a good judge who doesn’t deserve this treatment.”
And Hatch added: “What he does deserve is confirmation. I for one have had enough of this charade.”
