Members of the Senate need to weigh the evidence coming in from both sides when it comes to evaluating the growing claims being made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise said Monday.
"At some point, you need to look at all the women who have come forward to defend Judge Kavanaugh, to speak up for his integrity and the kind of man he is," the Louisiana Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
One must also balance out the claims made by Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti, who says he has has a client who claims to have information on Kavanaugh, said Scalise.
"People see what's happening on the other side where they're trying to delay and delay, and Senate Democrats on the committee might have even encouraged or knew some of this stuff and never said anything about it," said Scalise. "Again look at all of the women who have come forward that have known Judge Kavanaugh his entire life, high school and college days, and speak for his integrity and how good and high quality of a man he is."
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has been "more than fair" in allowing people to come forward, said Scalise, but the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh started just a few weeks ago.
"Let's not just leave somebody out there like a pinata for anybody with a political agenda to come forward," he added. "You have to weigh all of the evidence that strongly says that Judge Kavanaugh is the right person to be on the Supreme Court."
