Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who sparred with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh at his Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday over the issue of drinking alcohol, said Friday that if she were appearing before him in court and acted as he did toward her, "he would have thrown me out."
"The point, he is, he did apologize later, publicly, to me, which I appreciate," the Minnesota Democrat told NBC's "Today."
"Still, the problem for me is, he really didn't answer the question about if there have been incidences where he didn't partially remember what happened."
During the hearing, Klobuchar had said she understands alcohol abuse, as her father is an alcoholic, and asked Kavanaugh if he'd ever blacked out while drinking. He argued back, "have you?"
Klobuchar said she does not know if Kavanaugh will be confirmed.
"This is in the hands of really two of my colleagues, Senator Collins and Senator Murkowski," she said. "I believe that if they listen to this incredibly graceful, dignified woman yesterday, it's hard to not at least say open up the FBI investigation.”
She said she also thinks the FBI should question Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the room when Kavanaugh had attacked her.
"She was willing to come forward, not to just a jury box of strangers…for the nation," said Klobuchar. "At least give her that moment to get these witnesses interviewed. And why are they shutting it down? I believe it’s because they're trying to hide something.”
