It is one thing to believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's statements of sexual assault and have sympathy for her, but that is not enough to derail Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court and destroy his reputation, and Thursday's "circus" of a hearing didn't change matters, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who was present during the hearing, said Friday.
"They could have asked the FBI to do a quick interview weeks ago," Fitton told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "Since the corruption of the Democratic side here was exposed you had, and, you know, we have to remember they are also pushing out false allegations that came out subsequently against Judge Kavanaugh that were absurd on their face."
Had the process gone through like Democrats wanted it to, it would have "ruined the Senate," as allegations were raised without evidence, said Fitton, but the hearing should have been held in private.
Both Kavanaugh and Ford were "abused," by the hearing, added Fitton, and the Senate owes Kavanaugh an apology, and "the best apology would be to confirm him as quickly as possible."
The hearing did nothing to change the judge's eventual confirmation, Fitton said, labeling the proceedings as a "circus."
"So despite the torture, and it was torture and it was really unethical what the Senate Democrats put him through in league with their leftist allies, it looks like Judge Kavanaugh will be the next Supreme Court justice by the middle of next week," said Fitton.
