Senator Schumer: (4:33 p.m.)

  • Spoke on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
    • "Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has come forward with a credible allegation that Judge Kavanaugh was guilty of sexual misconduct. I believe her, but regardless of what you believe, she deserves to be heard in a deliberate and impartial manner in a way that's dignified and respectful to both sides and to her, with as much independently verified information gathered beforehand, and now, of course, there are additional allegations about Judge Kavanaugh's actions that should be examined. There's one simple way to get to the bottom of this, without the he said, she said, without the finger pointing and name calling. A quiet, serious, thorough background check by the F.B.I. That's the logical way to go."
