Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who alleges Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were both in high school, has “nothing to gain” with her claims, Sen. Kamala Harris, said Tuesday, and she believes her.
“I think it’s going to be about, it comes down to credibility,” the California Democrat, a key member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told “CBS This Morning.”
“It is going to about listening to what each party has to say, but I believe her.”
The committee was to have held its vote to forward Kavanaugh for a Senate vote on Thursday, but that has been delayed until after Monday, when he and Ford will testify instead after members from both parties said they should have the opportunity to present their side.
It takes an “extraordinary amount of courage” to testify before the Senate against a Supreme Court nominee, said Harris. “She’s doing it because she knows this is an important matter, it’s a serious matter who serves on that court and she has the courage to come forward, she has nothing to gain.”
Harris also called on a more complete FBI investigation into the federal judge following the allegations he faces.
“The American public wants to know, are we about to put someone on the United States Supreme Court who committed a sexual assault?” Harris said. “I believe that the FBI should be compelled to do its job in terms of completing their background investigation and that’s not being done.”
