Gillibrand: GOP Approach to Kavanaugh Allegations a ‘Sham’

Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York declared Wednesday that the Republican approach to the handling of sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh would result in a “sham hearing.”

“They are trying to create a sham hearing,” Gillibrand told CNN’s Jim Acosta on The Situation Room. Without first holding an FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh and getting witnesses to testify, the whole affair would amount to a “he said-she said” that was unfair to Ford.
