Hirono: Kavanaugh Can’t be Fair Because of ‘Ideological Agenda’

Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono told CNN’s State of the Union Sunday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s “outcome-driven” conservative judicial philosophy directly undermines the credibility of his denials that he sexually assaulted California professor Christine Ford at a house party 36 years ago.

“His credibility is already very questionable in my mind,” said Hirono. “When I say that he’s very outcome-driven, he has an ideological agenda, and I can sit here and talk to you about some of the cases that exemplify his, in my view, inability to be fair.” She cited his being “very much against women’s reproductive choice” as one of “many indications of lack of credibility.”
