Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) said on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show” that his Democratic colleagues have undermined due process norms with their handling of accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“The Democrats and the media have spent a lot of the last couple of years talking about undermining basic democratic norms – they should look in the mirror. Talk about undermining basic democratic norms of due process and the presumption of innocence,” Cotton said.
Kavanaugh has faced two allegations of sexual misconduct that, according to the accusers, occurred decades ago. Christine Blasey Ford told the Washington Post that Kavanaugh, then a junior in high school, attacked her when they were at a party in Maryland in the early 1980s. The other allegation is from a woman named Deborah Ramirez who accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself at a dorm party during his freshmen year at Yale.
