Dem Sen Durbin: ‘Too Fast’ to Hear Kavanaugh Accuser This Week — ‘It’s a Generation Decision’

During an appearance Monday on CNN’s “New Day,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) reacted to President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations, saying this week would be “too fast” to hear from his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

Durbin said the Judiciary Committee will have to “be fair” to both Kavanaugh and Ford, adding that it would be too quick this week to have Ford testify because of the importance of a SCOTUS confirmation.

“Let’s do this the right way, a thoughtful way,” Durbin stated. “It’s a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. It’s a generation decision.”
