Ted Lieu: Kavanaugh Is ‘Unfit for the Court’ Because He Believes in Conspiracy Theories

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Live,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) said Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh was “unfit for the court” because his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee showed he believes in conspiracy theories.

Lieu said, “They are basically saying they don’t believe Dr. Ford’s testimony. She was 100% sure was Brett Kavanaugh. When people say there is no evidence for this, that makes no sense. We routinely in America have trials that are determined based on testimonial evidence under oath. Her testimony is evidence. In addition, there is a lot of things that corroborate her testimony. Mark Judge is a friend of Brett Kavanaugh, and they both drink a lot, they were both in the same area and had social gatherings where they interacted. There are a lot of corroborations. She mentioned it also in 2012 and 2013. She is not a left-wing Clinton conspiracy so for Brett Kavanaugh brought that up shows why he is unfit for the court.”

He added, “You have to watch his testimony in front of the U.S. Senate to know that he is very partisan. Beyond that, he believes in conspiracy theories. That is a problem. When you see Dr. Ford’s testimony, it’s very clear she is not part of some vast left-wing conspiracy. She was assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh. She told people in 2012 and 2013 and for him to think she is part of a conspiracy makes me question what kind of impartiality he can show on the U.S. Supreme Court.”
