POLL: Cornyn Questions Kavanaugh Accuser

Texas Senator John Cornyn says he is skeptical of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The one-time Texas Supreme Court Justice and Attorney General is one of the most respected members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he has questions about the credibility of Judge Kavanaugh's accusers...

"This is part of a concerted political campaign... Every Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee had already come out opposed to the nominee."

Cornyn specifically blasted California Democrat Dianne Feinstein for sitting on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's allegations for months, until she sprung them last week in hopes of delaying his confirmation until after the midterms. 

"We know that three people that Dr. Ford says were present during the time that she said that Judge Kavanaugh - as a 17-year old - tried to assault her; none of them could verify or confirm her allegation...  If an unconfirmed allegation against a man is made and presumed to be true, and disqualifies them from public service, I think that's a very dangerous situation for our country."

Cornyn stresses the committee needs to be fair to both Ford and Kavanaugh - and that means avoiding a presumption of guilt.  The Senator has not yet indicated which way he plans to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation.
