‘There Were Real Core Problems With Her Story’: Ben Sasse Doubles Down on His Support for Kavanaugh on ‘The View’

Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) reaffirmed his support for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, despite a tough line of questioning from the hosts of “The View.”

Host Joy Behar pressed Sasse on his decision to cast a vote in favor of Kavanaugh. The senator explained that, although he believed that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford may be a victim of sexual assault at some point in her life, she failed to provide evidence that could corroborate her story.

Sasse first explained that he is supportive of the MeToo movement and is empathetic toward Dr. Ford.

Watch:

“The Me Too movement is really important. I believe we have a culture of sexual violence in the country and the Me Too movement is doing all sorts of thing to draw attention to that and I’m very glad it’s happened. When someone comes forward and makes an accusation, they need to be heard. I fought to delay the Senate vote so we could do more to investigate this. She needed to be heard, either in public or private and I believe that she is hurting.”

Although Sasse sympathized with Ford, he fought back when Behar and host Sunny Hostin tried to corner him for his vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Sen. Sasse: There’s a lot about her story, including the four people she placed at the event who say the event didn’t happen.

Behar: Well, they didn’t remember it.

Sen. Sasse: Some of them said more than that.

Behar: They were drunk. The rest of them were drinking, also.

Sen. Sasse: I mean, Joy, there’s probably a lot of things you and I are going to differ on. I agree with you in the last segment when you said what’s wrong with our politics is we start by just saying what we’re against instead of what we’re for. We’re probably not going to agree on this particular vote, but I think the thing we should agree on is that the MeToo Movement is bigger than Republicans and Democrats. It’s bigger than politics.

[…]

Behar: If [the accusations are] all true, we’re stuck with him for the rest of his life. He’s very young for the Supreme Court. It’s a huge problem for this country.

Hostin: Did you not believe her testamony?

Sen. Sasse: Again, I believe she’s a victim and I believe that she’s hurting and I believe that she was terribly served by the whole way this thing played out as a circus. […] But there were real core problems with her story when the FBI went and did more investigation.

Sasse was clearly confident in his decision to vote in favor of Kavanaugh, even if the ladies of “The View” were not fans of the vote.

Chritine ford is a lying ,drunken slut. She made the thing up with the help of feinstein and others. She had issues with Kavanaugh because he ignored her ad she wanted to part of his “clique” and he and his friends wouldnt give her the time of day. She felt she never got the attention or respect she deserved in high school and college. Her husband said she told him these things. Why did NONE of her family come forward to vouch for her character? They all know she is a lying nutjob.why was her social media and personal history… Read more »

Have you read or seen the play-film “The Crucible”? Based on the story about the witches of Salem? Here’s the story: Ladies without presenting any evidence would point a finger at someone they disliked and accuse them of a crime and then the townspeople would hang them or burn them at the stake? The Kavanaugh ordeal is akin to this story. Perhaps Dr. Ford, Ramirez and company were pointing fingers at a judge with an exemplary career so he’d burn at the stake. It seems clear to me that this circus was put together by the Democrats so they could… Read more »

Charge Ford, that was the real perjury. They wanted her to sound vulnerable but she overdid it. Intrepid you should be embarrassed believing a psych doc really speaks that way. So many holes in her story. None in his, you belong with Tge View crowd. That isn’t a compliment.

If Sasse believes that she was a victim but doesn’t believe that she knows who attacked her, then he don’t believe her at all.

Charge/convict Kavanaugh with perjury and let’s be done with this.
