Tucker Carlson said he believes Judge Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is being sincere in her allegation of sexual assault, but that the elements surrounding the publicizing of the claim are purely political.

Carlson said that the point of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) raising the initially anonymous accusation from 1982 was a ploy to "derail" Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing.

Palo Alto, Calif. Professor Christine Blasey Ford alleged Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party in Bethesda, Md. 36 years ago.

"This story doesn't have anything to do with justice," Carlson said, adding that to Democrats, it's all "about abortion."

"Some of the very people suggesting Kavanaugh is a sex criminal defended Bill Clinton when he was credibly accused of rape," Carlson said.

Retired nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick alleged Clinton raped her in Little Rock, Ark. in the 1970s.

"The same group practically beatified [late Massachusetts Sen.] Ted Kennedy," Carlson said.

On July 18, 1969, an allegedly inebriated Kennedy drove into a pond on Chappaquiddick Island, Mass. Political aide Mary Jo Kopechne, who was in the car with him, died in the crash.

Carlson said that Kennedy and Clinton supported abortion in nearly all cases, so the left ignored their situations and "treated them like heroes."

"Kavanaugh may not support Roe v. Wade, therefore he must be destroyed... The larger lesson of this moment is that the left will not abide losing power. Political power is personal power to them," he said.

Carlson warned that if the Democrats are able to derail Kavanaugh's nomination over 36-year-old allegations that cannot be proven true or proven false, they may never place another judge on the Supreme Court because a high "precedent" will be set.
