Behar: Kavanaugh 'Probably Guilty' But 'Old, White Men' in Senate Protecting Him
Dana Loesch pushes back on 'Fox & Friends.'
Dana Loesch called out Joy Behar for declaring that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is “probably guilty” of a decades-old sexual assault allegation and claiming that “old," "white men” on the Senate Judiciary Committee are protecting him.
“These white men, old by the way, are not protecting women,” Behar said on "The View" Wednesday. “They’re protecting a man who is probably guilty.”
California professor Christine Blasey Ford has claimed Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both high school students in the early 1980s.
It's been unclear if she's willing to testify on Capitol Hill because she's asked the FBI to investigate the incident first – which would delay a possible hearing.
Behar urged Kavanaugh to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence, saying, “Let’s see that from you, or are you a coward?”
On "Fox & Friends" Thursday, Loesch noted that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat on the judiciary committee, received a letter from Ford detailing the assault allegations, but Feinstein sat on the letter for much of Kavanaugh's confirmation process.
"It wasn't old, white men that for six weeks sat on the accusation from this particular individual, Dr. Ford, it wasn't old, white men that kept it quiet and did nothing to verify the claims or to investigate or even reach out and comfort the accuser," Loesch said.
She said Democrats have been "absolutely atrocious" in their handling of Ford's claims, because they're playing politics.
Loesch noted that some Democratic lawmakers have accused Republicans of a "rush job" on Kavanaugh's confirmation process.
"It's not a rush job to sit on it for six and to not investigate, to not reach out, and then suddenly demand that everybody move," she said.
She added that Democrats have been reluctant to investigate allegations of domestic abuse against Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), deputy of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
"For a party that claims to protect women, here's a woman that came forward with medical records and really reputable claims and a lot of corroboration to back it up. And yet, I've heard nothing about protecting women from this party where it concerns the accuser of Keith Ellison," Loesch said.
