Hume on Female Interrogator: Dems 'Want to See a Bunch of Old White Guys' Questioning Kavanaugh Accuser
Brit Hume said Tuesday that the Democrats' concerns over Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans assigning a female outside counsel to question Christine Blasey Ford is about optics, not truth-seeking.
Hume said there is "considerable precedent" to have an outside attorney question a witness, though it is not usually how hearings proceed.
"This is obviously all about the politics of appearances," he said. "They want to have a woman questioning a woman."
All 11 Republican members of the committee are men, while four of the 10 Democrats on the panel are women.
"The Democrats on the other side... want a bunch of white guys playing victim," Hume said. "This is really not about fact-finding at this point."
Hume said he did not know who the Republicans' outside interrogator is, or whether she will be effective or not.
