Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz said Monday on Outnumbered Overtime that the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh will tear the country apart.

Chaffetz said that the Democratic push to block Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court at all costs shows "what they're up to."

Many high-profile Republicans have publicly stated they believe the FBI probe is a tactic to delay and ultimately stop Kavanaugh from sitting on the high court.

"I think the Democrats are overplaying their hand. The resistance movement, this 'scorched-Earth' that they promised and they want, they're getting," he said.

Chaffetz, a former Utah congressman, also said it'd be fair to call for a probe into how the Democrats handled the Kavanaugh hearings.

"I do think the Senate investigators can quietly have those discussions with Ms. Ford," he said. "I also think that her attorneys are in jeopardy of having some referral to the Bar Association."

He said he was bothered that Democrats said they needed more information about Kavanaugh, but didn't ask him directly during last week's hearings.

"I think it's a game, it's a ruse. I think people see through it," he said.
