Senate Judiciary Committee Member John N. Kennedy said Monday on "The Story" to those who think the investigations into Judge Brett Kavanaugh are aimed at truth-seeking: "You ought to put down the bong."

Martha MacCallum played new video of Julie Swetnick, the Kavanaugh accuser being represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, who claimed the judge attended "gang rape" parties in the early 1980s.

"This entire thing makes me want to heave," Kennedy said. "If you think this is about searching for the truth, you ought to put down the bong."

Kennedy said Democrats and those helping the activist opposition to Kavanaugh are "about gamesmanship" and political power.

"[There's] no corroboration," he said of Swetnick's story. "She said that she attended ten gang rapes at which Judge Kavanaugh was supposedly involved. She didn't report any of them."

Kennedy also expressed incredulity at Swetnick's counsel, Avenatti: "[He] does his dead level best to make all of this about Mr. Avenatti."

Kennedy said he is not sure what will come out of the FBI investigation supported by Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.), also on the committee.

He called Coons a good friend, but said he doubts the Delaware lawmaker will vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

Kennedy said the only way to make Democrats' happy "is to put [Kavanaugh] down and dig up Bill Douglas and nominate him."

Justice William O. Douglas, nominated by President Franklin Roosevelt, was the longest-serving justice in history, spending more than 36 years on the high court, where he was widely considered a liberal voice.
