Conway on Kavanaugh Accusations: The Dems 'Had Every Chance to Do It the Right Way'
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday on "Special Report" that Democrats had "every chance" to put forward allegations of assault against Judge Brett Kavanaugh "the right way."
Conway said that President Trump finds it "unfair" that Kavanaugh has to "go through th[ese]" allegations at this time.
Palo Alto University Prof. Christine Ford alleged Kavanaugh forced himself on her at a Bethesda, Md. party in 1982.
The allegations were initially anonymous when they were handled by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Conway said Kavanaugh wants to testify Monday at a hearing scheduled by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa).
"He categorically and unequivocally denies that these allegations are true," she said, adding that Ford apparently did not want to be named publicly and was identified only after her claim was leaked to the media.
Conway noted Feinstein knew of these allegations since July but did not act on them. She said Kavanaugh responded to nearly 1,300 written questions and that "one million pieces of paper" were put forward on his behalf.

She said Democrats, including Feinstein, had over 30 hours of hearings in which they could have mentioned the allegations.
Conway said it appears the situation is another example of how Democrats "will not vote for any Supreme Court justice nominee that President Trump would put forward."
