Willie Geist on Kavanaugh: ‘There Will Be an Asterisk Next To His Name as Long’ as on the Supreme Court

‘I think it was extraordinary on many fronts’


GEIST: "But I think there are so many people behaving so badly right now, there’s so much willful dishonesty, there are so many people who have made up their minds and there are people on the right who are saying she’s a liar, she’s making this up. You have no idea. We don’t know the facts. There are people on the other side that are saying he’s a liar, he’s making up his side of the story. You have no idea, you don’t have all the facts. And that’s why I’ve said, what Martha asked to Judge Kavanaugh there is a central question. If you’re Judge Kavanaugh, wouldn’t you want an independent body in the FBI to take a look at this, to clear this? Because if they go through a Senate hearing and it becomes a circus, they push it through, he passes, he’s seated on the Supreme Court, there will be, as we've said last week, an asterisk next to his name as long as he’s there.”
