Ben Sasse Criticizes Kavanaugh ‘Media Circus,’ Praises #MeToo Movement on Senate Floor

‘Senate is not at all well prepared to handle allegations of sexual harassment and assault that might have come forward’

RUSH EXCERPT: 

SASSE: “Although I’ve said many complimentary things about Judge Kavanaugh and his 12 years of record on the D.C. Circuit court, I will say that I urged the president back in June and early July to make a different choice before he announced this nomination. I urged him to nominate a different individual. I urged the president to nominate a woman. Part of my argument then was that the very important #MeToo movement was also very new and that this Senate is not at all well prepared to handle allegations of sexual harassment and assault that might have come forward. This was absent knowing a particular nominee.”
