Senator Thom Tillis went after Senate Judiciary Democrats for refusing to participate in the Republicans’ investigation in the allegations of sexual misconduct levied against Brett Kavanaugh during his testimony in front of the committee on Thursday.
“We were moving heaven and Earth and even moving the schedule to get to the truth. We are doing an investigation. We’re doing our best. I hope that the American people who are watching this will go out to the Senate judiciary website and take a look at this chronology. Take a look at the lack of investigation on the part of the people who want the investigation, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Every opportunity you have to go and question a witness, every opportunity that we’ve had to find more truth and to find more facts, we have done it. It’s documented. We’ve got sworn statements. We are doing our job, we’re doing the committee work.”

“I would tell you to pound the table with your ranking member and leadership on your side to say, why didn’t we ask questions? Why didn’t we listen in and defer? Why didn’t we do our part in the investigation while this leader did everything he could to accommodate Dr. Ford and to run down every single lead that has been presented to us. Weeks after it was known to the minority.”
