Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) spoke with Brian Kilmeade about the latest on the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh. Dr. Cassidy pushes back against the Democrats calling into question Judge Kavanaugh's temperament when being questioned about being an alleged rapist, saying Kavanaugh is the victim of a coordinated campaign to smear his reputation and his reaction shows he is a human being. When asked about pushing back after being confronted by an anti-Kavanaugh protester, Cassidy said the protester was not ready for his response and added, "By golly, if our country gets to the point where an accusation can destroy somebody which everyone who is there says isn't true, I can tell you that everybody in our country is subject to being destroyed and that is tyranny and we cannot tolerate tyranny." Senator Cassidy went on to say the protesters are all over the Capitol building and that, "It is time to push back. It is time to push back on people that think that uncorroborated accusations are enough to destroy a life lived above reproach." On Senator Jeff Flake saying he wouldn't have called for an additional FBI investigation into Judge Kavanaugh if he was running for re-election, Cassidy says, "Let's just say that you think if think something is right, and it's important you do it no matter what, including no matter what the electoral politics. Period, end of story."
Plus, Senator Cassidy on why the FBI report should remain confidential:
"I'm actually in favor of openness but I also recognize that people gave testimony thinking that their identity would be protected and it may be easy to read what they said and you would be able to figure out who they are. So I don't want to be like Diane, let me just put it this way, I don't want to be like some of the Democratic senators leaking things that they that they said that they would not leak. I would rather respect the confidentiality of people if they were told it would be held confidentially."
