Brzezinski on Kavanaugh: Dems Keep Moving Goal Post in Impossible Direction

"But if she doesn’t want to speak, if she doesn’t want to testify, you have to wonder what the Republicans are supposed to do except demand a vote."

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski criticized Senate Democrats on Wednesday for continuing to move the goal post “in an impossible direction” on the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and said Republicans should “demand a vote” on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

The panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” was discussing Christine Blasey Ford’s request to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee only after an FBI investigation into her accusation that Judge Kavanaugh sexual assaulted her at a party in the 1980s.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, and claims to have not even been at the party in question.

“Nobody wants to be on the wrong side of this. So everyone said let her speak, let her testify. Give her a moment to have her voice. Let’s hear her story. I think she even said she would testify,” Brzezinski said.

“I guess some could argue, and some Republicans could argue, this is moving the goal post and it’s moving the goal post in an impossible direction,” Brzezinski said. “There are statutes of limitations for a reason. So we need to hear from her. That’s why everybody is open to hearing from a woman.”

“But if she doesn’t want to speak, if she doesn’t want to testify, you have to wonder what the Republicans are supposed to do except demand a vote,” Brzezinski added. “This is something that happened in high school. This is going to need her voice. There’s no other way around it. No one can do it for her.”
