"I've been very clear that I make no excuses for anybody who engages in this kind of behavior," Hirono said.

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) spent all of 10 seconds answering a question about allegations of domestic abuse against Democratic National Committee (DNC) Vice Chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) before pivoting to attacking Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday.

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Hirono why Democrats aren’t condemning Ellison over allegations made by his ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan that he emotionally and domestically abused her during their relationship.

It should be noted that Monahan has produced evidence that Ellison abused her during their relationship including a doctor’s report.

“I’ve been very clear that I make no excuses for anybody who engages in this kind of behavior and as far as Keith Ellison, these allegations need to be investigated and appropriate action taken,” Hirono said.

Hirono then shifted to attacking Kavanaugh over allegations that he attempted to sexually assault Christine Blasey Ford three decades ago when they were teenagers at a high school party. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.

Hirono’s answer regarding Ellison lasted 10 seconds but then spent well over a minute attacking Kavanaugh over unfounded allegations of sexually assault.
