CNN’s chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said women always lose in the United States Senate, while he was discussing Christine Blasey Ford on “New Day” Friday.
Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a party in high school over 35 years ago and told the Senate Judiciary Committee she thought he was going to rape her, or accidentally kill her during the alleged attack.
“The rule in the United States Senate is the woman always loses. And she’s probably going to lose here,” Toobin said. (RELATED: CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin Says New Kavanaugh Allegations Could Be ‘All Lies’ But Have A ‘Ring Of Truth’)
“Can you imagine if she behaved the way he behaved? If ranting and raving and taunting the senators and asking them what they drink — imagine this woman or any woman going before the United States Senate and behaving that way?” he continued.
Toobin accused Republicans of giving Kavanaugh a pass.
“I mean, you know, she told the story. And no one, even the senators, even the Republican senators really seemed to challenge it. But I think the answer is, they don’t care,” he concluded.
“They’re going to get somebody on the court who will overturn Roe v. Wade, who will allow corporations to do what they want under Citizens United and other decisions. They don’t care what kind of person he is,” he said. “That is the only message you could get from yesterday’s proceeding.”
