Bipartisan CNN Debate on Kavanaugh Investigation: Criminal Inquiry or Job Interview?

This morning, the FBI reported finished its investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. According to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, there was “No hint of misconduct” by Kavanaugh found in the FBI report. Grassley also said that “A presumption of innocence is how the American justice system works, and it should remain our guidepost in the Senate. Abandoning that principle would cut a sad path for the Senate as an institution.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said he plans to bring the Kavanaugh confirmation to a procedural vote tomorrow--a pathway that could open up to a possible a confirmation vote this weekend.

Yet Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) disagreed, saying on Twitter that “It is impossible to take this [FBI] investigation seriously when so many key witnesses—including Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford—were not interviewed and constraints were imposed on what was asked and who was spoken to … This investigation does a disservice to Dr. Ford, who gave such powerful and credible testimony, other sexual assault survivors including Deborah Ramirez, and the American public who expected the FBI would be permitted to conduct a genuine fact-finding investigation.”

On CNN, I was reunited with my friend , an author and progressive CNN contributor famous for her TED Talks on empathizing and finding common ground with your political foes. Kohn joined us on Bold TV recently to discuss her book,“The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity.”

She and I disagreed--shocking--about whether the allegations around Judge Kavanaugh were a criminal inquiry (my position) or a job interview (her position). What do you think? Watch our CNN debate below:
