CNN Reporter Claims It’s ‘VERY Dangerous’ To Ask For Facts And Evidence Supporting Anti-Kavanaugh Allegations

Chris Cillizza said it's ‘VERY dangerous’ for people to ask for clarifying details about the allegation of sexual assault.

A CNN reporter tweeted that it’s “VERY dangerous” for people to ask questions about the allegation of sexual assault made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Yes, seriously. A reporter — whose job it is to ask questions and get to the bottom of a story — is now saying that asking questions about an accusation is problematic. Republican Sen. John Conryn asked Tuesday for more details missing from Christine Ford’s accusation that Kavanaugh pinned her down on a bed and covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream while they were both in high school.

“The problem is, Dr. Ford can’t remember when it was, where it was, or how it came to be,” Cornyn said, according to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa. “There are some gaps there that need to be filled.”

In response, Chris Cillizza said asking these questions is “walking a VERY dangerous line.”

Cillizza also tweeted that President Trump had told the FBI to ignore the allegations made against Kavanaugh — even though the FBI already issued a statement last week saying they had passed the information along to the White House and would not be investigating it.

The Department of Justice clarified Monday the FBI would not be getting involved in the allegations against Kavanaugh, because it “does not involve any potential federal crime.”
