The former secretary state and Democratic presidential nominee said she is unsure how the impact of this confirmation will play out, but she expects it to fall along party lines.
“The president has been true to form,” she said. “He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign, really for many years leading up to the campaign, and he’s continued to do inside the White House.”
Justice Kavanaugh invoked the Clintons while delivering a fiery defense at a Senate hearing into the sexual assault allegations against him. He suggested the allegations were orchestrated by Democrats, in part as “revenge” for his role in the Ken Starr investigation into former President Bill Clinton.
“Hillary never got it. That’s why she lost,” he told reporters in the Oval Office.
