CNN's KFILE reported that Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), a GOP Senate candidate, made the comments during an interview with North Dakota DJ Jarrod Thomas.

Kavanaugh's confirmation proceedings have become a "highly partisan show", according to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who noted in a speech at George Washington University last week that she and other Supreme Court justices were confirmed by wide margins in the 1980's and 1990's. Blasey has said that both boys were "stumbling drunk" while she had had a single beer. "Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere".

Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 when Hill gave testimony alleging sexual harassment by then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

Cramer went on to say that if the allegations are true it is a "tragedy" for Ford that her accusation is being used by Democrats as a "political weapon". At the time, there was a sense of legitimacy to what Anita Hill was saying, but it is hard not to be skeptical considering the timing and history of the allegation Brett Kavanaugh is facing.

The Senate Judiciary Committee and Ford continue to negotiate on whether and when she'll testify, though the most recent tentative agreement has her and Kavanaugh up on the hill on Wednesday. He also called for an FBI investigation into the allegation.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said on the "Today" show Friday that he thinks the FBI should investigate Christine Blasey Ford's claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"His comments were disturbing and representative of a bigger issue Congressman Cramer has with respecting women and victims of assault or abuse".

And she joins me now.

Biden was the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time and widely criticized for not shielding Hill from the all-male committee members' questions, which were largely considered sexist. After initially saying that she wanted an FBI investigation before she testified, Ford's lawyer said she could testify next week if the Senate would agree to "terms that are fair and which ensure her safety". "Treat her with respect, ask tough questions, ask substantive questions ... but don't go after the character assassination".

Biden is contemplating a presidential bid in 2020 but declined to reveal his plans to NBC: "I desperately want to change the landscape, and there's more than one way to do that. you got a lot of talented people, but we got to stop this degradation of the system that's going on". Cramer anxious that people would be reluctant to run for public office if such accusations are believed without "appropriate due process". "You know, roll out an accusation that no one else can corroborate, and we believe the accuser without appropriate due process", he said.
