Chuck Todd: How can Kavanaugh deny being at party when accuser never said which party it was?

NBC host Chuck Todd expressed doubt on Tuesday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was telling the truth when he denied being at a party where he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman.


In an interview with The Washington Post, Christine Blasey Ford recalled that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her at a party while both were in high school. The Post reported that the party occurred "one summer in the early 1980s" -- but it did not reveal a specific date.

Kavanaugh later categorically denied assaulting Ford or attending the party.

"The problem with the denial is Dr. Ford didn't make a specific allegation of a specific event," Todd explained to MSNBC's Hallie Jackson on Tuesday. "She admitted she couldn't remember which house where this was. So, why does he have a very specific ability to deny?"

"The point is, it seemed to raise more questions, perhaps, the specific denial," he added. "There's a lot of people that could come out and have different remembrances here and that's why I think, every day, you should judge this nomination on a day-to-day basis is the bottom line."
