As news broke that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by his high school peer — Republican were quick to cry dishonesty.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault while the two were in high school more than 30 years ago.

On Monday, CNN's Chris Cuomo asserted that the timing of the assault does not lessen the seriousness of the allegations.

"Don't get up caught up in when something happened, get caught up in truth and corroboration through other testimony," Cuomo said. "Disclosures like this are difficult. It is wrong to see the delay as a sign of dishonesty, and an expert who knows the field will tell you that."
