Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" on Monday that the Senate Judiciary Committee should hear out Christine Ford's story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly trying to rape her when they were both high schoolers.
Even though some reports claimed that President Donald Trump planned to personally attack Ford as a strategy to get Kavanaugh confirmed, Conway seemed to signal that this was not a wise strategy to pursue.
"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored," Conway said. "This woman will be heard."
Conway also said, however, that Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh should be given proper context because he had so many other positive qualities going for him.
"That has to be weighed against what we already know, which is that Judge Kavanaugh is a man of character and integrity, who has been through six FBI vettings, which I can tell you firsthand are significant and thorough," she said. "He also has been lauded by women from every different aspect of his life."
Debra Katz, the attorney representing Ford, said on Monday that her client was willing to testify publicly to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her alleged encounter with Kavanaugh.
