On Sunday, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, published an article in The Washington Post claiming that while in high school Kavanaugh pushed her into a room, locked the door and attempted to take her clothes off.


As news continued to unfold, CNN's commentator Symone Sanders called out gaps in Kavanaugh's defense during CNN's Jake Tapper's Monday show.

Kavanaugh originally denied all sexual assault allegations in a statement that said: "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time," his statement said.

However, Sanders said that there is a discrepancy around which party the alleged sexual abuse took place.

Tapper played a clip of Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) saying, "He wasn't at the party. There’s clearly —somebody’s mixed up. I think she's mistaken."

"I'm trying to figure out how Judge Kavanaugh knows he wasn't at a party that Dr. Ford hasn't asserted he was at. She has [said she didn't know which party.]" Sanders said.

She added, "He remembers he wasn't at a party where he didn't do what he was accused of -- this is why we need a hearing. I think Judge Kavanaugh has been credibly accused."

Sanders also said she stood in solidarity with Ford because she is also a sexual assault survivor.

"When I was in college, I was intoxicated, and a man who I had previously rebuffed his advances multiple times took advantage of the fact that I could not consent one night," Sanders shared.

"The next day, he denied raping me. That's exactly what he did. If he ever came up for a Supreme Court nomination, president of the United States, or Congressman — I don't care if it's been 20 to 50 years, I would come forward," she ended.
