On Monday, Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN's Chris Cuomo that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's sexual assault scandal is taking America back 27-years.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault in an article published in The Washington Post on Sunday.

Avenatti drew parallels between this case and when Anita Hill accused Judge Clarence Thomas of sexual misconduct in the 1990s.

"This is a very serious matter. We're talking about a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, "Avenatti said.

He added, "Why go through this hearing on Monday? It's going to be an absolute circus show. It's going to take us back to 27 years ago to the Judge Clarence Thomas' hearing."

"I know there are certain Senators on that panel that would like to forget what happened and how much disrespect was shown to Anita Hill at the time. I just think if the president was smart, everything else going on right now, he ought to pull the nomination and nominate someone new," he concluded.
