Sen. Kamala Harris: I Believe Kavanaugh Accuser, "She Has Nothing To Gain"


Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, joins 'CBS This Morning' from Capitol Hill to discuss Monday's highly anticipated hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school.

SEN. KAMALA HARRIS: I think it's going to be about, it comes down to credibility...and it's going to about listening to what each party has to say, but I believe her...

Anybody who comes forward at this point to be prepared to testify in the United States Senate against someone who's being nominated to one of the most powerful positions in the United States government, that takes an extraordinary amount of courage.

My concern is, and she knows this, she is putting herself out there, knowing they're going to try to excoriate her and she's doing it because she knows this is an important matter, it's a serious matter who serves on that court and she has the courage to come forward, she has nothing to gain.

Harris asks who Brett Kavanaugh really is?

HARRIS: I want to know about this guy's background and the American public wants to know, are we about to put someone on the United States Supreme Court who committed a sexual assault? The American public deserves to know the character of someone who will serve for his entire life on the highest court in our country.

I believe that the FBI should be compelled to do its job in terms of completing their background investigation and that's not being done.
