Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said Tuesday that the upcoming hearing with a sexual assault accuser will determine "whether or not Judge Kavanaugh has the credibility and character to serve on the Supreme Court."
Hirono also warned that there will always be an "asterisk" by Kavanaugh's name in an interview Tuesday morning on CNN.
ALISYN CAMEROTA, CNN HOST: Senator, are there plans to hear from Debbie Ramirez on Thursday?
SEN. MAZIE HIRONO (D-HI): I don't know, but what I really want to hear from this administration, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is, there will be an FBI investigation. That is what we need. And I think most people who look at this process, and want some monochrome (ph) of fairness, would agree that we should have an FBI investigation.
But they continue to stonewall. And I think that they're doing a tremendous disservice to the public - American people, as well as, should he get on the court, there will always be an asterisk, and a cloud, over his name, and on his name. And I think that is not what we want to do to the Supreme Court.
