Americans want to see a fair process in the ongoing controversy over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and his confirmation hearings intensify both sides of the upcoming midterm elections, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Tuesday.
" I think people need to see what is going forward, and not to prejudge, but listen to the facts and then make their decision," the California Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "I think it intensifies both sides because people want to make sure that people do not get mistreated, sexually or any other way. But they also want a fair process."
McCarthy also commented on the matter of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is to meet with President Donald Trump on Thursday for a discussion about matters including a story claiming he'd suggested secretly recording the president.
"I would say let's let the president have a meeting first, let them have a one on one," said McCarthy. "There's lots of concerns about him. Why he hasn't provided the information that the house has asked for...he has a lot of answers, but I think the first person he needs the answer to is the president."
However, based on what Rosenstein did to Congress, by refusing to provide documents concerning the methods used to obtain Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants and other matters, Rosenstein has done "a poor job," said McCarthy. "I think he needs to answer what we have requested. We have a responsibility."
