Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is touted to be one of the lead questioners should a new hearing be scheduled to hear testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said in an interview with the Daily Beast that Ford’s (uncorroborated) allegations of Kavanaugh sexually assaulting her at a drunken high school pool party decades ago do not need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt for Kavanugh to be denied a seat on the Supreme Court.

The Daily Beast article, headlined “They Oversaw Sex-Crime Cases, Now They’ll Grill Kavanaugh” names Harris and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) as the two senators set to take charge of the questioning for the Democrats because they are women and have a background of prosecuting sex crimes.

Harris’ claim that the criminal court standard for conviction of proof beyond a reasonable doubt does not apply to Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, while constitutionally accurate, also sets a precedent that vague uncorroborated charges of decades old alleged high school misbehavior is enough to ruin a man or woman and destroy their professional careers.
