The Tennessean: Lamar Alexander: Brett Kavanaugh went through 'inquisition' arranged by Democrats
U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander defended theconfirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on "Meet the Press" Sunday morning, and called the questioning of the court's newest justice amid decades-old sexual assault allegations an "inquisition" that was "arranged by the Democrats."
The interview came a day after a 50-48 vote for Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Donald Trump in July.
Alexander and Sen. Bob Corker were among the 49 Republican senators who all voted to confirm Kavanaugh, with every Democratic senator voting against except Joe Manchin, D-W.Va.
