CNN recently asked five women if they believed Judge Brett Kavanaugh over the woman accusing him of sexually assaulting her over 30 years ago.
They did not get the response they were likely expecting.
“A show of hands; how many of you believe Judge Kavanaugh when he says this didn’t happen?” the CNN host asked.
All five women immediately raised their hands.
“I believe him,” one woman said.
“I believe him, too,” another agreed.
Watch the incredible moment unfold on CNN below:

“How can we believe the word of a woman of something that happened 36 years ago. This guy has an impeccable reputation,” Lourdes Castillo de la Pena told CNN. “There is nobody who has spoken ill-will about him. Everyone that speaks about him — this guy is an alter boy. … Because one woman made an allegation, I’m sorry, I don’t buy it.”

Yet another woman on the panel indicated she would still support Kavanaugh even if the allegation was true.
“But in the grand scheme of things, my goodness. There was no intercourse,” Irina Villarino said. “There was maybe a touch. Really? 36 years later, she’s still stuck on that? Had it happened.”
Several of the women on the CNN panel also questioned the timing of Ford’s allegation, asking why she didn’t come forward sooner — like when Kavanaugh entered the Bush White House or became a federal judge.
“I have no sympathy,” Pena said of Ford.
Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday to defend his integrity in the face of Ford’s allegation. He as offered to testify as soon as possible to clear his name.
Ford, on the other hand, initially ignored the committee’s invitation to testify, and is now demanding certain conditions before she will speak to lawmakers. One of those conditions is that Kavanaugh testify first, which is strange given that the accuser is usually given a chance to respond to the allegations made by his accuser.
The entire country is watching and waiting to see what will happen on Monday.
