Ex-US Attorney explains how Kavanaugh’s ‘little lies’ will catch up to him in the FBI investigation

Appearing on CNN’s New Day, a former U.S. Attorney said that embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s chances of actually being seated is in danger if a collection of “little lies” he made during his Senate testimony show a pattern of major deceit.

Speaking with CNN host Christi Paul, Michael Moore — who served as a U.S. Attorney in Georgia — said the FBO investigation into Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford’s claims could open up a Pandora’s box from the judge.

“I want to ask you,” Paul asked. “How might it affect him, affect the vote if they can’t corroborate what Dr. Ford says but can find that there was really serious alcohol use here that did impair his decisions?”

“We’ve heard about this being a trial and what the burden of proof is,” Moore began. “When you have an investigation, they will look at his credibility. If a witness says he was impaired, passed out, these are small things that we can see that he’s maybe not telling the truth about. When you don’t tell the truth on the little things, it casts doubt on your version of the big things.”
