I was underneath one of them while the two laughed".

But while doing so, Kavanaugh refused to say that he supported an FBI investigation when he was pressed by lawmakers on that panel.

'Ford is political collateral, and they do not care, ' Mace said. "Mitchell spelled it out and was clear with senators that she could not take this anywhere near a courtroom", Fox News cited a source.
