Senator Jeff Flake on Kavanaugh's denial of sexual assault: "I don't know if I believed him"

Today on ABC's The View, Senator Jeff Flake admits that he doesn't know if Brett Kavanaugh, accused by three women of sexual assault, was telling the truth or not during his hearing before being confirmed to the Supreme Court.

It was Flake who had requested a delay in the confirmation process to make room for a week-long FBI-investigation into the sexual assault accusations against Kavanaugh.

At about 5:20 in the video, he's asked if he believed Ford, and he answers, "She was very compelling. He was very persuasive. I don't know. I don't know. I wish I had the certitude that some of my colleagues expressed. But I said on the floor before that hearing, we're likely to hear the hearing with as much doubt as certainty. And that's how I felt afterwards."

Later, at 6:15, he's asked again, "So you didn't believe her?"

And he answers, "I don't know. I don't know if I believed him, either."
