Joe Scarborough on ‘The View': Kavanaugh's Views on Racial Discrimination Should Keep Him Off Supreme Court
The View/ScreenshotJoe Scarborough, the former Republican congressman and host of MSNBC's Morning Joe, does not think Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed as Supreme Court justice. But it has nothing to do with the sexual-assault allegations against him.

"You've got Democratic senators that are basically saying, ‘I don't need to hear Kavanaugh, he's a rapist!'" Scarborough said during a joint appearance with his co-host and partner Mika Brzesinski on The View Tuesday morning. "You've got Republican senators going out there and going, ‘I don't need to hear these women, they're lying!'" Since we "still have due process in America," he said the FBI should investigate the claims and "come back with the facts."

Scarborough said he believes that "at the end of the day" Kavanaugh will make it to the bench but added that if he were a senator, he would not vote to confirm him.

Maybe the GOP Should Dump Brett Kavanaugh for Mike Lee
Getty/Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastIn football, your enemy isn't the other team; your enemy is the clock. From a purely strategic standpoint, the same thing could be said about the current Supreme Court nomination battle. The Republicans' enemy isn't the Democrats, whom they outnumber. Their true enemy is the clock. That's why the Democrats have been trying to "delay, delay, delay." And, for a week now, it has worked.

Why are Republicans in a race against time? Because there is no guarantee that they will hold the Senate next year. Even if they do, their majority could be even slimmer than it is now, leaving less room for error. What is more, if they push to confirm a nominee in a lame duck session this fall, Republicans won't have any leverage over Democratic senators living in red states, such as North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia's Joe Manchin. The current leverage is that they have to get themselves reelected. But if that pressure is gone, whether they've won or lost on Nov. 6, they're surely more likely to be solid no votes.

With the clock ticking, Republicans should ask themselves whether it's time to replace Kavanaugh or whether they should stick with their starter.
