On Thursday night, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro weighed in on the two-part hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

Shapiro began noting that there wasn’t any “corroborative evidence” that supported Ford’s allegations, but acknowledged that her story seemed “credible” and her testimony was “emotionally resonant.”

“It does mean that we can’t simply destroy a man’s life and career based on an uncorroborated allegation no matter how much we have sympathy for the person making the allegation,” Shapiro told Laura Ingraham. “There was not one shred of supporting evidence that was brought to back her account.

So I don’t see any reason to suggest that Kavanaugh’s nomination ought to end based on what happened today.”
