"This case is even more absurd because these people were teenagers when this supposed alleged incident took place; teenagers", he emphasized.
"They were drunk. Nothing evidently happened in it all, even by her own accusation", Cramer added.
"Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere", Cramer insisted.
Cramer, who now represents North Dakota as a congressman, was comparing Hill's 1991 allegations of workplace sexual harassment against the later-confirmed Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas to California professor Christine Blasey Ford's current allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), doesn't exactly back away from the thrust of remarks made Friday on a local radio show that Ford's accusations against Kavanaugh are "absurd". She said she escaped when a high school friend of Kavanaugh's jumped on top of them.
Saturday was the latest in a string of tumultuous days for Kavanaugh, whose ascension to the Supreme Court seemed a sure bet until Ford emerged last weekend and provided details of the alleged assault.
Ford's lawyers said Saturday she accepted the Senate Judiciary Committee's invitation to testify next week, according to the Post.
Cramer says it's hard not to be skeptical due to the history and timing of the accusation against Kavanaugh, but that any such allegation "should be taken seriously".
Biden, twice a candidate for president before two terms as vice president under Barack Obama, says he would run in 2020 if no other candidate steps forward who he believes can beat President Trump, a Republican.
"Congressman Cramer's comments are disturbing and they don't reflect the values of North Dakota".
Ultimately, Biden called on the Senators in the Judiciary Committee to ask the "tough" and "substantive" questions, but to keep in mind the "courage it takes for someone to come forward and relive what they believe happened to them".
And she joins me now.
When asked how to balance the rights of Ford and the presumption that a person is innocent until proven guilty, Biden said, "I think the presumption should exist but what should happen is, the woman should be given the benefit of the doubt and not be abused again by the system".
Meanwhile, fellow Democratic presidential prospects such as California Sen.
Heitkamp said earlier this week that the committee should investigate Ford's claims and she should be allowed to testify. And they're making it sound as if they're going to go ahead whether she's there or not.
"You just can't expect to defame a guy who's got a stellar record and a stellar, almost flawless reputation, near as I can tell, character-wise, and be able to be the last word", the Senate nominee and congressman said.
Cramer later added that he feared that such accusations would prevent "good people" from seeking high office.
