Fox New host Laura Ingraham had more consideration for Sen. Cory Booker amid an anonymous accusation of sexual assault against the New Jersey Democrat than the lawmaker ever showed for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“We don’t raise this issue because we automatically assume it has credibility,” Ingraham said on her show Monday. “I don’t like anonymous allegations. We actually think everyone should wait for the details to come in before we say something like this, right?”
She then played a clip of Booker calling for “moving on to another candidate” for the Supreme Court after Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexual abuse.
An anonymous gay man tweeted a shocking, detailed description last week about how he was sexually assaulted by Booker, claiming he has “much more probative evidence” than Ford did.

“We don’t lend much if any credence to anonymous accusations without any more detail,” Ingraham said as she introduced her panel. “I think if you’re going to make an allegation like this you have to put your name to it, but can you see the danger of the ‘believe everyone’ mantra that was created on the left during the Kavanaugh saga? Especially as espoused by Booker himself.”
Panelist Leo Terrell, a civil rights attorney skeptical of the accusation against Booker, offered on air to provide the accuser “free representation,” before going on to say this claim should not be compared to the accusations against Kavanaugh.
“I don’t believe it,” he said. “It’s a smear campaign.”
Fellow panelist Monica Crowley reminded viewers that Ford wanted to remain anonymous until Democrats leaked her letter, and how Booker himself said during the Kavanaugh hearings that all accusers should be heard.
She then said by the Democrat’s “own standards,” the accusation against him “must be investigated.”
“I don’t like it when people do this kind of stuff,” Ingraham stated. “I believe it is a smear. I mean, if you’re going to make an accusation — this is a supposedly a man making an accusation that something happened in a bathroom — if you’re going to make that kind of accusation you better put your name to it.”
At the same time, she called attention to the differing reaction from the media during the Kavanaugh hearings.
“Our point is a simple one,” Ingraham noted. “We have major media outlets during Kavanaugh rolling with this anonymous stuff and people like Cory Booker out there tarring Brett Kavanaugh because of the mountain of evidence, which ended up being nothing.”
