NBC host Chuck Todd expressed doubt on Tuesday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was telling the truth when he denied being at a party where he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Christine Blasey Ford recalled that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her at a party while both were in high school. The Post reported that the party occurred “one summer in the early 1980s” — but it did not reveal a specific date.

Kavanaugh later categorically denied assaulting Ford or attending the party.

“The problem with the denial is Dr. Ford didn’t make a specific allegation of a specific event,” Todd explained to MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson on Tuesday. “She admitted she couldn’t remember which house where this was. So, why does he have a very specific ability to deny?”

“The point is, it seemed to raise more questions, perhaps, the specific denial,” he added. “There’s a lot of people that could come out and have different remembrances here and that’s why I think, every day, you should judge this nomination on a day-to-day basis is the bottom line.”
