A couple dozen people gathered at 21st and Utica on Wednesday to show support for Dr. Christine Ford.

They say Judge Brett Kavanaugh should withdraw his name from consideration for the U.S. Supreme Court after being questioned about Ford’s allegations.

“It was pretty much proved to me that he would not be good in a position of making decisions about other people’s lives,” said protestor Gary Parker.

Senator James Lankford weighed in on the allegations and the FBI investigation, as well.  He said on NPR’s "All Things Considered" that, so far, he doesn’t believe Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Ford.

He also says he doesn’t believe Kavanaugh is lying about his past.

“That’s trying to find some way to trip up a nominee, to be able to catch them on something based on some kind of history from 36 years ago,” said Lankford.  “That’s no longer really trying to be able to get to a judge.  That’s trying to be able to destroy someone personally.”
