Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defended Republicans on Sunday from criticism of how they handled sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace questioned McConnell about why he and other Republicans dismissed the allegations when many believed the accusers in sexual assault claims against former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

“I can't imagine comparing Brett Kavanaugh to Roy Moore,” McConnell, R-Ky., said.

McConnell suggested the evidence against Moore was stronger than what Kavanaugh faced. Moore lost a special election last year after being accused in multiple cases of sexual conducted against teenage girls.

A limited FBI probe found no corroborating evidence for claims against Kavanaugh, Republicans say, and Kavanaugh was confirmed by a 50-48 vote and sworn in on Saturday.

“Multiple witnesses over and over and over kept popping up,” McConnell said of the Moore case. “Here we had an FBI investigation and three members of our conference who were undecided, took a look at the FBI investigation, and two of the three decided to confirm judge Kavanaugh.”

As the exchange continued, McConnell appeared to take offense with Wallace’s questioning, and continued to contest the comparison with Moore.

“It's outrageous to compare Brett Kavanaugh to Roy Moore,” McConnell said to Wallace.

“I didn't do so,” Wallace replied. “I was simply comparing the fact that in one case, you believe the accusers. In another case, you didn't. I am not comparing Judge Roy Moore and Brett Kavanaugh.”

“Good, because there is no comparison,” McConnell concluded.
