Hillary Clinton laughed after she was asked about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s comments last week, when he mentioned that his embattled confirmation process had, among other things, turned into “revenge on the behalf of the Clintons,” Fox News informed.

“I thought it was just part of the whole of his very defensive and … unconvincing presentation,” Clinton said. “And I told someone later: ‘Boy, I’ll tell you, they give us a lot of credit. Thirty-six years ago we started this against him’.”

Clinton’s comments came while she was inteviewed at The Atlantic Festival in Washington, D.C. She stated that Kavanaugh’s remark “deserves a lot of laughter.”

Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, was accused by three women of sexual assault and attended a hearing before the Senate Judicial Committee.

“This whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit, fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups,” Kavanaugh said at the time.

Hillary Clinton’s husband Bill was president of the U.S. when Kavanaugh was part of the investigation that led to impeachment. Kavanaugh also co-wrote a report where he laid out legal framework supporting Clinton’s impeachment for his affair with the then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Following Clinton’s remarks Tuesday, she added that Kavanaugh’s testimony could present some potential issues.

“I want the FBI to conduct as thorough an investigation as they possibly can within whatever restraints are imposed upon them,” Clinton said. “But I think, for anyone who believes there’s such a thing as a judicial temperament and that we want judges, particularly those on our highest court, to approach issues, approach plaintiffs and defendants with a sense of fairness, that there’s a lot to be concerned about.”
