WATCH LIVE: Brett Kavanaugh Testifies: ‘My Family and My Name Have Been Totally and Permanently Destroyed’
UPDATE: Christine Blasey Ford finished her testimony. Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing is expected to begin shortly after 3 p.m. EST.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford are testifying today before the Senate Judiciary Committee to address allegations of sexual assault by Judge Kavanaugh over 35 years ago.
Today’s Senate hearing comes amidst a multitude of allegations surrounding Kavanaugh’s potential confirmation, all of varying corroboration and merit. Public opinion about Kavanaugh’s character has been split, and the most strident political opinionators have fallen along predictable lines.
Progressives see enough evidence of Kavanaugh’s questionable character to dismiss his nomination, and see conservatives as presenting a much more conspiratorial position, claiming Kavanaugh is a victim of a comprehensive smear campaign.
