Kavanaugh and accuser testify at Senate hearing
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and one of the women accusing him of sexual assault appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday.
Christine Blasey Ford says Kavanaugh assaulted her when she was in her teens. In testimony prepared for the hearing, she says the assault "drastically altered her life" and she was "too afraid and ashamed" to share details with anyone.
In his prepared testimony, Kavanaugh says the accusations by Ford and two other women are "“grotesque and obvious character assassination." Kavanaugh says, "I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes."
