Mere hours after Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, offered their emotional, riveting testimony on Capitol Hill Thursday, Senate Republicans are looking to push Kavanaugh through to confirmation.
Following Ford’s insistence that she is “100 percent” sure Kavanaugh assaulted her, and Kavanaugh’s insistence that he is “innocent,” many on the Senate Judiciary Committee seemed to come away with the opinions they espoused before.
Most Republicans on the committee stood by Kavanaugh, and most Democrats stood by Ford and want to stop or slow his confirmation. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
