Emotional hearing comes to a close with vote on Kavanaugh scheduled for Friday

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh responded to allegations of sexual assault with anger and emotion today, almost shouting his opening statement and stopping repeatedly to fight back tears and compose himself. Kavanaugh said he had no ill will toward Ford, but denied her allegations.

During nearly four hours of prior testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford told senators that Kavanaugh attacked her at a gathering while they were in high school. She said the attack is seared in her memory and she is “100 percent” certain that it was Kavanaugh who attacked her.
