Earlier this summer, President Trump revealed that his official nomination for the Supreme Court would be Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Since then, thousands of documents and hundreds of interviews have been conducted.
Two weeks ago, on the eve of the vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, a harmful allegation came forward. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused the judge of sexual assault when the two were in high school 36 years ago. Since then, Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the accusations.
Ultimately, the Senate Judiciary Committee decided to postpone their vote and hold a hearing in order to hear both sides testify.
On Thursday, September 27, Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford each testified before the committee in an emotional hearing. Committee members asked several questions and the two parties gave their full statements.
Now, on Friday, September 28, the Senate Judiciary Committee is meeting in order to discuss and vote on Judge Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.
If the committee votes "yes" on Kavanaugh, Politico revealed what next week would look like for Kavanaugh's nomination.
Below is the schedule for Kavanaugh's nomination for the Supreme Court:
Friday, September 28: Senate Judiciary Committee discussion and vote on Kavanaugh.
