On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee interviewed Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. 11 days ago, Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were both in high school.
Blasey Ford stood behind her assertion that Kavanaugh assaulted her. While she seemed to be a credible witness, she did not bring forward solid evidence and there were some holes in her story.
After she had completed her testimony, Kavanaugh also testified. He gave a strong statement that he was not at the party where she was assaulted, and he did not assault her or anyone else. As he testified, his wife sat behind him—watching him with tears in her eyes.
After hours of testimony, President Trump released his reaction to the testimony by Brett Kavanaugh. President Trump made it very clear how he felt about Kavanaugh's innocence.
"Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting," wrote President Trump on Twitter. "Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!"
The decision of the Senate Judiciary Committee has not been released. Several of the Republicans on the committee said that they wanted to take some time to review the hours of testimony.
It is unclear when Kavanaugh's nomination will be voted on. The committee is planning to meet at 9:30 am E.T. to vote on whether they will move forward.
In other sad news, please pray for a family in North Carolina. The search for their 6-year-old son has come to a tragic end 6 days after he disappeared.
