GOP Sen. Kennedy Asks Kavanaugh to 'Swear to God'


By    |   Thursday, 27 September 2018 07:31 PM EDT

The final member of the Judiciary Committee to grill Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday asked first "Do you believe in God?" and last if Kavanaugh would "swear to God" the sexual misconduct allegations against him are not true.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., got an affirmative reply to both.

After a marathon hearing in which both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified about an allegation Kavanaugh sexually assaulted Ford at a party more than three decades ago, Kennedy kept the focus tight.

"I'm sorry judge for what you and your family have been through," Kennedy began. "And I'm sorry for what Dr. Ford and her family have been through. It could have been avoided.

"Do you believe in God," Kennedy then abruptly asked.

Kavanaugh replied, "I do."

He then prompted Kavanaugh to "look me in the eye:" and refute the allegations of Ford, as well as two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, who did not testify.

"None of these allegations are true? No doubt in your mind? Not even a scintilla?" Kennedy asked.

Kavanaugh assured he was "100 percent certain" none was true.

"You swear to God?" Kennedy asked.

"I swear to God," Kavanaugh replied.

The hearing was then adjourned.
