Judge Brett Kavanaugh came out swinging in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday as he defends himself against sexual assault allegations, Judge Andrew Napolitano said.
During a break in the hearing, Fox News interviewed Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge.
"The cork is out of the bottle. This is almost a different person from the one we saw on Monday night when Martha [MacCallum] interviewed him," Napolitano said. "I'm going to suggest that his handlers held him back then. Since then, he said the heck with you. I'm going to be my own man. I and my family have been so wronged and the country and the committee are going to know about that and they're going to know it from my own mouth.
"Boy, has he done that effectively."
Napolitano added that he didn't think Kavanaugh should have showed emotions like he did during his opening statement, but then he changed his mind and said it was a positive thing for the judge to do so.
"Now I'm persuaded this was normal, natural and people expect it," Napolitano said. "I think there were a few audience members whose eyes welled up."
