McConnell: Kavanaugh Nomination Moving Ahead

Tuesday, 18 September 2018 11:31 AM

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is defending Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

McConnell said Tuesday that a woman's claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago is "completely at variance" with everything else known about his past. The Kentucky Republican said the Senate's push to confirm Kavanaugh will move forward.

McConnell accused Democrats of "blatant malpractice" by waiting weeks to disclose the letter Christine Blasey Ford had sent lawmakers describing the alleged incident. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who had the letter, said she didn't reveal it to protect Ford's confidentiality.

McConnell said Ford's allegation "stands at odds with every other piece of the overwhelmingly positive testimony we've received" about Kavanaugh.

Ford claims Kavanaugh forced her into a room and tried undressing her during a party when both were in high school. Kavanaugh denies those allegations.
