Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh repeatedly denied accusations of sexual misconduct that have threatened to derail his confirmation in an exclusive interview with Fox News on Monday. "What I know is the truth, and the truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone," Kavanaugh told Fox News' Martha MacCallum. Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley, said the allegations against her husband were "hard to believe."
California professor Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of covering her mouth and trying to remove her clothing at a party in the early 1980s, when both were in high school. Kavanaugh and Ford are set to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. In the interview, Kavanaugh emphatically denied Ford's claim against him, telling MacCallum that he was a virgin through high school and for "many years after." "I was never at any such party," Kavanaugh said.
Fox News Radio's Guy Benson gives his analysis of Judge Kavanaugh's interview on The Story.
If anything he is saying categorically turns out to be proven false he's done. He's done. So he's either crazy or really reckless or just hoping that he doesn't get caught or this is a man who believes he's telling the truth, knows he's telling the truth and has been falsely accused of things and the timing really does reek.
