The judge also got emotional and started to tear up during his opening statement.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said during his Senate testimony on Thursday that his confirmation process has become a “national disgrace.”
Kavanaugh again categorically denied that he ever sexually assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and insisted that the various allegations of sexual assault are smears intended to disrupt his confirmation to SCOTUS.
Clearly furious, Kavanaugh excoriated Democrats for their handling of Dr. Ford’s claims and defended his name.
“Listen to the people who’ve known me my whole life,” Kavanaugh said. “Listen to the people I’ve grown up with and worked with and played with and coached with and dated and taught and gone to games with and had beers with.”
