Today, Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in a hearing that was filled with tears, recrimination, anger, and deep partisan mistrust. Ford alleges that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in the 1980s; since Ford came forward, two other women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in high school or college. Kavanaugh unequivocally denies the allegations.
