Should the Senate confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court?

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday is expected to decide whether to send Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination to the full Senate for confirmation.

Senators must weigh the serious sexual assault allegations Christine Blasey Ford made against Kavanaugh, against Kavanaugh’s angry denial.

Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh separately testified before the committee Thursday, both convincingly laying out their truth.

Blasey Ford said she was 100 percent certain Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a teenaged gathering in 1982. She didn’t get him mixed up. She wasn’t confused. She said she knew it was Kavanaugh who assaulted her.

Kavanaugh said he did not sexually assault Blasey Ford. He said he has never sexually assaulted anyone. He backed up his testimony with calendars detailing his plans during the summer of 1982. He testified that he was a virgin during high school and college.

Both Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh seemed so sure. A few swing vote could decide whether he becomes a member of the Supreme Court. What do you think?
