Angry and bit combative and certainly political….
Kavanaugh is back infant of the people reviewing him for a Supreme Court vote from the whole US Senate…
The judge does have a LOT on the line…
A seat on the Supreme Court….
His employment as a Federal judge….
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied the sexual allegations multiple women have raised against him in heated, forceful testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” he said at high volume, his brow furrowed.
“You’ve tried hard, you’ve given it your all, no one can question your effort. Your coordinated and well-funded effort to destroy my good name and destroy my family will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out,” he said in comments directed at Democrats on the panel.
Though he did not name her specifically, he accused Senator Dianne Feinstein of strategically holding onto the first allegation of sexual assault against him to derail his confirmation.
He said the accusations against him have destroyed his family and his good name, a good name he said he built through decades of hard work and service in the American government.
“The last few weeks have been an orchestrated political hit fueled by pent up anger against President Trump and the 2016 election, fear that has been unfairly stoked about my judicial record, revenge on behalf of the Clintons and millions of dollars in money from outside, left-wing opposition groups,” he said.
As Kavanaugh grew increasingly emotional, it appeared to start having an effect on Republican senators who looked at him intently with furrowed brows and frowns.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) blinked and bit his lips as Kavanaugh started to choke up as he talked about his female friends in high school who remain close with him to this day.
Cornyn’s eyes appeared to mist up and he took several sips from a glass of water in front of him. When Kavanaugh finished, he turned to Graham, who was sitting next to him and exhaled deeply and raised his eyebrows with empathy.
Democrats appeared much less moved by the testimony….
