kavanaugh-ford hearing

Did Kavanaugh lie under oath about watching Ford's testimony?

Under oath, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said on Thursday that he did not watch Christine Blasey Ford's testimony earlier in the day, contradicting a Senate aide.

On Thursday morning, a Senate Judiciary Committee aide told The Wall Street Journal that Kavanaugh was watching Ford testify from a monitor in a separate room in the Dirksen Senate Building. When it was his turn to testify, Kavanaugh was asked by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) if he watched Ford's testimony. "I did not," he said. "I plan to, I plan to, but I did not, I was preparing mine." Catherine Garcia
