This morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee heard from Christine Blasey Ford, who detailed her sexual assault allegation involving Brett Kavanaugh, more than 36 years ago. She gave a compelling testimony, one that was well received by many members of the committee. Many of the Senate democrats used their time to commend her bravery, and to let her know that they believed her. Republican Texas senator John Cornyn said “I found no reason to find her not credible.” Coming out of her testimony and into Kavanaugh’s, many believed he was fighting an uphill battle, and weren’t sure how he could convince the committee that he was innocent.
I think it’s fair to say that this whole thing has been messy at best. Even among staunch conservatives, who believed in and cheered for Kavanaugh before the allegations, there’s been a pause, and many have hoped this hearing would help to form their opinion.
