New Sexual Misconduct Accusations Against Supreme Court Nominee

Politics

WASHINGTON –  New accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as the judge himself sits down for a TV interview to defend himself. 

It’s been more than a week since a woman accused him of trying to rape her while both were teens in the early 80s.

On Sunday, a woman told New Yorker magazine that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken party at Yale University. 

Democrats are renewing their calls to put this nomination on hold while Republicans accuse them of obstruction. 

“Whatever it took, whatever the truth really was, they were going to do whatever they could to stop this qualified experienced and mainstream nominee,” says Sen. Mitch McConnell, R- Senate Majority Leader.

“There’s one simple way to get to the bottom of this, without the he said, she said, without the finger pointing and name-calling. A quiet, serious, thorough background check by the FBI,” says Sen. Chuck Schumer D-Senate Minority Leader.

Judge Kavanaugh and his wife sat down for an exclusive interview with the FOX News channel that aired at 6 p.m. Monday evening.
