ON THE HILL with DOUG CHRISTIAN

WASHINGTON – Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning.

Dr. Ford’s prepared testimony reads in part:

I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school. I have described the events publicly before. I summarized them in my letter to Ranking Member Feinstein, and again in my letter to Chairman Grassley. I understand and appreciate the importance of your hearing from me directly about what happened to me and the impact it has had on my life and on my family.

Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony begins:

Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Feinstein, and Members of the Committee: Eleven days ago, Dr. Ford publicly accused me of committing a serious wrong more than 36 years ago when we were both in high school. I denied the allegation immediately, unequivocally, and categorically. The next day, I told this Committee that I wanted to testify as soon as possible, under oath, to clear my name.

Several senators avoided questions from TMN Wednesday regarding Kavanaugh.
