The Washington Examiner reported:
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday he will appear and answer questions about sexual assault allegations against him, and said he’s ready to clear his name.
“Thank you for the invitation to appear before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on Monday, September 24,” he wrote. “I will be there.”
“I continue to want a hearing as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name,” he added.
Kavanaugh’s decision comes as his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, continues to talk to the committee about how she might offer her side of the story. Her lawyer told the committee Thursday that she could be in a position to talk by next week, but said Monday would not be possible.
