Judiciary Committee Releases Brett Kavanaugh’s Prepared Testimony
The Judiciary Committee released Judge Kavanaugh’s prepared witness testimony Wednesday morning.
Kavanaugh will give his testimony Thursday morning in a Senate hearing.
“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,” Kavanaugh wrote in his testimony.
Kavanaugh addressed the second accuser, Ramirez, the woman who ran to the New Yorker to make uncorroborated claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a Yale party decades ago, however; he did not say her name.
Kavanaugh described the attacks against him as “grotesque” and reiterated that he will not be intimidated into withdrawing from the process.

A hearing is set for Thursday morning in the Dirksen Senate building where both Kavanaugh and Ford will give their testimonies.
Senate Republicans hired outside counsel to question Christine Ford in Thursday’s hearing.
The attorney, a female who is an expert in sex crimes has been identified as Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell.
Grassley said Senate Republicans hired Rachel Mitchell to de-politicize the process and get to the truth, instead of grandstanding and giving senators an opportunity to launch their presidential campaigns.
Of course the Democrats are complaining about the latest move by Republicans to hire Rachel Mitchell–Democrat Senator Kamala Harris said it’s “passive aggressive.”
