Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took to nationwide television on Monday night to denounce allegations of sexual assault that have thrown his Supreme Court confirmation into question.
Kavanaugh, who is now facing two accusations of sexual misconduct, told Fox News host Martha McCallum he “never sexually assaulted anyone…not ever.”
Seated alongside his wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, the U.S. Court of Appeals judge insisted he would not be withdrawing from the confirmation proceedings.
Kavanaugh is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday regarding allegations made by California college professor Christine Blasey Ford, who says that an intoxicated Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothes and covered her mouth to prevent her from screaming at a high school house party in the 1980s.
Kavanaugh repeated his denials of both allegations again during his TV appearance on Monday.
