Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear testimony from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who accused her former classmate of sexual assault when they were in high school. This hearing could bring a conclusion to the seemingly never-ending confirmation process that began weeks ago, having been delayed because of multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, including one that was lodged yesterday by an additional high school classmate. Meanwhile, our very own senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, have taken stances (albeit before the third allegation was reported). A spokesperson for Tillis, who is a member of the Judiciary Committee, said he looks forward to being involved in the hearing and taking part in an “evidenced-based process.” Burr, for his part, has already made up his mind, a spokesperson said, blaming Democrats for trying to block Donald Trump’s choice. Ah, politics. Never a dull moment.
