Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s intense, tearful, and often surreal hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee is over, and now all that remains is a vote. Here’s what you missed from the hearing, where Kavanaugh’s original accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified for four hours as to the alleged traumatic sexual assault she suffered at the hands of the Supreme Court nominee.
Dr. Ford delivered a calm, devastating opening statement, while Kavanaugh openly wept through much of his muddled testimony. Lindsey Graham had a meltdown, then got doxxed on Wikipedia. Even Fox News called the hearing a “disaster” for Republicans.
