Barrasso Supports Kavanaugh
Written by Andrew-Rossi on September 28, 2018
U.S. Sen. John Barrasso said yesterday evening that he continues to support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who testified that he did not sexually assault psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford when they were teenagers.
The Casper Star-Tribune quotes Barrasso as saying he found Judge Kavanaugh’s categorical denial of these events to be convincing and very credible.
Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh both testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. In her testimony, Blasey Ford stated with certainty that Kavanaugh had assaulted her, and Kavanaugh insisted he had done no such thing.
Congresswoman Liz Cheney, one of Kavanaugh’s most vehement supporters, was vocal in reaffirming her support for the nominee on Thursday afternoon. Senator Mike Enzi did not comment on the matter.
