Kavanaugh: "This is a circus. The consequences will extend long past my nomination. The consequences will be with us for decades. This grotesque and coordinated character assassination will dissuade competence in good people of all political persuasions from serving our country." pic.twitter.com/kzYgxiriNS

A truly moving and powerful opening statement by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the pressure on his family is immeasurable. “This effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out. The vile threats of violence against my family will not drive me out,” Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh: I'm not questioning that Dr. Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person, at some place at some time. But I did not do this. I am innocent of this charge. I intend no ill will toward Dr. Ford.

But Kavanaugh also got emotional in his opening statement:
Kavanaugh breaks down describing how his 10-year-old daughter wanted to pray for Dr. Ford. "That's a lot of wisdom from a 10-year-old."

It has in fact been a circus.
Media asking why Kavanaugh is livid. You. You are why. Peddling anonymous accusations. Generating hysteria. Bringing bonehead Avenatti on television. Take a bow. What an absolute disgrace.

It’s been disgraceful.
