Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denies sexual misconduct claims: ‘We will be vindicated’
The Supreme Court has unanimously upheld Brett Kavanaugh’s right to an impartial jury trial.
The Court’s decision comes as the Senate prepares to confirm Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.
But Kavanaugh’s accusers are not backing down and are asking the court to hold a new trial.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he’s confident the Supreme Court will hear their case.
Kavanaugh denies allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman in high school and that he lied about it to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 2013.
He also maintains that he did not know his accuser’s identity at the time.
The women accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when she was 16 years old and he was 32.
They say he sexually harassed them at a party in the 1970s and 1980s and then tried to have sex with them when she later became pregnant.
