Sen Lee Comments on Today’s Supreme Court Confirmation Hearing

September 27, 2018

WASHINGTON - Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement after today’s Judiciary Committee Hearing.

“Today’s hearing was heart wrenching. Both witnesses have suffered, and both offered brave and compelling testimony.

“The Judiciary Committee has conducted an investigation into Dr. Ford’s allegation. Despite deliberate obstruction of that investigation by Committee Democrats, we now have sworn statements from all those named by Dr. Ford at the alleged incident. None of them remembers the incident ever happening.

“I believe Dr. Ford was the victim of a crime. I do not believe Judge Kavanaugh committed it, and no corroborating evidence suggests he did.

“Brett Kavanaugh is a good man, and a great judge. He belongs on the Supreme Court for the fall term, and back on the sidelines at Blessed Sacrament for the fall basketball season. Judge Kavanaugh has my vote.”
