Executive Session (Kavanaugh Nomination)

Senator Booker: (8:08 p.m.)

  • Spoke on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
    • "Mr. President, on September 16 Dr. Christine Blasey Ford publicly came forward to share that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. This was a remarkably courageous act. It was one in which she hesitated to do. It was something that she struggled with. But yet she said time and time again that she believed it was her civic duty, her civic duty, that her sense of citizenship, that act of grace, that feeling that you have a commitment to country, to causes larger than yourself, she put herself forward."
