Confirmation Battle Over Kavanaugh Comes With Echoes of the Past


The U.S. Senate is moving toward a final showdown over the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh’s nomination was thrown into turmoil after Christine Blasey Ford accused him of sexual assault when they were both teenagers in the 1980s. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation. This latest Supreme Court confirmation battle recalls another high stakes drama that riveted the country in 1991, as we hear from VOA National correspondent Jim Malone.
