Wyden comments after hearing: ‘I believe Dr. Ford’


Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., applauded Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony, and highlighted new concerns about Brett Kavanaugh’s fitness in a statement issued after Thursday’s hearing:

“Dr. Ford’s brave testimony today gave hope to survivors everywhere. I cannot imagine a more compelling witness,” Wyden said.

“I believe Dr. Ford.

” On the other hand, Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony demonstrated he lacks both the judgment and the temperament Americans expect from a Supreme Court Justice. The best that can be said of his testimony is that it was strikingly evasive.

“The clear contrast between these two witnesses – one composed individual who gave thorough answers based on a clear recollection of her trauma, and another who repeatedly dodged questions – will be seared into Americans’ memories for generations.

“Serving on the Supreme Court is a unique privilege. I will forcefully oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination,” Wyden concluded.
