PressTV-Trump’s SC nominee rejects sexual assault accusation

US President Donald Trump’s embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, 53, has denied sexual assault accusations made against him.

Fifty-one-year-old psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

Kavanaugh, on Thursday, told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was “innocent” of sexually assaulting Ford.
