President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is currently facing an allegation of sexual assault while in high school, will provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with calendars from 1982 to back up his continued denial of the assault, per The New York Times.

The details: The calendars do not list a party like the one recounted by Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, though his team acknowledges that fact does not necessarily disprove her allegations. Kavanaugh's social activities while in high school in the 1980s are likely to be a focus of Thursday's planned open Senate Judiciary hearing featuring testimony from both Kavanaugh and Ford.
