Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sitting beside his wife Ashley, was unyielding in his defense against allegations of sexual assault in an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum on Monday.
"I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity. I know I am telling the truth. I know my lifelong record. I am not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process."— Brett Kavanaugh
The bottom line: Kavanaugh not only used the interview as an opportunity to deny the accusations, but he also pushed back against what he described as mischaracterizations about his behavior in high school. He told MacCallum that he "didn't have anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter. The girls from the schools I went to and I were friends." (Note that none of the allegations involve intercourse).
