Hugin waits until Thursday hearings to decide on Kavanaugh

One of Kavanaugh’s accusers to testify tomorrow

Though he’s faced fire for what his opponent charges is indecisiveness on U.S. Supreme nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Bob Hugin is reserving his judgement until after one the judge’s sexual assault accusers testifies on Thursday.

“I think he’s clearly an incredibly qualified, talented jurist,” Hugin said. “I want to watch the hearings tomorrow – I think it’s tomorrow – to make sure I get all of the information. I think everyone should listen to all the testimony, both from any accuser, fully heard, and he should have the opportunity to fully state his case. Then, I’ll make a judgement after that.”

Christine Blasey Ford, who claims Kavanaugh assaulted her at a high school party 35 years ago, when Kavanaugh was 17, is scheduled to testify before the committee on Thursday.

Since Ford first announced her allegations, two others have come out with similar accusations. Deborah Ramirez alleged that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her when they were both attending Yale University, and Julie Swetnick accused the judge of drugging the drinks of women at similar parties in an affidavit.

Swetnick did not claim Kavanaugh assaulted her.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has already scheduled a committee on Kavanaugh’s nomination for Friday.
