This show begins with coverage of first day's hearings on Capitol Hill.
They involve a college professor's accusations against a U.S. Supreme Court nominee and the nominee's response. While this show does not go into graphic detail, it does include portions of the opening statements from the two main people involved. Those people are Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California and Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a U.S. Appeals Court Judge who's President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court.

In late July, Dr. Ford gave a letter to Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein. In it the professor accused the judge of having sexually assaulted her while they were high school students in 1982. Senator Feinstein shared the letter with the FBI in mid-September. At that time, the Senate Judiciary Committee was preparing to vote on it's recommendation to the full Senate on whether to confirm Judge Kavanaugh to the High Court. The Judiciary Committee put it's vote on hold and invited both Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh to discuss these accusations on Capitol Hill. They appeared yesterday.
CARL AZUZ: Following the two testimonies yesterday, it was once again in the hands of the Senate Judiciary Committee to determine whether to recommend confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That committee vote was scheduled for Friday.
