Brett Kavanaugh

The latest on Brett Kavanaugh. Appointed by former President Donald Trump to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court in 2018, he was later confirmed by the U.S. Senate in a 50-48 vote. During his confirmation hearings, multiple women came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, which he denied. The Senate Judiciary Committee looked into those claims and voted to advance his nomination to a full Senate vote. Before serving on the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh served as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia from 2006 to 2018, and in the administration of former President George W. Bush.
