Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is speaking form the Senate floor. He said the Democrats sat on the sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh and accused them of waiting until the "11th hour" before Kavanaugh's confirmation vote to bring it up.
"It is an accusation which the ranking member of the committee of jurisdiction has known about for at least six weeks. Known about for six weeks. Yet chose to keep secret until the 11th hour," he said.
McConnell did not answer questions as he left the Senate floor, including:
- “Are you confident you can salvage this nomination at this point?”
- “Should she come testify before the committee?”
- “Do you believe her charges? Do you believe they are credible?”
