Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh refused to use age as a scapegoat for poor behavior in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Monday night.


“Let me ask you this.  Separately from these allegations, is it fair to judge someone on something they did before they were 18-years-old? When they were 17-years-old, should anything they did then follow them later in life or should it enter into any decisions made about them later in life?” MacCallum asked.

Kavanaugh responded, “What I’m here to do is tell you the truth, and this allegation from 36 years ago is not –,” before getting cut off. (RELATED: Brett Kavanaugh Gets Personal, Reveals Details About His Sexual Experiences In High School And College)

“But separately from what you’re being accused of just as a judge, if you were looking at this case as a part from what you’re going through and someone said, ‘This person did that at 17-years-old,’ is it fair to judge them on something like that when they’re in their 50s, 60s year old?” she pushed.

Two women have come forward accusing the judge off sexual misconduct dating back decades. The first allegation came out earlier this month and the more recent one was revealed over the weekend.

He added, “I think everyone is judged on their whole life.  I’m a good person.  I’ve led a good life.  I’ve tried to a lot of good for a lot of people.  I am not perfect, I know that.  None of us is perfect.  I’m not perfect, but I’ve never, never done anything like this.” (RELATED: Kavanaugh’s Asked About The New Yorker’s Journalist Integrity On Running Ramirez Allegations)
