‘Our Faith Is Strong:’ Kavanaugh’s Wife Never Doubted Him After Accusations

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashely says she never doubted her husband’s denial of two decades-old sexual assault allegations against him, in an exclusive interview on Fox News.

“This process is incredibly difficult. Harder than we imagined, and we imagined it might be hard. But, hmmm, at the end of the day our faith is strong. We know we are on the right path. We will stick to it,” Ashely Kavanaugh said.

Kavanaugh’s wife added that she never doubted her husband’s denials saying “I have known him for 17 years. This is not at all — it’s really hard to believe. He is decent, kind, good. I know his heart. This is not consistent with Brett.”

Kavanaugh will testify before the judiciary committee Thursday alongside his accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

A new allegation against Kavanaugh surfaced Sunday evening detailing an alleged account from Kavanaugh’s freshman year at Yale University. The story presented by his second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, surfaced in The New Yorker and alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken raucous party.

Ramirez is the second woman to come forward with decades-old sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward in the Washington Post alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her while he was age 17 and she was age 15, though she does not remember many key details. The people Ford alleges were at the party with Kavanaugh when he allegedly sexually assaulted her have also not confirmed her account.
