The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Friday morning at 9:30.

This vote will take place a day after Kavanaugh and one of the two women who accused him of sexual misconduct, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, are scheduled to testify in front of the committee, according to Politico.

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh forcibly pinned her down, covered her mouth, and tried undressing her back when they were in high school over thirty years ago.

Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly refuted these claims and did so again in an interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Monday night. “I want a fair process where I can defend my integrity and I know I’m telling the truth I know my lifelong record and I’m not going to let false accusations drive me out of this process,” he said.
