Judge Brett Kavanaugh broke down in tears during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday while he was explaining the significance of the calendars he has kept for the past 38 years.
“Why did I keep calendars? My dad started keeping detailed calendars of his life in 1978. He did so as both a calendar and a diary,” Kavanaugh said. “He’s a very organized guy, to put it mildly.” (RELATED: Grassley’s Office Expresses Frustration Over Democrats’ ‘Political Takedown’ Of Kavanaugh)
Kavanaugh choked up and stumbled over his words while he talked about the “old milestones, old weddings, old events” detailed in his calendars that his family has discussed together such as over the Christmas holiday. His voice quivered at times, leaving him momentarily unable to talk.
“In 9th grade in 1980, I started keeping calendars of my own — for me also it’s both a calendar and a diary. I’ve kept such calendar diaries for the last 38 years. Mine are not as good as my dad’s,” Kavanaugh continued. “And when I was a kid the calendars are about what you’d expect from a kid — some goofy parts, some embarrassing parts — but I did have the summer of 1982 documented pretty well.”

Christine Blasey Ford alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during the summer of 1982. Ford has said that she cannot remember details of the incident including the time, place or location. Kavanaugh’s calendar shows a busy schedule during the summer in question.
