Wyoming Republican Sen. John Barrasso on Monday compared the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump to the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
.@SenJohnBarrasso: New information coming out now is like what we saw in the Kavanaugh hearings.
“Old information told in a different way to inflame emotions and influence the outcome.”

“I’m not going to let false accusations drive us out of this process, and we’re looking for a fair process where I can be heard and defend my integrity — my lifelong record of promoting dignity and equality for women … I’m not going anywhere,” Kavanaugh said in September of 2018 in an interview with Fox News.

The House of Representatives officially voted Jan. 15 to send the articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate and approved the House’s impeachment managers.
