SUPREME COURT NOM­I­NEE DE­NIES MIS­CON­DUCT CLAIM

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - WORLD - The As­so­ci­ated Press, with files from Post­media News

Supreme Court nom­i­nee Brett Ka­vanaugh on Fri­day de­nied an al­le­ga­tion of sex­ual mis­con­duct from when he was in high school, seek­ing to defuse a po­ten­tial threat to his con­fir­ma­tion. In a state­ment re­leased by the White House, Ka­vanaugh said: “I cat­e­gor­i­cally and un­equiv­o­cally deny this al­le­ga­tion.” Se­nate Repub­li­cans in­sist Ka­vanaugh’s con­fir­ma­tion re­mains on track. But the al­le­ga­tion has in­flamed an al­ready in­tense po­lit­i­cal battle over Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s nom­i­nee.
