Last month, Judge Brett M. Ka­vanaugh found him­self in trou­ble. Nom­i­nated in July by Don­ald Trump to be­come the new As­so­ciate Jus­tice of the Supreme Court of the United States, his con­fir­ma­tion process was in its fi­nal stage when a se­ries of al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct broke out. Chris­tine Blasey Ford, a psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sor at Palo Alto Uni­ver­sity, ac­cused Ka­vanaugh of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing her in the 1980s, when they were both teenagers. A sec­ond ac­cuser, Deb­o­rah Ramirez, came for­ward a few days later. Ka­vanaugh de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tions, which he called “smears” in a live in­ter­view for Fox News, and de­clined to with­draw his nom­i­na­tion. Don­ald Trump, as well as sev­eral se­nior Se­nate Repub­li­cans, pub­licly backed Ka­vanaugh when the al­le­ga­tions sur­faced. trou­ble dif­fi­culty / As­so­ciate Jus­tice of the Supreme Court of the United States Amer­i­can Supreme Court judge / stage here, phase / al­le­ga­tion ac­cu­sa­tion / sex­ual mis­con­duct in­ap­pro­pri­ate or il­le­gal sex­ual be­hav­iour / to break, broke, bro­ken out here, to be re­vealed (pub­licly) / to as­sault to at­tack phys­i­cally or sex­u­ally / to come, came, come for­ward to give in­for­ma­tion con­cern­ing / smear defama­tion / to with­draw, drew, drawn to leave, to pull out from / to back to sup­port.
