Early Excerpts:

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH ON WHETHER HE’S EVER SEXUALLY ASSAULTED ANYONE:

“The truth is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise. I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place, but what I know is I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone.”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH ON WHETHER HE WAS EVER AT THE PARTY DESCRIBED BY ONE OF HIS ACCUSERS, DR. CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD:

“I was never at any such party. The other people who alleged to be present have said they do not remember any such party. A woman who was present, another woman who was present who was Dr. Ford’s lifelong friend has said she doesn’t know me and never remembers being at a party with me at any time in her life.”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH ON HIS INTEGRITY:

“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. I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people.”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH ON HIS RECORD:

“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. My lifelong record of promoting dignity and equality for women starting with the women who knew me when I was 14 years old. I’m not going anywhere.”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH:

“We’re talking about allegations of sexual assault. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse, or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter, and the girls from the schools I went to and I were friends – ”

MARTHA MACCALLUM:

“So you’re saying through all these years that are in question that you were a virgin?”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH:

“That’s correct.”

MARTHA MACCALLUM:

“Never had sexual intercourse with anyone in high school?”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH:

“Correct.”

MARTHA MACCALLUM:

“And through what years in college, since we’re probing into your personal life here?”

JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH:

“Many years after, I’ll leave it at that. Many years after.”
