In an unprecedented move, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh appeared on Fox News to defend himself against sexual assault allegations.
“We talked with our Supreme Court reporter, who says that Clarence Thomas did an interview with People Magazine after his confirmation hearing and after he was confirmed. But this is the first time we’ve ever seen anything like this,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said on Monday’s show.
Political commentator, Symone Sanders said that Kavanaugh’s response shows that he might be guilty.
“This signals to me that Judge Kavanaugh thinks he’s in trouble,” she said. “He thinks he’s in so much trouble that it is in his best interest to go out there with a prebuttal before the American people —or at least the Fox News viewers.”
Sanders continued, “I think it’s telling that Dr. Ford has not run to the cameras. She is not running to People Magazine, Variety, or Vanity Fair. Her only incentive is to tell the truth. Frankly, this makes Judge Kavanaugh look real iffy.”

Trump ignores controversy to host Turkey’s Erdogan
President Donald Trump will leap from the frying pan of impeachment into the fire of foreign policy controversy when he hosts his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House on Wednesday.
On the day that the impeachment process shifts to the dramatic phase of public hearings in Congress, Trump's meeting and joint press conference with Erdogan at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue promises extra fireworks.
Trump and Erdogan have good chemistry and the US president often seems to get along better with foreign strongmen than traditional US allies in places such as Western Europe or Canada.
‘Pad Man’ faces ‘Terminator’ in Sri Lanka vote fight
Sri Lanka's presidential election on Saturday is turning out to be a showdown between a man offering free sanitary pads and a former soldier dubbed the "Terminator" by his own family.
Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, 70, a retired army lieutenant colonel, was the de facto military chief who crushed Tamil guerrillas and ended a 37-year separatist war, but Saturday's vote is his battle of ballots.
His family calls him Sri Lanka's "Terminator" because he promises to fight corruption and Islamic extremism, a key issue since the Easter Sunday suicide bombings this year that killed 269 people.
In contrast to the tough-talking Rajapaksa, his main challenger, Sajith Premadasa, a low-key politician, is hoping to appeal to women voters with promises to improve menstrual hygiene.
