Analysis: Kavanaugh case shows little has changed for Judiciary Committee

© AFP/Getty Images/Holton-Arms School As the nation awaits the resolution of another woman confronting another Supreme Court nominee with sexual allegations from the past, another similarity has emerged: the credibility of the Senate vetting process may be shot. In 1991, after the Senate Judiciary Committee faltered in its initial handling of Anita Hill’s sexual harassment complaint against Clarence Thomas, it reopened the confirmation hearings. The result was a spectacle of senators’ charges and cross-charges as they seemed locked in their partisan views without regard for the facts. “Anita Hill will be sucked right into the very thing she wanted to avoid most,” Sen. Alan Simpson, a Wyoming Republican who supported Thomas, warned when Hill’s complaint first b...

© REUTERS/Alex Wroblewski U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies in Washington A growing number of Americans said they opposed President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as the candidate’s confirmation hearings took place and as he fended off a sexual assault claim, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed. The Sept. 11-17 poll found that 36 percent  of adults surveyed did not want Kavanaugh in the Supreme Court, up 6 points from a similar poll conducted a month earlier.
