Kavanaugh fight casts long shadow over Jackson hearing

A vitriolic fight over then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is looming over the first day of nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearing.


Several senators on Monday brought up the 2018 Supreme Court battle, when Kavanaugh’s relatively low-key nomination was upended by sexual assault allegations that came out after the Judiciary Commitee had held its hearing with Kavanaugh.
