Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh will break his TV silence Monday night in an interview with Fox News, during which he is expected to discuss the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez. New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum tweeted Monday that the interview, conducted by Fox’s Martha MacCallum, will be pre-taped and will air in full at 7 p.m. ET. Kavanaugh will also reportedly be joined by his wife, Ashley. In a subsequent tweet, Grynbaum noted that both Kavanaugh and his wife will address the allegations against him. President Trump later tweeted that his nominee would appear on the network for an interview, and wrote that Kavanaugh and his wife were “an outstanding family who must be treated fairly!”
The interview comes after Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982, agreed to testify Thursday, and allegations of sexual misconduct from Ramirez surfaced Sunday night. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations, arguing in a statement that “This is a smear, plain and simple,” but he has not yet given a TV interview on the matter.
