'It Was Heartbreaking': Friend of Kavanaugh Reacts to Hearings, FBI Probe
A friend of Brett Kavanaugh who has known the judge since high school said on Fox & Friends that Thursday's hearing with Christine Blasey Ford was "heartbreaking."
Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, and their hours-long hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee became highly emotional at times.
Missy Carr was one of the more than 60 women who signed a letter vouching for Kavanaugh's integrity and said Saturday that she's frustrated by what she is seeing.
"This is not the guy that we knew in high school," she said. "He's the last person who I would suspect to do this."
President Trump ordered the FBI to conduct a "supplemental" investigation into the accusations against Kavanaugh on Friday, at the request of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The committee voted 11-10 in favor of sending Kavanaugh's nomination to the full Senate, but Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) surprisingly called for the probe.
Carr doesn't recall seeing Ford within any social circles she and Kavanaugh were a part of, she said on Saturday.
She added that a USA Today article saying Kavanaugh should distance himself from coaching girls’ basketball amid the allegations is heartbreaking as well.
"It's heartbreaking to see that he's being destroyed on every level for something that I stand by him that he did not do."
