Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has, like that of Clarence Thomas before him, been thrown into chaos with an eleventh-hour allegation of sexual misconduct.

There are very few things I’m sure of in the latest, and worst, chapter in the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation saga. It’s like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” book in which every chapter ends with a thud at the bottom of an old well or the clanking shut of a dungeon door. What if Christine Blasey Ford is ... Read More
