Mississippi Senator Delivers Speech on Kavanaugh


By WXXV Staff

Mississippi Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith delivered a speech in Washington today in defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The senator’s speech comes just before the senate judiciary committee hearing tomorrow to review Kavanaugh’s nomination.

After a third person has accused of sexual misconduct, Hyde-Smith characterized Kavanaugh’s opponents as “engaging in character assassination to destroy the reputation of a devoted public servant.”

“Today I am compelled by duty to our country and the people of Mississippi to speak in strong and unyielding support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. I have had conversations with several colleagues who tell me they have never seen such chaos and hatred as we are witnessing in this confirmation process. Now, I want to be clear, my heart breaks for victims of assault and abuse. It’s an issue that must never be taken lightly, that is why unproven accusations are so very unjust.”

Tomorrow’s hearings are scheduled for 10 a.m. in Washington.
