White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on Monday the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct will be heard as part of sworn testimony before the committee weighing his nomination.
“This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored,” Conway said in an interview with Fox News. She said she had spoken with a number of U.S. senators including Republican Lindsey Graham about the matter. “This woman will be heard.”
