How to Watch the Brett Kavanaugh-Christine Blasey Ford Senate Hearing Online

Three ways to stream the Kavanaugh hearing online for free

Brett Kavanaugh hearing

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will stand in front of Congress on Thursday at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET, where he will testify on sexual assault accusations from Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford.

Ford has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party they both attended while still in high school. Ford was the first out of three women to come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh, who has repeatedly denied them.

The Judiciary Committee will vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination on Friday, just one day after he testifies in front of Congress.
