Trump stressed that Kavanaugh "never even had a little blemish on his record," adding, "He is somebody very special." The White House was reeling on Monday in the wake of explosive allegations by a California professor, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a party when they were teenagers.
