The Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday released the opening remarks that Brett Kavanaugh intends to make during the hearing on Thursday. In the prepared statement, he plans to call the allegations of sexual misconduct levied against him in recent days “grotesque and obvious character assassination.”

The remarks were reportedly posted around the same time that new, shocking allegations by a third woman were made public on Wednesday afternoon.
