A group of women who support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh met outside the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, testified Thursday morning to pray for the judge.
> The group, organized by Concerned Women for America (CWA), a public policy women’s organization, predominantly wore black T-shirts with the words, “Women for Kavanaugh” written in white. Others sported shirts that said, "I Stand With Brett." The group was separated from the protesters by a wall of police.
> ABC News White House correspondent Tara Palmeri tweeted a photo of the group standing in the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C., in a circle with heads bowed, praying.
Penny Nance, CEO and president of CWA, said in a statement that though more women have come forward with accusations, the “frenzy” surrounding Kavanaugh’s nomination is based on “unsubstantiated allegations.”
> “Concerned Women for America is committed to standing in support of Judge Kavanaugh, as we have throughout this process,” she said. “We are also committed to much larger goals—protection of the presumption of innocence, support of due process, and pursuit of truth and justice.”
The group of women prayed for President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Kavanaugh and his family.
