U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford appear headed to an extraordinary public hearing next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Ford’s accusation that the nominee sexually assaulted her when they were high school students more than three decades ago.

Ford is set to testify Thursday, according to the committee. The nation has not experienced such a highly-charged Supreme Court confirmation since Anita Hill accused now-Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment 27 years ago.
