WATCH LIVE: Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing


Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is set to face a second round of questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. He’s expected to be questioned about his views on previous Supreme Court cases, as well as a range of policy issues. Kavanaugh is also likely to be questioned about his work on Ken Starr’s independent counsel investigation of former President Bill Clinton, and his time working in the White House under former President George W. Bush.

NPR will offer live streaming video for the hearing. We expect this hearing to begin at 9:30a ET. We expect the committee to enter a closed session around 6:00p ET. Due to the nature of live hearings, note that all times are approximate and subject to change, often with very short notice.

You can also listen to NPR's live coverage of the hearing all week on BPR News - 107.9 FM in Asheville, 103.1 FM in Hendersonville, 101.5 FM in Brevard, 90.5 FM in Mars Hill, 98.3 FM in Waynesville-Hazelwood, and 99.1 FM in Bryson City.
