Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska gave an impassioned speech Wednesday night on the Senate floor about sexual assault and the #MeToo movement.
Sasse also dropped a bombshell about where he stood on Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court, saying he had pushed for a different candidate before Trump chose Kavanaugh.
"I urged the president to nominate a different individual," Sasse said. "I urged the president to nominate a woman."
He recounted the experiences of two friends he said were raped, saying the #MeToo movement had been "complicated" but also a "very good thing."
