As Washington reels from an accusation of sexual misconduct levied against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has absolutely denied the allegation, those who have known him are speaking up in his defense. Rachel del Guidice scored an exclusive interview with one of 65 women who knew Kavanaugh in high school and signed a letter vouching for his character. Plus: a new study suggests that teens raised with religion have better lives.
