During the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas in 1991, Senate Democrats chose not to call Angela Wright, a former colleague of Judge Thomas’s who was prepared to accuse him of sexual misconduct. Only Anita Hill testified about experiencing harassment by Judge Thomas. He consistently denied her allegations and was ultimately confirmed.
Ms. Wright, in a recent interview from her home in Charlotte, N.C., reflected on both the Hill-Thomas hearings and the Judiciary Committee session scheduled for Thursday featuring Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual assault when they were teenagers. Like Ms. Hill, Dr. Blasey will not be joined by other witnesses who have made accusations against the nominee.
