Brett M. Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process will now include public testimony Monday, before the Senate, from the judge as well as from the person, Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her in the early ’80s.

This, as The Washington Post reports, is a “potentially dramatic and politically perilous hearing that could determine the fate of his nomination.”

Here is how cartoonists from both sides of the political aisle are commenting on the heightening drama:
