Grigg was on ABC7 News shortly after Kavanaugh's nomination was announced, but before allegations of sexual misconduct were made against him by Christine Blasey Ford.

Grigg joined ABC7 News again on Friday to share more about his evolving views in light of these allegations and Kavanaugh's Senate testimony last week.

"I hadn't seen that Brett Kavanaugh before," Grigg said of Kavanaugh's testimony. "I hadn't seen him that angry. I hadn't seen him that fired up."

"A lot of the law school community started buzzing," Grigg added. "Like, 'What was that?'"
