Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti told U.S. senators considering his nomination to be ambassador to India that he never witnessed a former top adviser sexually harass one of his police bodyguards, allegations at the heart of a lawsuit filed against his administration.

The mayor made the statement while being questioned by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee members, which was holding a hearing in Washington to consider Garcetti's nomination. President Joe Biden nominated Garcetti for one of the country's highest-profile diplomatic positions in July.
