Maybe it will at least provide extra motivation for women to vote against the party who put an alleged sexual predator on the SC in November.If the accusations by and testimony of Anita Hill couldn’t stop Clarence Thomas appointment to the US Supreme Court, this 35 year old accusation against Kavanaugh will do nothing either.
This does not surprise me.And the Senate Judiciary committee just happened to have had a list of 65 women who allegedly knew Kavanaugh in high school and say he never acted inappropriate at the ready. What a convenient coincidence.
I don't think any of this matters. I think what matters is that Republicans knew and kept it from the public.This does not surprise me.
I wonder if this was what Rachel Maddow was referring to when she stated on her show (last night or night before, my days run together) that some background information had been forwarded to the FBI and it was provided by Senator Diane Feinstein. If so, it means that if the FBI was aware and notified the WH, they had plenty of time to make those preparations. FBI background reports are done for all potential government employees, including judges.
It was a letter that contained an accusation. She had way of knowing if it was true or not. She referred the matter to the FBI to be investigated. Can you imagine what would have happened if she'd just released an accusing letter without having anything to back up the allegations? She would have been torn to shreds and no one would have taken the allegations seriously. They would have been viewed as a partisan fabrication and been dismissed.Feinstein knew first
I wouldn't be surprised if true. The statute of limitations probably has passed already, and it's a he-said-she-said case.Fox News is reporting that the FBI will not be investigating the allegations against Kavanaugh. It's bad enough they force me to watch Fox News at work, but to have to watch this.......
I read the Ronan Farrow article. It had quotes from the woman's lawyer as well as a timeline. It said she sent letters to Anna Eshoo and Feinstein after a lot of thought and talk with friends after the nomination was announced.
And the admission of sexual assault did not keep Trump from winning the election. So I don't think this has any teeth.If the accusations by and testimony of Anita Hill couldn’t stop Clarence Thomas appointment to the US Supreme Court, this 35 year old accusation against Kavanaugh will do nothing either.
Doesn’t everyone have a letter in storage containing all the people vouching for one? As for the letter itself, I liken it to Jeffery Dahmer producing a letter from all the people he didn’t kill, dismember and store in a freezer.And the Senate Judiciary committee just happened to have had a list of 65 women who allegedly knew Kavanaugh in high school and say he never acted inappropriate at the ready. What a convenient coincidence.
Well, it looks like it is quite credible (read link in post above).This better be a credible allegation, or this is truly evil.
He'll be arrested about as soon as Trump will be impeached.He’s going to be arrested soon
Maryland has no statute of limitations anymore so he can be arrested. He needs to be in prison for his sexual assault.He'll be arrested about as soon as Trump will be impeached.
I believe the statute of limitations has passed, but that doesn't mean that the allegation should be pursued to weigh in on Kavanagh's fitness to be appointed to the SCOTUS.
