Trump: #Kavanaugh’s never had even a little blemish. I have great faith in the Senate and their process. If it [confirmation] has to be delayed a little, then it will be. Feinstein had this information and didn’t bring it up. It should’ve been brought up a long time ago. #SCOTUS
GOP @SenatorCollins: #Kavanaugh was emphatic in denying sexual assault allegations. Obviously if he lied about it, it would be disqualifying.
“Disqualifying”—Susan Collins is the first Senate Republican to say the word out loud: “Obviously if Judge Kavanaugh has lied about what happened, that would be disqualifying.” He should obviously withdraw, but that’s a precedent Trump might have to follow
Why are Republicans so desperately clinging to as weak a Supreme Court nominee as Kavanaugh, stunningly & credibly accused of attempted rape? @Lawrence: Because they’re counting on Kavanaugh saving Trump from a Mueller subpoena. All roads truly lead to Russia (investigation)
Following death threats if she testifies against Kavanaugh, Dr Blasey Ford is in hiding. She’s moved out of her home, is arranging for private security for herself and her family—including 2 teenage kids. This is why women stay silent.…
It’s disgusting and frankly nuts that Republicans won’t just withdraw Kavanaugh. Only pain & spectacle can result from old white men tearing down a credible sexual assault victim made to justify her trauma. GOP broke Congress and the Presidency. Now they’ll taint Supreme Court.
We also must ask whether Kavanaugh will be affected by his reported anger & anxiety when hearing cases involving women's issues. And can women have faith in his impartiality after the spectacle? He is a flawed nominee and should be withdrawn ASAP. Surely there are better people.
Trump says FBI doesn't investigate. Now Graham says an FBI investigation isn't about finding truth?? They're admitting Republicans are worried about the midterms. They want a show & get Kavanaugh on SCOTUS quickly. The courts are their best issue to hold onto Congress and power.
Here's the other reason Republicans want to move quickly on #Kavanaugh. With more time, more people and witnesses come forward. This woman attended the same high school & remembers the people & incident. She writes "The incident did happen. Many of us heard about it in school"
If #Kavanaugh is certain the sexual assault incident never happened, then why isn't HE asking for an FBI investigation to clear his good name?? Furthermore, as @Lawrence eloquently observes, people who make up stories don't ask the FBI to investigate their stories.
@Lawrence "The Supreme Court is one of the main reasons I got elected"—Trump knows Kavanaugh is a must win. SCOTUS is the only positive in an otherwise endless loop of corruption, incompetence, cruelty, scandal, crisis. Immigrant family separations FFS, abuses of power, more wild every day
Confidant of Dr Blasey Ford: She has nothing to gain and much to lose by going public with her story. This event was serious enough to have a lasting impact…including her need to have more than one exit door in her bedroom to prevent her from being trapped. #Kavanaugh
FYI Women can be as sexist & partisan as men. @SenatorCollins is pushing for a rush hearing where Dr Ford testifies before old Republican men—some of whom tried to destroy Anita Hill in 1991 & have learned little since. @SenFeinstein respecting privacy is “unfair” to #Kavanaugh??
@CNNPolitics @SenatorCollins @lisamurkowski @JeffFlake @BobCorker @SenatorTimScott @ChuckGrassley @LindseyGrahamSC @SenFeinstein @SenatorLeahy @SenKamalaHarris @maziehirono Disturbing stories like this are why Republicans are in a rush & do NOT want an investigation👉'No accident' Kavanaugh's female law clerks 'looked like models.' Yale law profs told women to look good & send photos to #Kavanaugh if they wanted clerkship OMG…
@lisamurkowski @JeffFlake @BobCorker @SenatorTimScott @ChuckGrassley @LindseyGrahamSC @SenFeinstein @SenatorLeahy @SenKamalaHarris @maziehirono >>@benjaminwittes: #Kavanaugh nomination should be withdrawn. Republicans' haste to ram him thru w/o investigation is humiliating, esp for him, suggesting they have little faith he can overcome credible, disqualifying sexual assault allegations… #SCOTUS
Wow Hatch got the “she’s mixed up” idea from #Kavanaugh himself, who reportedly told him Ford had the wrong guy, that he never attended a party like the one described. Plan is to raise doubts the attacker was Kavanaugh, not dispute the incident happened.…
“A week of smears. A week of lies”—@brianstelter covers the ugly disinformation campaign in right-wing media websites & Foxnews pushing in-credible conspiracy theories to attack Dr Blasey Ford’s credible story & memory of being sexually assaulted by SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh
.@LindseyGrahamSC Says Ford Testimony Won't Change His Vote: "I want to listen to her, but what am I supposed to do? Ruin this guy’s life based on an accusation?" (I think he's supposed to do his duty to investigate before voting on SCOTUS nom)… #Kavanaugh
