Brett Kavanaugh, and His Accuser, Are Willing to Testify Before Senate Committee

Supreme Court nominee issues first comment since Christine Blasey Ford came public

By Peter Nicholas and Kristina Peterson
Updated Sept. 17, 2018 11:15 a.m. ET

The woman who has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers is willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the episode, her attorney said Monday, shortly before the Supreme Court nominee again denied the allegation and said he would also talk to the committee.

I do want this man to get confirmed as supreme court judge (for some non-conventional reasons, I admit).

As I said, I think the man lives in the 19th century with his views on society, but I do not believe any of these accusations...

The secret bank accounts of these women do pretty well, I assume.

They should leave him alone, the Fox journalist embarrassed him enough when she managed him to 'confess' on national TV that he remained a virgin during his school years and several years thereafter :-) :-) :-)

The man is really what the US needs for the next 40 years: a rich, white conservative with the moral principles of a cavemen who will take hold of your justice and law... The best possible legacy of a Trump legislation for the coming decades.

Clarence Thomas, 'high-tech lynching' indeed!#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#To see a party in the Democrats that has an actual history of lynching men on the word of baseless accusations, #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#advocating and cheering for the destruction of a man with no evidence is chilling.

Such accusations are routine, garden variety occurrences at prep and private schools.

Christine Ford was quite credible. Even Trump admitted she was 'compelling.'

And he is confirmed!

Trump now leaves a legacy for the next 20-30 years with a Conservative Supreme Court that will defend the interests of the rich, Christian, white-male right-wing republicans (like his kids and the kids of his multi-millionaire friends).

Anyone belonging to the ‘wrong’ gender, race, religion or sexual orientation can stop campaigning for social improvement in US society for the next decades. That train has left the station.

I stand astounded that so many Progressives have still learned nothing from Brexit to Trump#ed_op#br#ed_cl#(along with many other countries moving back towards the right). Identity politics based on #ed_op#br#ed_cl#gender, race, class, ect...designed to disregard or marginalize anyone that dares question #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#ever evolving progressives norms has backfired and will continue to. Then again, it looks like #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#the only card in the deck they can play and hope it works as it has for the past couple of decades. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#The continued vilification of common sense and rantings of xenophobia, homophobia, misogyny, #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#racism, ect...for those standing for national sovereignty, western rule of law, and basic traditional#ed_op#/div#ed_cl##ed_op#div#ed_cl#values will have the opposite of the progressive desired effect.#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#/div#ed_cl#
