Brett Kavanaugh has shared the lime light and become a significant part of the White House Staff Secretary. President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States after Anthony Kennedy chose to retire.
Just like the #MeToo campaign brought up many victims and their accusers forward a psychology professor at Palo Alto University came forward to tell her story because she wanted the senators to have a better understanding of Brett Kavanaugh’s history and his character as they vetted him for the supreme court. Kavanaugh has denied the accusation but in an interview that Washington Post did with Christine she revealed that at a party in Montgomery county, Maryland, Kavanaugh led her into a bedroom, pinned her to the bed and groped her, attempting to remove the bathing suit she was wearing and putting his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming before she was able to escape.
Christine contacted Washington Post when Kavanaugh was shortlisted as nominee, and apart from the interview with Washington Post she also wrote a letter to Democrat Anna Eshoo describing the alleged incident.
Anna passed the letter to California senator Dianne Feinstein who is on Senate judiciary committee. Dianne did not disclose the allegations instead released a cryptic statement saying she had” received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the supreme court” and simultaneously provided the letter to the FBI.
This alleged incident can harm his nominations. Voting from the judiciary committee was delayed since there was a hearing held on the allegations.
The Judiciary committee scheduled a hearing to hear from Christine and Kavanaugh on their side of the incident. Christine’s lawyer also called upon the FBI to investigate the charges prior to the hearing, But republicans rejected the call as it would delay the hearing even further.
But despite all this, President Donald Trump and Republicans have increased their support for Kavanaugh and said they will move forward with confirmation process next week despite the delay hearings.
President Donald Trump expressed his emotions by saying that Christine should definitely have the opportunity to state her case but according to hearings he said they would establish that Kavanaugh is innocent.
