After Kavanaugh accuser comes forward only two of his 65 female former classmates still stand by the letter of support they signed.

Not a good sign for ole Brett.

Courtesy of Politico:

Kavanaugh’s defenders included four of the 65 high-school acquaintances who signed an open letter last week vouching for his character after the allegations were first reported.

“I stand by the letter I signed. I do not know this woman,” said Stephanie Conway McGill by email on Sunday, referring to Ford. McCaleb added, “I absolutely stand by the letter we signed.”

“I 100 percent stand behind my letter,” Julie DeVol, another of the women who signed the letter, told POLITICO Monday.

“The Brett Kavanaugh I know is a good and decent person, and I have never seen him treat women with anything but respect,” Virginia Hume wrote on Twitter Monday.

More than two dozen of the women who signed onto the letter did not immediately respond when contacted by POLITICO on Sunday about whether they still stood behind their defense of Kavanaugh. Two of the women who signed the letter declined to comment.

So wait, now only two of the 65 women that Brett Kavanaugh did not attempt to rape are still convinced that he is not actually capable of attempting rape? 

I wonder if those two will still be as sure once they hear Christine Margaret Blasey testify? 

Earlier today Donald Trump finally weighed in and surprising resisted attacking Kavanaugh’s accuser. 

I’m not sure how long Trump can hold out but for right now he is keeping his powder dry.

      “Last year’s additions are made of up three federal appeals court judges and two state Supreme Court justices. Two of the additions are women:

      Amy Coney Barrett, a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit
      Britt Grant, a Georgia state Supreme Court justice
      Brett Kavanaugh, a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit
      Kevin Newsom, a judge on the US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit
      Patrick Wyrick, an Oklahoma state Supreme Court justice

      Shortly after the list was updated last year, the White House counsel Don McGahn gave a hat tip to the new potential nominees during a speech to the Federalist Society, the conservative legal group that frequently weighs in on the Trump administration’s federal judicial nominees. The audience applauded and cheered as McGahn read the five names.”
      ” Trump reportedly told multiple people in private he believed he would be able to fill three more Supreme Court seats — those of Kennedy as well as Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. According to the news website Axios, Trump cited the 84-year-old Ginsburg’s age and Sotomayor’s health — she has Type 1 diabetes — as reasons he believed their seats would soon be vacant.”

        So, Kavanaugh was added to the list in 2017 and in that same year, over $200,000 in credit card debt disappeared? Amazing.

    Every 98 seconds another American is sexually assaulted. Victims are women, children, and men. (1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime) They are biased by ignorance. Real life isn’t a cartoon, the bad guy doesn’t come wearing a black scarf around his eyes and a skull warning on his forehead. No, the real bad guys come with all of the accoutrements of power. They are supported and enabled by many, including other women. A skilled predator is always ready to defend themselves.

    There are only two reasons why Republicans won’t allow a proper vetting of this man: One, they know it will not end well for him or two, they are in such a rush to confirm him because they need him on the court for some other reason.

    Neither of these reasons is “justice.” Republicans can’t read a room. They’ve got their 1980s playbook, but this is 2018. Women have had two years to deal with pain of having a known sexual assaulter as president. <GOT THAT RIGHT!

    The more Republicans attack Ford, the more it looks like Ford might have not just a point, but perhaps is the tip of the iceberg.

    Even if Kavanaugh is not guilty of this, the attack Republicans are engaging in enables rapists and predators. They are attacking the alleged victim, saying she’s a liar with bad motives — when in fact it is the man here who has a reason to lie. This is unconscionable in the days of #MeToo.

    “The White House hasn’t asked the FBI to investigate the allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman when they were in high school, a request required for the bureau to take further action”

      Sorry, I don’t believe the FBI isn’t going to investigate this and that only the White House requesting it will allow it to go forward. Trump might ask them to refrain from investigating, in which case it’s just another instance of obstruction, but I don’t believe the FBI’s hands are tied. Plus, I believe they’ll investigate it anyway, permission, direction, whatever or not. I also believe the results will somehow come out.

    “Elsewhere on QAnon 8chan, conspiracy theorists found a Facebook pornbot named Christine Ford and attacked it as though it were Ford herself. It wasn’t. Nevertheless, posters wrote that the porn account was unqualified to be a professor while others accused her of being an asset of the CIA’s long-defunct MK Ultra program.

    Like many 8chan threads, the comments quickly devolved into porn, open anti-semitism, and pro-Hitler memes.”

    “A page called Personal Liberty, associated with 9/11 truther columnist Bob Livingston, bought a handful of ads asking readers to vote in a poll questioning whether Ford’s allegations are “legitimate or a desperate smear tactic by Democrats.””

    OT? FOR ‘Hillary Clinton writes op-ed eviscerating Donald Trump and his administration.’
    CONsider Brett Kavanaugh’s record: He’s a political operative who spread sleazy Clinton rumors he knew were false His first big job for the movement was as Ken Starr’s point man on the Vince Foster case.”
    “The Republicans are already shrieking about the Democrats playing dirty pool, which is as ironic as it gets. It was Republicans who threw away the rule book to hold a Supreme Court seat open for nearly a year so they could appoint a hard-right conservative. Kavanaugh asked everyone involved about this nonexistent affair between Clinton and Foster — even, eventually, Clinton herself. It later became clear that Kavanaugh knew all along that Foster had committed suicide, and that he had used the power and resources of the independent counsel’s office to lend credibility to vulgar sexual rumors about the first lady, in the process needlessly torturing the family of a dead man.

    Let’s just say there is more than one way to assault someone. In this case, which is proven, he assaulted two women: Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster’s widow, Elizabeth.

    “After Kavanaugh accuser comes forward only two of his 65 female former classmates still stand by the letter of support they signed.”

    But this article mentions four women who still support Kavanaugh.

    “I stand by the letter I signed. I do not know this woman,” said Stephanie Conway McGill by email on Sunday, referring to Ford.

    McCaleb added, “I absolutely stand by the letter we signed.”

    “I 100 percent stand behind my letter,” Julie DeVol, another of the women who signed the letter, told POLITICO Monday.

    “The Brett Kavanaugh I know is a good and decent person, and I have never seen him treat women with anything but respect,” Virginia Hume wrote on Twitter Monday.

    So I don’t quite understand why it is written only two women still support him.

    THEY locked the door ‘go for ~IT~’! “Premeditation and “malice aforethought” means that the crime was premeditated, and the perpetrator held malice for the victim. Malice means, in legal terms, according to the legal dictionary,
    “The intentional commission of a wrongful act, absent justification, with the intent to cause harm to others; conscious violation of the law that injures another individual; a mental state indicating a disposition in disregard of social duty and a tendency toward malfeasance.” ~IT~’s usually used in murder cases.”
    “This kind of crime, planned out and perpetrated with such contempt for the victim, is a serious mark against the perpetrator’s alleged character, and clearly rules him out – if credible and found to be true – as a Judge anywhere.
    “Locker room rape” is not a thing.
    Assaults like this change a person forever, and destroy their confidence and faith in humanity and their sense of safety while doing normal things”
    “Women are not objects to be abused and discarded while laughing.”
