Three Kavanaugh supporters reverse course, call for investigation of sexual assault allegations
Several of the people who quickly jumped to support Brett Kavanaugh when Donald Trump nominated him to the Supreme Court have slowed their roll and are calling for an investigation into the sexual assault allegations against him. Kavanaugh’s former Yale Law School classmates Kent Sinclair, Douglas Rutzen, and Mark Osler had signed on to a letter lauding not just his intellect and knowledge of the law but his “friendly manner, good sense of humor and humility.”
… in a joint statement to The Washington Post on Tuesday, Sinclair and Rutzen said that new allegations require “a fair and credible investigation.”
“The confirmation process should be conducted in a way that fosters trust in the process and the Supreme Court, and that seriously considers allegations of sexual violence,” stated Sinclair, a political independent who practices law in Beverly, Mass., and Rutzen, a lawyer in Washington and registered Democrat.
Most of the 60 plus women who signed a letter supporting Kavanaugh did not actually support him when read the whole letter. How many of those women will support him now that he has allegations of gang rape against him?
