At issue with the accusations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been the fact his first accuser took so long to come forward, make an accusation, and still has yet to publicly speak about the accusations.
However, Republicans won’t be able to use any of that against Kavanaugh’s newest accuser according to her attorney, Michael Avenatti.
The Guardian reported:
‘A third woman is expected to publicly make accusations of sexual misconduct against supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh this week, her attorney Michael Avenatti said, plunging the judge’s confirmation to America’s highest court into further uncertainty.’
Avenatti told The Guardian:
‘She reached out to me. We vetted her claim and she satisfactorily passed that vetting.’
Along with that, she wants to testify before the Senate Judiciary committee.
This news comes after Kavanaugh publicly announced he will not be withdrawing from his nomination for a seat on the Supreme Court.
‘They are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination – if allowed to succeed – will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.’
Also of note is the newest accuser has reportedly worked at the State Department in the past and other government agencies.
‘Warning: My client re Kavanaugh has previously done work within the State Dept, U.S. Mint, & DOJ. She has been granted multiple security clearances in the past including Public Trust & Secret. The GOP and others better be very careful in trying to suggest that she is not credible.’
