The lawyer of Kavanaugh’s 2nd accuser just exposed a coverup by Senate Republicans

The lawyer who represents Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to come forward with accusations of sexual harassment committed by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has taken to Twitter to ask why the Republicans who control the Senate Judiciary Committee have refused to meet with him and won’t facilitate an FBI investigation into her allegations.


Attorney John Clune announced that he would appear on CNN tonight on Anderson Cooper 360 to speak about Ms. Ramirez’s claim and the non-responsiveness of the Judiciary Committee to his requests for a forum for her explosive accusations.

Clune’s final question is the same one that has been bouncing around the brains of any reasonable person following Kavanaugh’s confirmation saga. With not one, but two women willing to subject themselves to the scrutiny of an FBI investigation that would result in criminal penalties for them if they were found to be bearing false witness, how can the committee continue to roll forward with the confirmation process based on the word of a nominee who has thus far refused to subject himself to a further unbiased investigation of the facts?

How can they refuse to hear from the credible contemporary classmates who went to Yale with Kavanaugh and Ramirez, including the nominee’s own college roommate who has said that he believes the accuser over Kavanaugh whom he described as “aggressive and even belligerent” when drunk?

With Kavanagh parroting his White House-fed talking points on Fox News over and over again in his interview yesterday, claiming repeatedly that he just wants a fair hearing, how can anyone believe a fair hearing is possible with a thorough investigation of the facts by an unbiased outside source?

With Republicans trying everything they can to sweep the latest accusations under the carpet, chances are good that they will try to push for a vote to pass the nomination through to the full Senate before any investigation of the facts can be conducted. Such a move will be as big a tragedy—or perhaps farce would be a better descriptor—as their vindictive failure to even hold a hearing for President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland during the former president’s last year in office.

Having gotten away with that despicable move, the Republicans feel entitled to place anyone they want on the Supreme Court, ethics, alleged perjury, and sexual assault notwithstanding.

They must be stopped. If that doesn’t motivate you to vote for Democrats in November, then nothing ever will.
