Yale Law School just chose a side in the Kavanaugh confirmation saga in surprise move

Republicans are rushing to confirm Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, even as a wave of sexual misconduct allegations has called into serious question his fitness to serve.


Yesterday, Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, as did his accuser Christine Blasey Ford. He came across a whiny beneficiary of lifelong entitlement and burst into tears at numerous points, comporting himself in a way that showed he lacks the even temperament to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Ford, on the other hand, offered credible testimony that was both levelheaded and deeply emotionally affecting.

Now, it appears that Kavanaugh’s alma mater has been swayed by the hearing. Yale Law School’s official Twitter tweeted out a statement from its dean, Heather Gerken addressing the Kavanaugh scandal.

In it, Gerken called for further investigation into the allegations against Trump’s nominee. She said that she was joining a similar call from the American Bar Association for a delay in the nomination process. As Gerken put it, “proceeding with the confirmation process without further investigation is not in the best interest of the Court or our profession.”

Kavanaugh’s time at Yale has been a serious topic of interest in the past week. He claims that while he drank when he was younger, he never drank to excess and never blacked out from booze. After he testified to that effect yesterday, other Yale alumni began to emerge, accusing him of lying. If he did indeed perjure himself, it’s just one more thing disqualifying him from sitting on our nation’s most powerful court.

Hopefully, Yale’s call for an investigation is heeded, we get to the bottom of this scandal, and a new nominee is chosen.
