White House Stands By Kavanaugh On Alleged Sex Attack Allegations: ‘We Can All Be Accused Of Something’
A lawyer close to the White House said the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court will not be withdrawn after Palo Alto (Calif.) University professor Christine Blasey Ford told The Washington Post that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to rip off her clothes during a high school party.
The lawyer told POLITICO that any man could be accused of what Kavanaugh allegedly did:
If somebody can be brought down by accusations like this, then you, me, every man certainly should be worried. We can all be accused of something.
Senate Republicans have pledged to move forward with a vote on Kavanaugh in part because Ford’s allegations have been anonymous until now.
Kavanaugh has denied the he ever took part in an assault on Ford.
Fox News reporter Samuel Chamberlain tweeted that White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah told Fox News: “[W]e are standing with Judge Kavanaugh’s denial,”
