The Republican Party

You've probably heard about the New Yorker bombshell which has another woman coming forward to say that Kavanaugh drunkenly assaulted her. They were freshmen, it was a drinking game, and Kavanaugh allegedly pulled out his penis and put it in her face. You will hear a lot more about it over the next day or so I'm sure.

I just want to highlight the opening paragraph:

As Senate Republicans press for a swift vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The claim dates to the 1983-84 academic school year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University. The offices of at least four Democratic senators have received information about the allegation, and at least two have begun investigating it. Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The New Yorker, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote.

They wouldn't let the FBI investigate. They concocted a ridiculous "doppleganger" conspiracy theory and blamed an innocent man for the assault. They went nuts trying to get him on the court before anyone found out.

What scumbags they all are.
