8 monthes ago   |   By Slate

Facing mounting accusations of sexual misconduct, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his wife Ashley Estes Kavanaugh sat down for an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum that aired Monday night.

We Didn't Call It Rape

8 monthes ago   |   By Slate

Sunday evening, the New Yorker published a second allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. But it wasn't just the new allegation that caught my attention. There's a paragraph that appears late in the piece in which Elizabeth Rasor, the high school girlfriend of Mark Judge-the man Christine Blasey Ford alleges was in the room when Kavanaugh assaulted her-says that Judge once admitted to what would now be called a potential case of gang rape. This passage does not directly address the new allegation against Kavanaugh, but it does corroborate the kind of...

Democratic senators who have rallied behind Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh are doing the same for a second woman who accused the Supreme Court nominee - though they acknowledge she came forward with doubts about her memory. Multiple Democrats told POLITICO on Monday that they see Deborah Ramirez's account in The New Yorker as credible - if not airtight - evidence for a case that President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee has a pattern of untoward behavior toward women. They want the Judiciary Committee to postpone Thursday's planned hearing where Ford and Kavanaugh are...
