Kellyanne Questions Kavanaugh’s ‘So-Called Accuser’: Feels Like ‘Vast Left Wing Conspiracy’

Kellyanne Conway appeared on CBS News Monday and called into question the new allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused by a second woman of sexual misconduct in a report Sunday night. Deborah Ramirez, 53, spoke out to the New Yorker‘s Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow with new claims that Kavanaugh, at a dorm party at Yale University in the 1980s, exposed himself and thrust his penis in her face. Conway dismissed Ramirez as a “so-called accuser” in her interview on CBS This Morning. “Indeed, this is starting to feel like a vast left wing conspiracy,” Conway added. Later on in the interview, Conway was asked if Ramirez “made this up,” and the White House aide pointed out the “gaps in her knowledge.” “There’s a great deal of suspicion,” Conway added, arguing the New Yorker report has less “evidence” than other stories by Ronan Farrow.

Ronan Farrow: New Kavanaugh Accuser Came Forward Because Democrats ‘Came Looking’

Ronan Farrow’s run of bombshell reports continued over the weekend when the New Yorker published an article (co-authored with Jane Mayer) that detailed new allegations of sexual misconduct of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. These new charges come to light while the Senate Judiciary Committee had been negotiating details surrounding public testimony of Dr. Christine Ford who had been at the center of previous allegations that are threatening to derail the Trump appointee’s confirmation. Republican critics have suggested that the Democrats have done everything they can to delay and stall a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination, perhaps in hopes that other accusers would step forward. In an appearance on Good Morning America today, Farrow did little to dispel that skeptical claim, saying that the new accusation came to light after Senate Democrats went looking for this claim. A rough transcript of the interview:

The White House sent out a late-night email that focused on certain excerpts from the New Yorker bombshell report of new college-era allegations of sexual misconduct by embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Amid weekend negotiations for Thursday hearing for Dr. Christine Ford, the New Yorker dropped a new bombshell report that Senate Democrats are investigating a new allegation that dates back to the 1983-84 school year when Kavanaugh was a student at Yale. Stormy Daniels‘ lawyer Michael Avenatti also weighed into the controversy surrounding the accusation made against Kavanaugh by claiming he represents a woman with “credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.” The statement included Ramirez’s own acknowledgments of uncertainty and denials from Continue reading "White House Pushes Back on New Yorker’s Kavanaugh Report: ‘Significant Gaps’ In Accusers’ Memories"

Joe Scarborough: Kavanaugh Nomination ‘Will Come Down to Who is Best on Television’

New allegations of past sexual misconduct of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh came to light over the weekend, further imperiling the already troubled confirmation process for the Trump appointee. With Dr. Christine Ford set to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify over the potential derailing allegations, Joe Scarborough and panel took issue with the “presumed innocent” standards of pro-Kavanaugh opinionators.  Since this is not a criminal court of law, the standard is not proof of guilt or innocence, but rather a political standard of character. Or as Scarborough summed up, “who presents best who is the most believable who nods their head at the appropriate time who doesn’t sort of have nervous flop sweat who is best on television. That’s what this has come down to it’s going to be a gut instinct who do you believe of course.” Scarborough continued “we’re not going to be talking Continue reading "Joe Scarborough: Kavanaugh Nomination ‘Will Come Down to Who is Best on Television’"
