White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway issued a statement about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser on Monday. Conway believes that the accuser accusations of sexual assault should not be ignored and both should testify under oath about the alleged incident.
According to Fox News:
The White House said Monday that the Senate Judiciary Committee is leaning toward inviting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser to testify before the panel, as the woman’s attorney said she would be willing to appear.
Christine Ford, a California-based professor, revealed her identity in a Washington Post report on Sunday, following her letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., alleging sexual assault. She said that Kavanaugh, 36 years ago while in high school, pinned her down, tried to remove her bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth when she attempted to scream.
But White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday on “Fox & Friends” that both Ford and Kavanaugh should be heard on the accusations.
“This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored. I think the Senate is headed toward a reasonable approach, allowing this woman to be heard in sworn testimony, allowing Judge Kavanaugh to be heard in sworn testimony,” Conway said. “I spoke with the president, I spoke with Senator [Lindsey] Graham and others. This woman will be heard.”
Kavanaugh has unequivocally denied the allegations that supposedly happened when he was in high school.
