Suburban women wrestle with Kavanaugh allegations

25 days ago   |   By

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - For women like Jayne A. Cordes, the steady stream of investigations in Washington is exhausting. That's why, when Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her more than three decades ago, it struck Cordes as the latest example of the ceaseless - and needless - drama in the capital.
“It's shenanigans,” said Cordes, an independent who voted for President Donald Trump and lives in the suburbs south of Denver. “It just seems like everybody is open to any kind of allegation because they don't like...

Attacks on Feinstein backfire on California challenger

25 days ago   |   By

Kevin de León, Sen. Dianne Feinstein's November opponent, accused her last week of “gross misconduct” for waiting months to flag a sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh - seizing on the Supreme Court firestorm to jump-start his long-shot campaign.

25 days ago   |   By

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when the two were in high school in the 1980s, has become the target of a disinformation campaign on social media.

How the U.S. Senate Became a Campus Kangaroo Court

25 days ago   |   By

Christine Blasey Ford deserves a hearing, although at the moment it's not clear if she really wants one. What she doesn't deserve is to be believed automatically just because she's a woman making an accusation. When our system of justice is at its best, it judges each individual-the accuser and the accused-fairly, on the basis of the evidence, and with an adversarial process that has proved over the centuries the best way to ascertain the truth. Ford's charge is serious by any standard, and despite the shameful way it was handled-Senator Dianne Feinstein sat on it for weeks, until it...

25 days ago   |   By

Democrats will “get to the bottom” of Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh if they take control of the House or Senate after this fall's midterms, one Senate Judiciary Committee member said Thursday.

Whitehouse's comments point to a continued Democratic focus on Kavanaugh that could help turn out liberal voters in November...
