KAVANAUGH: I WILL NOT BE DRIVEN OUT BY SMEARS

By CNSNews.com Staff

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nomimated by President Donald Trump to the Supreme Court, sent a letter today to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R.-Iowa) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) declaring that he would not be "intimidated" into withdrawing from his nomination and that he was looking forward to testifying under oath before the Judiciary Committeee on Thursday.

"I sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee for more than 31 hours and answered quesions under oath. I then answered more questions at a confidential session. The following week, I responded to more than 1,200 written questions, more than have been submitted to all previous Supreme Court nominees combined. Only after that exhaustive process was complete did I learn, through the news media, about a 36-year-old allegation from high school that had been asserted months earlier and withheld from me throughout the hearing process."

"First it was an anonymous allegation that I categorically and unequivocally denied. Soon after the accuser was identified, I repeated my denial on the record and made clear that I wished to appear before the Committee. I then repeated my denial to Committee investigators--under criminal penalites for false statements. All of the witnesses identified by Dr. Ford as being present at the party she describes are on the record to the Committee saying they have no recollection of any such party happening. I asked to testify before the Committee again under oath as soon as possible, so that both Dr. Ford and I could both be heard. I thank Chairman Grassley for scheduling that hearing for Thursday."

"Last night, another false and uncorroborated accusation from 35 years ago was published," Kavanaugh wrote. "Once again, those alleged to have been witnesses to the event deny it ever happened. There is no a frenzy to come up with something--anything--that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation occurring."

"These are smears, pure and simple," he wrote. "And they debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination--if allowed to succeed--will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service.

"As I told the Committee during my hearing," he said, "a federal judge must be independent, not swayed by public or political pressure. That is the kind of judge I will always be. I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out."
