Senate Judiciary Twitter Account Drops Fact Bombs On Democrats

Tim Pearce | Energy Reporter

The Senate Judiciary Committee struck back at Democrats Thursday for suggesting Republicans are stifling further investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after he was accused of sexual assault in high school.

California researcher Christine Blasey Ford alleged Kavanaugh attempted to forcibly take her clothes off while he was drunk at a party in high school. She alleged Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, was in the room at the time and witnessed everything. Ford is calling for an FBI investigation into the incident before she will agree to testify to her charges in front of the Judiciary committee.

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island alleged that GOP members of the committee are misdirecting Americans about the committee’s activity relating to an investigation into Kavanaugh. The GOP “wants to hang Dr. Ford out there on her testimony alone without any benefit of corroborating evidence.”

The Senate Judiciary Twitter account fired back in a string of tweets directed at Whitehouse over the allegations, restating the steps the Republican members of the committee has taken in investigating Ford’s claims. Democrats have refused to contribute to the investigation, despite offers from the GOP.
