Exclusive: RNC Blasts Media For Ignoring The Women Who Have Come To Kavanaugh’s Defense
The RNC attacked the media for focusing on the two women who have levied accusations of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh, while not giving the multitude of women who have supported him the same platform on Tuesday night.
To promote those stories of women defending Kavanaugh the GOP is streaming a 35-minute compilation of clips on loop on their YouTube page from now until the Senate hearing on Thursday morning.
“The media has largely ignored the hundreds of women who actually know Judge Kavanaugh and have stood up to speak out in support of him. While the mainstream media refuses to give these women an equal voice in this conversation, the RNC will give them the opportunity to be heard,” RNC Press Secretary Cassie Smedile said to The Daily Caller.
65 women wrote a letter to Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassley and ranking member Sen. Feinstein defending Kavanaugh’s character earlier this month. The letter read in part, “We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect. We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time.” (RELATED: 65 Women From Kavanaugh’s High School Years Defend Judge In Letter To Senate)
The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a vote for Friday a day after Kavanaugh and one of the accusers are scheduled to testify in front of the committee. (RELATED: Breaking: Senate Judiciary Committee Will Vote On Kavanaugh On Friday)
