Pro-Kavanaugh lobbyist claims conservatives are ‘galvanized’ by sexual assault allegations against him

Published

on

A lobbyist working to get Brett Kavanaugh confirmed believes conservatives have been “galvanized” by the mounting sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

Carrie Severino, the chief counsel with the Judicial Crisis Network, told the New York Times that the White House is “clearly very strongly behind” Kavanaugh — and so is Donald Trump’s base.

“If anything,” Severino added, “I’m seeing conservatives more galvanized by what is going on because it has become such a pattern of unsubstantiated smears and character assassination.”

The Times noted that the Kavanaugh support extended far beyond lobbying groups working to get him confirmed and into Congress.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, for example, is expected to give a speech in defense of the Supreme Court nominee this afternoon. In it, he will explain “why [Kavanaugh] will make an exceptional justice,” the Times reported.

“Was there a ‘quid pro quo’?” Sondland said in his testimony to the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday. "The answer is ‘yes.’”

Sondland further claimed that “everyone was in the loop” and all actions were “directed” by the president.

The latest GOP defense of Trump crumbles in impeachment hearing

Published

on

It was a day of blockbuster day of testimony from E.U. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, in which Sondland — who once gave Donald Trump a million dollars for his inauguration — decided to save his own hide by ratting out not just Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, but seemingly half the senior staff of the White House.
