News in the United States is rife with the claims of sexual harassment and misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The POTUS has responded to these claims recently and gave a statement about it.
Trump talked about how Judge Kavanaugh is a man of principles, and not someone who would partake in such heinous activities. He said, “Judge Kavanaugh is one of the finest people that I’ve ever known. He’s an outstanding intellect and an outstanding judge, respected by everybody, never had even a little blemish on his record. The FBI has, I think, gone through a process six times him over the years, where he went to higher and higher positions. He is somebody very special.”
Trump further went on to call out the Democrats for holding onto the information for weeks and not talking about it at the right time. Trump said, “At the same time, we want to go through a process, we want to make sure everything is perfect, everything is just right. I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months and they shouldn’t have waited until literally the last days, they should have done it a lot sooner.”
He further talked about the purposeful delay by mentioning, “One thing I will say is that, as I understand it, Judge Kavanaugh spent quite a bit of time with Senator Feinstein and it wasn’t even brought up at that meeting, and she had this information. So you would have thought, certainly, that she would have brought it up at the meeting, not wait until everything’s finished and then have to start a process all over again.”
It’s quite clear that all is not as is being reported about the Judge, and Trump’s administration has a point with its claims.
