As kavanaugh pointed out, she asked for anonymity.
It was a political operation that exposed her.
She was lawyering up in august almost a month before the allegation came forward
This isn’t a trial this is a witch hunt
An anonymous accusation would have been worse
this is common is dem playbook see: trump, herman cain, clarence thomas. difference is the #metoo movement
in past we would not have allowed the circus without real evidence
in the mean time keith ellison wins elections
@Faticati I agree if they would have allowed it to remain anonymous it would have been worse
we have a right to face our accusers.
What I do not understand is why you want to destroy the accuser when you don't have to to make your case?
Apparently, we do because believe all women.
It's about as self destructive as saying 'boys will be boys' to dismiss the accusations
If Judge Kavanaugh doesn't get the nomination what job can he get?
Also why do we have to destroy the accuser?
I agree with you to an extent but that is a separate issue
regardless of whether he's put on scotus democrats are going to try to impeach him.
If the Dems weren't playing politics they would have investigated and nothing would have happened because she hasn't provided evidence.
Your stance is to burn the protection that burden of proof applies
Lying to Congress is a crime
they crafted the accusation vague enough so she couldn't be jailed.
And you are convicting her in the court of public opinion
You're no better than them in that regard
There's a cultural issue plaguing both sides.
This is extremely simple NO EVIDENCE NO BELIEF
I am saying this never should have gotten this far.
Right now outside they're saying believe all women.
What I don't get is the automatic dismissal of someone's testimony based on the fact that she's unclear on certain details.
'false in one, false in all'
Is a legal principle
A person can be sure something happened in childhood and not remember the date/time.
Yeah, why dismiss on lack of evidence? /s
there needs to be corroborating witnesses and/or evidence. individual testimony is worth very little, even less if there is no specificity or if it's unfalsifiable.
witnesses deny it happened, even her friend
if you want to help women who have been victimized you need to start teaching young girls to immediately come forward when they have been victimized, and to go to the police. the police. not friends, not family, no teachers, or therapists. the police.
she didn't even do that
Why would the friend remember? She was downstairs.
and it's not victim blaming to tell young girls not to engage in demonstrably stupid and risky activities.
like underage drinking at a party where you don't know anyone.
