Is Judge Kavanaugh about to have a #Metoo moment?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has reported to the FBI an allegation concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh that appeared to be connected to an incident of potential sexual abuse when he was a teenager, a person familiar with the matter said.
If the allegation has any basis, this is likely to be only the first drop in a leaky faucet of allegations against the Judge, if history and criminology provide any guide.
Could Kavanaugh be brought as low as Yahya Yuksel by a single allegation of misconduct as a teenager? If there is justice in the world, maybe; but there isn’t so much of that, and Kavanaugh is at the peak of his career, not a naive young man starting out in public life, so likely not.
We only need two votes to block Kavanaugh if the Dems hang together. Here’s hoping that Kavanaugh gets some just desserts.
