Sen. Hirono: Susan Collins 'Insulting' Ford By Saying Someone Else Assaulted Her

‘Hold them LIABLE!’ Trump in BLISTERING attack on those who opposed Kavanaugh nomination

Sen. Susan Collins said Saturday that while she believes that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was sexually assaulted, she does not believe that now-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh did it. The Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the nation's highest court with a 50-48 vote Saturday, and he was sworn in a few hours later. "And I know it for a fact because I spoke with her, she didn't stop".

"I'm going to do what I think is right".

Collins told the TV station she is aware that groups like the Maine People's Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership, are looking to takeover her seat in 2020.

"Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to be a rubber stamp on his war on health care was a true test of Senator Collins's commitment to health care", said Protect Our Care's Leslie Dach, which paid for the ads. I will not be intimidated by that no matter how much money that they raise. "I applaud her efforts".

"Over the years, the people of Maine have trusted me to exercise my best judgment". "I have met with them in Maine, I've met with them here (in Washington), I've met with them through video conference". Protests grew following numerous allegations against the judge regarding sexual assault as well as evidence that he committed perjury during his confirmation hearings and a partisan tirade in which he claimed "the left" orchestrated the allegations and threatened, "What goes around comes around".

Hirono was not alone in her concerns about Collins' speech on the Senate floor on Friday and the decision to vote for Kavanaugh. "I'm not certain when", Collins added in a separate interview on CNN's "State of the Union".

Brett Kavanaugh moves towards Supreme Court confirmation after long, bitter fight

Kavanaugh sworn into Supreme Court after divisive fight
McConnell has cast Kavanaugh's opponents, many of whom protested in the halls of the Senate and yelled at lawmakers, as "the mob". Democrats have said that an FBI investigation into the allegations that Trump ordered was too limited in scope to be useful.

Collins' wholehearted embrace of these vapid GOP talking points is emblematic of her entire justification for supporting Kavanaugh, which basically consisted of her closing her eyes and plugging her ears to information that would prove inconvenient to the creation of a conservative Supreme Court majority.

Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor from California, accused Kavanaugh of groping her during a high school party in 1982.

Ford's lawyers told NBC News on Sunday that Ford and her family have still been unable to return to their home due to the death threats she continues to face after testifying against Kavanaugh on Sep. 27. "So then I had to look at the other evidence, and was there corroborating evidence, and that's why I pushed hard for the FBI to do a supplemental background investigation". Kavanaugh has denied all allegations.

"Many people have thanked me for my vote and have said that they were very pleased that I did the right thing, " she said Sunday after an event honoring a slain sheriff's deputy. I mean, that is so devastating.

In Washington, President Donald Trump said today that he thought Collins was "incredible" and that she "gave an impassioned, attractive speech". So I think it was understandable that he was reacting as a human being, as a father, as a father of two young girls. "And I was glad that he apologized to Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) in particular".
