Three women associated with the 11th hour sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh (including the accuser herself) have all reportedly received death threats.
Judge Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, received violent threats this week following the allegations against her husband, a senior Trump administration official said Thursday. The U.S. Marshals Service is investigating the emails.
Mrs. Kavanaugh received two profane notes in her work email account in recent days, the official said. Both notes, which have been reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, were sent from the same email address.
Citing intelligence reports, the official said that “Threats, including to his (Judge Kavanaugh’s) wife, have risen this week.”
One note to Mrs. Kavanaugh, a town manager in the Washington, D.C. suburbs read, “May you, your husband and your kids burn in hell.”
The other, whose subject line reads, “Hi, Ashley,” said she should tell her husband to “put a bullet in his … skull.”
Dr. Ford has relocated from their northern California home amid online intimidation and death threats, according to her lawyers.
Another recipient of disturbing threats is Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine), whose vote is crucial to the outcome.
“My office has received some pretty ugly voice mail threats, terrible things said to my staff, so this has been a very ugly process and I think that’s very unfortunate,” Ms. Collins said on a Maine radio show Wednesday.
The Kavanaughs met in 2001 when both worked in the White House under former Republican President George W. Bush.
One person close to the confirmation process said that Mrs. Kavanaugh is “devastated” to see him “being attacked this way.” But she doesn’t want him to drop out and Judge Kavanaugh is committed to winning confirmation, people close to the couple said.
Democrats are just doing wonders for the #MeToo movement, aren't they?
For the past 24 hours, Ed Whelan (NRO, Bench Memos) has been teasing that he has exonerating info on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations.
Here's the scoop:
Read the entire thread. If Whelan is correct, this is a case of mistaken identity and a guy named Chris Barrett has some 'splainin' to do.
Good grief, enough already:
Senator Grassley needs to shut this down.
