SUBJECT LINE: A predator and a liar
This has been an excruciating week for survivors of sexual assault, and for women in general. We remember what the Senate put Anita Hill through, and it’s infuriating to see Dr. Blasey Ford have to suffer the same misery. This week was a stark reminder that the men who are running our country see women as objects to be raped and discarded.
Our outrage has made an impact: senators agreed to move forward with an FBI investigation before the confirmation vote. But make no mistake: the White House has placed significant limits on that investigation, and it’s clear that the GOP still expects to confirm Brett Kavanaugh before midterms.
We could still see to it that Kavanaugh is impeached. But that will only happen if we take back Congress.
