About "More on Kavanaugh"
Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee began on September 4. Christine Blasey Ford has come out in recent weeks to testify about sexual misconduct accusations. The testimonies occurred on Thursday where Ford stated her emotional testimony, as did Judge Kavanaugh who had to fight back tears when denying all allegations.
Surprisingly, the conversation has not boiled down to whether or not the accusations are true, but if we should even consider the evidence based on how it became public in the first place. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican has called for an investigation on the Democratic party into how they handled Ford’s accusations. He and other republicans have made claims that the original letter of Ford’s story was leaked, instead of properly submitted.
Over the weekend this controversy has turned into a very sticky situation. On one side we have people believing Ford. On another side, others believe that this is all to smear Kavanaugh and to forever destroy his reputation, and even others, like Graham are questioning the Democrat’s accountability in victimizing both Ford and Kavanaugh.
This week’s topics of debate include the Kavanaugh hearings, racial tensions, Elon Musk, Italy’s financial problems, whether public apologies matter much, and more!
