Lawyer Debra Katz represents Brett Kavanaugh Prosecutor Christine Ford.


Lawyer Debra Katz made the rounds on Monday to argue on morning TV, her client of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should be taken seriously, a plea, accepted by the White house.

But while your customer cases party damage cross-cutting concerns about Kavanaugh, Katz, a longtime Democratic donor known for the appearance of sexual harassment, the Prosecutor, also has to play a story down, or to reject accusations by women against democratic politicians-including former President Bill Clinton and former Minnesota sen. Al Franken.

“Paula Jones’ suit is very, very, very weak,” Katz said on CNN’s “Talkback Live” in March 1998, in a discussion about Jones’ claims against Clinton, according to a show transcript. “You allegedly found an incident in a hotel room, which lasted by her own testimony, 10 to 12 minutes. They had no impact on the workplace.”

Jones, who worked as an employee of the government in Arkansas, accused Clinton, while Governor of Arkansas in 1991, in the he her for sex. Clinton settled a lawsuit with Jones in the year 1998.


Katz, in other media appearances, initially highlighted, the town hall, suggested Jones didn’t have much of a case.

“Clearly a one-off incident, occurred in 10 to 12 minutes, she was forced to have sex, she left on her own will-power, the courts are increasingly to be found, which is enough to a sexually hostile work environment claim,” Katz said in April 1998, according to a transcript from CBS Evening News.


Kavanaugh issues new denial-of-sexual-misconduct allegation

“If a woman pattern that someone in the company made her an immoral request, but only once, and you suffered no tangible job detriment,” Katz told The New York Times in 1998, came to me with a similar fact, “I would probably tell her that I’m sorry, it’s unfair, but you don’ T have a case.”

Katz, in an interview with the newspaper, “If there is a time, it must be hard, almost a sexual assault, not just a contact from someone at the breast or buttocks, or even violent kiss.”

In the last few years, Katz also down the wave of sexual misconduct accusations against the Swiss franc played, denied some of the allegations, but eventually resigned from the Senate.

“The context is relevant,” Katz said, of the Franks, was a comedian, before his election to the Senate. “He did this as a member of the U.S. Senate. He did this in his property to someone who still works as an entertainer.”

Katz, the representative Christine Ford, a registered Democrat, has accused Kavanaugh is now, to remove while in high school more than 30 years ago, pinning you down, try on your bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth, screaming as she tried.

On Monday, Katz said in the NBC’s “Today” to appear that your client would be willing, in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to develop, to make their claims.

“She is ready to take what it takes to continue their story,” said Katz.

Katz also said bluntly that Ford claims is, Kavanaugh tried to rape her.

“It is clear that this is an attempted rape. She believes that if it were not for the heavy poisoning of the Kavanaugh, you would have been raped,” said Katz, “Today.”

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh a violent sexual assault denied the allegations against him on Monday.

“This is a completely false claim. I’ve never done something that describes the Prosecutor said to her, or to anyone,” Kavanaugh,.

He added, “Since this never happened, I had no idea who made the accusation, until you identified yesterday. I’m ready to talk to the Senate judiciary Committee in any manner that the Committee deems appropriate, to refute this false claim, of 36 years, and defend my integrity.”
