Questions of the political effects of the showdown on Kavanaugh
Analysts: Some red-state Democrats see the Kavanaugh’s accusations as a cover against Trump nominated; response to ‘the number.’
The Yale law professor accused, said judge Brett Kavanaugh had only legal workers, “looked blown up like models”, which claim, says the Supreme Court nominee only “litmus test” for hiring excellence”.”
The Guardian reported on Thursday that Yale law Professor Amy Chua advise students that it was “no coincidence” that Kavanaugh female employees saw all of the “models,” and reportedly provided fashion advice for female students to prepare for interview with him.
The article also quoted former students who alleged that Chua’s husband, Yale law Professor Jed Ruben field, also said that the students Kavanaugh liked a certain “look.”
Chua denied the claims, noting that Kavanaugh’s was the only “litmus test” for the setting “excellence.”
“He represents only the best-qualified employees, and they were multi-talented as well as exceptional and capable,” Chua said in a statement. “There is good reason why so many of them already have the Supreme Court block placements; he only hires qualified those who are extraordinary.”
Yale law Professor Amy Chua, left, and the man, Yale law Professor Jed Ruben field, to the right, have a daughter, the clerk for judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Of the 48 employees, worked with Kavanaugh on 12 years on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, 25 were women.
In July, Chua an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal wrote, the approval of Kavanaugh’s nomination to the high court and praised him as a “mentor for women.”
“As I wrote in the Wall Street Journal, he was also an extraordinary mentor to his female employees, and a champion in your career,” Chua said in a statement. “Among my proudest moments as a parent was the day I learned that our daughter would be rows of those.”
Chua is the daughter of a clerk in the Kavanaugh chambers.
A former Kavanaugh clerk from 2007 to 2008, Porter Wilkinson, also blasted the claims, calling them “offensive.”
“Judge Kavanuagh hires law clerks based solely on your wits and skills,” Wilkinson said in a statement to Fox News. “The only thing we all have in common is that we worked hard and proved ourselves able to meet its strict requirements in terms of content. Otherwise, the 48-by us, are diverse by gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, geography, political conviction, religion, education, socio-economic background, and so much more.”
She added: “It is offensive and demeaning to recommend for all to judge Kavanaugh hired law clerks based on something other than merit.”
Kavanaugh is currently in an intensive inspections after allegations surfaced last week that he sexually assaulted a woman while in high school in the 1980s.
Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who made the allegations, claimed, at a party, 36 years ago, Kavanaugh requested a low-pinned it, tried to remove her bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth, screaming as she tried. Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, said her client as “an attempted rape.”
Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the accusations and has offered to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, under oath.
Through their lawyers this week, Ford demanded that the FBI launch an investigation into the allegations prior to her appearance. On Thursday afternoon, Ford’s lawyers said they would be willing to testify should the Committee be able to guarantee your safety.
“This is a completely false claim. I’ve never done something that describes the Prosecutor said to her, or anyone,” Kavanaugh said in a statement Monday. “Because it never happens, I had no idea who made the accusation, until they are identified [on Sunday.]”
Ford’s identity was first revealed in a Washington Post article on Sunday. Your allegations first surfaced after a Senate judiciary Committee ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., received your letter with the Details of the alleged incident.
More than five dozen women who knew, Kavanaugh, while in high school wrote a letter in his defense, calling him a “good man”.
