After Diane Feinstein came out with an anonymous allegation that Brett Kavanaugh forced himself onto a woman while drunk in Highschool.
A group of 65 women have come to the defense of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing an allegation of sexual misconduct from the early 1980s in the lead-up to his confirmation vote.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday released a letter from the women, who said they have known Kavanaugh for more than 35 years, including during his years at Georgetown Preparatory School, an all-boys school in North Bethesda, Md.
“For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect,” the women wrote in the letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. “We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time.”
The 65 signatories said they knew Kavanaugh through various activities and have remained close to him and his family.
“Through the more than 35 years we have known him, Brett has stood out for his friendship, character, and integrity,” the women wrote. “In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect. That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day.”
