EXCLUSIVE: Pelosi releases statement on Kavanaugh confirmation

OCTOBER 6, 2018

Following the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh in a 50-48 Senate vote Saturday afternoon, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted out a statement saying that “today is a profoundly heart-breaking day for women, girls and families across America.”

Pelosi vowed to file a Freedom of Information Act request “so that the public can see the FBI report transcripts” of the recently completed investigation by the FBI into the allegations made against him. In their report, the FBI reportedly stated none of the witnesses interviewed could back up the claims which had been launched against Kavanaugh during the last days of his confirmation process.

Below is the full statement which Pelosi posted on her website Saturday:

Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after Republicans confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court:

“Today is a profoundly heart-breaking day for women, girls and families across America.

“Courageous women risked their safety and well-being to speak truth about this nomination. Tens of thousands more joined them to share their own harrowing stories of sexual assault, at great personal risk. Yet, Senate Republicans chose to send a clear message to all women: do not speak out, and if you do – do not expect to be heard, believed or respected.

“In purposely limiting the FBI investigation, it is clear the Republicans were not seeking the truth. They were seeking cover to do what they wanted to do anyway. To add insult to injury, they blocked the public’s access to the report. Their goal was to install a nominee on the highest court in the land who will put the President above the law, with no regard to the Constitution.

“Therefore, I am announcing that I will file a Freedom of Information Act request so that the public can see the FBI report, transcripts of the underlying interviews, instructions sent to the FBI from the White House, and any communications to the FBI from Senate Republicans regarding the scope of the investigation.

“The conduct of the Senate Republican Majority did violence to the reputation of both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Supreme Court. We must proceed in a judicious manner to set the record straight and ensure that this never happens again.”

    It is not the Right that is demeaning women. It is the Left that is using them for political mayhem. Her hate for our president for doing the job that they could not do is deafening. Please grow up and work with President Trump to Make America great again!!

    I am a sexual assault survivor from my teen years. That portion of my life was dealt with and it is over. The nomination and confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court or any accusations made against him has absolutely NOTHING to do with me or what I went through when I was young. I was victimized by ONE individual and no one else in this world had anything to do with it…including Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Nancy Pelosi does not speak for me and her unconstitutional mindset is very insulting to me, as a woman. She thinks she is speaking for all women when in reality she seeks power, control and is trying to push the one world order agenda on all US citizens through the use of brainwashing and drama. Sorry, but her true motives are quite clear. Nancy Pelosi, STOP trying to use true victims to further your agenda!

    Deer Pelosi, if anyone holds guilt here, it should be Dr Ford, for letting the Democratic party use her as a Pawn to try and block a good judge from filling a seat on the Supreme Court. FIENSTIEN should turn in her resignation as a Senator, for she knew from day one this was all a Smear and a Lie. As a victim of rape at the age of 9 and now 51 years later I have neve forgotten one detail, it just doesn’t happen, and u just know when someone claiming to be a victim is real or is lying. It was very evident from a woman with the credentials she had and being a doctor in psychology talking like a 10 year old. This woman and the Democratic party has not only destroyed a man’s good name, but also his family for Ever. And has also caused many death threats to them as well as to other senators. Kavanaugh and his family’s lives will forever be changed for the worse, and will always have to look over their shoulders. Also this will cause many teenage girls, boys, women, or men for that matter, to be Afraid now to come forward when sexuality asulted or raped even more so than before, because they will feel not only no one will believe them, but also feel it would be made into a circus as this was. Dr. Ford and her lawyers should be charged with perjury to the fullest extent, and the money she Received from a GoFundMe account should be given too Real victim’s funds. U could say that judge Kavanaugh and his family is Victims of rape in a different kind of way, of his good name, character, and the quality life they had before it was destroyed. The Democratic party has once again made a Mockery of the United States of America, only to Block a seat on the Supreme Court , and Shamed Her again to the World. If I were a Democrat I would certainly Hide myself from SHAME. I pray this judge wI’ll bring suit against Ford, her Lawyers,, and the Democratic party for defamation and any other charges possible, because God knows u All Deserve it. But I have doubts that he will, because he said him and his family means no ill will to Dr Ford. And I’m sure he also would never lower his good standard to the low of Dr Ford and the Democrates. But no worries to the people because u and the rest of the The Demarcrates are making your own selves pay for your EVIL U do. HAVE A NICE DAY….
